Maria to '60 Minutes'

You Tick Tick Tick Me Off!

EXCLUSIVE

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."

If I ever came to work for TMZ I want to be the guy who's shuffling stale news around the front page at weekends.

It's amazing the legacy of the Kennedy clan. The women suffer of the men they marry. Womanizers, a lot of them. She knew before, and now she gets it.

California, Obama / Mitt, November contest would likely give the California winner prize to Obama but how would a 3 way Obama, Mitt & Ron write in vote count end up? RP votes in 2008 were counted.

The Goldman Sacs / Fed reserve / GMO food-fuel twins might create a fun contest with the Texas Dr. Ron Paul

Audit the Federal Reserve, Support HR 459 Paul & S 202 Paul

Is this game about D R or other? maybe it is about saving the republic. Maybe Obama and Mitt are the underdogs.

Maybe the marriage was awful and divorce was inevitable, and he just didn't care. It is possible she was an ultimate bit*h, she looks the part.

Now she is mad? This woman has been a doormat the entire marriage. Like most Kennedy woman they are used to the husbands cheating on them, it comes with the deal. But after Arnold had a kid with that disgusting old maid Maria should have never spoken to him again unless it involved visitation with the kids. There comes a point when you have to stop someone from crapping on you, it almost seems like Arnold enjoys putting Maria through all this

What can she say? Why should she say anything? He looks like the complete bastard that he is. She doesn't have say a damned thing. He's a whore and she should be glad to be done with his ugly ass. I don't understand why she married him in the first place. There have been rumors about him cheating on her for years and nobody is going to convince me she didn't hear any of them.

60 Minutes ---- Ever "2nd-Source" a story ??
`
Must have TWO independent sources confirming a fact.
`
Maria can ONLY be the 2nd Source to their marital facts.

Kennedys are always manipulative evil bastards. All of them, including the children, should be exterminated, douche liberals.

I hope good Arnold can forget this ugly bitch and move forward! Go Arnold!

Maria Shriver has the "EXACT SAME ACCESS" to the press that Arnold Schwarzenegger possesses. Both she and Arnold admitted that she "HASN'T READ HIS BOOK"!!! It doesn't make any sense for CBS to ask for her comments unless she "ACTIVELY MADE AN EFFORT" to contact them. Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobiography is "HIS PROJECT -- NOT HERS"!!! She has the "SAME OPPORTUNITY" to tell her side of the story, too!!! No one's preventing her from doing so!!!
