WHAT DOES SHE KNOW?
The tone of Gary Coleman’s wife Shannon, his live in ex wife whom he married in 2007 an divorced in 2008 was cold and harsh. It seems that she is more concerned about herself than Gary and has all kinds of excuses as to why she can’t help him. ” She seems to repeat the phase” I don’t know what happened” as she gets the operator know this several times throughout the call. This is disconcerting as it makes one wonder if indeed she does know what happened.
SHANNON IS FULL OF EXCUSES
She doesn’t even go over to check on Gary as she screams out “Gary, are you OK?” She sound completely self absorbed. Her husband is lying on the floor with the back of his head bloody and all she can say is that she can’t help him because there was blood around,,She says she can’t drive him because she was an epileptic.
But she could manage to yell at him as in a harsh angry and nasty tone as she screamed”Gary, don’t move. Gary Stay there, OK? You have to keep pressure on your head, You got to put pressure on your head.” What happened?
SAYS SHE CAN’T HELP HER OWN HUSBAND
Then she bluntly tells the operator “I can’t really help him” She goes on to say how there is blood in the back of his head. For the umpteenth time she says “ I don’t know what happened.” He hit his head , I don’t know, It’s all bloody you know.”
There were way too many “I don’t know what happened’s” to make you wonder if Shannon did indeed know what happened. It was as the saying goes, “though dost protest too much.”When someone volunteers that much information that wasn’t requested it often can be a very revealing signal of deception and they may possibly know a lot more than they are saying.
Also when someone keeps interjecting the phrase “you know” it means that they are looking for your approval and looking for you to believe them. Shannon spoke those words where she asked for reassurance from the operator several times.
IT’S ALL ABOUT SHANNON
The 911 tape continues to be very disturbing as it continued to be ALL about Shannon. She continues with reasons why she can’t help him by saying “I’ve been sick. I can’t do anything right now,” I don’t know what happened He hit his had I don’t know. Its all bloody and you know”.
She continues with” I don’t know if he had a seizure or hit his head and fell.”
The operator tells Shannon to at least give him a towel so he can put pressure on his head. She then says with atone of annoyance ,”if I can find one for him.”
One would treat an animal better than she treated Gary. You would rush to find a towel or anything to help stop the bleeding.
Then she goes back to herself and say “I;m panicked. I don’t know what to do. I’m freaking out,” The operative words here are “ I” and “ I’m.”This should have been about Gary not her!
YELLING AT GARY IN A MEAN TONE
Then you hear her yelling at Gary in a very mean tone. As she screams at him “‘Don’t move! Stay there put pressure. Hold this thing. Don’t move! I don’t know what Sit down! Sit down!, Gary sit down! “ She speaks to him worse than anyone would speak to an animal.
She is harsh with him and very unloving. It seems that all of her humanity has gone out the window when it comes to Gary and his needs.
Then she goes back to talking about herself and how this has affected her as she says “Im gagging. I got blood on myself.”
What I want to know if how did she get blood herself when she couldn’t bear to touch him let alone be near him during his moment of crises. The whole thing sounded very odd.
TMZ INTERVIEW SHOWS DEFENSIVENESS AND DETACHMENT
Shannon looks down as she said that there has been a lot of speculation that she pushed Gary.
Then she gets very defensive and says “Why would I hurt my husband?” As she says this she gets super defensive in her vocal tone and in her facial expression as he furrows her brow and contorts her mouth in anger.
DID THE DOCTORS REALLY SAY WHAT SHE SAID THEY SAID?
Then she looks down and as she says the following that the doctors said that even if they would have done surgery on him he would have died and bled to death, that even if they took a chunk of his brain he wouldn’t have been the same, and that he would be basically like Muhammed Ali.”
None of this rings true to me, Her body language also says it doesn’t ring true as she looks way up and then looks way down and does not look at the interviewer,This is indicating signals of deception .
If Gary had an intra cranial hemorrhage, he wouldn’t necessarily have bled to death. Look at Brett Michaels. They also would not take a chunk out of his brain for a hemorrhage and finally no doctor would bring up another patient as an example. Muhammed Ali has Parkinson’s disease, not what Gary had.
So what she is saying is ridiculous. It is obviously her self justification for pulling the plug on Gary so soon.
SHANNON DOESN’T WANT PEOPLE TO BE HARD ON HER
She then blames Gary’s heart as the reason for his not making it anyway. As she says this she shows no compassion and seems heartless herself.
She says she doesn’t want people to think she is a bitch “and I didn’t care about him.
Then it continues to be al’ about her as she says be in my situation “Look at Terry Shaivo”
THE ONLY EMOTION SHANNON SHOWS IS ANGER.
Then she gets really defensive and tries to justify her action of pulling Gary’s plug by saying
I always think of her when it come to this.“That was a very odd comment to say the least. She continues to justify her pulling the plug on Gary as she says Gary was gone . His eyes were dilated. She shrugs her shoulders in saying He was just gone as a way to further justify her actions.
The shoulder shrug is that she isn’t sure that he was gone but she as trying to convince herself that he was gone. Also her raised eyebrows mean that she is trying to convince the interviewer as to what she is saying, It also means that she is trying to convince herself that she did the right thing in pulling the plug so soon.
ALL ABOUT SHANNON
There is absolutely NO compassion when she talks about Gary as she says how he bought her a car. She adds “which he chose to do“, indicating that she wants everyone to know that she didn’t demand that he get her one. She makes it a point to a add “which I never asked him for for.”
When someone volunteers that much unsolicited information chances are that it isn’t true. She most likely asked him for a car and he bought it for her.
SHANNON- THE MATERIAL GIRL
She talks about how Gary took her to Vegas because she loves shopping there and loves getting pampered there and how obviously she would but the high end stuff. No wonder she and Gary had money issues!
Then she says how they alwaYs had to stay at Caesars palace but also stayed at Bellagio because they were obsessed with the fountain view room, Shannon coyly looks away form the camera, indicating that she clearly knows whats he was doing. She is letting everyone know that she has a certain lifestyle and now she will no longer have it now that Gary is not there to support her.
SHANNON HITS THE PUBLIC UP FOR MONEY
Shannon now raises her shoulders in victim like fashion and says how she doesn’t know how she will pay for funeral costs . She leans forward for emphasis as she says this and says she doesn’t know how she will survive.
Then she says what a rough time it has been because Gary hadn’t had much work because of his health’ Then this cold, heartless sounding woman with no ounce of compassion in her voice has the audacity to says how Gary worked a lot so her finances were great when they first got married and how now she has nothing.
This clearly indicates how she obviously married him for his money. Then she says how he was never able to have life insurance which could have helped with funeral costs.
She says how now she is hoping people will” pour out to us and show their compassion with money, as they have been sending letters and emails.
WE NOW SEE WHO TO WHOM GARY WAS MARRIED- A HARSH, NOT COMPASSIONATE SELF CENTERED OPPORTUNIST
Is this woman for real? Now that Gary is no longer here to take care of her financially, she has the nerve to tell the public to send money along with their letters and emails.
What about her getting a job and stop looking for handouts like she obviously did by marrying Gary.
This woman in my view has shown in her 911 call and in her TMZ interview that she is obnoxious, cold, and heartless, greedy, selfish,materialistic, and downright unlikable.
Knowing this, I feel terribly sad for Gary. Now I see why he continued to walk around so miserable with a chip on his shoulder. I can see how the dynamics of this TOXIC relationship escalated into domestic violence. There is no doubt that both of them pushed one another’s buttons.
What makes me the saddest and brings me to tears is the fact that poor Gary had to die with no one loving him and holding him. Shannon who lived in the same household didn’t have the human decency to even bring him a towel when he was bleeding to death.
All I can say is Rest in Peace Gary. You are finally free of it all. First it was your parents who used you and betrayed you by taking your hard earned money as a child and now it was Shannon who in a different way, essentially did the same thing.
They both took your loving heart and made you an angry person. After meeting Shannon via her 911 call and TMZ interview, all I can say is who can blame you?
Once again my dear Gary, you no longer have to be angry or fight with anyone. May God Bless you and may you always rest in peace! www.drlillianglass.com
