Larry King's taking a break. But the show ain't over yet, folks.

Although we're past the two-week stay the CNN host and wife Shawn placed on their divorce proceedings back on April 19, King's attorney tells E! News that the couple will wait a little longer to decide the fate of their 12-year marriage.

"The hold has been continued until the middle of next week," lawyer Dennis Wasser said. "Stay tuned."

Indeed, Mr. Suspenders and his estranged missus (née Shawn Southwick) have been meeting with a marriage counselor in hopes of patching things up.

They filed for divorce in dueling petitions April 14 amid allegations that he had an affair with Shawn's sister, while she supposedly had been seeing their kids' former Beverly Hills Little League coach. 

The couple, who are now living in separate residences, swapped vows in 1997and have two children together.
