Sources tell TMZ ... Kaufman's already been in touch with Maria's attorney, Laura Wasser -- and we're told they are "moving forward" with divorce negotiations.

Kaufman and Wasser have gone head-to-head on other high profile celebrity splits -- and both specialize in something Arnold and Maria value right now ... keeping divorce settlements hush hush.

Better get that attorney to salvage what little bit of life Arnold will have left after Maria takes him to the cleaners AND finally kicks his butt to the curb.

Maria's heart was never in that marriage. She just wanted to play the KENNEDY role of First Lady of California.

But she got played - by the maid. How humiliating!

Oh well...time for both of them to move on. If Arnold wants to continue to play the field, he should stay single.

@Love Star Wars
Actually Maria didn't want him to run for governor in the first place. That tidbit was posted on another site.

Arnold will probably give her whatever she asks for. He wouldn;t want her going public and getting anymore sympathy than she already has. Tigers wife went away quietly sure he gave her whatever she ask for. And she deserved it.

Pretty ironic; he buys off the maid with a house and early retirement, probably bought off other people he had sexual relations with, but hires a lawyer to fight his long-suffering wife.

You know we keep hearing such news from the celebrity world, women should have evolved an understanding by now that men can never be satisfied with one woman ... no matter how hard a man tries...its just not his nature...his instincts dictate him to spread his seeds as much and as far as possible. What benefits apart from monetary would this divorce bring Arnold's wife? Any man will have sex with a woman given the chance...he needs no reason...there is no question of loyalty...thats just crap built up by people. Loyalty is a man loving his wife, ahving a family with her...providing for the family and not abandoning his family...ahh crap...words are not enough to explain this.

@Mushtaq you are an idiot. Just because YOU are a desperate sleaze (like Ahnie), you think ALL men are - to make yourself feel better. But it's just not true.

I know many men who are PICKY and who are disgusted by the thought of even touching certain women. Getting bored with your long term partner is one thing - and happens to both sexes - people get bored with each other. But saying that ALL men want to "spread their seed" by screwing any Lindsay, Paris and Kim is false.

I know SO many men that would never sleep with those skanks, for e.g. (too slutty & STD infested). I know SO many other men who would never even think of sleeping with Patty or Maria (too ugly). The concept of STANDARDS you don't understand - because you don't have them...words are not enough to explain this.

Let me just say that the natural HUMAN INCLINATION is to trade up - for both men and women. But not everyone does so. Just like the NATURAL INCLINATION is to kill someone who you hate. But not everyone does this. You need to get an education. You need to read the book "The Brain that Changes Itself" by Norman Doidge. You're talking out of your ass and repeating dumbly what you have heard for years said by others - without doing any critical thinking for yoursel. Without reading up on current research.

Poor Maria - the long suffering empowered doormat. My heart bleeds.

When's Maria organizing the next woman empowerment conference where she preaches that women become exactly like her?
