Bob Barker Out of Hospital Home for the Holidays

11/21/2018 10:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bob Barker is out of the hospital and back home recovering just in time for Thanksgiving ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the ex-'Price is Right' host tells us Bob was released from Cedars-Sinai Monday -- a day after he was rushed to the ER, and is now resting at his Hollywood Hills home.

We're told he's feeling better after suffering severe back pain this past weekend, but understands the road to full recovery will be long and slow -- especially at his age.

As we first reported ... Bob was taken to the hospital by ambulance Sunday for back pain. It was the second time in 2 months that he was rushed to a facility. He was also transported in October for the same issue -- back problems -- but appeared alert and conscious. 

As for how he plans to spend his time at home, we're told Bob will try to get some movement in every day to help his body heal and get stronger. It's unclear if he'll undergo any professional physical therapy.

Just as important though ... our sources say Bob will have family in town for Thanksgiving, who are going to be stopping by for a visit. 

Bob Barker Rushed to the Hospital Again ... For Severe Back Pain

EXCLUSIVE

Bob Barker was rushed to the hospital for the second time in 2 months, but it sounds like it's another case of a bad back ... TMZ has learned.

The former "Price is Right" host was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital by ambulance Sunday afternoon after suffering severe back pain at his Hollywood Hills home. 

His manager tells us Bob is doing better now that he's under a doctor's care, and that this most recent hospitalization comes as a result of severe back pain related to his 2017 fall. He's fallen at least one other time before -- a 2015 spill that split his head open.

We broke the story ... Bob was rushed to the ER this past October under similar circumstances. The 94-year-old was wheeled inside on a stretcher but seemed responsive.

Bob Barker Rushed to Hospital ... Serious Back Pain

EXCLUSIVE

Bob Barker is hospitalized in L.A. after paramedics responded to his Hollywood Hills home ... TMZ has learned.

L.A. Fire Department got to the 'Price is Right' legend's home Monday around 1 PM, and immediately transported him to Cedars-Sinai hospital. He was sitting up on a stretcher, and seemed responsive, as they wheeled him into the emergency room.

His manager tells us, Bob woke up Monday morning with a major flare in back pain. His family decided to call in the professionals to transport him to the hospital ... rather than risk it themselves.

94-year-old Bob suffered a nasty fall last year that required medical care ... and we're told he'd just gone to the hospital last week for a follow-up visit related to that fall.

Bob Barker Actual Retail Price Of My Recycling Bin is ...

5/24/2018 7:09 AM PDT

'Cause Bob Barker never REALLY retired, right?

Almost 11 years after hanging up his 'Price is Right' mic, Bob's still keeping busy and looking spry. He was dutifully bringing in his recycling bin Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles. Takes an especially down to Earth kinda guy to do his own chores ... at the ripe young age of 94! 

Sure ... he could be playing Hi-Lo, 3 Strikes, Switcheroo or Plinko in a roomful of screaming 20-somethings -- but then who'd take out the trash? Do you, Bob!

Oh, and don't forget to spay and neuter your pets.

Drew Carey Closest to Falling Off Stage Without Going Over

1/24/2018 2:11 PM PST

Drew Carey ... COME ON DOWN!!! To the ground.

"The Price is Right" host might be nursing sore ribs after falling victim to a massive fail during Wednesday's show. A woman named Sona won the prelim round, and went HAM on Drew.

Luckily for the host, a light fixture kept him from toppling completely off the stage after the wild bear hug -- or this vid would be a lot less funny. Carey popped up like a true pro.

Sona was okay, too, and went on to win a treadmill and $2,000. Drew won bumps and bruises.

'Price is Right' Contestants Make $80k History!!!

9/22/2017 10:40 AM PDT

"The Price is Right" busted an Oprah on 3 contestants -- YOU GET $10K! YOU GET $10K!! ... YOU GET $10K!!! -- all on the way to making history during Friday's insane episode.

In honor of Drew Carey's 10th anniversary of hosting 'TPiR,' any contestant who spun $1 on the wheel this week would get a $10k bonus instead of the usual $1k. What happened next was absolutely bananas.

Three contestants -- Wilbert, Charlotte and Zacharia -- all nailed the $10k, but that was just the start. The tiebreaker spins led to even more money and yet ANOTHER tie.

Charlotte eventually won the whole thing, but everyone got the dough they spun. In total, 'PiR' doled out $80k ... the most ever given away on the wheel. Happy anniversary, Drew ... you broke the bank.

We just know Plinko dude's somewhere losing his s**t.

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

9/7/2011 9:09 AM PDT
A 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.

Drew Carey BUSTS Collarbone "Price is Right" On Hold

8/16/2011 11:35 AM PDT


Drew Carey
was forced to cancel today's taping of "The Price is Right" -- after taking a NASTY fall during his morning run ... and separating his collarbone.

Carey tweeted ... "Had to cancel TPIR tapings today. I fell while running this AM and separated my clavicle. Be back tomorrow though!"

Drew even posted a picture of his x-ray -- adding, "Haven't even had a pain pill yet! (But I'm due. Still waiting on them)."


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

8/8/2010 12:50 PM PDT
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.
