Maria to '60 Minutes'

You Tick Tick Tick Me Off!

9/29/2012 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

I contacted TMZ about how Arnold had allowed me to be abused, but they failed to respond.

Arnold is a skeezy jerk. He is only doing these shows to promote the book and the other stuff he has going on and 60 minutes knows it.

"I love Maria and Oh yeah, by the way I was banging 20 chicks a night back in the day. "
Whatever! Who cares.

I'm ashamed of 60 Minutes. You guys are supposed to be a topflight NEWS organization. This is Hollywood crap. Don't try to lie and say it's political or Kennedy linked. It is sleazy.

Marie should put the Taylor Swift song We are never ever ever getting back together on her answering machine. That should take care of all of the inquiries. Then she should tell Arnold to drop dead.

Wear sunscreen, kids. Every day. The Kennedy's are a very active and outdoorsy family and in Ms. Shriver's day sunscreen use wasn't diligent like it is today.

I know after divorce if the couple has kids you say well it wasn't a mistke because look at the great kids I got, but, don't you know when it ends with one making other friends (lets say)it's bound to feel like you've totally wasted your time & given your life over to someone who didn't even have a basic amount of respect or love for you. That's got to be painful. I'm gald Maria is secure enough to face the truth. Doubtful- Ole' Arnie will ever change.

Arnold came off looking like the jerk he is. No comment on Maria as she hasn't said anything so now way to gauge her - but he just can't seem to shut the hell up!!!
