King and Southwick filed for the divorce citing 'irreconcilable differences". According to TMZ, Southwick blamed the 76-year-old TV show host of sleeping with her younger sister Shannon Engemann. "This is so ludicrous. She's singling me out, but Larry has been nothing but generous to our entire family, including me," Shannon told TMZ.
She said Southwick threatened her over the phone, saying "If you dare sue the Enquirer I will pull out every last receipt that proves you had an affair with Larry. I'm tired of taking the wrap for things. I did not have an affair with Larry," Shannon said.
