We realize people grieve in different ways.

But for Gary Coleman's self-proclaimed wife (not actually his wife anymore), that means a non-stop PR tour talking about their "golden" relationship.

And selling Gary Coleman death photos.

On Good Morning America, Shannon Price said the two were to renew their vows (since they divorced in 2008 after marrying in 2007) in the future.

A little convenient, since she was not named in the will Coleman left behind. She did, however, have legal authority to take the star off life support.

Her attorney, however, has argued in recent days that the 42-year-old had always intended for his once (and apparently future) wife to be provided for.

She's sure taking that into her own hands.

Shannon Price Mug Shot

PAY THE PRICE: Shannon's mug shot from her 2009 domestic abuse arrest. No one suggested she had a role in Gary's death, but her conduct since then is deplorable.

Shannon Price says she has been "plagued by rumors" that she had something to do with his passing, either by pushing him to cause his initial fall, a claim she denies, or that she did not think through pulling the actor off life support.

"People can say whatever they want 'cause I know the truth. I would never hurt my husband, ever. I would take my own life before I would harm him."

Maybe so, but that was one nonchalant 911 call.

"The doctors advised me that it was grim and, you know, he went into cardiac arrest and the doctors advised me that this was the best thing for him."

She reiterated those comments on Entertainment Tonight, saying she did what was "best for him," and claiming that "he was already a vegetable."

She also revealed to ET his last words: "He said, "I love you and my head hurts.' Those were the last he said to me because he was in a lot of pain."

We're sure he'd approve of her telling the world this to make money. Sick person. Follow the jump for a clip of Price on Good Morning America ...

In disturbing news, a sequence of Gary Coleman photos depicting the former child star in the hospital last month are being shopped to celebrity news outlets.

In one photo, Coleman is dead. In another, his eyes are closed and he is on a ventilator. It's as sad as it is pathetic that someone took and is trying to sell it.

That person? None other than Shannon Price, the ex-wife of the troubled 42-year-old actor, and the one who made the decision to take him off life support.

Her asking price is low five figures, and if someone pays that, or anything, we suggest they pack lightly and join Price where she's going soon - it's warm.

Ever since the release of the Gary Coleman 911 call last week, Price has come under intense scrutiny - and now wants up to $50,000 for interviews as well.

Gary Coleman and Shannon Price wed in 2007 and divorced in 2008. They never remarried, but reconciled and were living together at the time of his May 28 death.

Supposedly, Shannon is even offering to give - for the right price - a video tour of the house and where they lived, and where Gary suffered his ultimately fatal fall.

At first, we didn't believe Shannon Price was the person hawking the death photo. But that was our mistake - she's never seemed like a girl who wouldn't do that.

If you recall, Price sold a video interview within 24 hours of his death, denying that she had a role in his fall (which no one suggested) or that she wanted him dead.

This situation is growing increasingly weird, if not suspicious. Since then, she has reportedly tried to sell additional interviews at increasingly high prices. Sickening.

UPDATE, 1:49 p.m. EST: Three of the four pictures of Gary Coleman's final moments among the living have been sold to a tabloid, but not the actual death photo.

The four photos, which Gary's ex-wife orchestrated, may hit stands as early as this week. In one pic, Shannon poses next to a bedridden Gary, riddled with tubes.

Shannon will get a cut of the profits. Disgusting.

With the late actor's ex-wife Shannon Price and his parents feuding over custody of his body, Gary Coleman will not be laid to rest this weekend as planned.

Sue and Willie Coleman, estranged from the Diff'rent Strokes star at the time of his death, and Price, who secretly divorced Coleman in 2008, are at odds.

Legally authorized to make medical decisions on Gary's behalf despite their legal split, Shannon Price told doctors to pull the plug in Coleman last Friday.

She also placed the Gary Coleman 911 call two days earlier, when the star fell and suffered severe brain trauma that ultimately landed him on life support.

Beginning with the 911 call, her behavior over the past week was odd. In an interview, she adamantly denied pushing Gary - an accusation no one made.

Price is now planning his funeral, but the Colemans plan to file for legal control over their son's remains, which they want sent to his hometown, Zion, Ill.

Gary Coleman and Shannon Price wed in 2007, then divorced in 2008.

"The Colemans don't want to fight with anyone," their lawyer said, adding that no valid will has surfaced yet. "They just want to bring their son home."

Gary and his parents' estrangement dates back to a 1989 lawsuit, in which he accused them of stealing a large portion of his fortune as a child star.

Gary's agent, Sheila Erickson, counters that "It's clear that [Shannon Price] is the one that Gary wants to represent him, as she did in the hospital.

"He didn't mention, at any time, his parents."

And it gets even more complicated. "No one's come forward with what appears to be a valid will," attorney Randy Kester told the Salt Lake Tribune.

"He had an old trust prepared, by whom I don't know. Every copy I had seen was unsigned. He simply wouldn't take the time to go and get that done."

Gary Coleman's ex-wife Shannon Price is speaking out, defending her actions the day of his eventually fatal fall as well as her decision to take him off life support.

Calling Coleman her spouse - even though they were secretly divorced - Price tells TMZ indignantly: "Why would I want to kill my husband? Are you kidding me?"

Strangely, Price said that she's heard speculation that she pushed Gary, which caused him to fall and his brain to hemorrhage. Price insists she didn't push Gary.

As she said during the Gary Coleman 911 call, Shannon adds that the two of them were on different floors at the time he fell, so how could she have pushed him?

An odd statement, since no one has actually accused her of this.

Shannon Price married the former child star in 2007 and divorced him in 2008. She adamantly denies pushing Gary Coleman, which no one suggested happened.

Of her decision to pull the plug on the life support machines keeping Coleman alive, Shannon says she didn't want Gary to be like Muhammad Ali or Terri Schiavo.

"The doctors told me that even if they had done surgery on him, he would have bled to death and died during surgery ... if they took a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same. He would be like Muhammad Ali."

"It would have been so traumatic."

She wants us to put ourselves in her position. Admittedly, it's a position no one should ever have to endure, yet something about her conduct seems a little off.

On a happier note, Shannon Price fondly mentions that Gary Coleman did a lot for her, like buy her a car. Of his own volition. That was, like, really nice of him.

Was Shannon Price in the right by taking Gary Coleman off life support?

After the Gary Coleman 911 call was released yesterday, that question is being hotly debated, given her strange comments and behavior on the phone.

She's likely to come under even more scrutiny now that documents have surfaced proving that Coleman and Price secretly got divorced back in 2008.

They wed in 2007 but split, legally, a year later due to "irreconcilable differences." A judge signed off on the divorce, and they did not get re-married.

Yet they were in bed together the night of Gary's ultimately fatal injury.

Shannon Price and (apparently) her ex-husband Gary Coleman.

Price was the one who called 911, as we know, one week ago now, reporting that Coleman had fallen down in their Utah home and was unconscious.

According to the Santaquin Police Department, The Diff'rent Strokes star was bleeding from a laceration on his head when the paramedics arrived.

He was able to answer their questions and was also able to walk to the ambulance that transported him to the hospital, the incident report states.

Price stayed upstairs once paramedics arrived, telling them she "didn't want to be traumatized." Officers stated they observed "nothing suspicious."

Coleman, who had been in a weakened state when he fell after undergoing a four-hour kidney dialysis treatment, later suffered a brain hemorrhage.

He slipped into a coma was taken off life support on Friday by Shannon Price, who identified herself as Coleman's wife, despite the fact that she isn't.

The 911 call made when Gary Coleman fell last week at his home in Utah is not for the faint of heart. Be forewarned: It is graphic, upsetting material.

Well, unless you're his wife, Shannon Price. Woman didn't seem too moved by the whole situation - at least not enough to drive Coleman to the hospital.

“I don’t know what happened,” Price told the dispatcher, requesting that they "send someone quick because I don’t know if he’s going to, like, be alive.”

Gary was conscious during the call, but Shannon says he's "like, not with it." Price then added that "I'm gagging. I've got blood on myself. I can't deal."

On the call, Shannon initially refused to walk over and assess Gary’s condition because she was stressed and she doesn’t “want to be traumatized.”

Imagine how Gary felt ...

She also told him numerous times to put pressure on a cut on the back of his head and to "Sit down!" as if he were some sort of animal. It's really sad.

We realize Shannon Price suffers from seizures and was in the throes of trauma, but she certainly doesn't come off very sympathetic here ... or useful.

The 911 call was placed Wednesday, before the actor was hospitalized. Gary Coleman died Friday morning when Shannon removed him from life support.

Might his brain hemorrhage have been prevented or treated more effectively after a swifter response? Might she have waited longer to see if he recovered?

There's no way to know. But it makes you wonder. Just saying.

Just hours after Gary Coleman passed away, his wife of almost three years, Shannon Price, acknowledged her late husband's fan support in a moving statement.

In a press conference, Shannon's brother, Shawn Price, read a note on her behalf:

"We are very grateful for all the wonderful support everyone has been extending to Gary's family," the statement began. "Thousands of emails have poured in to the hospital. It's been comforting to the family to know how beloved he still is."

Here's a nice photo of Gary and Shannon ...

Shannon Price wed Gary Coleman in 2007.

On Wednesday, Coleman, who was born with a congenital kidney disease that caused him to only grow to only 4-foot-8, suffered a brain hemorrhage after he injured his head following a fall in the Utah home he shared with Shannon.

Gary slipped into a coma Thursday, and passed away at approximately 12:05 p.m. in Provo, Utah, surrounded by his wife and other family members. The Diff'rent Strokes actor, who battled health and personal problems throughout life, was 42.

Coleman and Shannon Price had some domestic squabbles and brushes with the law, but worked things out and appeared happy in their marriage of late.

Thank you so much for all that you guys have done and for the support and prayers that you guys have given us," Shannon's statement concluded.

Gary Coleman's wife, Shannon Price, was apparently arrested last night on charges of domestic violence and disorderly conduct in Santaquin, Utah.

The former Diff'rent Strokes star and his wife have a home there.

According to the local sheriff's website, Shannon Price was booked for the two misdemeanors at 8:32 p.m. and then released on $1,205 bond.

Cops report that Shannon Price allegedly broke some household items belonging to Gary Coleman, but that the actor was not physically harmed in the tirade.

Coleman, 41, secretly wed Price, 22, on August 28, 2007, after five months of dating. They met on the set of the 2006 comedy film Church Ball.

In 2008, Coleman and Price appeared on the show Divorce Court to air their differences in front of Judge Lynn Toler. Uncharacteristically for Divorce Court participants, they appeared to save their marriage rather than initiate a separation.

Perhaps a return engagement will be in order after this?
