Biography

Maria Shriver was born in Chicago, Illinois, as the second child and only daughter of the politician Sargent Shriver and his wife Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Her mother is a sister of the assassinated American President John F. Kennedy. Shriver received a B.A. degree in American Studies from Georgetown University. Maria Shriver married the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger on April 26, 1986. They have two daughters and two sons.

Career

She was a TV news reporter for NBC's Dateline NBC from 1989 until 2004. In August of 2003, Shriver took an unpaid leave of absence from NBC News when her husband became a candidate in the 2003 California recall. Upon her husband's inauguration as the 38th Governor of California, she became the First Lady of California on November 17, 2003. She then returned to reporting, making two more appearances as an anchor for Dateline NBC.

On February 3, 2004, Shriver told NBC she wished to be "relieved of [her] duties at NBC News," citing the conflict of interest between her role as a journalist and her status as the First Lady of California and her increasing role as an advocate of her husband's administration. NBC News president Neal Shapiro did not refer to Shriver's decision as a resignation, however, and issued a statement calling Shriver's departure "an extended leave of absence."

Prior to her work at NBC, Shriver had co-anchored the CBS Morning News. She has won Peabody and Emmy awards and is the author of two best-selling books: What's Heaven and Ten Things I Wish I'd Known Before I Went Out Into The Real World.

Anorexia nervosa

"Could this woman be any thinner/skinnier/closer to death?" "An intervention is needed." [1] (http://homepage.mac.com/shaviden/iblog/C2114732140/E438448509/)

"In 1995, when a tabloid reported she was anorexic, she said she was thrilled, telling Marilyn Beck of the Tribune Media Service that "being underweight has been the greatest dream of my life . . . I'm not underweight and have to fight not to grow out of my clothes." " [2] (http://www.correspondences.org/archives/000392.html)

"There have been rumors or anorexia, but those have all been denied. I have heard that she is very exercise conscious and tends to gain weight in her backside and lose it in her face, so to keep herself thin makes her face look even thinner." [3] (http://cgi1.usatoday.com/mchat/20031022004/tscript.htm)
