Shannon Price has achieved her objective and has sold photos of her posing next to a helpless Gary Coleman in the hospital while he’s hooked up to life support. That photo is on the f’ing COVER of The Globe, something that I hope prompts a massive boycott of the cheapest, most vile rag on the market. I don’t think even the now defunct News of the World would stoop to this level.
I am not telling you where I saw this image or linking to it, it’s frankly that disturbing. The thing is, this photo will be out on supermarket stands for the next week. It should come with a severe warning but it’s going to be out there for everyone, including little kids, to see. It frankly makes me want to cry and throw up at the same time. I still feel sick to my stomach.
This woman is despicable and the lowest form of trash. I hope that the judge ultimately presiding over Gary’s estate will hear all about this and ensure that she doesn’t get access to a dime of his money. That poor man – not to mention his friends and family! That’s got to break their hearts that Price put this picture out there.
Radar Online has some interviews with Gary’s ex costar, Todd Bridges. In one, Bridges discusses the deathbed photos and says “That’s insane. I could never imagine doing that… I would never be that mad at somebody to ever do something so dreadful and horrible to them.” Shannon’s rep has admitted that her client posed for the photos, but claims she never “intended” for them to be released. She didn’t intend for them to get out until the money was right. I heard that she’s asking more for the one where Gary is actually dead.
Update: Popeater reports that Price was paid just $10,000 for these pictures by The Globe. She sold out her husband’s last minutes for $10k.
