In Part 2 of "Extra's" exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey, she denied rumors that her close friend Maria Shriver may be doing a new show on OWN.
"That is not true," Oprah told "Extra" correspondent AJ Calloway. "Maria Shriver is getting herself, her life, her family -- she's pulling that all together for herself. She's doing just fine. She does not want to come work for me."
"Extra" caught up with Maria Shriver, who attended the launch of the California Arts Council Create a State Campaign, a cause which aims to save arts education in California through the sale of specialized arts license plates.
The organization's goal is to raise at least $40 million, and Shriver explained, "It's really easy... you have to have a license plate and with one sign of your name and one check, you can change another human's life."
Oprah's good friend Maria Shriver will NOT be taking Rosie O'Donnell's place in a new show, according to an OWN spokesperson. The network rep told "Extra," "We love Maria, however, there are no plans with her at this time to do a show for OWN."
A recent report claimed Oprah was ready to give Shriver a reality show, and since Maria's children are almost out of the house, with the exception of Christopher, it would be feasible for Shriver to venture into a new project. The report also claimed Winfrey offered to have the show tape in L.A., so the former California First Lady could be close to her family.
"Extra's" Mario Lopez met with former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger at The Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio for an exclusive one-on-one.
Schwarzenegger, still recovering from arm surgery, said he still sees his ex, Maria Shriver, explaining, "We work together even though we're going through a divorce," adding, "Luckily, Maria has been a terrific mother."
Despite reports of second thoughts, Maria Shriver is proceeding with a divorce from estranged hubby Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"The reports of a reconciliation are not true," a source close to the family told People.com.
Amid reports Maria Shriver may be considering reuniting with estranged hubby Arnold Schwarzenegger, the two spent Christmas together with their four children, Katherine, Christina, Patrick and Christopher.
A source close to the family told People.com they "had a really nice time" over the holiday and said Shriver and Schwarzenegger also attended the Los Angeles Lakers' season opener at Staples Center on Sunday.
Although Maria Shriver split with her estranged husband Arnold Schwarzenegger in May, after he admitted to fathering a love child, Shriver could be considering reconciliation with the former California governor.
The 56-year-old former journalist and mother of four has reportedly told friends that she is having second thoughts, TMZ reports, partly because of her strong religious beliefs that do not include divorce, which Shriver filed for in July.
