Maria Shriver Hires Mega-Divorce Lawyer

5/19/2011 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria Shriver has hired one of the toughest divorce lawyers around, but she hasn't pulled the trigger on ending her marriage.

Sources connected with Maria tell TMZ ... she's hired disso-queen Laura Wasser, who has repped just about everyone in Hollywood, including Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Christina Aguilera.

As TMZ first reported, Maria has been miserable in her marriage for several years and wanted out.  We're told Maria hired Laura significantly before the news of Arnold Schwarzenegger's baby mama broke, but Maria has been conflicted over whether to file for divorce -- partly because Arnold still has strong emotional influence over her and he wants her back.

Her lawyer is cute. Maria better keep her away from Arnold. I'm still waiting for Gloria Allred to come out with more baby mamas. I have no doubt she is working on it tirelessly.

Stupid stupid Maria!

Her problem is that she does not know how to be a real woman
whereas the maid does.

A real women would run for the hills from this pig.

How much more betrayal does she need?

HMMMM    

Maria, once the zipper goes down, you KNOW it will never go up again. He negated any pre-nup hopefully, bring him to his knees. Divorce the jerk and move on. You and your kids would be better off without him and his psycho.

I find it so difficult to believe now that more info is coming out that Maria knew nothing. How stupid could she have been? It is horrible that she and this woman were pregnant at the same time. How degrading!! They gave birth weeks apart. Arnold must have been so proud of himself!!! Move on Maria or the world will really think you are a spinelss woman for sure!
