"There are all kinds of rumors all over the Internet, because rumors are all people have to report with," he observes. "I love how these things get going. A friend of mine and I were talking about how Rosie O'Donnell was made into a possible host for 'The Price Is Right.' You know, someone asks Bob Barker backstage at the Daytime Emmys, 'What would you think of Rosie O'Donnell taking your place?' And just to be polite, he goes, 'Yeah, sure. Why not?' So then she's taking general meetings all around town, thinking about what's coming up for her after 'The View,' and someone says, 'What about 'The Price Is Right'? It's all over the Internet that Bob Barker wants you to take his place.' And she says, 'Yeah, sure. Why not? I'm meeting with CBS Thursday.' And it all started from this stupid question someone asked Bob Barker."
OK, Drew, but how about your hosting "The Price is Right"? "Yeah, sure. Why not?" he replies, laughing. "It would be fun to do, I think. If something happens, yeah."
