Maria Shriver: Thanks For The Offers, but No Thanks

7/6/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with various broadcast and cable networks tell TMZ ... Maria Shriver has been deluged with offers to go back on the air, but she's turning them all down flat ... at least for now.

Maria has been getting offers to host talk shows, anchor news magazine shows and join news organizations, but she made it clear she does not want a time-consuming job that will take her away from her responsibilities as a mom. 

We're told all of the usual suspects on broadcast and cable are trying to snag an interview with Maria, but she has no interest.  We're told Maria has "a special place in her heart for Oprah" and if she ends up doing anything it will probably be with her.

Bottom line ... Maria doesn't want a full-time job now -- and with a settlement that could approach $200 million, she doesn't need it.

That's because she's smart. She doesn't want networks capitalizing over her divorce drama. If they really wanted her to have her show, why didn't they ask her after her run of being the first lady of California? They ask her now because she's in the news of being the scorned woman. Good for her for turning them down.

Well thank God she's refusing offers. Nobody wants to see this shriveled up old shrew on TV anymore.

Truth is she never was a very good journalist anyway. Nobody's missed her all of these years.

You better do it now, because once Arnold's spotlight is no longer on you nobody will care or remember you.

The ONLY reason she made it on TV was because of the Kennedy name.

Most likely the ONLY reason why Arnold married her.

She looks like a BUG.

@Maria


If you do decide to get a gig, can you interview Mike Walters? I'd love to know what's going on inside his head.


Well, besides the allconsuming hunger that seems to be the defining part of his personality.

Not sure why everyone always feels they need to say something negative about every story. Maria is a class act--glad to hear she knows what matters, especially at this difficult time in her family's life.
