He spoke to Entertainment Weekly hours after his comments, saying that Drew Carey has been “charming and complimentary, and he had me on [The Price is Right] to plug my book…to think that I would say anything derogatory about him is idiocy.”

“He does the show differently than I did,” Bob Barker said of his Price Is Right replacement Drew Carey. Barker was cornered by paparazzi recently, taking the time to about his old hosting gig and his one-time on-screen cameo with Adam Sandler.

When asked about his appearance in the Adam Sandler flick Happy Gilmore, Bob Barker smiled. “Young men love that movie…and they’re always asking me…could I beat up Adam Sandler?” He laughed. “Adam Sandler couldn’t even beat up Regis Philbin!”
