Shawn King overdosed on prescription pills after her separation-then-reconciliation with husband Larry King, reports Radar Online. In a 911 call on May 28, her father, Karl Engemann, said he found Shawn "out of it" at her home in Provo, Utah: "I don't think she did it on purpose or anything, but she may have overmedicated. ...It wouldn't be suicidal." Larry King released a statement Wednesday in response to the news: "I am extremely supportive of Shawn. ...We shall go through this difficult time intact as a family."

In another case of life imitating art there was an incredible opening segment on the most recent "Breaking Bad" which could be seen as almost an homage to this woman. The actress looked like her clone. Uncanny!

Word in Hollywood is that Southwick filmed the scenes believing they were part of a kind of "scenes from a marriage" montage. When the segment aired she was supposedly outraged that the character as portrayed was "unkempt" and had not been careful about getting her roots touched up.
She was allegedly overheard in a Beverly Hills restaurant ranting that everyone in America would think she had a second rate colorist.

Am I a cynic or could all of this be part of a ratings ploy. Southwick apparently did not take screen credit for the "Breaking Bad" episode.
