Who'd a thunk it?
A 65 year old wealthy major TV star, not known for his looks, having been married six previous times, mostly if not totally to trophy wives, marries for a seventh time, to a 38 year old trophy wife.
And it lasts TWELVE YEARS!
Who'd a thunk it?
People are actually asking how they could possibly be getting divorced.
This, I won't even consider.
How it lasted more than six months is the shocking thing.
People are also asking how he could even consider marrying her in the first place.
Those people who are asking that, come closer to the screen...........
Okay. Good. Here's the answer:
HOW COULD HE NOT???!!!
People are what they are. Larry King is a serial marrier.
Does anybody think this will actually be his last marriage?
Larry King knows what he is.
He knows why he is attractive to women.
It's not his dimples.
How well would this man do with women if he was an accountant?
He knows his options. Marry gold-diggers, or spend lots o' time with hookers.
Maybe they're one and the same.
I never hear anyone question why his wife Shawn married him.
We all seem to know.
Of course there was no pre-nup.
Ya think she'd marry him with a pre-nup?
Don't ya think he knows she knows she wouldn't marry him with a pre-nup?
And of course, Shawn now wants everything that isn't nailed down.
You know the old joke: " We know what you are, now we're just haggling over price."
They both filed for divorce claiming infidelity on the other's part.
There's a shock.
Yeah. He's enough to satisfy her.
Yeah. She can probably still stomach him.
Yeah. He's never had a roving eye.
I listened to the audiobook of Larry King's latest autobiography.
It is filled with interjected testimonials from family, friends, and particularly, his soon to be ex-wife.
They all couldn't be more lauditory. Particularly from Shawn.
So I'm thinking, "Maybe this one is different"
Now, I'm just giggling.
Why she's hassling him over child custody is the only real question here.
From all reports, he's a wonderful father.
Wait.....do you suppose? Do you think maybe, just maybe, she might be using the kids as a bargaining chit?
So where's Gloria Allred during all this?
Isn't there a women's rights issue that she can find? That must have a role somewhere in all of this, don't ya think?.
You'd think this would be right up her alley. I mean, she's already been representing hookers in the Tiger Woods case.
Where is she? In hiding. That's where she is.
That's all she needs. To piss off Larry King.
And give her one less major outlet for her to mouthe off on National Television.
Maybe these are just two crazy kids having a rough patch.
Maybe they can smoothe things out.
I certainly hope so.

- Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
