Hector Penate Confirms Affair With Larry King’s Wife Shawn Southwick

I did not see this coming. With Larry King and Shawn Southwick being so buddy buddy following their dual filing for divorce it seemed like a smooth road ahead whether they split or reconciled and those rumored affairs seemed like just that; rumors. Until now.

Like many of you Shawn would rather sleep with Hector Penate than her 76-year-old husband. The 31-year-old told In Touch that he and Shawn were in fact sleeping together, but her husband didn’t care because he was sleeping with his wife’s sister Shannon Engemann. Penate says the affair started about 2 1/2 weeks after he and Shawn meet in 2007 when he was their kids’ baseball coach. Ironic considering that King and Southwick chose their son’s soft ball game to show their unity

“We had sex in Larry’s bed — a lot,” Penate said. “I had sex with Shawn while Larry was on TV. Our sex life was real good.” On top of claiming that the sex was hot, he also says Southwick wanted his baby and was fertilizing her eggs as well as buying him a BMW and paying his rent. In fact he claims King co-signed the leas for his Studio. “She controlled him,” Penate tells the magazine. “He just sat there and signed it.”

I wonder if this is one of the issues that will be discussed while the divorce activity is on hold. On Monday (April 19) King’s lawyer Dennis Wasser said “It was decided that there will be no divorce activity for two weeks as several issues need to be discussed and resolved.”

I’m inclined to believe the couple worked out a “situation,” but really she wouldn’t care about him laying pipe with her own sister?

Maybe Penate is just looking to extend those 15 minutes so he can get into places like Katsuya that he ventured out to last night. But probably not.
