Ah-nold’s newscaster wife Maria Shriver who used to do a ton of celebrity stories for NBC News and Dateline cites the media circus over the death of Anna Nicole Smith as the reason why she won’t resume her TV career when Schwarzenegger leaves the California Governor’s mansion. “It was then that I knew that the TV news business had changed and so had I,” she told a women’s conference this week. “I called NBC News and told them I’m not coming back.” Shriver has been on an extended leave since Schwarzenegger ran for governor in 2003, then announced in 2004 she couldn’t juggle her work as a journalist with her duties as California’s First Lady.
