Do you believe in ghosts? What scares you? How are you celebrating Halloween? We want to know!!! Larry shares his personal Halloween memories with us...
1. LKL BLOG: What is your favorite Halloween memory?
LARRY KING: Running around to apartment houses, sticking pins into all the buttons ringing the bells and running away - so that people hear bells ringing and don’t know what to do to get people into their room. It was a riot. If I could explain it better, I’d do it!
2. LKL BLOG: What is your favorite scary movie?
LARRY KING: “Psycho.” If “Psycho” doesn’t scare you… In fact I saw Psycho and didn’t take a shower for two and a half years.
3. LKL BLOG: Favorite Halloween candy?
LARRY KING: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The perfect candy. Number two: Mounds.
4. LKL BLOG: What is your favorite Halloween costume?
LARRY KING: My kid’s favorite was two years ago when they dressed up as me. They had masks from New York. A guy made a Larry King mask and they wore the masks and went around with suspenders. And more people tricked them, rather than treated them. That shows you about my popularity…
5. LKL BLOG: What about the favorite costume you’ve worn?
LARRY KING: I went with my ex-wife, Sharon, we went as Oreo Cookies. We wore big black things around the middle and we were attached at the hip.
6. LKL BLOG: Do you believe in ghosts? Any ghost sightings or experiences?
LARRY KING: I’m open to anything. I don’t believe, I don’t disbelieve. I’m curious about them. I’ve never seen a ghost. The only adventure I’ve had was with a poltergeist, that’s a common ghost, who for a series of times in a Miami grocery store would, in the middle of the night, throw everything on the floor. Cereals—everything the grocery store sold, they would find on the floor and no one was there all night. They’d come back the next night and it would be all on the floor in the morning. One night they stayed all night and nothing happened. And then they didn’t stay and it happened again. Poltergeists are comic ghosts who have fun.
7. LKL BLOG: What scares you?
LARRY KING: Death. Or as Woody Allen said, I’m not really afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.
