Rapper Snoop Dogg will be appearing in an episode of TV game show The Price Is Right during its celebrity-week special.
Rapper Snoop Dogg, Comedienne/Actress Jenny McCarthy, Former American Idol Contestant/Rocker Chris Daughtry, and Supermodel Heidi Klum will each go up against other contestants to win money for their chosen charities. Snoop is playing for his Snoop Youth Football League, which could use the financial assistance to help children develop skills on and off the football field.
“It was a lot of fun to watch these celebs play our iconic games,” Executive Producer Mike Richards says. “Each one had their own unique strategy to win. Let’s just say Snoop knows more about the price of grocery items than you might think!”
The program’s first-ever celebrity special will begin airing January 2.
It isn’t all good news for Snoop, however.
The one thing that most folks know about Snoop Dogg, other than the fact that he’s a rapper, is that he loves to blaze up.
A concert promoter in Lebanon now knows it too. Apparently, Snoop fired up a joint at an after party in the Middle Eastern country.
The problem is promoter Roger Kalaouz, is suing Snoop because after an appearance in 2009, Dogg lit up (which is illegal in Lebanon) at his after party then featured the footage in the video “That’s the Homie.” Because of Snoop’s actions, a criminal investigation was launched against Kalaouz that ruined his reputation.
On top of all that, Kalaouz is claiming that Snoop promised he (Kalaouz) would be his Middle Eastern booking agent. However, after he started booking dates Snoop’s people told him they never had a deal.
Kalaouz is seeking $280k in damages.
