Not leaving CNN anytime soon: Larry King will work until death to support his ex-wives.
It's a good thing that the 76-year-old Larry King is so spritely in his old age.
Because it looks like he'll be working until his fingers are literally bone in order to pay out all the money he owes to his seven ex-wives. No Prenup! Larry King, What Were You Thinking?
Currently in the middle of a four-year, $56 million contract, the $144-million-dollar man is said to be "trapped at CNN" despite the wealth. There just are SO many hungry mouths to feed:
IN light of Larry King's latest divorce, CNN staffers are cackling that the long-lived anchor is even less likely to leave the network. "He can't quit because he owes alimony to so many different wives," one insider said. King has been married eight times, twice to one woman. His latest, Shawn Southwick, mother of two, will go for half of King's fortune since there is no pre-nup. Shawn, 50, charges that King, 76, slept with her sister Shannon, 46. King, who's worth $144 million according to a report, is now in the middle of a four-year, $56 million contract. His rep had no comment. [Source: NYPost]
In related news, Larry King did allow himself a night off from his talk show to watch his son Chance play baseball. At the game, he and his soon-to-be-ex-wife shared a very public hug.
Perhaps the women of The View are right: Larry King does have a way with the ladies.
