Daaaang! The Ex-Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver have SPLIT.
Now, think about the timing. Ahhnold is no longer the Governor of California. I’d say Maria probably stayed with his doofus ass only until his time was UP. Lest you have forgotten about all the (alleged?) groping the action star has been accused of, think about it now. Now he’s in talks for all kinds of movie roles once again, so Maria is outta there.
“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” the statement read. “After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.
“We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives.” We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. “We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”
The odd couple met back in 1977, when NBC’s Tom Brokaw introduced Maria to Schwarzenegger at a charity tennis tournament. The two married in 1986, and have four children.
With their marriage, the Republican Schwarzenegger entered one of the most storied Democratic dynasties in America; Shriver is the daughter of the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Hmmmm…I wonder if Maria will go back to her Kennedy roots.
Is anyone really shocked by this announcement?
