It's Good to Be King

Not that he has the time to enjoy it, but talk titan Larry King just snapped up one of his biggest 'gets' yet: a $12 million Tuscan-style estate in Beverly Hills.

According to the Los Angeles Times Hot Property column, the one get that's eluded him for years had been a new house in his neighborhood. Ironically, it took just two days for wife Shawn Southwick to find a regal new place. It's got seven bedrooms and nine thrones (bathrooms), and was renovated recently with roof tiling from a 200-year-old monastery -- by none other than the wife of actor Sidney Poitier.

Life is good for the 73-year-old King.
