Short temper. Short Marriage. Short, we'll stop there.
After ten months of marriage, Gary Coleman, 40, and his wife Shannon Price, 22, are already in to Divorce Court (NWS). The 4-foot-eight-inch tall Diff'rent Strokes actor and his potential ex, who is five-foot-seven-inches, taped a session of the real-life courtroom drama March 13. Their episodes are scheduled to air on the television show May 1 and 2.
And no matter what the outcome, the duo, married or not, are working with a production company and in negotiations with a network for a future reality series, according to Robert Malcolm, Coleman's agent at Artists Group East. Coleman's agent declined to offer more specifics at this time.
The at odds couple wed back on August 28, 2007 on a Nevada mountain top. The former child star's anger issues apparently are a big part of their marital woes.
“If he doesn't get his way, he throws a temper tantrum like a five-year-old does,” says Price, according to a transcript of the show obtained by the Associated Press. At the same time, Coleman tells Divorce Court's Judge Lynn Toler: “When I try to state my case or explain things to her or try to get her to understand my point of view, my point of view doesn't matter." In other words, not enough time is spent figuring out "What he's talking 'bout."The couple had plenty to say, however, last February, which is when they broke the news of their August union with Inside Edition (GE). The twosome told the show that they did not have sexual relations with each other. “It will happen when it happens,” Coleman said at the time. Also that month, Coleman and Price talked about his anger issues on the Early Show (CBS). “I threw the printer because my agent wanted to send me a fax and it wouldn't fax," said Coleman. Price added, “Well, he throws things around and sometimes he throws it in my direction.”
