Gary Coleman is getting divorced already
It's curtains for Gary Coleman's new marriage already. The 40-year-old actor and his 22-year-old wife, Shannon Price, are on the docket over at Divorce Court, with a scheduled appearance on May 1 and 2 (3 p.m. on Fox around here, folks). That's right, a two-parter!
The pair are set to argue that the marriage has failed, since they get into "ugly" fights on a monthly basis. Mind you, they only got married in August, but whatever.
"If he doesn't get his way, he throws a temper tantrum like a five-year-old does," Price says, according to a transcript of the show provided to the AP. "He like stomps the floor and yells, 'Meehhhh,' and starts throwing stuff around. He bashes his head in the wall, too."
Coleman defends himself by saying he's just being a guy.
"When I try to state my case or explain things to her or try to get her to understand my point of view, my point of view doesn't matter," he says. Hey buddy, that sounds like a marriage to us, all right.
But awfully strange is Price's recounting of how Coleman has no friends and gets up in the middle of the night and disappears. It may account for what he describes as a "mediocre" private life. His explanation:
"I don't have any friends and don't have any intention of making any," he says. "People will stab you in the back, mistreat you, talk about me behind your back, steal from you. And they're not really your friends. (They're) only there because you're a celebrity or because they want to get something from you."
Like a few months of notoriety for marrying a basket case former child star, perhaps?
