'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Can Shriver and Schwarzenegger's marriage be saved?

Arnold Schwarzenegger is speaking out for the very first time about his shocking split from Maria Shriver!

They join some other high profile political couples who split after decades together, like Al and Tipper Gore and Elizabeth and John Edwards.

But unlike those couples, there may be signs today that Arnold and Maria’s marriage can be saved! What do you think? Post below.

Some other big stories we’re fired up about on the show today: We've got a "Showbiz Tonight" exclusive with Kim Kardashian on marriage and having kids, and is Pippa Middleton now a bigger star than her sister Catherine?

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

    Women are a dime a dozen. That's what Arnold is considering right now. He thinks that he can find anybody to fill the female spot. If he really loves his wife he will let her kick his ass and beg for forgiveness. He may have had a moment of lust that got out of hand, but should that ruin his relationship with the woman he really wants to be with? He brought a baby into this world and it should be a great moment to accept what happened and move on. Life is too short for ruined marriages. If Maria and Arnold really love each other they will survive. Tom Jones and his wife are a great example of true love.

    After seeing the interview where he groped the female reporter she should have dumped him right then. That was gross!

    Maria was forced to live Arnold's life for many years. I think she wants to get back to a place where her life is her own. I don't blame her.

    Many couples survive empty nest syndrome. All they have to do is rediscover why they decided to love each other all over again. Most marriages do this regularly. Sometimes, however, marriages suffer because couples don't. It's usually that simple.

    my parents were married almost 31 years and they got divorced. Can happen to anyone if they can't work through their problems.

    I think they can work things out. Maybe it's because he's home more now since he doesn't have a "day job". Maybe they just need a "break".

    She has defended him in the past over claims that he groped women. Maybe he did more than grope and she has had enough.

    ...Congratulations? Is that a joke? Is that supposed to make you look good and me look bad?

    @ The Dead Kennedys Wow dude. Uncalled for. Also, Arnie has to divorce her so he can focus on Terminator 5 😛

    It's always a shame when a marriage falls apart. Sometimes it's for the better. Every situation is different. Still sad, no matter who it is.
