A Lawsuit for “The Price is Right”

carwrecked.jpgIf you happen to need a good laugh (and who doesn’t?), take a look at this AP story (via Yahoo! News) about The Price Is Right. Apparently a former contestant by the name of Donna Tillman has filed suit against the show. Here’s why:

Way back in June 2004, Tillman was a contestant on The Price Is Right, and ended up being the lucky winner of a brand-new 2004 Pontiac GTO Coupe. TPIR claimed the GTO was worth a whopping $33,495. Pretty sweet, huh? Well, maybe. Or maybe not. Tillman claims that the car she was delivered was a used vehicle. When she took the car in for servicing a year later, she was told the car had once been in an accident, but had been repaired in an effort to hide the damage. Ouch!

Obviously, someone’s lying. Did Tillman get in a wreck, and then ask a family member, for instance, to fix the car on the down-low? Or did CBS Broadcasting (who Tillman also named in the suit) pull the ol’ scam-a-roo? I couldn’t tell you myself. But this’ll certainly be a fun one to watch. I’ll see about posting updates here.

    FOR SOMEONE THAT THINKS ANYBODY IS A SCAM ARTIST, WHY WOULD YOU PUT ‘BEAVER CLEAVER’ AS A NAME RATHER THAT YOUR OWN NAME? HE DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT, AND THAT IS NOT HIS OR JERRY MATHERS COMMENT

    I don’t think Donna is lying. She won a showcase and got the car from a dealership in WA. The dealership probally wrecked the car and fixed it. . . All she was trying to do was RIGHTFULLY get what is RIGHTFULLY hers. She was to win a BRAND NEW, not USED car///

    Thanks for the comment, Donna Tillman’s daughter! If you’ve got a minute, would you mind telling your mom’s side of the story for the readers of the Labor Party?

    Actually she is far from a scam artist as I know being her daughter. Why don’t you try being a contestant on the “Price Is Right” to find out who is really at fault!

    You can think what you want but we, the family, know who is to blame.

    I think that Donna Tillman sounds like a scam artist. She probably crashed her damn car and will not take accountability for her poor driving. Another fool trying to get paid. What is her race?
