Old People Sex: The Larry King Saga Continues

59830962

Last week we thought it was gross when we heard the rumor that Larry King was sleeping with his wife Shawn Southwick-King‘s sister. The infidelity led Shawn to file for divorce, although now they are reportedly trying to work it out. Seems weird, right? Knowing your elderly husband is able to genetically compare you to your sister “down there?” (God, sorry, we even grossed ourselves out with that one.)

It sounds like Southwick may have committed some indiscretions of her own, which might be why she’s willing to work things out and not lay all the blame on Larry. Little League baseball coach Hector Penate claims that he and Southwick had an affair starting in 2007, and he told In Touch that her infidelity was motivated by revenge. “I really think she had the affair with me because of him and her sister,” Penate said. He also told Entertainment Tonight that Southwick would whisper sweet nothings to him, like “Don’t worry, he’s gonna die soon,” referring to Larry.

But our most favorite tidbit is that Penate and Southwick had sex while Larry’s show was on in the background. “We had sex in Larry’s bed — a lot, I had sex with Shawn while Larry was on TV. Our sex life was real good,” Penate told the magazine. Lube? Check. Mirrored ceiling? Check. Larry King’s raspy “Go ahead, caller, you’re on!” in the background? Hell yes. Who wouldn’t get turned on by that?

We Hate Secrets, Mel And Oksana. What Are You Hiding?

59811510

We weren’t all that intrigued by Mel Gibson‘s breakup with his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva until Grigorieva started playing with our head today and making cryptic remarks about the cause of the split. In a very X-Files/”The Truth Is Out There” way, the Russian singer hinted that even though she can confirm that they are no longer together, there are additional details to the story that no one’s talking about yet. She said “I can tell you that..we have split up, suddenly and recently. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon.”

Of course our minds are racing and we’re wondering what the hell she means. We’re speculating (er, hoping?) that Mel has knocked up yet another woman, which is a better story than if Oksana is writing a tell-all book and we’ll have to pay $19.95 to read all the details. Or maybe it’s just because Mel told Oksana that it would be a good idea to get a hammer and sickle tattoo and she realized he’s not that smart after all. (Seriously – a Communist symbol on your ankle? We’re all for hometown pride, but that’s just…weird.) We’re dying for these details to be revealed, why must you torture us like this, Oksana?

Cue Eyeroll: Jon Gosselin Wants Another Show With Kate

59369052

Back when we watched Jon And Kate Plus 8 and were sympathetic to Jon Gosselin because he was just a berated, verbally abused husband, we remember that Jon always seemed like he wanted off the show. After announcing his divorce from Kate, he adamantly described how much he grew to hate the fame and paparazzi that stemmed from his public life.

Ironically, after the show ended Jon and Kate both seem to be doing anything they can to stay in the public eye, and now Jon says he would do another show with Kate “under the right circumstances,” if she’s game. It was just announced that Kate has worked out a deal with TLC for two new shows including a series of specials called Kate Plus 8 which will feature the Gosselin kids. Sounds like Jon is feeling a little excluded.

Just to play devil’s advocate for a moment, Jon, don’t you remember when you guys couldn’t even do your interviews in the same room, on the same love seat, because you hated each other so much? And remember how you are currently SUING Kate for custody of your kids and claim she is “addicted to the paparazzi”? Guess you have to pay your legal fees somehow though, huh? Because getting a real job would be too hard, and you wouldn’t get free swag if you did that anyway.

George Clooney: A Bachelor Once More

george-clooney
In news that’s not that surprising (but still worthy of a big fat OMG), George Clooney has split from his girlfriend of nine months, Elisabetta Canalis. Sources told Grazia magazine that Clooney grew tired of Canalis’ partying, while Canalis grew tired of George’s friendships with various other women, but they stayed together an extra few months for the sake of – wait for it – awards season. “Oscar, Emmy, and yes, you too Golden Globe, gather round. Mommy and Daddy have something very difficult to tell you…”
Canalis is just the latest in a l…o…n…g line of Clooney arm candy to be ditched like his old mullet. An abbreviated list of his past B-list relationships includes Kelly Preston, French waitress Celine Balitrain, Fear Factor contestant Sarah Larson, and Days of Our Lives actress Krista Allen. He was also briefly married to actress Talia Balsam (that’s Mona Sterling to you Mad Men fans). Clearly the Cloons has low-budget taste in the ladies (Krista Allen might be better known as soft-core loving Emanuelle), which makes us wonder who has dibs on the next short-lived affair – she’s totally a brunette, possibly foreign, and you’ve likely never heard of her.
