Oprah Books Maria Shriver Post Scandal

Damn, Oprah moves quick! Just hours after Arnold Schwarzenegger announced he fathered another child, Oprah has already booked Maria Shriver for her final show and offered her her own show!

Maria will guest star on Oprah’s final show, presumably to talk about the scandal. Big time TV syndicators have been hounding her camp all morning to score the first interview—but it looks like Oprah moved quicker than them and locked her in.

So why Oprah? Aside from her massive audience, Maria is reportedly also in talks with Oprah’s OWN network for her own talk show.

NBC was interested in giving her her own talk show a few months ago, but the idea never really went anywhere—until the scandal broke. Now they’re desperate to get her on NBC. You snooze, you lose.

Earlier this morning Arnold confessed that he’s been a massive sleaze and fathered a 10 year-old child with someone who worked for the family. And he waited 10 years to tell Maria!

Schwarzenegger told The Times, "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

So far Maria has no comment. And I don’t blame her. How do you comment on that? “Yeah, I knew. It sucks”? Not much to say. She’s saving it for the O.
