Katherine Schwarzenegger speaks out on parents' split: 'Everything happens for a reason'
The New York Daily News ^ | Wednesday, August 10th 2011 | Cristina Everett

Posted on 08/10/2011 8:18:17 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Katherine appears in the mag's September issue.

Handling the overwhelming media attention from her parent's scandalous split wasn't an easy feat for Katherine Schwarzenegger.

The oldest daughter of former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver is speaking out in Harper's Bazaar and addressing the love-child scandal that rocked her family – and the country.

"Me and my siblings have never really been in the spotlight growing up," the 21-year-old tells the magazine. "My parents always really sheltered us, so when [the scandal] started happening, it was like everything came out of nowhere overnight."

Yes Katherine, you are right...

Your dad LOVES sex with other women and your mom is just a complete Kennedy bitch.

She’s NOT GUILTY, and that’s plenty enough.

Kathy is a good girl. Back off on attacking her. She is not her father or mother. She has done nothing wrong. Being the child of divorced parents, life is tough enough.

Yes, the “reason” is that you dad is a dirtbag, sadly.

Good thing she looks more like her mom.

She's majoring in "communications". If she's going to enter the field, "me and my siblings" ain't gonna hack it.

“Me and my siblings have never really been in the spotlight growing up,” the 21-year-old tells the magazine.”

“Me and my siblings...” This is a college graduate speaking?

“And I’m like, this is so inappropriate; you’re trying to provoke me to have an attack and say something crazy,” she added.

Clearly, she has received tips on public speaking from her second cousin Caroline Kennedy!

I’m not trying to pick on a young woman who is going through a difficult time but this whole article is ridiculous!

You're right.

Let's wait 15 years until she's in congress before we attack her.

I beg to differ with you there. Her mother looks like a walking skeleton. It’s a good thing some of her fathers bulk was there to add character to her face.

The best comment Katherine could have made was to say: I have no comment.

She is simply out for some face time for herself.

“me and my siblings?” That would be “My siblings and I.” What California school did she attend?

Amen to that. Especially if they're famous parents.

People, just leave the girl alone and cast the first stone somewhere else. She sounds like a 21 year old girl.

Why not pray that she turns out normal instead.

With parents like she has, the odds aren't in her favor.

Well stated. She is in a complicate situation. Her dad, whom we can assume she loves, has done something pretty awful. Her mom, whom we also assume she loves, is an idiot. And their family issues are being played out in front of the entire world.

She can't win, the best she can hope for is some sort of internal acceptance equilibrium.

Pretty girl -- looks like she got the best of mom and dad -- definitely dad's nose :)

Actually I met Maria when she was about this one’s age and she was a bit on the plump side.

“”Me and my siblings have never really been in the spotlight...”

Correct English?

“Me has never really been in the spotlight....”

It’s similar to Obama’s statement: “President Bush has invited Michelle and I to the White House.”

You’d never say, “President Bush has invited I to the White House.”

O.K. I'm looking at it. She looks as much like her father as she does her mother. Like I said. At least she had her father's genes to add some bulk to her.

Are you sure, sinanju?

My understanding is that in order to be correct, the sentence should still "work" if you remove the second 'party.' In other words, "Me and my siblings have never really been in the spotlight growing up," won't make sense if you take out the "my siblings": "Me have (or has) never really been in the spotlight growing up".

On the other hand, if the sentence were worded as "My siblings and I have never really been in the spotlight growing up", then it would still work with the removal of the siblings: "I have never really been in the spotlight growing up."

Of course, I'm certainly open to correction if I'm wrong!

“Me and my siblings”.....

I had the same thought. But, I hear English misused so often with the younger generation. I do not think our schools are making corrections to improper use of the language. She should know better than to use such a phrase instead of the correct: “my siblings and I”...

I love how FREEPERS turn on people so easily. A few years ago he was the big hero on this site. It happens all the time. The only people who really are still heros on here is Rush and Sarah. The rest of the FREEPER Gods have fallen including Arnold. That is why I don’t get on the hero of the month fan club which currently is Perry in Texas. I am sure he will disappoint at some point. The worst was that Brown in Mass. where there was some heavy orgasmic nonsense going on. I KNEW he would not be the conservative that FREEPERS thought he would be, but you can never tell them that especially during that time of euphoria. Just won’t happen.

I remember too. It was the decisions he made once he became governor that lost him support here.

No, it is not. If you take the phrase "and my siblings" out of the sentence, what remains, "Me have never really been in the spotlight" is not grammatically correct. The correct way to say it is, "My siblings and I..."

Heck, I'm just a gal from South Mississippi, who graduated from a State University, but at least I know that!

“Everything happens for a reason.”

Well, duh.

THIS happened because your father didn’t honor his wedding vows and couldn’t keep his pants zipped. And your maid couldn’t keep her pants zipped either and had sex with a married man.

That’s the reason.

I hate it when people try to gloss over blatant wrongdoing with inane phrases.
