In the wake of Maria Shriver's split from Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the more recent news that he fathered a child out of wedlock, television networks are clamoring to get an interview with Shriver. According to TMZ, Shriver might be talking to Oprah Winfrey, as a guest on her final show.

Today in Chicago, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" is taping its next-to-last episodes, which will air May 23 and 24. The final show will air May 25.

The show is not commenting on final guests, but Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are rumored to be among them.

Update: Shriver has made her first public statement about the news regarding her estranged husband, telling People, "This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment."
