One day after Larry King announced his retirement from CNN, his mother-in-law is optimistic about his future, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
In a statement Tuesday, the veteran talk show host announced he was stepping down from his 25-year reign on Larry King Live.
“I talked to the guys here at CNN and I told them I would like to end Larry King Live, the nightly show, this fall and CNN has graciously accepted, giving me more time for my wife and I to get to the kids little league games,” he said.
This comes amid low ratings and family turmoil.
Larry and his wife of 11 years, Shawn, filed for divorce in April after news surfaced that they both had affairs. A few weeks later, the couple, who have two boys-- 10-year-old Cannon and 11-year-old Chance-- reconciled. RadarOnline.com was first to report that during Memorial Day weekend, the 50-year-old suffered from an overdose of prescription drugs at her home in Utah.
Contacted Wednesday, Geraldine Engemann told RadarOnline.com “Shawn’s great, Larry’s great. They’re fine.”
