Rosie -- Gimme Bob's Job Already!

6/19/2007 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It might be far from a sure thing, but Rosie O'Donnell seems like she's all ready to come on down and be the next host of "The Price is Right."

The former "View" flamethrower tells her fan-inquisitors at rosie.com that she's meeting with CBS this week to talk about "TPIR," and that she's all set to go if CBS asks her to take over the skinny mike from Bob Barker, who ended his 30-year run last Friday. "If they asked me, I sure would ... I LOVE THE PRICE IS RIGHT," she wrote. Barker endorsed Ro as his replacement over the weekend.

Of course, not everyone is thrilled about Rosie potentially plying players with Plinko. One reader wrote that a petition had already started for a "50-state sponsor boycott" should Rosie be chosen, to which O'Donnell spat back, "The only thing I want to gay up is you."

One thing everyone can take comfort in: Rosie says she'd keep Barker's signature sign-off about spaying and neutering.

I don't think the show would last long with Rosie on it. She is not right for that show.

If she wants the job, I hope she gets it. She's paid her dues working alongside Elisabeth.

Where can I sign that petition boycotting TPIR if Rosie is chosen as host??? She's a walking time bomb, and should NOT be in the public eye!

Barker's beauties would make Rosie salivate. Rosie is a fat, stupid, obnoxious and ignorant lesbian.

I hope Rosie will NOT NOT NOT get the job. She's too loud, rude and obnoxious. I hope the TV network won't give her the job or her own show unless its on HBO or Cinemax. Keep her away from the view of kids.

It's so interesting to me that so many people love to hate on Rosie. Obviously these people don't really know what kind of a great human being she is. If people really took the time to read about all the good things that Rosie has done over the years, they would not be such haters. Yes, she's bold and outspoken...Hooray for her! Too bad there are so many sheep who join the hate bandwagon and hate without thinking for themselves. You may disagree with her politics (I, however, totally agree with EVERYTHING she has to say about our current administration) and you may not like the delivery (many people are threatened by uppity women who speak their own minds) and maybe you're homophopic, but Rosie is a generous, compassionate, caring HUMAN BEING who has put her money, time, and attention to important causes to help many people, especially children.
I would LOVE to see Rosie as host of TPIR and hope CBS will not listen to all the mean haters and will instead give Rosie this chance to show her fun, caring side to a broader audience. If she is the new host I will be a new, daily viewer!! Go, Rosie!

Awww, Not This Crap Again!    

@ #156...."We are all different and have different points of view and it is ok to disagree and not like someone.....just try to keep some humanity, compassion and a wee bit of intelligence."

If only Rosie had done what you said, she would still be on The View, and the majority of soccer moms (like myself--except I'm 38 with a Master's Degree), wouldn't despise her so much (regardless of her orientation). If only she offered up some humanity, compassion and a wee bit of intelligence on political matters, she certainly could have influenced people with that big mouth of hers for the GOOD of the people, not for the dismantling of people in a pubic forum.

She is simply not a healthy person, and what she says DOES have a negative impact--not necessarily on those who can discern right from wrong, but, on more guliible/naive folks, who think she actually knows what she is talking about, and continue to cheer her on.

Since she is a high profile celebrity, and obviously a limousine liberal, she garners all kinds of attention from the liberal media elite, who are more than happy to broadcast her tirades. So, it's not that easy to turn off the TV, computer, or throw the newspaper away, in order to avoid the venom that she spews.

She is a disgusting, mentally unbalanced, hypocritical person, and a horrible role model--especially to her own children. Anyone who supports her is a bird of the same feather.

just asking    

I think if she take the job she will be good at it.

I agree with My View...She was great on the View. Best thing that ever happened to the View.

If you go back and look at some of the earky comments from the View and the Rosie O"Donnell show she was talking about the same things she talks about today. The difference then was that many American were agreeing with her on her politics and her view sagainst the current administration.

Thisi s a game show where would her political views come in at?

Stop hating on Rosie.

She got alot of couch potatoes to think about whats going on in the world and to stop buying all that you hear and see on the evening news.
