Interview: The Price Is Right’s Kathleen Bradley
The former Barker’s Beauty stops by Cleveland’s New 103 to talk about her revealing new book.
Kathleen Bradley was as familiar to viewers of The Price Is Right in the 1990s as any of the show’s iconic pricing games. From 1990 to 2000, Bradley—the first African-American model on the CBS game show—spent many a morning as part of Bob Barker’s buxom prize-wielding regime. Her time at Studio 33, however, wasn’t all goodies and giveaways.
Several sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits for which Bradley gave a deposition, as well as rumors of backstage cat fights and betrayals, left millions wondering what was really going on behind those big doors. Now, Kathleen Bradley is answering many of those questions in her new book, Backstage at The Price is Right: Memoirs of a Barker Beauty.
An Ohio native, Kathleen spoke with Dave Ramos of Cleveland’s New 102 about her experiences stepping onto the stage in 1990 as Price’s first black model, what Bob Barker was really like off-camera, and the validity of some of those casting-couch rumors.
