Gary Coleman: It Was 'True Love' with Ex-Wife

6/14/2010 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Though Gary Coleman and his then-wife split around the time this video was shot, he couldn't stop gushing over her -- and said they had "true" and "unconditional" love.

Gary Coleman

In this clip from a never-aired 2008 reality show pilot, Coleman says his goal is "to keep Shannon [Price] in my life" and that their love "will always be more important than anything else."

The two would divorce that same year.

We ALL know that reality shows are scripted. This one is no difference and that's why in REALITY, he divorced her the same here this was filmed.



She is just ugly inside and out. She clearly didn't benefit his life at all. And in the end, she took his life. I'm sure of it.

I wonder why the pilot never found a home. There are a lot less entertaining programs on. I’ve enjoyed the clips posted on TMZ.

I saw her on a tabloid show last night, and she kept repeating that she "deserves everything" because "Gary wanted it that way." Her jaw was set so tightly it made mine ache. I haven't seen any emotion from her that even resembles sorrow, and she's clearly eating up all the media attention she's getting now. I, too, think she pushed him.

Notice how Gary Coleman's ex-wife doesn't say she feels the same way about him. Love can be onesided and is often blind.
It's far better to go by what people show you AND what they say.



Gary proved his love for Shannon by almost working himself to death.



Shannon proved her love for him by making sure he didn't tell friends or family how he got the open gash in the back of his head, then let it be known during the 911 call she didn't want to help him because she couldn't deal with the blood, had a fever, wasn't feeling well, and didn't want to be traumatized...



Didn't ride to the ER with him, then shopped his dying and dead pictures around for money,attempted to cremate Garys body before an independent medical examination could be conducted ..etc



Forcing a sick man on dialysis without kidneys to work so she could continue live the "high end" life was cruel.

this bitch dont love him. she knew what she was doing and that 911 call she made, she could have saved him but she choose to not do so. that bitch was nothing but a gold digger and she knew what she was doing. she killed him and we all know it. first off, if they was divorced when he was in the hospital how in the hell did he have all rights to pull the plug. it should of been his family choice and i believe they wouldnt have done that. i believe she did it so she can stop dealing with him and just take his money. and she didnt even try to let his family say goodbye before she made that choice to pull the plug. that is very low down, but look at her, of course shes a nobody. and i believe that was a dumb reason to marry her in the first place. please thats the oldest trick in the book. who the hell dont know Gray. man that hoe just lied her ass off and he believed it. please. all i have to say to her and i hope she reads this, thats if she can read. God Bless you Honey for what you did. you dont have no choice to take someones life away. thats God choice.

He obviously loved her. Do you think he told her to sell his death bed photos for money since he knew he didn't have any insurance money? It's hard to believe anyone could be so cold to someone she was supposed to have loved.

Oh yeah! That screenshot definitely says true love, maybe in his face though. She doesn't seem too happy to holding a midg... small person.

In Gary Colemans death bed photo, Shannon has her fist balled up as if she is bragging, while looking mean.
This isn't the posture of someone who is grieving.



Wasn't being at his bedside while he was dying TRAUMATIZING for her? Did she seize then? Can she drive a car now? Has her fever gone down? Is she feeling better?



She didn't ride to the ER with him either. Hey, I'm just saying.



WHY IS SHE TRYING SO HARD TO STOP DOING AN INDEPENDENT AUTOPSY WHEN IT COULD PROVE SHE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH KILLING GARY?



I'LL BET HE CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT RE-MARRYING THIS COW AND PISSED HER OFF ONE TIME TOO MANY!

I read somewhere that the marriage was never even consummated. I too, believe his death should be investigated. Rest in Peace, Gary.

To me it seems Shannon Price is someone who can put powerful energy and inspiration to creativity and service and is quite sure of herself.
Unfortunately she is also egocentric. Often she thinks only of herself whatsoever and probably suffers from black/white thinking. She often sees no detour and goes her own way blindly and determined. Other negative points can be being selfish, lazy, indecisive, stubborn, tyrannical, hating things, be assertive and embarrass others.



Gary Coleman used to be (and maybe he still was) someone who could enjoy the beautiful and little things. His home was sacred and maybe love was the theme of his life.
On the other hand he could make people dependent on him, do what he says. Sometimes he could be very nosy. He could be quite virulent, but hardly be able to handle conflicts. I think he didn't know what to do with problems in his marriage although he says he wanted to save his marriage. Maybe his weak points were his heart and fertility.
For some reason after watching this clip I get the impression Gary loved Shannon more than she loved him.
By the way, who is the dude he was talking to? Some kind of a therapist?
