NEW YORK, NY (June 25, 2007) The most talked about decision in daytime TV has finally been made — at least according to Rosie. O’Donnell will not replace game show host legend Bob Barker on The Price Is Right for one very specific reason.
If they were able to do it in New York it would be a different story but it looks like it ain’t gonna happen, ODonnell said in her video blog on Rosie.com.
I dont really need a job, she added. Im in a weird position. I dont really need the money.
Rosie reportedly met with Price Is Right producers last week and passed on their substantial offer to take over for Bob Barker. The deal breaker wasnt the money it was location. Rosie lives in New York with wife Kelli and their four kids.
To get my entire family uprooted from their lives and move them cross country so I can have a fantasy childhood indulgence job, it just doesnt seem fair, she said. They all are in school, they have friends. We love their school, we love our community, we love our house, our life, our home.
ODonnell, whos currently on the Texas leg of Cyndi Laupers True Colors tour also used her blog to share her true feelings about a possible tour surprise a potential appearance by Britney Spears.
The rumors are swirling that Britney is joining us in LA. Now Cyndi said it wasnt happening. Its Cyndis tour so she would know, but if it is happening, Im thrilled because I enjoy Britney, Rosie said.
Back when she co-hosted “The View, Rosie suggested a formerly troubled Spears move in with her.
Britney, if youre watching honey, you and me, well share like a backstage moment. I love you kid, she added on her blog.
