Larry King & his estranged wife are kinky, cheating bitches

Larry King Seeks 8th Divorce

For now, it looks like Larry King and his estranged wife Shawn might be putting their most recent divorce filings aside. Just for a moment, to catch their breath (and reload). While they are trying to work sh-t out, more stories about their strange, gross, and kinky marriage are coming to light. CB points out that the National Enquirer has been covering much of the same subject matter for more than a year, and that the Enquirer was right about everything. Basically, the current coverage claims that Larry King has been boning his wife and his wife’s sister “for years” and that Larry’s wife Shawn had a long-term affair with her sons’ soccer coach, Hector Penate. Hector has spoken about his affair with Shawn before, and now he’s giving many more interviews. Here’s a photo of Hector, and In Touch Weekly’s story:

After 13 years together, Larry King and Shawn Southwick are reportedly considering a divorce after Larry had an alleged affair with Shawn’s younger sister, Shannon Engemann, and Shawn slept with their kids’ baseball coach for a year and tried to have a baby with her lover through in vitro fertilization. In an exclusive interview with In Touch, the baseball coach, Hector Penate says Larry knew about their steamy trysts but didn’t even care because he was so in love with Shannon.

“I still think to this day that Larry is in love with Shawn’s sister,” he explains.

Hector admits that he quickly fell “in love” with Shawn after they met in 2007. Two-and-a-half weeks later, they started sleeping together, although Shawn has denied the affair with Hector.

“Larry was in New Hampshire and I was training the kids,” Hector reveals to In Touch. “Then she made a couple of hints to me that she was ready to go. We were in the car and we just started kissing.”

From there, says Hector, the two spent more and more time together — and they even vacationed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, together with her sons Chance and Cannon. Their physical chemistry was intense, Hector adds: “We had sex in Larry’s bed — a lot. I felt like it was my house.”

Shawn also bought Hector extravagant presents. “She paid my rent, she bought me clothes and a BMW 7 Series.” But the biggest gift she almost gave him? A baby. “She wanted to have a little girl with me. She was trying to fertilize her eggs to do that.”

If that’s not strange enough, Larry co-signed Hector’s Studio City, Calif., apartment. “She controlled him,” he says. “He just sat there and signed it.”

And even though Larry is approaching 80, Hector says that the newsman has an active libido and makes this shocking claim: “He’s a [sex] freak,” Hector says, adding that he believes Larry was sleeping with both Shawn and Shannon.

Did you also dry heave when reading that last part? How could you not? Radar also has an extensive and exhaustive piece about the Kings’ marriage, and they basically confirm all of the above (Radar piece here). Let’s see, new material:

*A source says that Larry fired his wife’s lover as soon as he found out about the affair, around the summer of 2008, despite the fact that his two children “idolized Hector.”

*A source also claims that Shawn was so distraught by the affair between Larry and her sister that it was one of the causes of her depression and the start of her drug dependency issues: “The reason why Shawn was in such a depressive state all the time and started her dependency on drugs – because her husband was spending an exorbitant amount of money on his sister-in-law , her sister.”

*Hector just wanted to be famous. A source says: “I’ve known Hector for a very long time and he’s been very ambitious from the very beginning, very ambitious. When he gets something in his head, he’s like very driven. And this whole acting thing for him, he, you know, I guess back in 2004 or 2003 he decided he really wanted to be an actor and that was what he ate, slept, dreamt and breathed – acting. I mean, it was like that’s all he wanted to do all of a sudden. And that’s probably why I wasn’t surprised to hear he was having an affair with Shawn, because I thought he probably just thought that that was his ticket to Hollywood. I think Hector’s looking for his 15 minutes of fame, and I guess he’s getting them.”

Oh, and this Hector dude ALSO gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight (via NYDN) in which he claims that Shawn would complain about Larry and then say, “Don’t worry, he’s gonna die soon.” Ew. This Hector dude is giving me the creeps. All of them are, actually. This scandal is so gross.

    Note to self-do not open stories about the Kings during breakfast time.

    ditto to happymom…YUK

  4. JulieNewmar says:

    Swingers … not surprised, but certainly grossed out. Especially by anyone using the term “boning” and Larry King in the same sentance.

  5. JulieNewmar says:

    *sentEnce…woopsie .*whispers* a bitch will get stabbed around here for a spelling error. 😉

  6. Jane Q. Doe says:

    To make it even stranger, Mrs. King is also supposed to be a devout Mormon.

    What does the tattoo across his chest say? Not a great idea for an actor if you can’t even wear a t-shirt without your tats showing…

  7. canadianchick says:

    Just eww. I think Larry should consider staying single as he doesn’t do marriage well..8 weddings does not a marriage make.

  8. Eden says:

    Larry King is incapable of conducting an interview with intelligence, focus and depth, no wonder he lacks the same ability’s & quality’s in his relationships.
    That picture of him resting on her shoulder is so funny… I would not be able to control myself from swatting him off like a fly.

  9. lastwordlinda says:

    I like the picture where Larry is taking a quick old-man nap and Shawn is holding him up. That’s so sweet.

  10. MaiGirl says:

    NO amount of money would be enough for me to look at Larry King’s O-face on the daily. NONE!!!

  11. Gloria says:

    He looks like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons…

  12. Beck says:

    CNN should have gotten rid of Larry a long time ago. He ruins so many interviews. He is terrible and should retire.

    I don’t understand these types of marriages. He should have stopped marrying after the third marriage. It really becomes a joke after that. I wonder what vows he used.

    Does anyone know if the other wives were much younger than him too?

    I feel a tiny bit sorry for him if the story about signing the lease is true.

  13. irishserra says:

    To think those innocent children are growing up in this cesspool of a household…

  14. Erin says:

    LOL @JulieNewmar!! 🙂

  15. Bodhi says:

    Hector is hot! And the idea of Larry King having sex makes me want to throw up.

    I like his tattoo. My husband has one like it (his says wild rover) & I think its sexy has hell!

  17. Tia C says:

    The baseball coach is hot.

    I don’t understand why people like Larry King keep getting married. 8 times?! Why even bother? Be single, then you can “bone” (*cringe*) whomever you want.

  18. Juice in LA says:

    Love that a plastic blonde bicch from Beverly Hills can still shag the pool boy and pilfer money out of the rich old geezer who was fool enough to think she’d be “faithful”.

  19. Jeri says:

    The tattoo is not as bad as those neck tattoos. There’s gonna be a lot of sorry people as they age & sag & can’t get work cuz of a ugly tattoo.

  20. Kitty2000 says:

    Thanks Maigirl. I was doing OK blocking out the nasty thoughts until you said “O-face”. *shudder* Now I have to take out my brain and clean it.

  21. Bee says:

    @Beck I co-sign what you said about Larry retiring. His interviews are so bad they’re embarrassing to watch. He also seems mildly annoyed with his guest. It’s like he’s angry with them for interrupting his naptime.

  22. original kate says:

    larry king’s 0-face? *shudder*

  23. Lia says:

    Shawn Southwick is one very scary-looking woman. ((shudder))

  24. Chessie says:

    What some women will do for money…

  25. I Choose Me says:

    Eyuck! Both Larry and the missus remind me of the skeksies from Dark Crystal. *shudder*

  26. Sincerity says:

    At least The Kings did have “something” in common — a healthy disrespect for marriage and commitment. These two should have never had children. I know their kids must read the Internet! Taking your “boy toy” on a Mexican vacation with your kids! Pleeeeease!
