Explosive new details are surfacing about an affair Larry King's estranged wife had with the kids' baseball trainer; including sex in Larry's own bed and almost being caught red-handed by her own children.
A TV promo released to RadarOnline.com shows Entertainment Tonight reporter Samantha Harris asking: “Did you have an affair with Larry King’s wife?” And, former baseball trainer Hector Penate answers “Yes, I did.”
As RadarOnline.com first reported a source says that Larry fired Penate in 2008 when he found out about the affair, despite the fact that his two children “idolized Hector.”
The ET promo also describes the connection between Hector and the country singer. Penate says “We got back in the car and we kinda locked eyes and just started kissing.”
Our source also says, “There was an attraction between Shawn and Hector as soon as they met, albeit a slightly one-sided one. You could tell Shawn found him attractive and she was flirting with him. I know, because I was there with them! Hector’s a good looking guy. You know, very tall, he’s like 6’2”, 6’3” and he’s got like dark features, he’s got the Hispanic dark feature look going on – every girl found Hector attractive.”
Here's an excerpt from the ET interview:
ET: Did you have sex in Larry Kings house?
Hector: Yes, I did.
ET: Did you have sex in Larry King's bed?
Hector: Yes, I did.
ET: Did that kind of creep you out at all?
Hector: I didn't even think about that to be honest with you. I never thought that would be his bed. I never felt awkward, because I felt like I was in my house. In some weird way I was there so much. Sometimes to be honest with you-- he was on TV--- his show was on while this was happening.
ET: Larry King"s show was on the TV screen when you were with his wife in his bed?
Hector: Yes. He makes her watch the show so that he can review-- like he can check up on her make sure she watched the show. And he's say how did i do?
Sometimes Larry's children would sleepwalk into the bedroom while Hector was there. The interview continues:
Hector: I would dive off and not let them see me or anything like that. Poor kids and then she'd come walk them back to bed. Then I'd come back in bed.
ET: Do you think the kids knew about your relationship with their mother?
Hector: Unfortunately they did, she let the know that I was in love with her. She told the kids flat out.
Hector says one of the children confronted him "The kid would ask me 'Hector are you in love with my mom? Are you getting in the middle of my mom and my dad?'"
He goes on to say "I fell in love with a woman but that doesn't mean her kids had to suffer."
When asked point blank, “Did Shawn know about this affair Larry was having allegedly with his sister-in-law.” He answered, “of course.” Our source claims that Shawn was so distraught by the affair between Larry and her sister that it was one of the causes of her depression and the start of her drug dependency issues.
In what appears to be the cruelest remark from Penate—he was asked if Shawn had discussed divorcing Larry, in the TV promo he answered, “All the time." Then he said she told him "Don’t worry he’s going to die soon, so stick around--things like that-- to me-- nobody wants to hear that’
Our source says ““I think Hector’s looking for his 15 minutes of fame, and I guess he’s getting them.”
The interview appears on Entertainment Tonight Wednesday and Thursday.
