He acts like a child. She always makes him the bad guy. After less than a year of marriage, this is what it’s come down to for Gary Coleman and Shannon Price.

While the 40-year-old Diff’rent Strokes star and his 22-year-old bride of eight months aren’t getting a divorce, they will be airing this and other marital laundry next month on TV’s Divorce Court, the Associated Press reports.

“If he doesn’t get his way, he throws a temper tantrum like a 5-year-old does,” Price complains, according to a transcript of the show obtained by the AP. “He like stomps the floor and yells, ‘Meehhhh,’ and starts throwing stuff around. He bashes his head in the wall, too.”

Coleman counters that “the male is always the bad guy,” but acknowledges he does have his demons.

“It’s not her fault,” he says. “I always feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders every day I get up. … There are days I don’t even want to get up.” — Mike Fleeman
