Maria Shriver: Divorce Attorney Hired

Maria Shriver goes on a walk with some pals on Saturday (May 21) in Malibu, Calif.

The 55-year-old estranged wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger has reportedly hired prominent family law attorney Laura Wasser.

Maria hasn’t decided yet if she wants to end her marriage,” a source told People.

Last week, Arnold admitted that he fathered a child with a longtime member of the couple’s household staff more than a decade ago.

“There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry,” the former governor, 53, previously said in a statement.

FYI: Maria is wearing Jewelry for a Cause‘s diamond Buddha necklace for the Alzheimer’s Association.

    I bet when she found out, Maria hit Arnold in the head with a telephone and then kicked him in the ribs calling him a pig and a bastard like Jamie Lee Curtis did to him in True Lies (1994).

    SHAME ON YOU JARED!!!!!!!! Maria asked for privacy during this painful time; what is the point of posting pictures of Maria looking sad and in pain? for the rest of the world to ogle and feel smug about??? …. such an invasion of her privacy!!! and disrespect for her feelings and request! It is bad enough that you post endless pictures of people doing the dullest things like buying a bl***y coffee whatever, but to do this is really WAY WAY uncool!!! Get a grip, Jared and try and show SOME class! Our world has become SO morally and spiritually bankrupt!!!

    If they want privacy while are the children on Twitter talking about it.

    Maybe it’s for the best…always thought they were a strange couple. He was only interested in her status as a part of the Kennedys and her money. He’s always been a pig.

  • Annie

    TMZ is reporting that it was actually Maria who indirectly arranged for this to be leaked. If that’s true then go Maria! Maybe she’ll finally break the curse the Kennedy women have for sweeping men’s piggish behaviour under the carpet.

    Maria has always been far too good for him anyway. The reason Arnold kept up the affair with Mildred for all these years is probably because behind all his wealth and outer status Mildred is more on his level.

    My heart goes out to all the Schwarzenegger children including the out- of -wedlock son.

    I agree with BOSTON61, she must have known, the boy looks too much like Arnold, now she is making out she had no idea , because it makes her look like a fool when she called the women that complaint about him liars. I feel for the children, all of them, this should have been done quietly for the childrens sake,

  • ellie’

    I guess we will find out if Maria knew or not..you have such trust in a marriage..Maria was humiliated Jennifer was humiliated..work on your marriages make it sacred,,,Hallie what she put out on her daughters father..I have no respect for her either.. I could go on & on who has been humiliated in front of the world..

    Yes I did go with a married man when I was 21..I was divorced..I knew how wrong it was so I broke it off….My husband now left his wife 3 months later ..I still wouldn’t go back to him until I knew it was completely over…My husband and I had marital problems throughout the years. we work on it..and we made it through therapy..I’m happy to say it worked out…..It has been now 30ty yrs…but as far as myself I wasn’t exploited all over the world to be humiliated …Shame on any man or women who does this to there mate…and in our times now..marrigages doesn’t seem important to most people….

    I don’t think Maria knew about most of this. By all accounts she’s devestated.

  • Narcissus=Arnold

    Arnold =Narcissus – in Greek mythology is a hero, renowned for his beauty. He is exceptionally cruel, in that he disdains those who love him. As divine punishment he falls in love with a reflection in a pool, not realizing it is his own, and perishes there, not being able to leave the beauty of his own reflection.

    •Approximately 1% of the population is narcissistic.
    •75% of narcissists are men.
    •Narcissism is a psychological condition characterized by self-preoccupation, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem.
    •A narcissist sees his life as a movie or dramatic story in which he has the starring role. He creates a character, and assimilates the emotions of that character.
    ••They are extremely vain.
    •They are often very outgoing, with a “larger than life” personality. They are great fun in social situations, which makes them popular.
    ••They seek partners who make them look and feel powerful, special, admired, attractive, and important.
    •They are indifferent to the core qualities of healthy relationships: real love, caring, commitment and loyalty.
    •Narcissists exhibit the same qualities at work and among friends, but their true character is more obvious in romantic relationships, because there are fewer rules for how to behave, and because someone who has fallen for a narcissist will often put up with a great deal that others would not tolerate.
    •Narcissists don’t feel guilt, based on an objective right and wrong. They feel shame, based on exposure. When they get caught, their answer is always the same: “Wait, that’s not really who I am…”
    •Narcissists regard relationships as interchangeable. If you do not fuel the needed status and self-esteem, he will quickly find another relationship that is more rewarding

    A narcissist values a relationship only if he believes it makes him look and feel superior.
    The only way to make a narcissist understand personal rejection is to … humiliating him by failing to give him the starring role, or any role, is the only way to cause real injury to a narcissist.

    @Narcissus=Arnold: TMZ said ” As for Arnold, our sources say he’s upset Maria was talking to her friends about the scandal. Arnold and his people know the story leaked through Maria’s camp.” – Maria IS humiliating him by exposure.
