Shriver Doesn’t Discuss Scandal At Oprah Show

Maria Shriver didn’t address revelations that her husband fathered a child with another woman when she appeared at Oprah Winfrey’s farewell show.

Shriver walked onstage with Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King on Tuesday evening. The same day it was revealed Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with a woman on his household staff more than a decade ago. In a statement Shriver called it a “painful and heartbreaking time.”

Shriver lauded Winfrey for her efforts toward education. She said the talk show host has “given me love, support, wisdom and most of all the truth.” Winfrey repeated “the truth” and the audience applauded. Shriver appeared on the second of two episodes taped Tuesday night at the United Center.

Last week, Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced they had separated.
