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."

Based on the lines around Maria's mouth, she looks like a big smoker.

Ugh, the only one Arnold may have ticked off were people with no lives who think what this man did 16 years ago is their business. And, Maria is a has been who now is just doing the yawnie stuff since no news agency wants her. Pretty much she just left Arnold because she didn't have the guts to do it before. She is a Kennedy, and considering all the men in that family cheat, you know this is not the reason she left. She might hate him, but the reality is no one would remember her name if she had not married him.

Does Maria smoke? She's got some serious lip wrinkles.

Kris Jenner did the same thing to Robert Kardashian-cheated on him multiple times, then wrote a book to cash in. They are,those kind of self serving people.
Public figures~ with no boundaries.

Would she have had a journalism career,if not for the "Kennedy name?" I found her very dry in her presentation, and rather peculiar looking.Very odd bone structure in the face.The Kennedy men never married beautiful women, but they always had affairs with them ,Gloria Swanson, Marilyn Monroe etc.

It must be hard on their kids to know that their father is a complete ass with no class whatsoever. He's also doesn't care how much he hurts others. He's shown his true colors, and his career is going down the toilet.

It's pretty obvious that men with serious Mommy issues love to read TMZ when you read the baseless nasty comments about Maria Shriver. Name one thing she ever did "wrong" except not live up to some beauty standard of yours or be born into a family you despise.

And those cave-dwelling cretins among you who think being a stay-at-home mother raising your family when your man is traditional and demands it is "mooching" or a "free ride" can just go f*ck yourselves (and you probably have to, anyway).

So many hateful, insulting and ill informed, critical comments from the soap opera and reality TV crowd.
People who have no facts, only mean fantasies about folks they know very little about.
I can tell because their very comments can be applied to themselves.

Forget about her being pissed at Arnold. We all know he's sad.
She must be exploding with 60 minutes for publishing that pre face lift photo

any negative comments about The Kennedys and Arnold.
Did these right wing commenters forget Arnold is a Republican?
THE PAGAN BALL GLOVE WILL BE FORGOTTEN AS WELL IN A FEW SHORT YEARS.
