    Larry King and His Queen Put Divorce on Hold

    Could seven be Larry King's lucky number after all?

    Divorce proceedings between the 76-year-old talk-show host and wife Shawn Southwick have been suspended for the time being, King's attorney, Dennis Wasser, tells E! News.

    "Larry and Shawn met with a counselor today," Wasser said. "It was decided that there will be no divorce activity for two weeks, as several issues need to be discussed and resolved."

    He had nothing further to say about said "issues."

    So does this mean that King and his seventh bride (though he's swapped vows eight times, twice with the same woman) might make it after all?

    "I'm going to [let] everything stand the way it is," Wasser said when asked if he was close to withdrawing King's divorce petition.

    King and then, moments later, Southwick filed dueling petitions last week after 12 1/2 years of marriage. King asked for joint custody of their 9- and 11-year-old sons, while Southwick wanted primary physical custody.

    But though they were divided on the issue of custody, the boys brought the couple together this weekend. The proud parents were spotted walking arm-in-arm Sunday at one of their boy's Little League game.
