California's former first lady Maria Shriver has made it her hallmark to celebrate women as "architects of change" - but the author, activist, journalist and mother of four always offered a more circumspect view of herself as simply "a work in progress."
What comes next for Shriver - personally, professionally and politically - may now be played out on the public stage in the wake of the scandal involving her husband, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who last week admitted having a child with a housekeeper more than a decade ago while married to Shriver. The couple announced their separation earlier this month.
"She has one of the strongest personal and professional 'brands' out there - and that's something to her eternal credit," said author and business communications expert Ruth Sherman, a former faculty member of the Women's Campaign School at Yale University.
"She kept it going, and she never really allowed herself to be overshadowed by her marriage to Schwarzenegger,"

Architects of higher taxes for zillions of programs that help almost no one.
Maria is loaded. It’s not her lookout.
Her divorce settlement will make her even richer.
She’s a Kennedy and she doesn’t have to worry about how to pay her bills. She doesn’t need a big settlement to pay her bills. She and her liberal causes will be well served. She has all the connections a Kennedy or a celebrity in general could have. She might even find herself a man. Her life is going to be just fine.
Is it just me or does she look more and more a wooden puppet every day.
Maybe she’ll replace Biden as VP on the 2012 ticket.
I think she’s had some work done over the years. Perhaps also magnified by extreme efforts to stay thin. She looks awful.
It’s not just you. I was wondering the other day if she goes to Nancy Pelosi’s plastic surgeon.
That prenuptial for 25 Million Jackie sign is not valid she is getting her share of his estate.
Maria will try and bleed Arnold too.
Jackie only got that 25 Million, Teddy.
I've been celebrating women since I was 13. Yes, indeed, I love watching the women's movement.
what political office are the Dems grooming her for???
Now that she's getting a divorce, maybe she'll be able to move on and start eating.
Actually, she looks like she has been embalmed if you ask me. I don’t necessarily agree about her having one of the strongest “brands” out there....unless it is formaldehyde.
the demonic democrat plantation.
Secretary of Women and Children Hurt Most Dept.
You may be right. She doesn't look much different to me than when she hooked up with Arnie.
I’m curious. What did she know and WHEN did she know it about Arnold’s love child? Did she stay mum until after he was out of office so she could continue to be the first lady and get all the first lady perks?
You know attend fo the events, get out of speeding tickets, etc...
Now let’s see... the love child is 14, I think it was. So we’re to believe that she didn’t know anything for 14 years; that’s 14 long YEARS! A man as public as Arnold is and nothing gets to her for 14 years.
Something’s wrong with that picture...
Either she knew and stayed quiet or she is too stupid to find out, in spite of all the rumors?
Bad hair day...
The usual demrat group (in this case sex) politics. This woman is about as relevant as three tits on a boar. I seem to recall Aaahnold saying he sought out Shriver’s advice on everything—and heeded it. Doesn’t that make her complicit in the demise of the once mighty State of kallifornia?
I believe the correct saying goes, “as worthless as tits on a boar.”
it does go back a few generations, you understand!
However, since you brought it up, the saying does match quite a few in politics these days, starting at the top!!
I know that everyone concerned was considerably younger, but she seemed to have had a healthy appetite in those days. Starting with her marriage she seemed to get thinner and thinner to the point that she has for sometime looked unwell.
A Ca. lefty who will vote and legislate like Babs Boxer and San Fran Nan. No wonder Ca. is doomed and I live here. I am too old to escape
