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

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."

I too am upset with people that use one hand to hold a cell phone while driving....... It has nothing to do with using one hand to hold the phone, I only drive with one hand.... It's the way they can't drive while holding that darn phone. They drive like their drunk or on drugs. I have a cell phone but, I also have OnStar. I always tell people to call my home first, my OnStar second and my cell phone last.... When you have OnStar, you only have to press the button on your rear view mirror to make or recieve a call all hands free.......... I don't understand why Maria doesn't have OnStar, or maybe, rather NOT want to use it.... In any case,She is NOT only breaking the LAW, but putting people including herself in danger!!!!!..... I have had a cell phone for more than twenty years, and was in business all that time.... I don't know what the big attraction is to be constantly on a cell phone???? In the store, in the car,in the doctors office,in the restroom,in the eatery and in the bedroom where you have a landline phone.....

And for Jon & Kate ... Kate is a money grubbing parasite, that wants it all.... I mean, I am always for the woman... But her phoney act at the gas station was a big fat farce,,, You seen she came up with another credit card didn't you???? She charged that one credit card to the hilt purposely to use it in front of the cameras... She is a JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the one that said: He or She didn't know if she was at a stop or parked at the time the picture was taken.... If you look at her in the red car.... You can clealy see she was driving at that time by the way the picture came out... The other times is questionable??? Yet, maybe they just got a better picture of her in the act when she stopped for a light or stop sign????????

To: die shrew,

Can you read? $180,000 is somewhere near $230,000. In the article it says that she has to provide proof of how she spent $55,000,on bills, add 180 and 55 you moron. She probably made an accounting error as to how much she spent on taking care of 8 children dumbo. He still violated a court order which no one seems to want to mention and it was not a minor oversite.If a judge tells you not to touch the money unless certain conditions are met then that is what you do. Maybe Kate spent the $55,000 on herself we don't know but it is a possibility that as she said it was spent on bills and the kids, but what about Jon can you honestly say that you believe he took $180,000 for the kids or to spend whoring around as he has been doinfg?

Maria Shriver should (but won't) get a ticket, and pay it, like any
other "typical" California citizen! It isn't a law here in Mass yet
but I seriously do NOT drive and talk on my cell phone. I just had too many close calls and realized it isn't worth it! If I need to answer a call while driving, I have a blue tooth and I also have a speaker-phone feature, which many newer cell phones have installed in them, these days. But of course it doesn't matter b/c like someone else said, Maria is a Kennedy and remember, no matter what kind of things they do, whether it's rape, murder, kidnapping, DUI,
etc. they WILL ALWAYS GET OFF B/C OF WHO THEY ARE! It's so sad and
not fair!

You people are forgetting that she is a member of the Kennedy Clan. When you're a member of the Kennedy Clan rules and laws do not apply, You are above the Law.
