Maria Shriver Shops for L.A. Condos

5/21/2011 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria Shriver was quietly looking at pricey L.A. condos back in January ... months before the Arnold Schwarzenegger baby scandal broke ... TMZ has learned.

What's especially interesting about this ... it looks like Arnold told Maria about Mildred Patty Baena immediately after he left the governor's office on January 3.

Sources say Maria and her broker looked at a condo at The Carlyle on Wilshire, a pricey condo building near UCLA.  Among the residents -- Bruce Willis, Sofia Vergara, Paul Anka, Donna Summer and Matt Kemp.

Our sources say Maria didn't like the units.  We're told she looked at several penthouse units, which are priced between $10 - $14 million (they rent out for around $30,000 a month).  She also looked at a few 3-bedroom condos, which were listed between $4 - $7 million (they rent out at around $17,000 a month).

We're told Maria felt the building was too exposed to the paparazzi.

Maria is still on the hunt for a place.

So those two are, in effect, still living under the same roof? No naughty makeup sex Maria...it only leads you down that same broken path and you know they NEVER change.

Get rid of the maid, the bed, and the guy in that order.
Live well. Which means stay where you are and enjoy dating.
There are plenty of real men - not bad boys to choose from.

Of course the problem with all true "bad boys" is they are emotionally stunted and never express an interest in growing up to become a real men.

But you can have it both ways. Stay where you are, and buy a get-a-way place for yourself.

Long past time for you to be good to yourself, (which would also be a good role model for everyone.)

Good luck Maria!

"Maria didn't like the units" $10 - $14 million condos were not good enough for her.

Give me a break! How entitled this Kennedy is!

Who the F--K does she think she is?

Who would want to continue to live in the home where your husband not only had an affair but continued to have that woman in the same household for 14 more years. The house represents nothing but lies and pain!! Maria will find a real home where she can be happy with her children.

Most States law require that if a woman is married and give birth regardless of whose child it is the man she is married to at the time of birth is listed on the certificate. If she refuses to give her husbands name then, the certificate will read patient refused information. This is the way States protect children from being bastards due to the mother's wrong doing during marriage.

I am sure that MSS is trying to downsize and does not want to have a lot of household staff around her and her children.

@POOKIE just because it has a high price tag doesn't mean u have to like it, maybe she felt it wasn't worth the price. I think the Kennedys deserve a little entitlement more than the Royals in England, that family has suffered plenty!

Arnold had a pretty eventful end of office. Reduce the sentence of a murderer, then drop the baby news on your wife of 25 years.

Maria should've stayed at her Brentwood home and have the ex-Governator move somewhere else (Austria??????).

@Pookie

You are so rude. Its hard to move from a HOME to a condo and she didn't like the exposure to the paparazzi. Translation SHE WANTS HER PRIVACY. The same one she enjoyed before this mess.

You're incredibly harsh, Maria's whole world has crumbled even if she was in major denial.

I'm with Cartman. Change the Brentwood locks. It's a much nicer neighbourhood and she'll feel less like a fish in a bowl. I don't care how rich you are, who'd want to live in such a condo?

I can not get over the shameless Baena doing the deed in the marital bed and yet smiling to Maria and interacting with her daily, even asking for love advice. I would not be surprised if it turns out that after one moment of weakness she had A. by the b***s and dictated him her wants. He went along for the fear of a scandal.
