Barker: Price Is High

Another familiar figure is involved in a legal battle. "The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker's libel suit against Holly Hallstrom, a former model on his show, was postponed on Monday as she searches for a new attorney. She was said to have had a difference of opinion with her previous legal representative. Barker, 76, sued Hallstrom after she left the show in 1995 and made claims to the media that she was fired because she had gained too much weight. She, in turn, is also suing Barker, claiming she was unjustly terminated after 19 years on TV's longest-running game show (it's been running since 1972). Both suits are now scheduled for Aug. 2.
