Now, this is a bit odd. When I heard that Gary Coleman had fallen and suffered a head injury, I figured he was doing something active, like bunjee jumping from a barstool or something. No, he was making his live-in ex-wife a sammich when he fell, and bitch doesn’t even want to help him. Says nj.com,
Gary Coleman’s blood was everywhere, according to the frantic 911 call placed after the former star’s fall last Wednesday by Shannon Price (who, it turns out, was divorced from the former “Diff’rent Strokes” star). She told operators to hurry because “I can’t deal.”
“I had my husband go make me some food downstairs, he just got home and I heard this big bang,” Price says in the call. “His head is bloody. There’s blood all over the floor. Send someone quick because I don’t know if he’s going to, like, be alive.”
Coleman had returned from a grueling dialysis treatment for his congenital kidney disease and was considerably weakened. Though he was at least semi-conscious during the 911 call, he later lapsed into a coma and was taken off life support on Friday morning.
Meanwhile, People.com reports that Price represented herself as Coleman’s wife to emergency responders and hospital personnel, but she was actually divorced from Coleman since 2008. But whether they were married or not, Coleman had completed an advance health care directive that gave Price permission to make medical decisions on his behalf, according to the hospital in which he died, so it appears she’s in the clear to have taken him off life support.
Price’s lawyer, Shelia Erickson, tells People that she’s not sure whether Price and Coleman ever remarried, but, “They needed each other and loved each other. They wanted to work through their problems.”
Check out the 911 call. The really sick part is how Shannon Price acted during the emergency. The poor guy is lying on the floor, bleeding, “bubbling at the mouth”, and she “can’t deal” because she doesn’t want to get stressed out have a seizure. It’s kind of like, sorry dude, your head is bleeding but you’re going to have to figure it out. What a bitch. I hope his short little ghost comes back to haunt her.
