Larry King: Divorce #8, Bye Shawn Southwick!

Larry King: Divorce #8, Bye Shawn Southwick!

Larry King has filed for divorce for the eighth time.

The 76-year-old CNN talk show host and Shawn Southwick, 50, married back in 1997 and have two sons together. Larry cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to TMZ.

Shawn is the 7th woman to marry Larry – he married Alene Aknis in 1961, divorced her in 1963, remarried in 1967 and divorced her in 1972. Phew!!

In 2007, Shawn joked that she was the only one of Larry‘s wives to have lasted into “the two digits”.

    I guess she jinxed herself by that comment of hers. So much for the conservative “save the family” values, hahaha.

    The news that Larry King was having an affair with his wife’s younger sister, Shannon Engemann, is not only too much information (TMI), but it is the kind of information that boggles the mind. Once I read the allegation from Shawn Southwick (King’s wife of 13 years) my imagination ran wild as to how that dalliance came to fruition in the first place…Read more at Huffington Post approved blog, IMeanWhat?!? at

    Larry will have to keep working until the day he (literally) dies on TV in his suspenders to pay for all those divorces.

    Why any woman would want to marry him is beyond me…oh wait– for the money!
