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.


CELEBRITY REHAB WANTS LIZA MINNELLI

"We want her in the Mackenzie Phillips/Gary Busey position -- already sober but strengthening her sobriety. We would not portray her as a drug addict."

Tila Tequila and Hills star Jason Wahler have already signed on for the show.

KRISTEN STEWART SAYS FAME IS LIKE BEING "RAPED"

Fame might be a bitch, but for Kristen Stewart it's like being "raped."

She tells Britain's Elle, "What you don't see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction. The photos are so... I feel like I'm looking at someone being raped."

Those comments didn't sit well with rape crisis groups. The executive director of the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault said, "It's clearly a poor choice of words."
