LORELAI: I’m a success, who’d have thought? … From rags to riches . . . I wonder why Larry King hasn’t called.
Larry King, born Lawrence Zeiger (1933-2021), award-winning television and radio host. A radio interviewer in the Miami area in the 1950s and ’60s, he gained prominence in 1978 as the host of The Larry King Show, an all-night nationwide call-in radio program. From 1985 to 2010 he hosted the nightly interview TV program, Larry King Live on CNN. He continued hosting TV interview shows until his death at the age of 87.
Lorelai hasn’t really gone from rags to riches … she’s gone from riches to rags to a moderately comfortable independent existence.
