    All right, I want to write a nasty letter to the "Price is Right" show. RV owners deserve respect! (Um, No offense to anyone on here whose name might happen to be Thelma Lou....) :)

    One of the "showcase" prizes was a very nice TT with a gym in it. Well, the "lovely lady" that was modeling the showcase, well, instead of the usual "lovely lady," they used a "lovely lady" but made her dress in the outrageous stereotype.

    All kinds of people have RV's! That stereotype, well, we don't need it! :eek:

    Ok, should I write a nasty letter? Or should I just laugh and ignore it? :unsure:

    "should I write a nasty letter?"



    Hard to say since I didn't see the show. Remember the movie RV with Robin Williams had some stereotyping in it. And it was funny. How bad was the costume and how mad are you????

    Ok, the movie "RV" had stereotyping, but Robin Williams' family kind of negated the stereotype, to me, so the movie was kind of "balanced."

    I'm a bit hesitant to describe in detail, but, well...... let's just say..... they had the "lovely lady" looking kind of like, and dressing like, the wife that was in the bus RV in the movie, except on today's "Price is Right" the lady had dark red hair.

    Maybe I'll just write a politely worded letter indicating that the "stereotype" was not appreciated and if you just come out and meet some RV owners, you would see that there are all types of people that drive RV's.

    I seen the show, and was not offended at all. Pease don't start a poll on who was offended. I find polls offensive.
    Come to think of it why would you have to ask the forum if you should write a letter to the show?

    Don't worry, I'm not starting a poll. ANd, I just wanted opinions, and if people thought I was over-reacting, then I wouldn't write the letter.

    JJ,

    I like what you said in your last paragraph about the polite letter. Go for it.

    Look on the bright side, the Price Is Right could have gotten these two to portray the "RV people"...

    Compared to them, I think Thelma Lou sounds lovely! LOL.

    If you're going to write a letter to Price is Right, tell them to ditch Drew Carey...the guy is absolutely horrible! :eek:

    With red hair, maybe they were trying to stereo type the old Lucy Arnez from when she had her trailer and was a travelin. Oh good grief that might have been before your time. And I might be givin my age away. LOL Wish I had a copy of that old film.

    I remember the "Lucy Show" with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.... But I don't remember anything about a trailer.....

    Well, he's definitely not Bob Barker.... I have always liked the "Drew Carey Show," but I was surprised he was picked to replace Bob Barker.... Drew likes to get "raunchy" and you can't do that on a game show....

    This will show my age, too, but I remember Lucy and the trailer. I think it was a movie with her and Desi--not part of the TV show. They played newly-weds, and for some reason they bought this huge trailer. At least it was huge for that time. They drove it somewhere and of course there were plenty of mishaps along the way. Come to think of it, it was sort of an early version of the RV movie. Maybe the Price Is Right was spoofing Lucy after all.

    I seen the movie also. It was actually a moble home, and they towed it with a 1953 Mercury convertable. I beleive the name of it was the Long Long Trailer. Released in 1953. Think I've seen it in the vidio stores.

    I don't think anyone will every replace Bob Barker, but they sure could have done better than Drew Carey...he wouldn't be half bad if he'd stop constantly mumbling and cutting off people when they're trying to speak, LOL!!! I think they should have gotten John O'Hurley...he'd be perfect. :)

    JJ, did Thelma Lou look like this: :D

    Great picture! Ok, now I think I know what movie you are talking about, and I have seen it. No, "Thelma Lou" had long dark red auburn hair, and it was "big hair," and dressed like the blonde in the RV bus in the "RV" movie.
