EX-WIFE SAYS SHE DIDN'T PUSH GARY COLEMAN 

Shannon Price says she pulled the plug on Gary Coleman's life support because she didn't want her ex-husband to wind up like Muhammad Ali.

In an interview obtained by TMZ, Price defends her decision to take the Diff'rent Strokes star off life support following a fall in their home, saying, "He would've bled to death during the surgery. Even if they did take a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same. He'd basically be like Muhammad Ali."

Price, who had written permission to make medical decisions on her ex's behalf, also addressed rumors that she caused Coleman to fall. "A lot of people sit there and say, yeah, she pushed him. People are so cruel, they don't even know. I was upstairs, he was downstairs. How am I going to push him? Why would I want to hurt my husband, are you kidding?"

Meanwhile, a battle is being waged over Coleman's remains. His parents are seeking custody of his body and want it returned to his boyhood home in Illinois. Coleman died in Utah Friday. His ex-wife had announced that Coleman's funeral would be held in Salt Lake City this weekend.


RUE McCLANAHAN REMEMBERED

Hollywood is remembering Golden Girl Rue McClanahan, who died yesterday at age 76.

Her Golden Girls co-star Betty White said, "Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasured our relationship. It hurts more than I even thought it would, if that's possible."

Vicki Lawrence, who starred with McClanahan on Mama's Family, said, "Rue was a consummate professional, an actors' actor. It was my good fortune to get the chance to work with her during the first season-and-a-half of Mama's Family. When she got stolen away from Mama's Family to do The Golden Girls, I cried."

Norman Lear, creator of All in the Family and Maude, said, "I saw her off-Broadway and I brought her out here for Maude. This was one of the loveliest, funniest, most grounded...I don't have good enough words for her. There are wonderful actors who can do comedy, and there are wonderful actors who can do comedy who are also funny. Rue was funny walking into a room. Her earlobes were funny. Her knuckles were funny. She was just funny."

Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, who was a writer on The Golden Girls, said, "When I worked on The Golden Girls, my favorite character to write for was 'Blanche Devereaux.' In the hands of lesser actresses, Blanche's vanity and sexual appetite would have been off-putting. But in Rue's brilliant hands, that character became one of the most beloved in the history of TV."

Her family has launched "The Official Rue McClanahan Memorial Page" on Facebook.


LINDSAY ON THE "STRAIGHT AND NARROW"

SPEIDI BREAK-UP A PUBLICITY STUNT?

One insider says, "Heidi and Spencer are laughing over it and having a blast." Even Heidi's sister Holly thinks it's a sham, tweeting, "If anyone has come to expect anything from those two is that they are the liars."

GARY COLEMAN 911 CALL RELEASED, WAS DIVORCED AT TIME OF DEATH

Following the release of the Gary Coleman 911 call yesterday came a report that the actor had been divorced from Shannon Price at the time of his death.

Coleman's lawyer, Randy Kester, says the couple got divorced two years ago, raising questions about Price's legal right to take Coleman off life support. A spokesperson for the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center says they are looking into the matter. "Shannon certainly portrayed herself as his wife to our staff and doctors. We assumed she was telling the truth."

Price called 911 Wednesday after Coleman fell, splitting open the back of his head. During the five-minute call, Price tells the operator that Coleman fell while he was preparing a meal for her. "He just got home, I heard this big bang, I went downstairs. Blood everywhere. I don't know if he's okay. I'm not down there right now because I have a fever, if I get stressed out I'm going to faint."

Shannon was reluctant to help Coleman, saying, "I've just been kind of sick. I don't want to be traumatized right now." At first she refuses to go downstairs where he's lying in a pool of blood. When the operator asks her to tell Coleman to put pressure on his own wound, she's heard yelling, "Gary, you have to put pressure on your wound. He's lethargic, I can't really help him. I just need help quick."

Later, the operator asks Shannon "to at least give him a towel" so Coleman can apply pressure to his wound. Price replies, "Yeah, I'm just panicked. I don't know what to do... I just don't want him to die. I'm freaking out."

Gary, who suffered a brain hemorrhage, died two days later when he was taken off life support.
