Larry King and his estranged wife Shawn Southwick might be sitting down with a marriage counselor next week, but it won’t be to reconcile.

After photos of the CNN star and his eighth wife emerged, showing them looking happy together at their son’s baseball game, speculation suggested the couple was reconsidering their divorce.

"I believe that there is very little chance for reconciliation in this marriage."

King, 76, and Southwick, 50, filed divorce papers on Wednesday after a major bust-up over Southwick's suspicion her husband was having an affair with her sister, Shannon Engemann.
