Jean Rubin has a lot to say about Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's pending divorce!

 

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have heard that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have called it quits. I usually try to ignore the celebrity Hollywood scene, but couldn’t help but share my opinion when Glee brought it up over lunch the other day.

“Jean, did you hear?” asked Glee.

“Let me guess, you tried a miracle cream that shrinks nipples?!” I said grumpily. My friend has had surgery to tighten everything including her private parts and I was tired since Maury kept me up all night with his snoring. Sometimes it’s a lost cause trying to sleep.

“No, the Terminator and Maria Shriver split. They're ending their marriage after 25 years!”

“Really? What happened? They seemed like a solid couple except for the fact that he's a steroid-dwelling Republican and she's from one the wealthiest Democratic families in America.” Ironies abound. This was one celebrity marriage I respected simply for the fact they kept their private lives private. What a world we live in where every detail of your personal life is blasted on Facebook.

“He's admitted he had an affair with their housekeeper and they had a love child together!”

“What a scumbag!” I exclaimed forgetting that we were sitting in a quiet restaurant. I put my head down to nibble the fried edamame. Glee ordered to combat our unhealthy nutritional choices. “Poor Maria. She's such a bright, classy woman who doesn’t deserve to be lied to and publically humiliated.”

“I don’t know what to think, Jean. I feel badly for her but at the same time I think women need to realize who they're choosing. They marry these high profile actors, athletes and politicians thinking they can reform them. Men in power often have inflated egos that allow them to justify their infidelities."

“Are you sure that you aren’t interested in the fact that Arnold is a free man now? I can already see the wheels spinning through your brain,” I joked.

“Very funny, Jean. However, he did treat the maid well ‘financially.’ But you'd never catch me living in Bakersfield. I'm taking Austrian body-builders off my list.”

As Glee bites into a whole-grain-bread eggplant organic green pepper sandwich, sprouts spring from her mouth. She says with her mouth full, "Now the head of the World Bank accused of raping a maid in the Sofitel Hotel in Manhattan, that guy is a scumbag."

Hmmm... time for the hairshirt, the pilgrim's staff, and the begging ball!

Spot on Marcia...I don't know what happened in this Sofitel bedroom, but if he tried to rape her I hope he won't get away with it.

As for Arnie, it isn't very pretty and I hope he'll understand what he has lost...

Fun to read and lots of common sense.  Great post Marcia.
