THE DIRTY: Wow…fresh off of his announcement that he’s in talks to revive his “Terminator” series, Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver have announced plans to separate after a 25 year marriage! In a joint statement, the couple say that “At this time, we are living apart, while we work on the future of our relationship,"  They also mention that they are continuing to co parent their four children ranging in age from 14 to 21. Maybe Maria will return to TV to the vacancy that Meredith Viera’s departure will leave….

The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink by Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress  - released today by Rosetta Books and available as an eBook at NYPL - examines three major cultural and economic changes over the past 50 years:

  • Women work more outside the home, but still earn less than men.
  • Women lead more families on their own.
  • Women today need higher education to enter the middle class.

Featuring the insight of a power packed roster of big thinkers and talented contributors, including Hillary Clinton, Anne-Marie Slaughter and Lebron James, the book examines practical solutions surrounding the issues that face women and the economy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s official gubernatorial portrait was unveiled this week in Sacramento, with a slight modification from its original design: In it, he was once depicted wearing a lapel pin that bore the image of his now-former wife, Maria Shriver.

There’s a smudge where the pin used to be now.

Women somehow get portrayed as one type. You’re either a feminist or you’re not. You’re a working woman or you’re not. I’m raising two girls, and I say to them, ‘I need you to be strong and soft. You can be smart and beautiful… You can be all of these things.’
