Maria Shriver, Professional Wife

Tuesday, May 10, 2011


Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger announced today that they are separating after 20+ years of marriage.

Best to both of them.

I wouldn't even mention it except that the coverage of the announcement is positively appalling in its disappearing of her career.

CBS, however, takes the cake with "Bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, say they are separating after a quarter century of marriage." Wow.

Maria Shriver is a Peabody- and Emmy-winning journalist, an Emmy-winning producer, a best-selling author, an activist, leader on "The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Changes Everything," and creator of The Minerva Awards—named for the goddess Minerva who appears on the California State Seal as a symbol of courage, wisdom, and strength—bestowed annually at The Women's Conference to extraordinary Californian women.

Just FYI.
