Arnold Schwarzenegger Reportedly Asks Maria Shriver for Another Chance
Arnold Schwarzenegger is begging Maria Shriver to take him back, according to Ian Halperin, author of The Governator, who says he just spoke with a close friend of Shriver's.
Halperin told INSIDE EDITION, "He doesn't want to lose his marriage. He doesn't want to lose Maria. He's offered her to go into marriage counseling, sex addiction therapy. He's willing to do whatever it takes."
Halperin says his sources tell him that Shriver is offering her four children advice on how to deal with their dad's love child with the maid.
"I have learned Maria is doing everything it takes to make her children come to terms that they have a half-brother, to embrace their new half-brother and make him feel comfortable and secure and part of the family," said Halperin.
Despite Schwarzenegger's attempts to get Shriver back, one new report says she is moving full steam ahead with the divorce and has been meeting with her lawyer, Laura Wasser.
Attoryney Debra Opri told INSIDE EDITION, "She is a woman who is very empowered in her own self respect. What does she tell her daughters if she goes back? I don't think she can go back."
Shriver was photographed chatting with rock star Bono after lunch at The Ivy in Beverly Hills. The fact she went out to a well known paparazzi hangout seems to suggest that Shriver wants the world to know she's not wallowing at home.
She also stepped out for dinner with her son Patrick, who tweeted:
"Grabbing some dinner with my sis and the best mommy."
Meantime, Schwarzenegger is keeping a low profile at the his estate in Sun Valley, Idaho. He gushed last year about the ritzy resort town in an interview with Plum TV.
"It's really terrific. It's really great for the family because you can do all of those different things," said Schwarzenegger.
Schwarzenegger tells the attractive Plum TV reporter that he's agreeing to talk to her because he has a soft spot for young journalists, like his wife Maria was when they first met.
"My wife was a beginner when I met her 30 years ago, and she was very agressive, fighting for interviews and calling people, so I know exactly how this is. That's why I wanted to do this," Schwarzenegger told the reporter.
And INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret spoke to actress Suzanne Sommers, who has compassion for her friend Schwarzenegger because she believes he suffers from sex addiction.
"There are so many great parts of him and this is just a part that I wish he had the opportunity to learn to manage it. He just made some really, really, really bad decisions," said Sommers.
And actress Jane Seymour got emotional on The View when asked about her widely reported comment about Schwarzenegger having more illegitimate children.
"Anything that I said was stupidly listening to some stuff in the media that day. Everyone was talking, I don't even know where I heard it. I just feel so, so badly for Maria and the children. I just hope that they'll accept my apology and realize that I do not want in any way to exacerbate the pain that that family is going through," said Seymour.
