While commenting on his health, Burnet said, “he’s going to be 99, and he takes one prescription medication and that’s for his thyroid.” 

“And his health care or anyone who comes in to see him, they’ll say, ‘Well, we’d like a list of his medications.’ I’ll say, you know, let me just show you the bottle.”

As Burnet continues she confirms that Barker, despite being 99, is “in very good health for his age and his humor is still in good shape. He’s had a very charmed life.”

And as for how the legendary host is celebrating the start of another year around the sun, Burnet says she and Barker will have a “very simple and quiet” celebration at their home with cake.

Burnet went on to credit Barker’s health to his decision to go vegan per her request roughly 20 years ago. “It was not to replace meals but to enhance everything,” she explained. “To take that in addition to his meals, because he was not doing well.”

Barker retired following a 50-year-long hosting career, 35 of which was spent hosting The Price Is Right, in 2007. He’s won 14 Daytime Emmy Awards and 4 Emmy awards as an executive producer of the show.

Burnet says Barker is still very fond of his hosting years. In fact, she believes that is why he was so successful at it. 

“He never grew bored with it. So maybe that’s why it was so successful because he was always ready to do it and happy to do it.”

Happy Birthday, Bob Barker! May you enjoy many more!
