A Lawsuit for “The Price is Right”
If 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.
