(Newser) – Apparently everyone thinks Shannon Price caused Gary Coleman’s fatal fall—and in her attempt to quash the rumors, she’s actually spreading them. “People are so cruel, and they don’t even know,” she says in an interview obtained by TMZ. “I was upstairs. He was downstairs. How am I gonna push him?” She goes on to justify her decision to pull the plug, since Gary “would have died sooner or later anyway.”

(Read more of her bizarre quotes, left.) In the truly disturbing interview, she goes on to say Coleman would have been a better role model than someone like Lindsay Lohan, and reminisces about all the “high-end” shopping trips they used to take to Vegas…right before asking fans to contribute money for Coleman’s funeral. In other Coleman news, his estranged parents say they’ve “heard the rumors” about his death and are going to court to fight for his body, Radar reports. And oh yeah…there’s a secret will.
