She married Arnold Schwarzenegger on April
More than a decade after California’s former first lady filed her divorce petition, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are finally divorced.
They have four children and all were born in Los Angeles.
Maria and Arnold’s friendship is unquestionably one of the most important in Hollywood history. Maria and Arnold were married and had children, but they are now divorced and no longer together, despite having strong relationships.
Shriver spent her middle school years living in Paris, save for a brief period where Shriver’s family temporarily moved to Chicago.
Shriver permanently returned to Paris where she attended Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart high school and graduated in 1973.
Maria became interested in journalism while her father was competing for the Vice Presidential elections in 1972. She began her career after graduating with CBS-owned KYW-TV in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she rose through the ranks to become co-anchor of “The CBS Morning News.”
From 1987 through 1990, she left CBS news to work for NBC as a co-anchor of the morning news and conversation show “Sunday Today.” She went on to host “NBC Nightly News” and “Dateline NBC” in the future. When she was elected First Lady of California in 2003, she returned to journalism but eventually stepped down due to a potential conflict of interest.
She promised never to return to journalism after the death of Anna Nicole Smith, as she had become completely disillusioned with American media. She did, however, join NBC in 2013 as a special anchor focusing on women’s issues in the United States.
