GARY … GARY … GARY! What’s, as Bernie Mac would say, “goinz on?” After not being able to get a fruitful acting gig as of late, this must be the only other route. Get married and take your acting “chops” to Divorce Court.
Gary Coleman, 40, and his 22-year-old wife, Shannon Price, are supposedly taping their makeshift “reality show” on TV’s “Divorce Court” May 1 and 2.
Judge Lynn Toler will hear how angry Coleman gets and all about their “ugly monthly fights.” Not to mention Coleman’s reasoning for not having friends and his alleged disappearances in the middle of the night, according to Price.
“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 from The Associated Press. “He like stomps the floor and yells, ‘Meehhhh,’ and starts throwing stuff around. He bashes his head in the wall, too.”
Coleman says he goes off because he’s not being heard and that “the male is always the bad guy.”
“When I try to state my case or explain things to her or try to get her to understand my point of view,” Coleman says, “my point of view doesn’t matter.”
Coleman also admits to trust issues. Back in February 2008, Gary told People magazine that this relationship was his ”first-time-ever romantic relationship.”
“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.”
