I'm sure you've seen this but Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are apparently separated.
Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, have separated, with Shriver moving out of their Brentwood mansion while the two determine the next step in their 25-year marriage.
Shriver has been residing apart from the actor-turned-politician for the last few weeks. The former first couple confirmed the separation in a joint statement released Monday after questions from The Times.
"This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us," the statement read. "After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.
I guess Arnold will have more time for the three movies he will star in coming up. But at 63, isn't he a bit old for another Terminator role?
I guess the real question (for poli-junkies, now that its too late for California) is this: will Arnold Schwarzenegger start acting like a free market conservative Republican and fan of Ronald Reagan and Milton Friedman now that Maria Shriver is out of his life? Cailfornia gossip has always had it that Shriver was a big reason behind the Governator's sharp left turn here. I think that he changed as a result of simple, crass, political opportunism.
Going forward, now that he has more time on his hands, I think that the Governator will be a permanent fixture at international global
