    It's almost as if that show WAS cursed.

    Best of luck to him. That show's child actors all have had so many problems. It is almost too sad for words.

    From what I understand, some forms of dwarfism are associated with various other health problems.

    Wow, what is it with that show?

    Sad news.

    ITA about the show being cursed. Did anyone see the latest issue of People Magazine? Dana Plato's son committed suicide almost 11 years to the day that she did

    Yeah, that was tragic.
    Todd Bridges seems to be hanging on and doing well. I saw him on Oprah a few weeks ago - he went through some serious shit as a kid, including sexual abuse and drug/alcohol abuse, but seems to be on the right track now. He has kids that are doing well too.

    What exactly do they mean by "life support"? A breathing tube? Well, many many post-op patients go to the ICU with a breathing tube and are on so-called "life support". It doesn't mean they are likely to die, in fact not. If he fell and now has subdural bleeds, yeah, pretty major stuff. Wish we'd have more info.

    I remember Diff'rent Strokes since it aired. His life has really been tough and it's hard not to feel empathy for him. Wish him a clean and quick recovery.

    ETA: I saw the release that he died. He really lived longer than anyone could have expected. RIP.

    TMZ and RadarOnline are reporting that Coleman just passed away. Have not been able to find it on any other news sources yet.

    It was on network news a few minutes ago. It is confirmed he died of a brain hemorrhage. Contrary to what I've read on the internet, no mention of a fall causing the hemorrhage, they did say that he had a seizure a few months ago.

    Message to Bret Michaels - please be careful!

    RIP, Gary. Seemed like a kind soul who had so many hard knocks in life.

    Looks like last year was the year of the "icon" dying... So far this year seems to be the year of the troubled childhood actor. RIP

    Unfortunately he had severe kidney disease and likely blood vessel fragility in general, so even a more minor trauma could have affected him more than the average person. So sad, may he be happy in his personal paradise and remembered for his talents.

    So sad, so young. But yeah, doubtless his kidney condition contributed to the likelihood of blood vessel injury.

    What is it with celebrity intracranial hemorrhages these days? Gary Coleman, Natasha Richardson, Bret Michaels?

    No more than the general population, especially following head trauma. Although I do admit that Natasha Richardson case was particularly insidious.

    Bret Michael's wasn't caused by head trauma, was it?
