    The silver-haired daytime-TV icon is retiring in June, he told The Associated Press Tuesday.
    A CBS prime-time special celebrating the show's longevity and Barker's five decades on TV was already under way, a network spokesman said.
    He said he'd take on a movie role if the right one came along, but filmmakers, take note: "I refuse to do nude scenes. These Hollywood producers want to capitalize on my obvious sexuality, but I don't want to be just another beautiful body."

    Damn. Another shred of childhood gone.

    I wonder if "The Price Is Right" will continue to air and provide solace to kids home from school nationwide.

    Dian Parkinson and the other Barker's Beauties had no comment.

    But with Bob gone, who will lead the charge to control the pet population?

    Maybe Louie Anderson can take over?

    The real star of the show was forced out more than a decade ago. :-*

    Sounds like it's Reese Witherspoon, for the amount of kittens on death row tonite.
