Maria Shriver angered by Arnold Schwarzenegger's '60 Minutes' interview (VIDEO)

Arnold Schwarzenegger kept his affair a secret for as long as he could, until his wife Maria Shriver forced him to confess that it had resulted in a child.
Though she is frustrated about not having her views represented, she is reportedly not surprised at the omission.

Maria Shriver is reportedly unhappy that the producers from '60 Minutes' failed to reach out to her for her opinion.

Maria Shriver has remained largely mum about her husband's infidelities, but the poised Kennedy is reportedly not happy at all that his recent "60 Minutes" interview was missing one very important voice: hers.

Shriver, 56, was reportedly approached to comment on the piece, which ran Sunday, after the former California governor's interview had been shot and largely edited, with little room for her to actually give her opinion about the situation.

Sources tell TMZ that the producers wouldn't give Shriver specifics about what Schwarzenegger had said in either the interview or the book, so she firmly asserted that she had "no interest" in giving a generalized comment for the piece.

In an interview with '60 minutes' that is scheduled to air Sunday, Schwarzenegger says the affair he had with longtime housekeeper Mildred Baena, that led to a son, was 'the stupidest thing,' he ever did to then-wife Maria Shriver.

According to one source, "The piece is a blow j-- for Arnold. Lesley Stahl just fawned over him."

Shriver has thus far not read the book, and wasn't given an advance copy from her husband of 25 years.

"She knows the book is a big PR stunt to get back in the public's good graces," a friend of Shriver's told TMZ. "What Maria has already been through ... nothing surprises her anymore."

Earlier this month, clips from Schwarzenegger's interview, pegged to his tell-all memoir, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," revealed the extent of the former bodybuilder's infidelities, and his remorse.

"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship," he says on the the "60 Minutes" interview. "It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids.

"She knows that it's about my whole life and that I would not write a book and kind of leave out that part and make people feel like, 'Well, wait a minute. Are we just getting a book about his success stories and not talk about his failures?'"
