'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should Maria give Arnold another chance?

And the drama never ends! There is more big news today surrounding Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. I feel like I’m watching it at the movie theater. All I need is a big bag of popcorn! But as I often say, you cannot make this stuff up! Sad thing is, it’s all very, very real.

There are reports today that Maria Shriver has hired a divorce attorney. However, Maria hasn’t decided whether or not to file for divorce. I am sure a lot of people are saying, “Kick him to the curb!”

But should Maria give Arnold another chance? I’ve got to be honest. I say NO! What do you think? Tell me below.

And did you happen to catch the premiere of Beyonce’s new music video, “Run the World,” on “American Idol”? I love Beyonce. The video is... shall we say, different and certainly an incredibly cool production. Do you love it or hate it? We’re debating this on the show today too.

See you exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN tonight!

    Since he confessed give him another chance if she thinks he is worth it.
    To keep a man with money and power is a big challenge since there are so many pigs out there to get him!!!

    @ twisted. The point is you have never had a relationship with a man, woman or other. With that said, your opinion merits nothing. Have a wonderful day and watch out for donkeys

Fyi life experience formed my opinion growing up see it 1st hand friends that cheat but, a dumbazz like can't understand if you had a woman you might could understand but, when you cheat you just change hands.

    Absolutely NOT. She should not give this guy another chance. Doesn't any one see it.... that Arnie probably doesn't even want Maria anymore? Coming out with the truth proves this!

    Maria, bag it and move on. You can do SO much better!

    I "think" Maria should go after that cruelly acting retired "employee" of hers – that connived and deceitfully went after her husband. Bedded him down. Procreated with him – under her nose. That's what I think. And seek the return of the house and the pensions this you know what secured – for servicing her employer – without the other "employers" permission or knowledge.

    Oh yeah – and Maria should ALSO take Arnold to the cleaners.

      "Oh yeah –and Maria should ALSO take Arnold to the cleaners."
      This is why men cheat, gold digger wives using the courts to get money they didn't earn in the divorce. Its cheaper to stay in a dead marriage and occasionally stray. The divorce laws regarding alimony are about 70 years behind the times.

    From a womans perspective, she shouldn't, by any means, take him back. But that's a question only she can answer. What goes on in a marriage should never be public (unfortunately in this case, not gonna happen)... with that said, I pray she makes the right decision for herself and her family. Having a baby by the house keeper, is a BIG PILL TO SWALLOW! All I know is, Maria is beautiful and deserving of no less than the best life and a husband have to offer her. I hope she and her children stay strong in their time of need.

    it blows my mind how men could cheat on such beautiful women. Not just Maria Shriver, but Eva Longoria, Elin Nordegren, Sandra Bullock to name a few (Jennifer Aniston is debatable but I say Pitt cheated).

      Got news for ya..... Brad Pitt did NOT cheat on that self-appointed victim, Aniston. He wanted a family. She wanted her career. Leaving her was the best thing Brad Pitt did. Now he has the family he has always wanted – not to mention the most beautiful woman in the world.

    It doesn't matter about the looks of the wife, girlfriend and they be great partners but men always think the grass is greener somewhere else, as men get older they really make asses out of themselves. The Other women Iwho messes around with someone else husband, boyfriend are low down too.

    She should take him back. If he cheated it was probably her fault. She's a spoiled left-wing Kennedy, I'm sure her faults are many.

    This is absolutely not about race. I'm black. Jesse nor Al is not my leader. President Obama is the HNIC!!! Arnie is a dumb azz and needs Laser surgery, contacts and bifocals. I don't feel sorry for Maria. She knows first hand how some men are due to the men by way of her famous late Grandfather Joe, her uncles JFK, RFK and Uncle Teddy and of course her husbands history prior to marriage and rumors during the marriage. I feel bad for all the kids, even the ones that has'nt surfaced yet.

    no, kick him to the curb. a leopard doesn't change its spots. i think he got into the marriage because of her family statis and does not deserve her. my daughter was married to a monster and she got out. people always use GOD to make people stay in a relationship and i don't think that is right.

      so, doodoo, what makes shriver a hoe-bag? The fact that she gave up her career for him. The fact that she did a stellar job raising their children. The fact that she's still stunning in her mid-50's. The fact that she used her good name to defend him. Or just the fact that she's a woman. It sounds to me like you have deep-seated issues that have nothing to do with the subject. Go away. Please.

      I think she should give him another chance – for kids and why throw away 25 yrs? Believe me, been there, but if he came crawling back with remorse, I would give it another shot. Besides, it does seem like there is still chemistry there, but I do understand that horror of betrayl.

    • Sad for them...

      I feel sorry for the whole family. It's sad to see any family suffer from a family crisis such as this – and on top of it all... in the public eye. When I try to put myself in Maria's shoes, I don't think I could stay in the marriage – but I would never judge her for choosing to work it out. She's an amazing woman and I wish them all the best to get through this.
