X17 XCLUSIVE - Larry King Pushes For Ryan Seacrest As His Replacement, Doubts His Political Knowledge

Jun 30, 2010 12:34 PM

Now that Larry King has announced that he will end Larry King Live this fall, the CNN veteran journalist is gunning hardcore for his buddy Ryan Seacrest to take over the talk show ... telling us, "I hope he does."

When it comes to Ryan handling the job's political duties, Larry admits to X17online exclusively:

    "In all the years I've known him, I'm not sure how much interest he has in politics. You can't do that show without being a political junkie. If he has that, he'd be terrific."

Larry didn't have anything to say about Katie Couric joining the network...despite reports claiming she's still considering the spot.

As for Ryan, we have to admit ... Ryan Seacrest Live sounds pretty good!

X17 XCLUSIVE - Shawn King Out Of Hospital And "Feeling Great," Says Her Father

Jun 10, 2010 04:17 PM

karlshawnlarry460-1.jpgDespite the police report claiming Provo, Utah officers felt Larry King's wife Shawn "might hurt herself," Shawn's father Karl Engemann maintains his daughter is putting the May 28 incident behind her and "she is moving on." On that day, Shawn was found unconscious with multiple prescription pill bottles and what may have been a suicide note next to her bed.

As for reports that Larry King's wife is still in the hospital, Engemann tells X17online exclusively:

    "She's absolutely not in the hospital. She hasn't been there for quite a while. Shawn is out and about in the city today ... working out and feeling great. She's enjoying her vacation and just trying to regroup."

Engemann also confirms that Larry King has, in fact, visited his wife. He adds, "He loves Shawn. Of course he has come to see her. Shawn loves Larry very much, too."

King released this statement:

    “I am extremely supportive of Shawn. Reports that we have fought are absolutely false. I love her dearly. Our marriage is still together and I am staying very close to our children, who we love immensely."

As for Chance,11, and Cannon King, 9 ... although they're not with their mom right now, Engemann says, "They're super kids and both are handling this well."

X17 XCLUSIVE - Larry King Stays Quiet About Wife's Condition

Jun 10, 2010 11:27 AM

Larry King remains tight-lipped when it comes to his wife, Shawn's, health condition. When asked about how she's doing, King replies, "I'm not going to talk about it."

But everyone else is, Larry! At least the CNN talk show host didn't mad dog our cameras this time. On May 28, Shawn, 50, allegedly overdosed on prescription pills.

A police report from Provo, Utah, was released today that lists the following eight prescription drugs Shawn's currently taking: Compro, Prometrium, Clonazepam, Ambien, Klonopin, Subutex, Cymbalta and Lyrica. According to police, all eight prescriptions believed to be filled within the last ten days, were found empty by her bedside.

Don't Mess With Larry King

Larry King is not looking too happy these days. While on a stroll through Studio City, chatting on his cell phone, King couldn't help but scowl at the cameras. Guess he's still not used to being on THAT side of the camera.

The CNN talk show host has continued to remain silent when asked about his wife Shawn's reported overdose this past weekend. In a 9-1-1 tape, Shawn's dad, Karl Engemann, can be heard telling the dispatcher that Shawn may have accidentally overmedicated on prescription drugs that she's been taking for depression and menopause.

A police report from Provo, Utah, lists the following eight prescriptions that Shawn's currently taking: Compro, Prometrium, Clonazepam, Ambien, Klonopin, Subutex, Cymbalta and Lyrica. According to police, all eight prescriptions believed to be filled within the last ten days, were found empty by her bedside.

X17online exclusively spoke with Engemann yesterday, who told us that reports of his daughter being suicidal are "crap."

Even though Larry isn't talking, his rep released the following statement:

    "Our marriage is still together, and I am staying very close to our children, who we love immensely. We shall go through this difficult time intact as a family."

Will King address his wife's condition on Larry King Live? We doubt it.
