What a mystery!
Entertainment Tonight interviewed Gary Coleman's Diff'rent Strokes co-star Todd Bridges and he revealed that Gary not only recently had open-heart surgery, but he also had a some secret last wishes!
Here are some HIGHlights from Todd's interview, airing tonight!
On the good times they had together:
"We had an exceptional time as kids. We always had fun in our dressing rooms, we'd always roller skate together around [the studio lot], we always hung out… we went to school together. He was a precocious, fun little kid that was very bright for his age."
On Gary's behavior as an adult:
"Imagine having major health problems. Imagine getting ripped off of all your money. Imagine being raised in a household where he wasn't taught how to love himself or to love others around him. So when he hit the world at an adult age, he wasn't prepared."
On Gary's open-heart surgery:
"Physically, he wasn't in great shape. He had a valve replaced, and people didn't know that."
On Gary's last wishes:
"[A friend of mine and I] have paperwork, and we'll bring it out soon, that will show what his wishes were and what he wanted. There's a big fight going on with his parents and some other people involved, and after we bring this paperwork out, everybody's going to shut up.
"Gary had certain wishes [excluding his parents]. I'm not going to go against a dying man's wishes. … There's a reason why he didn't speak to them for 23 years."
We wonder what the big news is!
