“[Drew] does the show differently than I did,” Bob Barker said. “I try to make the show really exciting. He doesn’t do that. He just plays the games.”
But Bob Barker was already backtracking a few hours later. When questioned by Entertainment Weekly on his statement, Barker backpedaled. Was it because he felt badly about talking smack?
Nope. He doesn’t want to lose out on any cash.
Oh good, as long as the apology is heartfelt. (Insert eye roll here.)
“He’s been charming and complimentary, and he had me on the show to plug my book,” Bob Barker said. “To think that I would say anything derogatory about him is idiocy.”
Except he did, and TMZ has it on tape.
