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?
