Define "alive". Is she upright and able to move under her own power? Yes.

And for the record, exactly nine months older than Mr. Barker.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.

They're bringing Regis in for this, too?

That would surprise me a great deal, considering litigation about precisely that behavior is still in progress, is it not?

This latest lawsuit against Barker is based on his alleged policy of Racial Discrimination restricting the number of African American contestants per show, and the suit is against Barker for the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress on the woman who reported it.  No divas involved in this one.

But didn't the judge decide that Barker wouldn't be a defendant in this suit?

Certainly not.  For the uninitiated, "The Divas" is the collective name given to the WWE's various female wrestlers.  (Just making sure nobody thinks anyone was insulting the female litigants.)

No, what the judge ruled was that Barker and Fremantle were not Curling's employer, CBS was.  So Barker was removed as an "employer", but is still the defendant in the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (along with his boy Roger, 'cause hey, somebody had to do that retalliation dirty work.)

Typical of Barker and his Public Image Damage Control Squad/Deliberate Mis-information PR team, press releases flew out that made it appear as if Barker had been dismissed, when in fact Bobbo is still knee-deep in the lawsuit hoopla!

Well, the least we can do is come up with a decent drinking game for next Monday! Any ideas?

1) Acquire fifth of Jack Daniels
2) Drink entire fifth of Jack Daniels
3) Watch show, secure in the knowledge that you are now too drunk to claw your eyes out with a fork

Accompanied by a few moments of clips, it was indeed confirmed by WWE on RAW moments ago that he'll be the guest host next Monday.

/And yes, they did play the Price is Right theme with the announcement, and I assume he'll enter to it next week.

Why would I want to claw my eyes out? I WANT to see octo-man's head go through that cafeteria table.

And people say Professor Price was a bad idea.

Unless you've been watching the show regularly for the last couple of months like I have, you're just gonna have to trust me on this one.

WWE Hall of Famer Broadcaster Jim Ross posted an updated blog on his website: ""The Price is Right" TV legend  Bob Barker is an alleged lady's man so when "Mr. Come on Down" guest hosts Raw in Chicago it might be a good idea for the smart, sexy, powerful Divas of Raw to beware or it could be a "vintage"  May to December romance opportunity. The late, Ray Combs of "Family Feud" fame told me many "tales" of Barker's legendary eye for the ladies. Not that there is anything wrong with that, for the record.
