The Price is Right needs a new host and Rosie O'Donnell is interested. She's meeting with game show representatives this week and has given readers of her blog an insight into her stormy decision process, saying in one post she's be interested and in another that she might not be the right fit.

CBS is looking to replace the iconic Bob Barker, who stepped down after 35 years last week. Barker says O'Donnell "knows the show," but doesn't know if producers would consider a female host. Rosie's in the job market since leaving her gig on The View earlier than expected after tussling with co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck over the war in Iraq. (More Rosie O'Donnell stories.)
