Katherine Schwarzenegger Says Parents Split 'For a Reason'

Yes, and apparently that reason had to do with a housekeeper and Arnold's insatiable sexual appetite.

But of course, that's not true. Arnold and Maria's divorce happened for more divine reasons. Like anything else, it happened because God wanted it that way. Katherine Schwarzenegger, the 21 year-old daughter of Arnold and Maria Shriver, says:

"I really do believe everything happens for a reason. A lot of the time, it's hard to understand in the moment why things are happening, but I really do think that. I also like to think God doesn't really give you anything you can't handle."

If God's plan was to put Maria Shriver through a scandalous, heart-wrenching divorce in which her husband basically had a whole other family, God is kind of a jerk.

Since her parents' split back in May, Katherine has been photographed out and about with both parents, but she says she's closer to her mother:

"I've always been way closer to my mom. Even when I was little, I was glued to her all the time. I'm close to my dad, but they're totally different kinds of relationships. I talk to my mom about six times a day, and we constantly e-mail in between that."

Katherine's striking similarity to her mom is undeniable. "People say that I'm her twin," Katherine boasts. " I guess it would be the Kennedy genes; my cheekbones are coming out. We'll be at the breakfast table and my mom will look over at me and say, 'I see them!'"

Are the Kennedy's known for their cheekbones? I thought it was more for their teeth. And banging Marilyn Monroe.

Arnold and Maria have four children total: 20 year-old Christina, Christopher, 13, and Patrick, 17. The couple is currently in the process of their divorce.

Over the weekend, Arnold was spotted out for a bike ride wearing a rather tasteless shirt. It read "I survived Maria." Apparently, Arnold got the shirt last November during a farewell party for his role as Governor. The shirts were designed by Maria's staff as a joke, which I don’t really get, because it's not like she was Governor.

But on the back, the shirt read "2007-2010", and Arnold's was crossed out to read 1977-2010. I guess Arnold just threw on the first thing he found that morning, but damn.

He and Maria are reportedly on good terms, and the two speak frequently.
