Biografie von Maria Shriver

Als Nichte des verstorbenen US-amerikanischen Präsidenten gehört  zu den politisch einflussreichsten Familien der USA. Aber das Mitglied des Kennedyklans schlug zunächst einen anderen Weg ein. Sie studierte an der "Georgetown University" in Washington mit dem Hauptfach Amerikanistik und begann anschließend als Fernseh-Moderatorin zu arbeiten.

Karriere im TV

Den Einstieg schaffte Maria Shriver als Co-Moderatorin der "Morning News", einer Nachrichtensendung auf CBS. Später moderierte sie die "News Sunday Today" und die "NBC Nightly News" und wurde zu einer der gefragtesten Nachrichten-Moderatorinnen der USA. Zudem war die Kennedy-Nichte auch als Produzentin tätig: Die von ihr produzierte Dokumentation "The Alzheimer's Project" wurde sogar mit zwei Emmys ausgezeichnet.

Beziehung mit Arnold Schwarzenegger

Doch trotz ihrer beeindruckenden Fernseh-Karriere kennt man Maria Shriver als die Frau von . Die TV-Moderatorin lernte den österreichischen Schauspieler 1977 kennen, als er in Hollywood noch ein unbeschriebenes Blatt war.Während seine Karriere stetig voran ging, stellte Maria ihre Karriere zurück, um sich voll und ganz der Mutterrolle zu widmen. Das Paar hat vier gemeinsame Kinder: Katherine, Christina, Patrick und Christopher.

Politisches Wirken

Als Arnold Schwarzenegger von der Leinwand auf die politische Bühne wechselte, unterstützte Maria ihren Gatten beim Wahlkampf um den Posten des Gouverneurs von Kalifornien. Es war wohl auch ihr unermüdliches Engagement, dass dem Hollywood-Star zum Wahlsieg verhalf.

Der Skandal

2011 wurde Marias heile Welt erschüttert: Es kam ans Licht, dass Arnold Schwarzenegger mit der langjährigen Haushälterin der Familie einen Sohn gezeugt hat. Zum damaligen Zeitpunkt war bereits 14 Jahre alt.Diesen schockierenden Vertrauensbruch konnte Maria Shriver ihrem Mann nicht verzeihen und reichte nach mehr als 25 Jahren Ehe die Scheidung ein.Mittlerweile soll sich das Paar zwar wieder verstehen und wurde sogar beim gemeinsamen Familienessen gesichtet. Doch ein Liebes-Comeback wird es nach solch einer Demütigung vermutlich nicht geben.

Today, on #SpiritDay, it's important to remember -- words matter. Bullying has no place in our homes or in our politics.


Thought-provoking words from G.W. Bush. Politics don't benefit from bullying. Deters good people from public life.


"Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children." -- Important, thought-provoking words from George W. Bush. He’s right. Our politics don’t benefit from that and it deters good people from public life. Words matter. Bullying has no place in our homes or our politics.


"Find something in your life worth fighting for." -- love this!

Every time I’ve heard “no” in my professional life, I’ve challenged myself to defy it. To go around it. I’ve used it as fuel to keep fighting. How do you use your "no"? Sign up for my Sunday Paper to read what I've Been Thinking each week:

Meditate on this. Taken by my brother Bobby in Jackson Hole, WY. How could one look at this and not want to do all they could to protect mother Earth? Nature. Go out in it today and breathe. Stand. Sit. Stay. #MondayMeditation


I’ve been thinking a lot this week about the word “no.” No is a word that has great power in our lives and in our society. And yet, it’s one of the most challenging words in our vocabulary. No is a word that, if you push past it, can propel you forward. It’s also a word that can empower you to take ownership over your life and define it by your own terms. When I went to a retreat earlier this year, one of the lines that stuck with me the most was this: “For your yes to mean something, so must your no.” Read more of what I've Been Thinking in my Sunday Paper:

I’ve been thinking all week about the power of one. One moment. One person. One action. Any of these can change your life forever. It takes one person to fall in love with you to change your whole world around for the better. It also takes just one person with violent intentions to turn your world upside down...

On this day, may we pause and may we pray. Pray for those in Las Vegas who lost their lives. Pray for those who lost their family members and friends. Pray for those injured, and wish them a safe and speedy recovery. May we not rush by this news. May we not scroll by. Let us stop and recognize this for what it is: Startling. Horrific. Heartbreaking. Scary. Yet another example of a group of people coming together as one to enjoy a joyous occasion, only to have it cut short in the most tragic of ways. What can we do? We can reach out to those we love and comfort them. We can reach out to those affected and let them know we are here. We can speak out for gun control. We can use our voices to talk about mental health. And we can be diligent about using our voices in a strong, calm, powerful way. We cannot stand for this any longer. Violence, in every form, must be extinguished.


I've Been Thinking about those who are taking a knee and the idea of taking a stand. There has been a lot of discussion about how to respect our flag and our “National Anthem,” about how to acknowledge and address racism, and about how to define what it really means to be an American. I've been asked countless times, “What's going on? Why is this happening? What would you do?” what I've Been Thinking in my Sunday Paper:]
