Shawn King: A Deliberate Overdose?

Jun 10 2010 | Comments 0

There are few things more mind-boggling than Larry King and his ability to find gorgeous women to sleep with and marry. They all seem far too attractive for a batlike homonculous like King. Check out this video, and see if you don’t agree that he’s sadly desperate to seem young, hip and not batlike. But then the black jacket just makes it worse. es_larryking2_1119_480x360

Sadder still than the jacket is the fact that wife Shawn is by his side, defending his aggressive questioning of Marie Osmond, whose son committed suicide. Now King is dealing with a suicide drama of his own: Wife Shawn has overdosed, and the rumor is she left a note implying that she wanted to die. Now TMZ, a guilty pleasure of mine, suggests perhaps Shawn wanted to die because of Larry’s affair with her sister. That’s right all-you-smart-people-who-wisely-don’t-keep-up-on-gossip-and-thus-didn’t-know-this-before: LARRY KING, A BATLIKE HOMONCULOUS, SLEPT WITH HIS WIFE’S INCREDIBLY ATTRACTIVE YOUNGER SISTER.

Shawn King Depression Triggered by Alleged Affair

Sources tell TMZ Shawn King’s depression started, continued and never stopped over Larry King’s alleged affair with Shawn’s sister.We’re told Shawn has been “extremely depressed” for more than five years … and the trigger was Larry’s alleged long-term involvement with Shannon Engemann.

As we first reported, Shawn had a showdown with Larry several years ago and as a peace offering Larry transferred title to all three of the couple’s homes to Shawn. We’re told Shawn has struggled for years, believing her husband remained involved with Shannon. One source says, “She fought like crazy to remain sane, just to take care of her kids.”

We’re told even though Shawn reconciled with Larry and put the divorce proceedings on ice, she remained deeply depressed. One source says, “Shawn’s not a pill popper, but she feels it’s her only way to deal with her depression.”

Shannon has denied having an affair with Larry.
