Maria is the second and only female child among the five siblings to Eunice Mary Kennedy and Robert Sergeant Shriver Jr., and is the niece of United States President John F. Kennedy. Maria earned a bachelors degree in American studies from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. After completing her education, Marina tried out her luck on television, mostly as an anchor and newsreader. For her most noted works, she has co-anchored ‘The CBS Morning News’ followed by NBC News. She was working as a contributing anchor in NBC Dateline from 1989, but took unpaid leave in 2003, when her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, became a candidate for California recall election.

After Arnold won the election, Maria became the First Lady of California. After a few months, she resigned from NBC due to a conflict of interest. Apart from having a successful television career as a journalist and a filmmaker, Maria is also a reputed author. To date, she has published six best-selling books, namely “What’s Heaven”, “Ten Things I Wish I’d Known”, “What’s Wrong With Timmy?”, “What’s Happening to Grandpa”‘, “And One More Thing Before You Go”, and “Just Who Will You Be”. The royalties from these books have added extensively to her net worth. She has also produced the HBO documentary ‘The Alzheimer’s Project’ which earned her two Emmy Awards.

Maria is also a recognized philanthropist. She has been campaigning for people with intellectual disabilities, and she’s a member of the International Board of Special Olympics that her mother founded. Being First Lady of California also helped her to aid more intellectually disabled people, and hired them in various state offices. Following that, she has also launched various projects like ‘A Woman’s Nation Changes Everything’, ‘A Women’s Nation Takes on Alzheimer’s” and ‘A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink’ which have added extensively to her profile as a philanthropist.

Maria married former Mr. Universe and a renowned action hero of Hollywood, Arnold Schwarzenegger on 26 April 1986 in Massachusetts, at a Roman Catholic Church. They are parents to four children, however, in 2011 the couple divorced as it was revealed that Arnold had an adulterous relationship with a housemaid and even had a child. Their divorce reportedly gave a considerable financial benefit to Maria, which must have helped her to pile up her net worth even more.

1We all obsess about what we are doing and accomplishing. What if we let it go and simply made the way we live our lives our accomplishment?
2[her opinion of Clint Eastwood] He's weird.
3Arnold (Schwarzenegger) was right to follow his dream. He's loved this governor's job more than anything else. It was a perfect match for his intellect, his love of people, passion for public policy, and his competitive streak. I've never seen him happier or fulfilled. Even with the ups and downs of the last seven years, if he had to do it over again, he would in a heartbeat, and I believe him.
