Larry King raises $9 million for Haiti relief

Monday's celebrity-filled two-hour "Larry King Live" raised nearly $9 million for Haitian relief efforts, a show representative told Us magazine. Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul, John Mayer, Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Seacrest, Nicole Richie, Joel Madden and countless other stars participated in the event called "Haiti: How You Can Help." Both the Red Cross - which earned $5.6 million - and UNICEF - which brought in $3.2 million - kept their phone lines open after the show to handle additional calls. "To come here and see people call in from across the United States - it was awesome," Lopez, who worked the phones as viewers dialed in their donations to UNICEF and the American Red Cross, told the TV show "Extra."
