In an emotional interview, published on Tuesday, the 59-year-old told the DailyMailTV that she "was crushed" by the news.
"I had no idea that this was coming, it hurt yeah. I was totally blindsided,” Shawn revealed.
In August, the 85-year-old broadcaster filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court, according to TMZ, while his attorney confirmed the news to People magazine. The couple, who wed in 1997, have two sons, 20-year-old Chance and 19-year-old Cannon.
"I'm sad, I never expected to be at this place in my life, in our lives and have this happen in such a public way," Shawn -- who added that she hasn't been served any legal paperwork yet -- explained. "I don't think, again I'm not in Larry's head, I refuse to believe that he intended to humiliate me. It's strange, I can't quite wrap my head around it, but it is what it is... it hurts."
