Default Gary Coleman should have skipped this episode because it's obvious he was in pain

Looked like he had some braces on and every time he talked it was such a struggle lol You could heard it in his voice like the braces was killing him lol


This was in the episode "The Big Bribe"

Robin Givens? Yeah, she was good looking. She also appeared in an episode of the Cosby Show as one of Denise's friends that Theo had a crush on until he discovered she had a boyfriend. Many years later, she played one of Malik's girlfriends on about 3 episodes of the Game and she looked great then.

didn't Gary Coleman talk about his health problems during the show's run in his biography?

I was under the impression that he was in a lot of pain, and he didn't even want to do the show anymore but his parents/manager were basically forcing him to keep doing it because he was their meal ticket.

Can you imagine being a kid and having to act while being seriously ill, because your parents think of you as a cash cow?

I just saw that episode again, and it looked like Gary had been losing weight (perhaps a by product of his dialysis treatments) again towards the last few episodes. I wonder how the shooting schedule for Season 8 was like because towards the end, Todd Bridges cut his hair (at the start of the last season, he had a jeri-curl hairstyle before changing it to closely cut fade)?

I'm not sure what all the "lol"s are about, considering you're talking about someone in pain.
