Barker Not Invited To Price Is Right Celebration

Bob Barker may have hosted The Price Is Right for 35 years and may have written an autobiography in 2009 titled Priceless Memories , but his follow-up could be titled How Soon They Forget. CBS aired a 40th anniversary special of the game show on Tuesday but didn't include the 88-year-old Barker in it. Asked by the Associated Press why he didn't appear on the special, Barker replied that the network "chose to ignore me, which is fine." He was seen in several clips from past episodes, but Barker remarked, "They haven't even offered me a DVD" of the show. Barker speculated that CBS chose to snub him in retaliation for his criticism of the network for"giving away prizes that I consider inappropriate." He said that he had complained to the network about awarding contestants tickets to Sea World and the Calgary Stampede. A lifelong animal rights activist, Barker said that those those groups "are notorious for animal abuse." Both groups claim that their animals receive exceptional care. CBS and Price Is Right producers declined to comment on Barker's remarks, AP reported.
