Maria Shriver started her career as a journalist and news anchor, and now in the midst of her divorce drama every cable and broadcast station is showering her with offers to host her own talk show or join news organizations.
However, Shriver is politely saying thanks, but no thanks, as she’s trying to avoid media spotlight for a while in the middle of all the divorce and settlement turmoil. She doesn’t want a full-time job now and says it will take away from her responsibilities as a mom.
Also, her settlement with Arnold Schwarzenegger might approach $200 million, so she doesn’t really need to work ever again.
Before Maria was the First Lady of California, she co-anchored the “CBS Morning News,” NBC’s “Sunday Today” and “NBC Nightly News.” When she does decide to return to her news anchor roots, she will have no problem.
Additionally, every news organization has been fighting to snag an interview with the former Mrs. Schwarzenegger but she’s also turning them all down. However, if she does do an interview is would most likely only be with Oprah as Maria has “a special place in her heart for Oprah.”
