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."

"Sources said". Hey, can I be a source on TMZ, too? I mean, there aren't really any requirements, right? Not one quote from a person willing to put a name with the comment? And why the fascination with Arnold and Maria? We all know they're divorcing and why. Trying to fan a dying flame back to life? Move on to something else, TMZ. Nothing to see here.

This is nothing -- wait until Taylor Swift starts writing songs about h er experiences with the Kennedys and not first vetting the content with the family.

Maria Shriver looks just fine for her age. All these comments about her looks are disgusting. Like how dare she age, what a crime. Sick, really. Show some respect.

On top of all the disrespect and abuse she put up with during marriage to that clown, 60 Minutes ices the wedding cake. She's a journalist, and giving her a sound bite in the middle of a long interview is an insult.

Maria needs to shut her, boney, privileged, skinny ass mouth shut and take a lesson from the immigrant-ernator, Arnold. She has never actually had to WORK for ANYTHING. She was born a 1%er. Arnie had to WORK for it.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a big steaming pile of human arrogance, greed and feces for brains.

What would have Maria thinking that the hacks at CBS owed her anymore courtesy than they have extended to anyone else over the decades? Welcome to the real world Maria.

I met Arnold in a professional capacity YEARS ago and he was/is one the most arrogant pieces of sh1t I've ever met---and I've met a lot. I recall being stupefied as to why Maria married him. While I agree that the book is just a publicity stunt to get back into the public's graces.. but he didn't have to go through those changes.
Firstly, Americans hate reading.
Secondly, the American public could give a gnats ass about his indiscretions. We're morally shot to hell.

Let the winds howl. Who cares if Maria Shriver is upset. Privileged long suffering Maria signed on for it all. Even conceding to her own supposedly feminist mother that she need to BOW DOWN to her husband and accept his terms. Soooo Maria waits until the day after her husband is out of office to have her day. What's up with that, Maria. If it was so abhorrent to you - why didn't you address the issue when you became aware of it. Instead of continuing to support and stand by your man - while it suited Maria's terms.

Come on, Maria. Who cares about your privileged bottom line. You agreed to it all - decades ago. Everyone knows so.
