Gary Coleman's ex wants to be his wife again (even though he's dead)



Shannon Price and Gary ColemanGary Coleman's ex-wife is asking a judge to designate her as the child star's surviving spouse. Ugh. I officially apologize for ever making light of Gary Coleman. The late actor deserves sainthood for ever letting this crazy woman into his life.

According to the Associated Press, documents were filed last week on behalf of Shannon Price that say she and the Diff'rent Strokes star continued to live together and represent themselves as married despite a divorce in 2008.

Trust me, it's not about the love, it's about the money. Wanna know why?

Price is seeking the declaration as part of the ongoing battle over Gary's estate. Right now, her only claim to his fortune is a handwritten note he allegedly scribbled out a few days before his death. (Keep in mind that some people out there are still a little peeved that Price had photos taken and sold of her smiling at the bedside of her soon-to-be-dead roommate while he was hospitalized. Others have theorized that she may have even played a role in his "accidental fall" that led to his death.)

No matter what a judge decides to do, there's no getting the stink off this story ... or Price herself.
