The King is Back
Despite filing dual divorce actions within minutes of each other just a month ago with accusations of infidelity on both sides, CNN talk show host Larry King and his wife, Shawn Southwick, have apparently reconciled their “irreconcilable differences” and called off their divorce for now, according to King spokesman Howard Rubenstein.
Southwick had accused King of committing adultery with her sister but “They have resolved their issues and he’s moving back in,” said Rubenstein. A joint statement released by King and Southwick made the reconciliation official saying, â€œ”We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family. That is all that matters to us. We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other.â€
Southwick’s sister in the incident, Shannon Engemann, recently told a UK newspaper that “It was just a lot of misunderstanding and jumping to conclusions. Shawn and I spoke, and we’re getting along great. We love each other very much. She’s very clear on everything now. She and Larry are both doing well.” King will move back into the Beverly Hills home he shares with Southwick and their two sons after living in a Los Angeles hotel since the split. King’s marriage to Southwick in 1997 was his eighth marriage to his seventh wife.
