Drew Carey is mourning the death of a former flame as he takes a break from "The Price is Right." All tapings have now been delayed as a result.


On Tuesday, People reported that "The Price is Right" postponed production due to the death of the host Drew Carey's ex-fiancée, Amie Harwick, 38, who was killed over the weekend.

The show's vice president of communications released a statement, as did Carey regarding the death and resulting delay. Their statements are found below.

The popular game show delayed


Kristina Kirk told People: "In light of the passing of Amie Harwick, we have postponed production this week." Carey proposed to Harwick in January 2018, but the pair split a few months later.

Harwick's death reportedly took place on Saturday around 1:15 p.m. She died when she fell off a balcony after an alleged attack from another ex-boyfriend who was later arrested.

Details of the incident


Harwick's roommate claimed to be a witness to an assault by the ex-boyfriend. The former sex-therapist died at the hospital. Officers later observed signs of forced entry at her home.

It's believed that Harwick previously filed a restraining order against the man, but it was expired at the time of her death. The suspect, Gareth Pursehouse, was arrested in Playa Del Rey and charged with murder.

Carey's heartwarming words


In a statement to People, Carey described Harwick as "a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist. I am overcome with grief."

He thanked fans for their support and didn't address the show delay. "The Price is Right" is owned and produced by Fremantle and copyrighted by The Price is Right Productions Inc.

Relationship history


Carey and Harwick reportedly began dating in June 2017. Drew, 61, would share photos of them via social media. Harwick, a former model, is also the author of a book titled "The New Sex Bible for Women."

When they called off the engagement in 2018, they gave no reason. However, Carey's representative released a statement saying the two were still on amicable terms.
