Drew Carey Standing by Mike Richards ... After 'Jeopardy!' Ouster


Mike Richards has one incredibly influential celeb in his corner despite leaving "Jeopardy!" amid a shroud of controversy ... and it's his old pal Drew Carey.

We got Mike and Drew Thursday in L.A. after they wrapped up a power breakfast of sorts -- we're told they broke bread for 2 hours at Swingers on Beverly Blvd.

The old pals obviously have lots to catch up about after Mike got the boot -- first as "Jeopardy!" host, and then as its executive producer -- and they presented a very united front as they walked to their cars.

First, we asked Mike himself if he felt like he'd gotten a raw deal. Remember, he was fired over 8-year-old comments -- things he'd said to his female co-host on their podcast. Watch ...  he took the high road, and refused to say anything disparaging about his former employers at Sony.

The Randumb Show

As for Drew ... we also asked him about Mike's ouster, and he pled the Fifth. However, he'd already said plenty just by being out in public with Richards.

The duo has history together ... Mike used to be Drew's EP on "The Price is Right," and it's very clear from this video, he's standing by his friend during this rough patch.

'Price Is Right's' George Gray Suffers 3 Massive Heart Attacks

George Gray, the longtime announcer for "The Price Is Right" is in the hospital after suffering not one, not 2 but 3 massive heart attacks ... TMZ has learned.

We're told George woke up Monday morning at 7 AM with chest pains. At first, he thought it was indigestion, but his condition quickly deteriorated and his wife called 911 and he was rushed to the hospital by ambulance.

We're told he suffered the first massive heart attack in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Doctors took George into surgery, where they put a stent in one of his arteries, but it failed. Doctors then put a second stent in, and it also failed.

George suffered a second major heart attack while taking a walk in the hospital. Doctors then took him back into surgery where they were going to place a third stent in his artery, but while he was on the operating table he suffered a third, massive heart attack.

Surgeons then performed a quadruple bypass. He was taken back to ICU where he was listed in critical condition.

Things are looking up. George's rep tells TMZ he's currently in stable condition and is talking.

As for what George is saying ... it's a cautionary tale. The 53-year-old says he's in the best shape of his life, and his cholesterol is super low. George says it's all genetic.

And, get this ... George says if it weren't for coronavirus he'd be dead ... that's because he and his wife were supposed to celebrate their anniversary this month by taking a trip to the beaches of Thailand. He says if he had the heart attack there he'd almost certainly be a goner.

Bob Barker Quarantine Is Easy ... I'm Used to Isolation!!!

Bob Barker's life is not in upheaval under the coronavirus quarantine -- like most of us -- because he's already skilled in the art of self-isolation.

Sources connected to Bob tell us the former 'Price is Right' host is doing okay at home as he quarantines in Los Angeles. Fact is, Bob was already steering clear of others for his own health, so the new normal for most folks is just another day for Barker.

Our sources say Bob's isolation is way more strict due to the outbreak though. His family was already barring people with colds from getting close to him -- his immune system is not what it once was -- and now, no one is allowed over to the house aside from those in quarantine with him.

We're told 96-year-old Bob's family is making sure he eats and tends to all his medical needs, but so far it's pretty much business as usual.

There is one major change ... our sources say Bob would normally watch sports at home, but now he's watching a lot of old movies, especially anything related to the military. Remember, Bob was in the Navy and is really into war flicks.

You'll recall ... Bob slipped and fell at his home last year, and was transported to the hospital twice in 2018 with back issues.

But, so far, Bob's doing just fine in quarantine.

'The Price Is Right' Halts Production After Drew Carey's Ex-Fiancee's Murder


1:29 PM PT -- Drew just issued this statement, obtained by TMZ, "Amie and I had a love that people are lucky to have once in a lifetime. She was a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist. I am overcome with grief. I would like to thank you in advance for giving myself and everyone who loved Amie privacy while we try to work through this tragic situation."

"The Price Is Right" is going on a brief hiatus ... we've learned the game show is not taping this week as part of the fallout from the shocking murder of Drew Carey's former fiancee.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... "The Price is Right" won't be shooting any new shows for the entire week. They had episodes scheduled to shoot on Tuesday and Wednesday. Audience members got an email about the cancelation Monday morning.

TMZ broke the story ... cops say Drew's ex-fiancee, Dr. Amie Harwick, was murdered over the weekend after an ex-boyfriend allegedly attacked her and caused her to fall off a third-story balcony in the Hollywood Hills.

Police arrested the ex, Gareth Pursehouse, Saturday and booked him for murder.

Drew and Amie started dating back in 2017 and announced their engagement in early 2018, but less than a year later they split.

As you know ... Drew's hosted "The Price Is Right" since 2007, succeeding longtime host Bob Barker.

Bob Barker Home Smashed by Out-of-Control Car


No ... this is not the right way to "come on down" to Bob Barker's house.

Law enforcement sources tell us the car was involved in a collision on the street, and the impact sent it flying into Barker's wall.

We're told everyone involved in the crash is okay -- there were no injuries to people, but clearly to vehicles ... and walls.

Bob Barker Ambulance Called to Home After Nasty Slip & Fall

Bob Barker has had another health scare at his L.A. home that required another ambulance and paramedics to treat the legendary game show host.

Sources connected to Bob tell us the former 'Price is Right' host slipped and fell at his Hollywood Hills home earlier this month. Someone called 911 and paramedics rushed over, but they didn't take him to the ER.

Our sources tell us Bob was given the all-clear, and that he's currently receiving in-home care for injuries from a prior fall. We're told he's regaining his strength from his 2017 fall, during which he also slipped and seriously hurt himself.

He was transported twice in 2 months toward the tail end of 2018 -- once in October and again in November ... both of which had to do with his back flaring up.

And remember ... Bob suffered a nasty fall in 2015 as well, where he tripped over a sidewalk and split his head open.

During his recovery, we're told Bob isn't taking any new jobs -- including multiple offers for interviews -- and is instead enjoying retirement and focusing on his animal foundation.

Get well and PLEASE take care, Bob. For all our sake.

Bob Barker Out of Hospital Home for the Holidays

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

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

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 ...

'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


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!!!


"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

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

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.
