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.

Why is her mouth as big as her ass? If she would let that cut under her beak heal, she wouldn't have to worry about opening it to change feet so often.

This ungratefull ranting bitch has no business on TV let alone doing a TV show like the Price is Right she needs to stay at home and keep her head buried between the legs of Kelli all day long so we don't have to hear from her or see her anymore! We will all be much better off she doesn't even like the Country she lives in because she has nothing to say good about it someone like this should not be on TV.

How about Bret Michaels or Scott Baio? They seem to need the $.
Rosie will not get the job. But she will get her own show (again) one of these days.

I always thought Bob was a respectable person and would uphold certain values,
BUT, how very wrong I was. Maybe, he is getting Alheizhemer's now that he is getting
so old and he just doesn't know any better and that is the reason for this act of
craziness over Rosie! WHATEVER...he is so very wrong to even suggest her for the
famous show, "THE PRICE IS RIGHT!" She would only RUIN this show, like she has
everything else she has ever done. Decent people don't like her and her big
loud mouth. She has no values at all and no respect for herself or others. She
should not be allowed to even be on public television, especially on a program that
children are able to watch. This is a bad mistake and Bob should be ashamed of
himself for even suggesting her. What is this world coming to...what is television
coming to? I know one thing, I will stop watching it when people like Rosie start
taking on programs like "TPIR" and others, they won't be fit to watch anymore, and
so I will just start reading or listening to music! Thanks.

How awquard it is going to be when one of our brave defenders of our country a person in the military gets up on stage in full dress and then they have to deal with someone like Rosie who clearly hates her country and if you simply disagree with her she calls you stupid and you must be a fool not to believe everything she bellows. It was so funny when she was telling the world 7 wtc was an inside job because fire cant melt steel what a moron how do you think they make steel tHay heat up ore [yes with fire] and it melts and runs out of the ore how do you think that cut steel with fire you idiot how do you think thay shape steel once again dopey with fire if she does TPIR I will haunt every sponsor on that show didn't bob say at the end of every show please god spay Rosie thank god he listened as she is not a breeder

Oh, please NO~don't do this CBS. Rosie is just too obnoxious~too much of a bully~is she going to tell the Plinko people off for not doing it her way? Probably yes.
Tell Rosie to go back to Miami~ride her jet ski's~got to her craft room & do her crafts & take care of Kelly & her children.
The American public is tired of Rosie O'Donnel & her self rightous bullyness.

We all have the right to be who we are and all of us are worthy of appreciation, love and support. Our culture today is obsessed with homophobia, which is both unhealthy and self-destructive to everyone. Members of the GLBT community continue to be targets of violence born of hate, ignorance and fear. We now live in a neurotic and violent society.
I am appalled at the ignorance, stereotyping and prejudice that prevails in our world. We are all spirits on a journey on this earth, all worthy of respect and love, no matter what the outside packaging resembles.
There are so many interesting and exciting people in this world, and judgment and prejudices towards each other only limit one's experiences on this earth. Tolerance of other people’s differences and love are the only things that are going to save us from killing each other off. Tolerance of other’s religion, race, culture, sexual preferences, etc., is the only saving factor.
We are a global community, and we must take off our blinders and quit being arrogant to those around us. We are not an island in a big sea, we are all experiencing life connected in many ways, and we must accept others for who they are, and quit killing each other for differences. We need to quit instilling hate into our youth and start teaching them to love one another and to tolerate one another. That is the only way we will survive in a global economy/world. We are no longer isolated from the rest of the world, and our ignorance towards this fact will be our demise.
That said, Rosie understands this and would be a GREAT host for TPIR.

Please, please do not hire Rosie for The Price is Right...I can't even believe you put her name in for discussion. I am not against gays...just against obnoxious people & behavior. Why does the media reward these obnoxious people with any airtime at all?
