Don't write these drama queens life partners off just yet.
Larry King and Shawn Southwick have halted divorce proceedings, King's lawyer confirms, despite reports just yesterday that the divorce was on.
"Larry and Shawn met with a counselor today," Dennis Wasser said. "It was decided mutually that there will be no activity for two weeks' time."
"Several issues need to be discussed and resolved."
Among those unresolved issues? Whether or not King is still (or was ever) boning Shannon Engemann, the younger sister of Shawn Southwick.
Larry King, wife Shawn Southwick, their two cute sons and his hot sister-ln-law / possible mistress Shannon Engemann (right). What a strange story.
Last Wednesday, Larry King and Shawn Southwick, who married back in 1997, separately filed divorce papers, citing irreconcilable differences.
They have two children: Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9. Their baseball coach, Hector Penate, may or may not have been sleeping with Southwick.
Shawn, Larry's seventh wife (and his eighth marriage in all) had asked for primary custody of their two sons, plus spousal and child support.
"My major concern is the welfare of my children," King said.
Rumors began surfacing Monday that the divorce may be on hold while the couple works things out, or at least works out the details of a split.
Which route they take is something we'll have to wait and see. The burning question ... how does freaking Larry King get these hot babes?!
