LOS ANGELES -- CNN host Larry King's wife was rushed to the hospital last month after she reportedly overdosed on pills.

Shawn Southwick, 50, apparently overmedicated and was found unconscious by her father on May 29 at her Provo, Utah home.

Radar Online has obtained a 911 call in which Southwick's father, Karl Engermann, tells the dispatcher, "I can't wake her up."

"She may have overmedicated," he tells the 911 operator.

Prayers for her. If I had to wake up next to Larry King every morning, I would “over-medicate” myself too.

Hope she gets better.

I can only imagine the amount of medication necessary to consummate such a relationship would make it easy to “over-medicate”.

And the strangest thing of all. Larry King hasn’t looked this good in ages.

That is a cruel and small minded comment to make.

She should poison him instead.;)

Sounds like she couldn't stand look at the old fart any more..I am sure when she married this old man she figured he had just a few more days weeks to live, but he fooled her..With all the messing around with other men I wonder if those kids they have are really Old Larry's..Did he think to check the DNA..

Larry King leaked oil on his wife and she was unresponsive after over medicating.
