Larry King Keeping Queen, Officially Calls Off Divorce From Wife. Larry King is keeping his queen. The TV icon and wife Shawn Southwick have officially called off their divorce to save their almost 13 years of marriage. In April, the 76-year-old TV host and his 50-year-old wife each filed divorce papers within minutes of each other. They both cited irreconcilable differences as the culprit. They put their divorce on hold a few days later and sought counseling. But now, it seems that they want to give their marriage another try. They have officially filed papers to dismiss their original petition. King said in a statement: “A lot of new things are happening to us, and we are happy to be together as a family with our children.” A lot has happened in between their official reconciliation period and their divorce filing. Southwick was hospitalized in May after what police labeled a suicide attempt. The two then moved back together. King also announced that he will be hanging up his suspenders and retire from his “Larry King Live!” show, after 15 years on air. The couple have two children together.
