There was a bit of a ruckus on Friday’s episode of ‘The Price is Right’.
Tripping over when wearing high heels – we’ve all done it. But most of us haven’t fallen over on live television or, in the process, smashed a lightbulb with our butts. Unfortunately for model Amber Lancaster, that’s exactly what happened during Friday’s (23rd October) live episode of The Price Is Right.

Drew Carey goes shopping at The Grove with two female companions
Drew Carey, the US comedian and TV presenter, after seeing the horrific reports about the autistic boy who was subjected to a fake ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, has pledged $10,000 to a reward fund with the hopes of catching those responsible.
Comedian Drew Carey has offered $10,000 to Bay Village police if they want to start a reward fund to aid in the apprehension of students who cruelly tricked an autistic boy into taking part in a fake ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Video footage, taken on the 15-year-old's phone and uploaded on to Instagram, shows the teenager being drench in liquid which reportedly contained urine and faeces.

Brandi Cochran, a former model on daytime television show The Price Is Right, has been awarded $7.7 million in damages by a Los Angeles court after successfully suing the show for not letting her return to work after giving birth. The whopping amount is in addition to $775,000 in compensatory damages awarded to the 41-year-old after the jury in the case ruled that producers had acted with malice.
"I hope my case will help other women in the same situation," Cochran told Reuters outside the courtroom. Producers for The Price Is Right said they planned to appeal over the verdict though, in truth, they've probably got little chance of overturning the decision. Cochran - the wife of soap opera actor Dean Cochran - had told the court how the show's producers began treating her poorly after she told them in December 2008 that she was expecting twins. The former Miss USA said that once she was pregnant, producers made disparaging remarks about her eating habits and removed her from the show's website. Price is Right host Drew Carey backed producers in testimony earlier this month.
Cochran worked as a model on the show from 2002 until 2009. Her son was stillborn in February 2009 and her daughter was born prematurely the following month. She asked to return to the show in February 2010 but was turned down. Cochran was encouraged to sue the producers by Hunter Tylo, the actress who successfully sued the producers of Melrose Place after being fired because of her pregnancy in the mid-1990s.

But things are changing in the animation scene. The freshness of CG has worn away, and audiences are no longer wowed by flashy technology alone. Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles has raised the bar on both animation excellence and story-telling savvy to a level that will be hard to top in coming years. If such early hits as Toy Story or Antz premiered today, it's unlikely they would wow the crowds nearly as much as they did on their initial releases. It's a tough time to be an animated film.

With its expensive but largely characterless voice castand an off-the-shelf follow-your-dreams plot retooled for a world populatedby wacky sentient machines, the computer-animated "Robots" islucky to have spectacular production design and one or two curious mechanicalstars to hold the interest of anyone over age 10.
Created by Blue Sky Studios and director Chris Wedge --the gang behind 2002's "IceAge" -- the story concerns young robotRodney Copperbottom (voiced by Ewan McGregor), a small-town dreamer madefrom well-worn, hand-me-down parts maintained by his dishwasher dad. He'sa hopeful, wide-eyed inventor who travels to the mega-opolis Robot Cityhoping to sell some of his scrap-metal gadgets to Bigweld Industries, apparentlythe monopoly supplier of all things robotic in this world.
The company was once run by the altruistic and welcomingMr. Bigweld (Mel Brooks), who for no adequately explored reason has withdrawnfrom the company he loved and let it be taken over by a greedy, brushed-steelcorporate suit named Ratchet (Greg Kinnear). This villain has decided todiscontinue all replacement parts Bigweld has always made for the robotpopulation -- all part of a sinister plan to scrap and melt down any "outmodes"who can't afford full-body upgrades.

An attempt to do for hair stylists what "This Is Spinal Tap" did for heavy metal, "The Big Tease" is a middling mockumentary about a naive and falsely confident Glasgow beauty shop owner who flies to Los Angeles for a world champion hair competition (!), only to discover he's not really invited.
Co-written by and starring Craig Ferguson (the British boss on "The Drew Carey Show"), this comedy of the uncomfortable traces the emotional rollercoaster ride of flamboyant hairdresser Crawford Mackenzie, whose ego takes a beating when a back-stabbing, plastic personality publicist (Mary McCormack) explains his RSVP is for reserved seats in the audience, not on stage.
It's a courtesy sent to all members of WHIF (the World Hairdressing International Federation), and Mackenzie soon discovers it doesn't entitle him to a complimentary room at the Four Seasons, either. So after being thrown out, he and a BBC crew -- which tagged along thinking this would be a big story back home -- find themselves camped out in a crappy San Fernando Valley motel while our hero hairdresser makes desperate, frantic and humiliating attempts to force his way into the tournament for the coveted "Platinum Scissors."
