Larry King Divorce A Publicity Stunt?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Larry King is apparently having second thoughts about his eighth divorce.

The 76-year-old CNN newsman and Shawn Southwick, his 50-year-old wife, filed for divorce last week, but are apparently rethinking that decision. The couple reportedly decided instead to work on their marriage by going to counseling after they saw each other at their 11-year-old son`s baseball game in Beverly Hills, according to the San Francisco Chronicle."

Let`s hope that the rumors are true and that Larry King is having second thoughts about his eighth divorce. I`ts not every day that we see such a heartwarming story about a beautiful 50-year-old woman falling madly in love with a 76-year-old codger who looks like a gnome who has just been run over by a bus.

Southwick has been married to Larry King a mind-boggling 13 years, that`s a hell of a long time waiting for the wealthy geezer to die. She might as well reconcile with King, and wait a few more months for King to kick the bucket.

Baseball is as exciting as watching grass grow, Southwick should take King to an ultimate fighting event, there`s a good chance that King might have a heart attack.

Is this a publicity stunt, or is this a case of a husband and wife realizing that they can`t live without each other?
