Schwarzenegger and Shriver Pack It In
In their 25 years of marriage, the pair managed to make things work despite holding staunch opposing political views ("he's a Republican with a soft spot for Richard Nixon; her family was a pillar in the nation's Democratic establishment"), Arnie and Maria have called it a day. See how I refrained from using the term 'terminated'? You're welcome.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Shriver has moved out of the couple's mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles, and they have been living apart for the past couple of weeks. In a statement to the paper, the couple - who married in 1986 - said: "This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. 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 centre 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."
After leaving office, Schwarzenegger, 63, announced he wanted to return to making movies and he has already agreed to star in another movie in the Terminator series. This probably didn't go down well. Since Schwarzenegger left office, it had seemed as though the two were living separate lives. Shriver has worked on her women's empowerment website, guest-edited an issue of Oprah Winfrey's magazine and promoted causes near to her heart, such as Alzheimer's research. She struggled with the death of her father, Sargent Shriver, in January, and took her son Patrick and some of his friends on an East Coast college tour in April.
Sooooo, it looks like the prospects of another Terminator movie was the final nail for Maria. And there we thought it would've been the knife brandishing broadcast from two years back. Fancy making a sophisticated woman get dreads at her age.
