Schwarzenegger Split: Maria Shriver Headed for her OWN Show!

Filed under : Celebrity News

Maria Shriver is very angry with her estranged husband, the actor turned politician, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Shriver was once a top journalist but she gave up the career she loved when Schwarzenegger became governor of California. Since then, it seems she has been “very angry at him because he hasn’t sacrificed anything for her,” or so a source close to the former couple says.

Shriver had to quit her job as a journalist at NBC News when Schwarzenegger became governor because it became a conflict of interest. That was in 2004 and friends say Maria has never gotten over it.

She may have become First Lady of California through Schwarzenegger, but it wasn’t a job she picked. She apparently missed her career that she chose. She had expected to be allowed to remain as a journalist after Arnie’s election as Governor. She thought she could just not cover stories related to him. But that did not prove possible.

Maria was said to be devastated at losing her journalist’s career. But now she may be getting it back.

Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, one of Shriver’s BFFs, has already approached the former First Lady of California to appear on OWN, Oprah’s cable network. The two have known each other for years, starting out together on their careers in journalism.

But Oprah has competition. Maria is said to be getting tons of offers from the major networks. With her children all grown (the youngest is 15 now) there is nothing to keep her out of journalism now.

Are you keen to see Maria Shriver back in her journalist’s role? Were you a fan of hers back in her NBC days?

    I agree with Lia. Women should not be asked or expected to give up their identities or careers for a man. However many years they spent together is too long to live without something you dearly love. But Oprah’s not the answer; Maria can do better. She’s a good journalist. Get her a show on a real network.

    She should be mad at him for choosing to cheat on her since she stupidly gave up her career for him. Women should not give up their identities or careers for a man. Men should make the sacrifies for women. @ walek – Arnold should parent for a change and take some parental responsibility.
