    Larry King Files for Divorce #8

    You would think after so many divorces (plus the $$$ involved) that King wouldn't bother getting married again. But then again (and this may seem cruel), why would a woman, knowing that a man had divorced so many times, think that she would be the one he would stick with?

    Does he have a pre-nup?

    Larry King has lots of money, and more importantly, lots of connections to lots of important Hollywood people. And since he gets divorced fairly regularly, the wife knows she wouldn't have to put up with him for that long.

    In return, he gets a nice female accessory to carry around to various functions and pretends to be a young, studly journalist instead of an annoying old sycophant.

    It's the classic example of Hollywood mutualism.

    Though I am interested in the details as this marriage lasted considerably longer than most would think for King--almost 13 years!--and was more long-lasting than many other Hollywood marriages.

    His wife turned 50, which is too old for Larry. He likes his women young. What a dirty old man.

    BTW, I always thought of Susan Lucci has a butter face, if Larry's her male counterpart would you call him buthiseverything?

    As Samuel Johnson said way back in the 18th century, remarriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

    A butter face: A girl with an exceptionally hot body but an exceptionally ugly face. Everything but-her-face is attractive.

    ie Her body is smokin... but her face (butter face)

    I'm sure the alimony would be good even if there was a prenup.


    Larry, call me. You too Donald Trump. :lol:

    That's the same as labeling someone a BFD: Beauty from a distance.

    Or in the movie Clueless: "She's a Monet." Looks good from a distance.

    :drama: "8 divorces" is just mean talk against that poor charmer Larry. Really it's just his seventh wife, negative nellies!

    So, who's next for this hunky side of beef? :grope: Anyone here angling to be lucky #8?

    Liz Taylor was considered to be one of the most beautiful people in the world. A blind person would think Larry King was ugly.

    Larry's guest tonight is my new crush, Pamela Anderson, so he'd better leave her alone! Better Kate Gosselin would take up with him.

    Once those Hollywood guys get older, they finally seem to pick the wife they want to stay with and settle down. At least, it was that way for Frank Sinatra and Cary Grant and some of the other classic stars.

    So I've heard Elizabeth Taylor is supposedly getting married for the umpteenth time....now Larry King is getting divorced. Hmm....have they finally run out of other people to marry and they'll end up together?

    Based on several news reports on the morning shows, it seems pretty clear Larry had taken up with Shawn's younger sister and Shawn with her son's baseball coach. Not to go get all serious on FSU at 8a.m., but it's really kind of sickening for anyone to have an affair with his sister-in-law. C'mon.

    younger sister?!! :rofl: Yeh, Shawn was getting a little long in the tooth ... virile prowler like Larry can't be stuck with an old woman.

    WTH is wrong with these people? And, I dare to ask, what does King have that would make a [40-something?] sister lose control and join her bag-of-bones 75 year-old BIL in an affair?

    So, if they both had affairs, why did Larry purportedly pledge 5 houses to her, or whatever the rumor is?
