He was hoping that his eighth go-around at marriage would be a charm, but, unfortunately, it appears that it will end up the same as his prevoius seven other unions.  TMZ is reporting that legendary CNN newsman Larry King has filed for divorce from his wife, Shawn Southwick.  King, who is 76, and Southwick, who is 50, were married in 1997 and have two children together.  Sources have told TMZ that the marriage fell apart due to allegations of infidelity, as Southwick is accusing King of having an affair with one of her relatives.  Southwick filed her own papers for the divorce minutes after King did, and both are citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
