PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A spokesman for Larry King said Wednesday that the talk-show host's wife is recovering after an apparent prescription drug overdose last month in Utah.

Emergency medical workers were called to Shawn King's home in Provo on May 28. Her father dialed 911 after finding the 50-year-old woman in her bed, breathing but not responding when he tried to wake her, according to a transcript of the emergency call, which was released through an open-records request Wednesday.

In Utah, yet.

There will be some legal penalties for this, I reckon.

She probably had thoughts of another night listening to the King wheeze and then spending another day looking at those suspenders. Get me outta here.

Could have been worse. Like Kitty Dukakis gulping down hairspray. Of course, how else could she cope with being married to such a rodent.

When the EMS arrived, they probably had a difficult time figuring out which one of them needed medical attention, so hey hauled them both in.

Both

‘The pills made her feel so good that she continued taking them for more than 20 years, hiding them from Mr. Dukakis, and she eventually turned to alcohol. Her husband and other family members tried to stop her drinking and sent her to a series of drug-treatment and psychiatric centers, but when she was home, she imbibed whatever she could find: rubbing alcohol, Tylenol with codeine, nail polish remover and, as recently as this spring, a bottle of hair spray.’
