Bob Barker

Bomb Squad

Called to TV Icon's House

EXCLUSIVE

A bomb squad rushed to Bob Barker's house Friday afternoon after a suspicious package was reported at the TV icon's home, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bob's housekeeper noticed the package inside the front gate of his Hollywood Hills home around 1:00PM and informed Bob's biz manager. We're told the biz manager then reported the package to police.

According to sources, LAPD responded to the scene with a bomb squad and inspected the package.

After a quick investigation, we're told the squad determined the package just contained medication -- no explosives or other dangerous substances. The bandage on Bob's head in the photo is unrelated.

Once police determined the package was safe, they cleared the scene. No injuries, no nothing. End of story.

"Price Is Right" Model Sues

Producer Verbally Attacked Me

While I Was Naked

0907_lanisha_cole_labeled_getty_BNA former "Price Is Right" model is suing two of the show's producers for sexual harassment -- claiming one even verbally accosted her in the dressing room ... while she was "naked and exposed."

Lanisha Cole, the longest tenured model on TPIR, filed the lawsuit today in L.A. County Superior Court, accusing producers Michael Richards and Adam Sandler -- coincidentally, NOT THE ACTORS -- of harassing and abusing her in the workplace.

On one occasion last year, according to Lanisha's lawyer, Sandler barged into her dressing room to berate her for not wearing a microphone -- and "at the time, she was completely naked and exposed, except for a very sheer thong bikini underwear bottom."

According to her lawyer, Sandler proceeded to loudly chastise Lanisha in front of the other models "without even trying to turn away or avert his eyes from her nakedness."

Lanisha says she filed a formal complaint with the show's HR department weeks later -- but claims the show's production company brushed her off for months ... and ultimately did nothing about the alleged harassment. Lanisha says she quit in December.

Now, she wants payback -- seeking damages for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, false imprisonment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Lanisha also makes it clear host Drew Carey has NOT been accused of any wrongdoing. Calls to TPIR haven't been returned.

Barker's Beauty -- I Was ALSO Fired for Being Preggo!

Another former "Price is Right" model claims she was axed from the show because she got knocked up -- and she specifically blames Bob Barker for forcing her out.

Shane Stirling claims that right after she announced that she was pregnant in December 2006, she was "forced into an early pregnancy leave, was not allowed to return to work for almost a year after her child's birth, and was fired abruptly."

In a lawsuit, filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court, Stirling claims Barker had a significant role in her termination -- claiming, "The host of the game show had always been very kind and generous to Stirling until he learned that she was pregnant."

Stirling claims Barker insisted that she wouldn't work while she was pregnant because it was "dangerous" and a "liability" ... an advised her to "go home and take care of your baby."

Stirling claims she was finally allowed to return to the show in 2008 -- after Barker had left -- but was soon told that the show was "going in another direction" and was subsequently fired.

In her suit, Stirling claims that if she had "been allowed to return to work sooner after having her baby, she could have become acquainted with the new people working on the game show and thereby would have had a better chance to retain her job."

She's now suing for more than $25,000.

As we previously reported, another Barker's Beauty -- Brandi Cochran -- is also suing the show, claiming staffers treated her so bad when she became pregnant ... that she had a miscarriage.

FremantleMedia, the company that produces "Price," had no comment.
