Arnie and Maria Shriver Separating


#1

Schwarzenegger and Shriver have been married 25 years, it seems they've been separated for a few weeks now. Very sad.

Pretty gossipy for T-Mag, but it's Arnold news, so it seems relevant to our interests

If this is true, he is such a douche bag I don't blame her. Don't get it twisted, he is NOTHING like the movie heroes he plays.


#3

I wonder if they'll be writing her out of "The Govenator" cartoon? Honestly, this doesn't surprise me much now that his political career is over.


#4

This is sad, what with her slowly getting the same face as him after all this time.


#5

AHAHAHAHAHA!


#6

You're on a roll this morning old timer!


#7

This. Arnold calculates everything. This marriage was just another move he had to make to get where he wanted to be.


#8

And history repeats itself.


#9

Wait this is news to me, why do you guys all think Arnie is a douchebag? We all know that Pumping Iron movie stuff was made up. So were are you getting this "Douchebagness" from about Arnold?


#10

LOL.


#11

Well, besides really tanking the economy here in Cali and capitulating to the unions (which he said he wouldn't) what really makes him a douchebag, in my opinion, is this:

He has a political friend whose son murdered someone, got convicted and sentenced to 15 yrs in prison. One of last things he did in office was reduce this guy's sentence to 7 yrs, self-admittedly because "that's what friends do for each other" or something to that effect.

If that was your son that got killed, I think you'd being calling him something much worse than a douchebag!


#12

Agreed....plus, there are no real Hollywood marriages.

Hell, I am waiting for the Will Smith and Jada Pinkett separation because they are about the only ones to dodge that bullet this long.


#13

Don't hate the playa, hate the game.


#14

Wow you guys really think the marriage was a sham?

25+ years of marriage and kids would have me believing it was just a marriage that went south. The only thing I can see is they slightly delayed their divorce until Arnold's political career ended.


#15

lol @ making a direct quote and then saying "or something to that effect"


#16

Why? So you can move in and put the moves on Jada? lol


#17

I don't see that happening.

I admire him a lot - and part of that reason is because he remains out of the Hollywood spotlight and keeps his shit private. He's one of the few.


#18

Dude, I've been in love with her since A Different World.


#19

It's a true quote that I made up.

Too bad you don't like Tatiana Ali? She lives in my townhouse complex, she may be in the hunt, for a jacked dentist.
