Shawn King's torrid affair has infuriated her TV star husband, with the exposure of the raunchy text messages sending him straight to a lawyer, a source told RadarOnline.com.
Shawn, 57, was caught sending sexually charged Facebook messages to her lover, and a source close to the former CNN host told RadarOnline.com that their marriage was crumbling. "Larry detests Shawn," said the source. "He has only put up with this for the sake of his children."
When Shawn's lothario complimented her "great ankles, legs, eyes, brain breasts, vagina, etc., etc." she responded that it served her husband right that she had another man appreciating her fine body. She wrote: He "should have thought of that 10 years ago. He just loves the chase. He knows deep down inside he'll never have me again. And that drives him…I shut him off."
"It's been many years and this could finally be the end," the source told RadarOnline.com about their fractured marriage. "They detest each other. She has made his life miserable for some time. At his age he would like to have some peace in his life finally."
Shawn's paramour insisted in one exchange that she should not leave her husband for him, but she entertained the idea and blamed Larry for their misery. "We'll just have to see what happens, won't we?" she responded. Though she wrote she would never leave Larry for another man, she claimed she would dump him "because he killed our romance years ago."
