As we discussed earlier, Shannon Price may be the worst person ever.
First, Gary Coleman’s ex-wife said during the 911 call she made that she wouldn’t drive him to the hospital herself because she didn’t want to be traumatized.
We gave her the benefit of the doubt there … foolishly. Soon enough, she’s selling Gary Coleman death photos and hawking interviews to the highest bidder.
It’s no surprise that people close to Coleman are as appalled as we.
Victor Perillo, Gary’s former agent, is sick after hearing reports that his ex-wife Shannon Price took and sold photos of the former child star on his death bed.
Gary took Shannon to Divorce Court. It’s easy to see why.
The photos, showing Coleman in the hospital with tubes attached to him, “were never meant to get out,” insists Price’s family … even though she sold them.
Perillo said: “While Gary Coleman’s family continues to privately grieve the passing of their son, they would like to thank all of his fans for their generous support.”
“This kind gentle soul left the world with many beautiful memories to cherish.”
“That is why I am personally appalled to hear the news that some individuals are selling photos of Gary in the hospital. This is unconscionable and despicable. I would like to praise all the reputable news organizations that declined the offers.”
“I hope others will do the same out of respect and human decency.”
Coleman’s Diff’rent Strokes costar Todd Bridges even Twittered: “To find out pics of Gary Coleman in his last days got out, I hope someone burns in hell.”
Hard to argue with Todd there.
