    This is a shocker. Right up there with the split of Al and Tipper Gore last year. What's the world coming to?

    The only shocker about this is that it didn't happen sooner. There have been rumors for years.

    I have heard that Der Ahnold is known to have a roving eye...

    I'm not surprised. Maria grew up in a family that's used to keeping it together while a spouse holds office. Now that he's private citizen Arnold, there's no longer a need.

    It seems that she has freed herself.

    I always wondered why they got married in the first place. The only thing they had in common was politics and she said that she didn't want him to run for office, so what were they planning to do together?

    Well, somebody had to say it. In the early days, they were a hot-looking, if toothy couple.
    Guess Der Ahnuld found an answer to that musical question, "How do you handle a problem like Maria?". :shuffle:

    I've always thought she was really quite unattractive and I have never been into big muscles so for me they have always grossed me out.

    She looked okay, except for her TKGS (Toothy Kennedy Girl Smile). YMMV. And she has not really aged that well. YMMV 2.

    And I like big muscles. :)

    :confused: Are you often "grossed out" by people you find physically unattractive?

    I think if Maria wasn't so ultra-thin she would have "aged better." I can't remember if it was Grace Kelly or Catherine Deneuve who once said that at a certain age a woman had to decide whether she wanted to maintain her face or her waist and she had chosen her face.

    I've never found anyone in her family, with the semi-exception of her late uncle Robert, remotely attractive, at least as far as blood relatives go. RFK (and, okay, much as it sickens me mentally to even think of it, YOUNG, as in pre-Dallas, Ted) got the only decent looks genes in the family. Their eldest sister Kick was okay but even she had the toothy grin.

    Don't forget JFK, Jr. But that was half Jackie.
    Few of the women were fortunate-looking.

    Eh. I don't generally like curly hair on men, but overall yes, he got his best genes form his mother.

    This is no longer accurate. With the facial fillers on the market plus Botox, you can be as thin as you want.

    It's still accurate for those who don't want to resort to injecting sustances/toxins into their faces. :slinkaway

    So since she is Catholic, is she going to follow the other Kennedy familiy tradition and ask for an annulment?

    I don't think she will unless she wanted to remarry "in the church". I always thought annulments were bizarre when there were children from the marriage.

    Some people like Maria, and Sarah Jessica Parker, have, unfortunately, chosen their waists. Princess Grace got fuller figured near the end of her life, but was still very pretty.

    everything can be a toxin at a wrong dose, including water and Tylenol. Correct use of Botox has a long safety record at higher doses for medical problems before it was used cosmetically. Fillers are all natural substances, some with calcium suspended in water and some with hyaluronic acid.

    But Andora is right--it's quite expensive.

    Aww, but you don't have to get married for that. I thought as a Kennedy she would understand that. Maybe she was rebelling.

    Not when they got married. I remember there being huge :drama: :eek: at the time because he was a staunch Republican and she was from a family of very famous Democrats.

    Some people will not want to inject substances into their face for cosmetic purposes, whether they are "natural" or not. :scream: Obviously, many have quite different preferences.
