Arnold Schwarzenegger Tells Maria Shriver ‘No Money From Book Deal!’
It seems that the former “Govern-ator” is not giving into Maria Shriver’s requests for an advanced copy of his autobiography and to be even straighter to the point, Arnold is not giving her one cent from the profit he is going to get from his book. Arnold told Shriver that even though 34 years together (married for 25) seems like it would mean something, she isn’t getting anything from the book because it is “His” book and not hers.
The ‘Terminator’ has received a multi-million dollar advance in his book and promised royalties. However, the star doesn’t want to share in those winnings because he feels that they are solely his winnings and that Shriver is not going to get anything from it. Despite the fact that a big portion of the book is about his and Shriver’s relationship, he still believes she had nothing to do with the book and that it is solely about his life.
The movie star and Shriver have been in the middle of a divorce in which Arnold feels that he is getting the raw end of the deal even thought it was he who cheated on her with the Maid and fathered a child with her. It seems that this divorce keeps going in circles because Arnold is either being too pig-headed or Maria is asking for too much. Either way you look at it, the truth of the matter is that this is messed up. With so much heartache, both must be tired of this. It was even rumored that Arnold tried to talk Shriver into taking him back. To this, she told him that she wouldn’t.

In any divorce involving children, it is hard. However, with celebrities you thought were going to last forever, it all goes to show that once money is involved, it turns ugly quickly. The book is set to come out in a few days and is titled ‘Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story’. In this book, Arnold reveals the good and the bad of his life. Unlike many autobiographies, the “Total Recall” star is holding nothing back and talks about every detail in his life so far.
The real question remains though. “Do you buy into this? Is this worth the read to know about the star’s life?” It is tough to go through anything that the two former lovers and companions are going through, especially with children, but it is a start of a new battle. Next we will be seeing Shriver coming out with a book. It is likely to happen.
