Larry King's Wife "In Good Shape" After Apparent Overdose

I'd need medication if I had to sleep with his ass too!

A spokesman for Larry King says Larry's wife, Shawn, is just fine, thank you, as she is recovering from an apparent drug overdose last month.

Radar Online obtained a 911 call from May 28 in which emergency medical workers were called to Shawn's home in Provo, Utah. Her father Karl Engemann dialed 911 after finding Shawn, 50, in her bed, breathing but not responsive. He told dispatchers that he thought she may have taken too much medication for anxiety or depression.

"She's unconscious. I slap her and I holler at her, and she opens her eyes halfway and puts them back down again," he says early in the call. He also explains that he arrived at Shawn's house because they were scheduled to go to a meeting together. He insisted she was not suicidal.

Larry and Shawn King filed for divorce in April, but Larry released a statement Wednesday saying their marriage is still together, reports AP. King spokesman Howard Rubenstein told AP that Shawn is in good shape and enjoying her life.
