Gary Coleman's Ex-Wife Can't Afford His Funeral!

| Filed under: Sad Sad


Gary Coleman's story gets sadder and his ex-wife Shannon Price gets shadier!

After telling sources how much she enjoys spending money going on lavish trips to Vegas because she loves "getting pampered and shopping," adding, "obviously I would buy the high-end stuff," Shannon is now saying she can't even afford to pay for Gary's funeral.

She goes on to say that their "life together has not always been the best financially" because of Gary's lack of work in recent years. She revealed that when she met him, he had a lot of projects in the works and they had plenty of money in the bank, but due to his kidney disease, he was unable to get health insurance. And now she has "nothing."

She says, "I'm just wishing and hoping that people will pour out to us and really show their compassion like they have been sending the letters and emails."

If you're going to beg for money, you shouldn't be telling the media about how much money you spend!! Is it just us or does something not seem right??

    I hate people like this. They are all over the place. The type that are sporting expensive shit and driving around in their caddys and trying to front with their designer shit then paying for their groceries with food stamps. You know who you are. Quit pretending to have money when you don't. It's pathetic

    "…pour out to us…"?

    How incredibly crass. She probably wants a manicure.

    Hey kids! Be sure to stay tuned to watch her desperate attempts to

    1.) cash in on poor Gary again


    2.) parlay her 15 seconds into her desperately-hoped-for 15 minutes.

    Disgusitng, money-grubbing cow.

    Perez - here's your opportunity to "step-up" - unlike your "stay strong" to the senior high school lesbian student in Mississippi.

  6. 6

    if they're divorced why is she paying for his funeral?

  7. 7

    Something has smelt fishy since the beginning. If my husband were lying on the floor bleeding profusely, I would be at his side, doing whatever it took to help him. I wouldn't be UPSTAIRS, on the phone, telling the 911 operator that I MIGHT have a seizure. There's something "souless" about this person. Perhaps that is what attracted him to her in the first place: she is just like his parents, only seeing him as a money machine, period.

    what does health insurance have to do with this - he's dead. life insurance is what's buries one, not health insurance and I'd be surprised if someone like him didn't have a life insurance policy.
    either she's an idiot for saying that, mario's an idiot for posting it or a mixture of both.

  9. 9

    If he was cremated she would try and put his ashes on E Bay for money.

  10. 10

    I really hope his parents will have the final say over where he is buried… As for his EX-wife…maybe she should SELL some of her "stuff" to pay for it, since SHE is the one who pulled the life support from him… And, I understand compassion fans have for celebrities, but I HOPE if ANY send money, it's directly to a Funeral Home, and doesn't wind up in HER hands… If so, I'm not so sure it'd go towards his funeral. How sad for him, and his family… R.I.P.

  11. 11

    There's something wrong with this whole thing. She shed crocodile tears for him.

  12. 12

    Im sure she "helped him" down the stairs, as well.

  13. 13

    OK I understand he had a hard time working bx of his kidney condition…but she appears to be fine. What has she been doing for employment????

  14. 14

    Re: April 20th – I think Ms Price mentioned health insurance issues as a way to explain her/their bad financial straits due to having to pay out of pocket for medical bills for Gary's ailments as he was not eligible for health insurance.

  15. 15

    Pathetic cow. Totally sorry for her loss, but get off your arse and get a job like the rest of us

  16. 16

    why doesn't she get a FUCKING JOB!!!!!!!!?????

  17. 17

    Re: Meow Baby – that still doesn't have anything to do with burying him……..

  18. 18

    She killed him and then wants us to pay for funeral cost??? Listen woman — Here's an idea… That car that Gary gave you; you know that one you said that you can't drive because of your seizures.. Sell it!!!

  19. 19

    i just hope she's not thinking of gary's FANS pouring out their money to her!
    i really don't think we're that stupid

    Re: whoami2745 – true..but they weren't married. but i get what you're saying

  20. 20

    Re: April 20th – Ms Price publicly bragged (the day after Mr Coleman's passing, no less) about having burned through alot of Mr Coleman's money, and now she seems to be claiming that having no health insurance and high medical bills has left her unable to pay for a funeral.

    I agree with you re: the life insurance policy comment - he likely did have one (at least I hope he did) and yes, it should cover burial expenses.

    I think Ms Price is spinning her tale of woe to grub up even more cash.

  21. 21

    Why would his Ex wife bury him! His family should take care of that.

  22. 22

    Whatever! Bitch just wants the $$ to pour in so she can spend it on herself. Is she taking donations to get her "teefs" fixed too?

  23. 23

    Re: Meow Baby – i think we agree - this bitch is a money grubbing whore!

  24. 24

    This Gary Colman business is pretty depressing. He really didn't have anyone in his life he could trust. Now in his death, they are still treating him like shit.

  25. 25

    Re: -Shootingstar- – Let me begin by saying, I love your avatar, -Shootingstar-! Very nice one. :-)

    I heard that his parents have requested custody of the body and would like to take care of the arrangements.

    While I don't care much for them because of the way they misappropriated their son's earnings when he was a minor, I'd prefer they took care of things rather than letting Little Ms Dollar$igns do it.

  26. 26

    something is wrong with this woman. she is 24, married him, divorce him and never told the press. she would not go to his body when he fell, as requested by 911…. something is 'wrong' with her…. as in mentally… look at her…something is 'off'

  27. 27

    i hope no one gives her anything… she is a piece of shit and now the whole world knows it.

  28. 28

    I hear ya cinnamon_rae, she sounds like a total douche bag, and the 911 call about how she could even help him cause she would have a seizure, what a load of crap. I hope she gets nothing!

  29. 29

    Re: -Shootingstar- – she's doing it for attention or has a scheme behind it because his family wants his body and wants to give him a funeral but this crazy bitch doesnt want that to happen.. my guess is she's doing it for money by asking people to "donate" it for the funeral and she'll put it in her pocket and run to go shopping

  30. 30

    Funerals are a waste of money. Dead things are just dead things, one to the next, slugs to falcons to humans to baby chicks. Dead is dead. "Blog" your grief if you must but…..don't waste resources on embalming or digging or coffins.

  31. 31

    I met him once or twice and he was always a super nice guy. Really I don't know why some guys always hook themselves up with these money grabber types of women. The smart guys like me, the alpha males, they marry women who are already rich and famous! And I've never had any fights in my marriage, nothing but peace, love and of course plenty of goulash.

  32. MP says – reply to this


    I hope no one gives this woman a dime. How about you get a job or sell your high end stuff on ebay to pay for YOUR HUSBAND'S funeral?? Men out there, watch out for women like this. Better to be single and alone than to be with a woman like this.

  33. 33

    Based on what his parents did to him with his money. They should step up and take care of their son. THEY OWE HIM THAT! No way should this woman make the final plans especially if money is involved and if is make sure it goes directly for his burial! And nothing else. RIP Gary!

  34. 34

    Re: Narcoleptic_Sleep_Around – he hasn't spoken to his parents in over 20 years…they took ALL of his Different Strokes money which is why he was emancipated from them and why he's always had to be looking for a job. He still gets small residual checks, but the big chunks he got during filming were all spent by his parents…something tells me he would never want his "parents", or as I would call them, egg and sperm donors, near him, even after death.

  35. 35

    Re: ThrishTheBitch – His parents weren't his actual sperm and egg donor as you called them. They adopted him when he was a baby. So if he was emancipated from them, do they really have any right to him? If they aren't his actual parents?

  36. 36

    Re: April 20th – boy, you sure do need everything spelled out for you, dont you? like the other poster said, her mentioning the fact that gary didnt have health insurance was explaining why they were/are in a bad financial situation, since they had to pay for all of his health care out of pocket, which explains why shes asking for public help to pay for the funeral, since, wait for it, they were in a bad financial situation! geesh. someone missed the short bus this morning.

  37. 37

    It costs a minimum of $13k to bury someone.

  38. 38

    Couldn't we hook her up with another disgruntled former child star for a reality show? How about that Chacci guy? Scott Baio? He's all pissed off, all the time. Get this dim wit on his trail and start shooting.

  39. 39

    I don't like my ex-husband, but if he were bleeding to death, I would have to help him. I hope there is an investigation done….it sounds so suspicious. She hs also sold photos of him near death? What human being does that? She was arrested last April for domestic violence. Am I the only one who is thinking criminal charges should be investigated? His parents wanted to give him a funeral. Why doesn't she just release his body to them?
