Larry King Divorce #8
Septugenarian talk host Larry King has just filed for divorce. For the eighth time.
Larry, 76, and Shawn, 50, were married back in 1997 — they have two sons together.
Back in 2007, Shawn had bragged about being the only one of Larry’s wives to have made it into “the two digits.” She is the 7th woman to marry King.
As for the eight divorces — back in 1962, King divorced
a woman Alene Akins … and then remarried her in 1967 … before divorcing her again in 1972.
I don’t pretend to know the circumstances of King’s marriages and won’t pass judgment on them. But, to save Andrew Sullivan the trouble, I’ll pose the rhetorical question: How is it that allowing two men or two women to marry one another is ruinous to the institution of marriage but Larry King, Liz Taylor, and other serial divorcers are not?
