I don’t know if you all remember when Gary Coleman married his ex-wife Shannon Price, but it was quite the sight. All of a sudden the little dude we knew from TV was marrying some red-headed Mormon with busted teeth. Also, and I’m trying to say this as delicately as possible, she came off retarded. I mean, mentally retarded. As in the actual mental condition. I’m not being snarky, but the slow manner of her speech, her limited vocabulary and strange stares gave off the vibe that she was challenged. And she was marrying Gary Coleman, so that didn’t really help.
Well, now Shannon, who appears to have had her grill fixed along the line, is rolling out (literally, she’s riding around in a wheelchair these days) to take interviews. This one she did with ABC shows Shannon more lucid than ever, surprisingly. Although Shannon and Gary were technically divorced at the time of his death, the two were in the process of a reconciliation and according to Shannon, were planning on remarrying.
Watch the above interview if you have time. I’m interested in hearing what you think about this woman’s character.
