Larry King and wife No. 7 call off their divorce

Kings-web Divorce? What divorce? Larry King and wife Shawn Southwick on Tuesday called off the divorce they each filed for in mid-April, Reuters reports.

"We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family. That is all that matters to us," the couple said in a joint statement.

"We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other. We want to thank our friends for their loyal love and support -- for being there for us."

Spokesman Howard Rubenstein told Reuters that King has moved back home, confirming TMZ's Monday report that the 76-year-old had left the hotel where he'd been staying.

The host of CNN's "Larry King Live" has been married to seven women, remarrying one of them after a split. He and Shawn, 50, who have two kids together, cited irreconcilable differences in filing for what would have been King's eighth divorce.

At least one of those "differences," incidentally, might have had a first and last name.
