Maria to '60 Minutes'

You Tick Tick Tick Me Off!

0928_60_minutes_maria_shriver_articleGet this ..."60 Minutes" did its interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger without ever contacting Maria Shriver -- to get her take on the things he said in his autobiography ... and she's not happy about it.

Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... a "60 Minute" producer made calls Monday to friends of Maria -- AFTER Arnold's interview was shot -- to see if she had a general comment about the book ... but the producer never gave specifics about what Arnold said in the interview or the book.  We're told the piece was already in the can, and Maria had "no interest" in commenting -- especially because it's ridiculous to wedge a comment of hers in a long piece.

One source says, "The piece is a blow *** for Arnold.  Lesley Stahl just fawned over him," adding it was no surprise Maria's point of view was never solicited before Stahl sat down with Arnold.

As we first reported, Arnold never offered an advance copy of the book to Maria.  A close friend of hers tells TMZ, "She knows the book is a big PR stunt to get back in the public's good graces."

As for whether Maria will read the book, we're told she has no burning desire  One of Maria's friends told us, "What Maria has already been through ... nothing surprises her anymore."

Maria knows the part where he lied, cheated & hurt her the most. 60 Minutes is helping Arnold with his campaign to restore his popularity. His replies to Stahl's questions were never a simply yes or no. Before admitting his guilt, he'd rephrase the questions so as to soften his guilt.
.
This book is only confirming that Arnold is a bigger douche bag than we thought he was. Will not read his book, even if it were given to me.

I don't know why TMZ is still humping on this story. Lets re-cap, this story is about Arnold's life, written by Arnold. Does 60 min. have an obligation to call each key player in this book? Maria may decide to speak, or publish something, but right now her silence is louder than his words.

The issue here really isn't looks (no, neither Maria or the housekeeper lady are supermodels, most people are not) - the issue here is that douche Arnold was only ever using Maria for his own political goals and most likely never really gave a crap about her, and that was cruel and wrong. Arnold would never have married a woman from an ordinary background (like HE himself came from of course) but he would marry a Kennedy woman he knew he could use. He's a pig.

I can understand her being pissed. Arnies book won't be flying off the shelves. His body building was all steroids. His over stretched steriod muscles is now and has been nothing but fat and flab. He looks like crap.

60 Minutes has no obligation to get Maria's opinion. She can write a book too, get her own interview, and keep Arnold out of that one.

More attempts to disrespect Maria. Arnold did'nt bring Maria to her knees by being an republican official so he went with the gut punch. His maid thing. Publishing every wet dream he had should be devastating to Maria, but it's not. He's pathatic. . Yoo Hoo Maria look over here! I got my D*** out!!!! Men like him push their children into casualties of his bad behavior Not Maria. Maria could never be the victim, the children are. He wants to get back with Maria so he can torture her further. I'd left him when he decided he wanted to be a republican.

Awesome     

I don't see how it is any of her business what happens with the book. It's Arnold's book, not hers. If SHE wasn't asked about it then that means no one cared what she thought.

So that dlck could pretty much say anything he wanted, get it out there in print and in the interview media and it's out there as gospel. I see whose side you are on TMZ, you've been putting the most hideous pictures of Maria you can find out there. Granted, she's got that gaunt Kennedy face, but you are certainly making her the bad guy. Maybe Kim K should put a word in for her. That'll change your tune.

Maria needs a better putty knife for her makeup. The old one isn't filling all the creases.
