Larry King's wife Shawn Southwick reportedly overdosed on prescription drugs in what investigators are considering a suicide bid. Fortunately, Shawn failed.
It all went down May 28 when Shawn's dad called 911 from the Kings' home in Provo, Utah, telling the dispatcher Shawn was breathing but not responsive.
Shawn King left a handwritten note stating she OD'd on purpose and indicated where she wanted to be buried, according to police, who found a lot meds.
Larry King says their marriage is still intact, despite both of them filing for divorce in April. Later, they called it off and decided to make the marriage work.
Apparently things went south between then and May 28, though.

Among the medications found at the home, Subutex is used to treat narcotic addiction, while Cymbalta is an anti-depressant and Lyrica a seizure treatment.

Sources close to Shawn Southwick say she battles depression, which started, continued and never stopped over Larry King's alleged affair with her sister.
Shawn has been "extremely depressed" for more than five years, and the trigger is believed to be Larry's long-term involvement with Shannon Engemann.
