Scary! Bob Barker Is Hospitalized After Serious Fall


Poor Bob! The legendary game show host Bob Barker, 93, was briefly hospitalized after suffering a serious fall and hitting his head at his California home, his rep has confirmed.

The former host of “The Price is Right” host, 93, required medical attention last week after he slipped in a bathroom at his Hollywood Hills residence. Paramedics were called, but Barker refused to go by ambulance to the hospital, though he later has his housekeeper drive him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to be checked out.

Luckily, though Barker experienced some discomfort, he was released several hours later after doctors determined he was doing well.

A rep for Barker told NY Daily News that the accident wasn’t as serious as the one he suffered two years ago, when he slipped on the sidewalk outside his Southern California home and hit his head—an injury that required stitches.

The veteran entertainer and animal rights activist has battled a series of health issues over the years, including strokes in 1991 and 2002, as well as several mild bouts with skin cancer. He retired from “The Price is Right” in 2007 after hosting the show for 35 years.

So scary! We’re keeping Bon in our thoughts and prayers, and hope he’s feeling much better!
