R.I.P. Gary Coleman (1968-2010)

This post is dedicated to Mr. Gary “Whatchu’ Talking ‘Bout Willis” Coleman (1968- 2010). His life was tragic. I am so happy he’s finally @ peace. He’d been in the tabloids in an unfavorable light for the past few years. Although much of it was his own making, he still didn’t deserve for his life to end the way it ended.

I grew up on Diff’rent Strokes. I had the worst crush on Todd Bridges. I was so jealous when he was with Janet Jackson. I, like the rest of the world, has been witness to the child star curse that’s plagued so many child stars. I cried when Dana Plato committed suicide. I cried even harder, just recently, when her son committed suicide.

I sincerely hope that Todd Bridges will escape the Diff’rent Strokes “curse”. No one else should suffer needlessly.

R.I.P. Gary!
