In an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV back in September, Shawn broke down in tears about the bombshell divorce filing, saying: 'I was crushed, I had no idea that this was coming, it hurt yeah. I was totally blindsided.

'He's going through a lot right now... his health issues, that can really shake you to your core, it shook me to my core to see him so vulnerable and he doesn't remember two solid weeks of time. It's life, it's real, it's not fun.'

On Tuesday, King waited for a valet to bring his black Bentley around. The famed host got help from both his nurse and the parking staff to get inside the vehicle. 

A handicap placard hung from the rear view mirror.

The Palm attracts a 'who's who' in downtown 90210. It's the restaurant where the Real Housewives cast joined together to throw host Andy Cohen a baby shower earlier this year.

Famous fans of The Palm include Justin Bieber, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Matt Damon, the Hilton family, Ron Howard and more.

'It's a power lunch and dinner spot,' the insider said. 'It's the place to be if you want to rub elbows with celebrities and media moguls. Larry seemed to enjoy being recognized by the patrons.'

The 'devastated' former actress and singer told DailyMailTV in September that she stills loves Larry, who she has been married to for the past 22 years, and doesn't want to paint the broadcast legend as a 'villain', as she hints that his decision may be connected with the star's health scare earlier this year

King has been married to Shawn for 22 years and have two sons together, Chance, 20 and Cannon, 19. 

They shared a stunning $17 million house in Beverly Hills, which is now listed for sale.

Bizarrely, Shawn insists there wasn't any signs of trouble in the marriage leading up to the divorce filing.

And she was quick to deny claims that Larry was furious with her after she tried to meddle with his will while he was seriously ill in the hospital.

Reports revealed Larry 'hit the roof' after allegedly learning Shawn tried to interfere with his estate - potentially negatively impacting the inheritance of their two sons.

It was also reported that it was the two boys - who live with Shawn at the family's Beverly Hills home - who urged their dad to file for divorce.

But Shawn branded the claims 'ludicrous' and joked: 'No, but they could be lying to me.'

She continued, hardening her tone: 'They've been raised in the entertainment business, in the public eye, so they've been around it, but they've never been the subject of the headlines.

'And it was very upsetting to them to have things attributed to them that were not true and so much so that they went to their social media platforms and set the record straight, but initially it was really hard on them.

'They had seen some of the headlines and were frantic to call me to make sure that I knew that they never did or never would say anything like that.

'It brought us very close together and brought clarity and made a bad thing a good thing.' 

Shawn, Larry's seventh wife, also lifted the lid on the 'terrifying' moment a doctor told her that the ailing King didn't have long to live.

King has had numerous health issues, including a heart attack, prostate and lung cancer, and type two diabetes. 

In April of this year he suffered an angina, which mimics a heart attack. 

'He's going through a lot right now' Shawn said back in September, 'his health issues, that can really shake you to the core to see him so vulnerable and he doesn't remember two solid weeks of time. It's life, it's real and it's not fun.'
