Hector Penate: Shawn Southwick Accused Of Cheating On Larry King With Baseball Coach (PHOTOS)

Larry King and wife Shawn Southwick have both filed for divorce. But there were signs of trouble in the marriage even in 2008, when the National Enquirer reported that King caught Southwick cheating with Hector Penate.


Radar Online reports that Penate coached the baseball team of one of their sons. He has also had a modest, if unsuccessful, career as an actor.

From the Enquirer in 2008:

Willowy blonde beauty Shawn King, 48, has been carrying on a steamy year-long extramarital affair right under Larry's nose with hunky Hector Penate, 29, a B-list actor, according to multiple sources.

The ENQUIRER blockbuster investigation uncovered that Shawn and Hector were so brazen in their adulterous tryst they even made love on the 74 year-old talk show host's desk at home.
