Maria Shriver turns down offers for TV hosting gigs

maria-shriver-getty-images.jpgMaria Shriver has officially filed for divorce from her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger after it was revealed he had an affair with their housekeeper and has a 13-year-old son from the affair. And now TMZ is reporting that Shriver has been inundated with offers to host TV shows, but so far she has been saying thanks, but no thanks.

TMZ says that everything from talk shows to news magazine programs to news organizations have approached the former news anchor, but she is just wanting to concentrate on being a mom. She also has turned down any interviews so far. The prediction is that if she does one, it will be Oprah who snags it.

Shriver is no stranger to TV hosting and anchoring. Before she was the First Lady of California, she co-anchored the "CBS Morning News," NBC's "Sunday Today" and "NBC Nightly News" on Sundays. She won Peabody Award for journalism for an hour-long documentary she did for "Dateline NBC" on Wisconsin's welfare reform program in 1998.
