Our Daily Dread: Why Larry King and Frank McCourt can enjoy games together even more this season


It’s not the kind of story you want to see a day after you allow someone to proclaim to the world, “It’s time for Dodger baseball.”

Which is what the Dodgers allowed Larry King to do on the home opener Tuesday. With two of his kids (grand kids … great grand kids…. still not sure), the CNN question-asker was asked to do the duties.

Today, this comes out:

Larry King, 76, and his wife, Shawn Southwick, 50, have both filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences,” the New York Daily News reports.

Acording to the article, “The marriage crumbled after Southwick accused King of having an affair with her younger sister, Shannon Engemann, TMZ reported. The National Enquirer first reported the creepy inter-family cheating allegation in December, quoting an unnamed friend of Southwick’s. The tabloid also said Southwick had an affair with her son’s baseball coach in 2008 – a claim she denied.”

Engemann denied to TMZ that she had an affair with King.

The Daily News article also reports that King has asked for “joint custody of the couple’s two sons, Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9,” while his wife has asked “for primary physical custody of the boys, spousal and child support and the couple’s Beverly Hills mansion.”

Chance and Cannon … We won’t even go there.

For those keeping track: Lawrence Harvey Zeiger King has been wed eight times to seven women.
