Drew Carey

I Feel 'Really Bad' About

Bob Barker Situation

Drew Carey says Bob Barker is DEAD WRONG to think he was intentionally excluded from a "Price Is Right" 40th Anniversary special ... telling TMZ the whole thing was just a giant misunderstanding.

Barker has been griping publicly about his beef with "Price" ... claiming he was "ignored" from the special because he criticized the show for giving away prizes to organizations which he believes are "notorious for animal abuse."

But Carey tells us Barker is simply misinformed ... saying, "It wasn't because of animosity or anything like that ... nobody has anything against him ... it just didn't occur to anybody to invite him personally to be on the show because it was a salute to contestants."

Carey adds, "Nobody has anything against Bob Barker ... everybody loves Bob Barker."

Bob Barker called in to TMZ Live this week to discuss the snub.

One of the funniest scenes ever in movies...Bob Barker and Adam Sandler kicking each other's asses in Happy Gilmore.
"The price is wrong, bitch!" :D

Not buying it, Drew. Bob Barker is "The Price Is Right". If none of you thought of him, then you are all idiots. And I think Bob is entitled to his views on animal rights, and I agree with many of his views, but he doesn't have the right to get mad at people that don't agree with him.

wow... I don't want to call drew a liar but he must be the mis-informed one (or maybe just not in the executive loop) cause that's just lame. It only takes an IQ of 10 to say, "oh, a Price is right special... Someone call bob barker immediately!" Even Adam Sandler Remembered the Barker!

There is no Price is Right without Bob Barker. I would rather watch the reruns with him than the new one. All the years he did that show, at the end of his last one his final words were about rescuing animals. Class act.

I have nothing against Drew Carey, but I wonder what a body language expert would make of his video clip. He seems extremely uncomfortable, stumbles over his words, and barely makes eye contact. Sure looks to me like he's lying through his teeth.

So what you're saying is that Bob Barker wasn't in any of the video clips shown to salute the contestants????
Talk all you want, Drew Carey, but if you thought anything at all for Mr. Barker you would have insisted he at least be given the option of appearing.

Who can you even HAVE a "Price Is Right" 40th Anniversary special w/o Bob Barker? Can't.

Drew should just say no comment. No one believes it was just an oversight to exclude the guy who is synonymous with the Price is Right. No one is blaming Drew, but it looks bad when he starts making excuses.

I used to like you Drew. Bob Barker is Price Is Right, he made it what it is today and they didn't think to include him in the 40th anniversary? BB hosted thek show for over 30 something years. It amazes me Drew that you can say that and not realize how absurd it is and that shows. It also shows the lack of respect you have for BB. After all if it wasn't for him none of y'all would have a job! The Balls yous got!
