Larry King Previews His 'Dinner With the Kings' CNN Special (VIDEO)

When Larry King's CNN show ended last year, he entered into semi-retirement with a deal to create four specials per year for the network. Friday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) King previewed his final special of 2011, 'Dinner with the Kings,' which airs this Sunday. His dinner guests will be Conan O'Brien, Russell Brand, Tyra Banks and Shaquille O'Neal, among others.

King was struck with the idea for the special about a year-and-a-half ago when he assembled a disparate group of celebrities together for a dinner party: Barry Bonds, Ryan Seacrest and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim were all in attendance. No one knew each other, but everyone got along. Thus, 'Dinner with the Kings' was born.

King previewed Sunday's surprisingly emotional emotional dinner party. "There were lots of emotions on the show, lots of admissions of insecurity. It was a very surprising thing." In fact, in the middle of the dinner, King said Russell Brand left the table. "He went upstairs and went into my wife's dresser and he brought down a pair of panties and a bra."

Is the Kings plural as in Larry and his attention grabbing wife? The wife should just let this old man retire.
