When Larry King dies, he wants to be placed in a state of "suspendered" animation.
"I want to be frozen on the hope that they'll find whatever I died of and bring me back," he tells a table of celebrities on CNN Presents: A Larry King Special: Dinner with the Kings, airing Sunday from the former talk show host's dining room.
The announcement by the 78-year-old King momentarily stuns his dinner companions who include Russell Brand, Seth MacFarlane, Tyra Banks and Conan O'Brien.

They announced their reconciliation and now Larry King and wife Shawn Southwick want to make it official.
The CNN host, 76 and his wife, 50, filed petitions Wednesday in a Los Angeles court to dismiss their divorce case, almost three months after they initially filed the documents.
"A lot of new things are happening to us," King said in a statement, "and we are happy to be together as a family with our children."
King's lawyer Dennis Wasser told PEOPLE in April there was a "50-50 chance this divorce is not happening." A month later, the two, who have two sons together, said they owed "it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other."

After 25 years on the air, Larry King says it's time "to hang up my nightly suspenders."
The talk-show host, 76, said Tuesday he'll end his run on Larry King Live in the fall but will remain with CNN for occasional specials, "giving me more time for my wife and I to get to the kids' little league games."
"With this chapter closing I'm looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring," says King.
A replacement for King's 9 p.m. ET slot will be made "in the weeks ahead," according to CNN.

Larry King didn't mince words. This is a "difficult time," he says. He loves his wife "dearly" and he's certain they'll get through this "intact as a family."
His statement comes amid a report from police that his wife, Shawn Southwick King, was found unconscious two weeks ago in a Provo, Utah, home, with empty pill bottles strewn on her bed in a possible suicide attempt.
Southwick, 50, who has a history of painkiller addiction, was recently involved in divorce proceedings with King, 67, but they reconciled a week later. She was discovered May 28 by her father, Karl Engemann, who dialed 911.
"I slap her and I holler at her and she opens her eyes half way and puts them back down again," Engemann tells the emergency operator.

Looks like their differences weren't so irreconcilable after all.
After both citing that reason in filing separate divorce papers last month, Larry King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King, have reconciled and halted their separation.
"We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family. That is all that matters to us," the couple said in a joint statement, according to Reuters. "We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other. We want to thank our friends for their loyal love and support – for being there for us."
The CNN host, 76, and his singer wife, 50, have two children together: Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9.

Larry King's seventh marriage may not be over after all.
"There's a 50-50 chance this divorce is not happening," King's lawyer Dennis Wasser tells PEOPLE. "His focus is on the best interest of his children. It's not clear to me which way he's going to turn on this issue."
The revelation comes as King and his wife Shawn attended counseling Monday. In a separate statement, Wasser says, "It was decided that there will be no divorce proceedings for two weeks as several issues need to be discussed and resolved."

Between photos of Larry King and his estranged wife looking happy together and a report that they're in couple's counseling, could they be reconsidering their divorce?
Not as far as King's lawyer knows. "My most current information is that the divorce is proceeding," attorney Dennis Wasser tells PEOPLE.
The legendary CNN talk show host, 76, and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King, 50, each filed separately for divorce Wednesday after 12 ½ years of marriage.
But the next day, they were photographed embracing each other at their son's baseball game. Then TMZ reported the pair had agreed to go to therapy to try save their marriage.

Larry King is getting a divorce – for the seventh time.
The legendary talk show host filed papers Wednesday in Los Angeles court to end his marriage to Shawn Southwick King, who filed her own divorce papers the same day.
King's spokesperson Howard Rubenstein, tells PEOPLE, "His major concern is the welfare of his children, and beyond that he's not going to comment about the divorce."
King's attorney Dennis Wasser tells PEOPLE his client "would like to do [these proceedings] amicably."
In his divorce filing, the TV host is seeking shared custody of their two sons, Cannon, 9, and Chance, 11. He lists the couple's separation date as April 13 and is also asking the court to deny his wife any spousal support. Southwick King, a singer and infomercial host, is seeking sole custody of the kids with visitation for King, plus spousal support.

While the brand new movie Paranormal Activity is, er, knocking 'em dead at the box office, other ghostly spirits have been haunting us for centuries – and not all of them should be welcomed with open arms, according to experts.
Appearing on a special Halloween edition of CNN's Larry King Live Friday, a host of ghosthunters, paranormal activists and psychics – as well as ghost victim Joan Rivers and Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd and his séance authority father, Peter Aykroyd – debunked the disbelievers, often with jaw-dropping stories.
Rivers delivered a seriously convincing account about how a malicious spirit was haunting her New York apartment – keeping the place cold, causing havoc with the electrical power and scaring her dogs from entering the residence. When she told her elevator man what was going on, he said, "Sounds like Mrs. Spencer [the former occupant] is back."
"I used to say, this is stupid, this is nonsense," Rivers said of her unseen but clearly felt visitor. Then, "at one point, you cannot say this anymore. Something is going on here."
