Hands Off, Maria Shriver!

10/13/2009 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria Maria, cell phone cheatah! It appears Maria Shriver broke the law prohibiting driving under the influence of a cell phone -- a law her hubby supported and signed into law last year.

Kaleefornia Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
apparently can't lay down the law in his own home. Maria was photographed twice driving her car while holding her cell phone -- most recently last Sunday in Los Angeles.

Had Shriver been busted, she would have owed the bankrupt state of California $20 plus fees for the first offense.... $50 plus fees for the second. BTW, we need every dime we can get.

We called the Guv's office and Maria's rep yesterday -- radio silence.

Arnold -- She Just Doesn't Listen!!!

Dear Gov. Schwarzenegger,

While you were Twittering a few minutes ago about the "swift action" coming to Maria, your scofflaw wife was at it again -- jawing away on a handheld cell phone while driving in Brentwood.

Maria Shriver: Click to watch
But it gets worse ... while Maria was illegally yappin' away (the third time she's been photographed doin' it) she saw our cameraman catching the illegal activity on tape -- and that's when she dropped the phone in an attempt to cover it up! The tape does not lie....

Arnold, the fines are bad enough -- but do you have any idea what your Verizon bill is gonna look like?

Arnold: My Wife's in Trouble Now!

Maria Shriver's in hot water....

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has finally caught wind of his wife's illegal -- and habitual -- cell phone antics ... and now he's finally gonna do something about it!

Ahnald just went on Twitter and dropped the following note to Harvey Levin:

"Thanks for bringing her violations to my attention. There's going to be swift action."

Those Democrats -- they never learn.... right Arnold?

Jon Gosselin Ordered to Return $180,000

Jon Gosselin has been ordered to return $180,000 in marital funds, which were removed in violation of an arbitrator's order.

According to Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date."

Jon is required to repay the loot by October 26 -- the next hearing -- or appear before the judge for a contempt proceeding.

The judge also ordered Kate to provide an accounting of past expenses -- also due by Oct. 26.

Kate says, "As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children. Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues."

Oprah in Texas -- Weiner Takes All

The wait is over ... media icon and weight loss guru Oprah Winfrey just announced her latest breakthrough diet -- corn dogs smothered in mustard.


Oprah and BFF Gayle King took a road trip to the Texas State Fair in Dallas yesterday to tape a special show -- which will air later this fall -- and based on the pictures we got of Oprah in a cowboy hat chowing down on a corn dog, she completely gave up on the traditional low-fat approach to dieting -- at least temporarily.

Our fair source claims Oprah also had herself a little of the fair's famous deep fried butter. No joke ... but so far, no confirmation on the battered butter from O's peeps.

Still, that's the kind of diet we can wrap our arms around.

UPDATE: It's confirmed -- Oprah ate the fried butter! In fact, she called it "the best treat of the fair."

That cell phone law is so retarded. What about all the other people who drive around with their dumb animals on their laps? I think that is just as, or more dangerous than talking on your cell phone while driving.

As for the Fool who complained about Arnie: Governors as well as Presidents of the U.S. do not enact Legislation. This is why they refer to them as the Executive branch. Congress and the State Legislature are the legislative branch because they enact or Legislate. One of the reasons that California has a problem is because it takes 2/3 of the Legislature to pass a Budget as opposed to to to other States which require a 50% + 1 vote. This can only be changed by changing the State Constitution of Californiaand the Morons that were elected by the people in California cant agree on a Budget. Another problem is the 8 Billion a year that is paid for the Emergency Medical treatment of Illegal Aliens in California. The people in California voted to deny it but it was over turned because the Democrats in Congress passed a Federal Law that allowed them to get it. This is also why the Illegals will get free Health care even though it is denied in it. The Liberals will just go to court and over turn it. Obama knows this because he taught Constitutional Law at Columbia University. The Kennedys are the "Elite" .This is evidenced by the fact that when JFK was elected President and his Senate Seat became vacant and his Brother Ted was only twenty eight and the minimum age for the U.S.Senate was thirty the then Governor of Massachusetts appointed somebody who agreed to hold it for Ted until he turned thirty. Massachussets changed the Law when Kerry ran for President and the then Governor of Mass was the Republican Romney and the Kennedys were afraid that if Kerry won that a Republican would be appointed so it was changed by the State legislature to a Special Election. Afew months ago when TED died and they didnt want to wait for a Special election they changed the Law again so they could fill his Senate seat temporarily until they could elect who they wanted in the Special Election in January. The Morons love their Royalty and their Kennedys and are willing to keep electing people who will allow this Royalty to continue in Office. So dont criticize Maria. She is only using her special elite powers granted to her by the people and she doesnt have to obey the rules as do Joe Sixpack and the other little people.

didnt you people know...the laws dont apply to chicken neck. and to the woman who questioned if she is driving, yes that is an automobile, yes,she is behind the wheel,so remember the saying if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.

lets face it! america makes to many laws not even the one who makes them follows it. i've also seen police offices on cell phone while driving and they should write themselve a ticket.

immagine if all police officers give tickets to all (everyone) that disobay the laws all that money can go to good use. if no one follows the law, why make one? that does not make sence to me...

Hey Orcha, I have a word of advice for you, STAY OUT OF OUR STATE! I was wondering why we had around a 5.5 earthquake here in Austin the other day, it was Oprah Winfrey walking to the food stand.

It seems to me that Maria Schwarz. would have a newer and smaller cell phone. I am not sure that it is her either.

We the people should take photos or have a website for photos of people in west hollywood who don't pick up their dog's you know what!!! Why can't I give a ticket to each one of them for fifty bucks! Especially if I have a photo. Will someone please make a website and I will send some photos!! If the public was allowed to give a ticket, I think the money would help keep the low budget from piling up. Hey! Then TMZ could also give tickets to the Marias' who use a cell phone while driving. But don't edit the background to make it look like someone is driving.

In reality, Maria is a Kennedy. Throughout the Kennedy's existence in America they have always been above the law!

John Gosselin: I actually feel kinda sorry for him. Not only is he getting dragged through the mud by the media, but his own soon-to-be-ex-wife is right there driving the bandwagon. He just can't catch a break.
