Maria Shriver won’t be back

The former California First Lady, married for 25 years to the actor and ex-governor, filed a petition for dissolution of marriage in Los Angeles County Superior Court through her attorney Laura Wasser.
The petition requests that Schwarzenegger and Shriver share joint physical and legal custody of their two minor sons, ages 17 and 13.
Schwarzenegger revealed last month that he had fathered a child more than a decade ago with a longtime member of their household staff.
Shriver moved out of the family’s Brentwood mansion earlier this year after learning about the child.
The staff member worked for the family for 20 years, retiring in January. She lives in Bakersfield with the boy.
