Maria Shriver

Friends Call 'BULLSH*T'

on Arnold

Arnold Schwarzenegger was lying through his gap teeth when he claimed Maria Shriver KNEW he was banging other women during their marriage ... this according to multiple sources connected to Maria.

Arnold fessed up to cheating on Maria multiple times during his interview with "60 Minutes" last night ... saying Maria knew about ALL of his trysts.

But one source close to Maria tells us ... "BULLSH*T" -- saying Maria never would have defended him against all of the groping claims several years ago had she known Arnold was stepping out. The source also says Maria would have ended the marriage had Arnold told her.

Another source tells TMZ ... Maria definitely suspected Arnold was screwing around behind her back ... but it was never discussed until she confronted him about his love child with the maid.

But we're told Maria was really in love with Arnold during their marriage ... and was truly crushed when she learned of his betrayal.

He was so evasive in that interview. So, now he uses a bunch of user-friendly words like "regret" "pain" etc., but it's like the truth of what he did never got to his heart.

This is the most likely fact of this relationship.

Maria was looking for a free ride and lots of money and Arnold could provide all this for her. It was widely published about his many "flings" with other women during his weight lifting days. Why would she not know this unless she was willing (as most Kennedy's are) to gain power, fame and money.

This is a pair of libertine's and she should at this time forget about it as it makes her cheap and unworthy.

The thing about that is only two people on the face of the earth knows the truth here. Either one could be lying, and at the end of the day who really gives a damn?

I know I'm gonna get lambasted for this, but there are women in this world who look the other way and NEVER even ASK the man if they are cheating. Silence is a form of approval. I don't condone, in any way, what Arnold did, but when a man has to be in couples therapy for his wife to even ASK him about a kid that looks like him, I think she's turned a blind eye one too many times.


It happens in many long term marriages, because they love their husband, and maybe lifestyle, more than they hate the cheating. Problem is, Maria ended up with egg on her face in a VERY public way. I'm not entirely sure they would be separated right now if his illegitimate kid wasn't public knowledge.

He was a big deal back in the day. Sadly He has been a has been for a while He also has been a loser the entire time. IF more women do what Maria did, walk and not take it, i bet these lovers would think twice before cheating.

I hate it when people use "I'm not perfect" as a justification for awful behavior. It doesn't require perfection to be honest and loyal to the people you supposedly care about.

Maria Shriver is a silver spooned spoiled little snob who has never had to live in the real world with the common man and poor people. Arnold is a regular guy who at this point has no reason to lie and you can be darn sure she knew about all the woman he banged. It only became a problem when she learned he banged the UGLY LOOKING maid and the child grew to be much more handsome and cuter than maria's fugly looking kids,, Maria just couldn't deal with her man bagging an ugly looking poor peasant instead of her smelly rich princess peach and then add to the wound that the boy is way better looking then her puppies

On behalf of Arnold and Arnold fans everywhere, I'd like to thank TMZ for giving Arnold's new book release *massive* exposure, score! :D
Arnold, in just being Arnold, was already getting a great deal of attention for his book release.
But TMZ greatly boosted that exposure over the last week.
Almost 160... thousand people answered the Arnold Polls on TMZ...and that's only the number of people who actually answered, you can quadruple that for actual readers.
Effectively, TMZ has guaranteed Arnold will sell boat loads more books.
Cha-ching$ :D

I believe the she suspected but didn't know for sure until she confirmed the maid's son was his. She left him after that. So I believe if she had known for sure about the other women back then she'd of left him then too. Team Maria

His heartless attitude about his tremendously disrespectful behavior is disgusting. He has already hurt and embarrassed his family to the nth degree and now he is going public to add to it. Typical narcissistic behavior, justify bad behavior, hurt others while thinking of no one but himself. He needs a huge humbling event in his life big time.

A friend, who was a stunt person on the first Predator movie, talked that Arnold would hit up on women on that set. She noted he was a total woman chaser, I guess when you have as much clout and fame like Arnold..you can do anything. If he banged his housemaid and knocked her up, what other kids of his are floating around out there? I feel sorry for Maria and the family, eventually his womanizing would have caught up to him...and it did.
