Tomorrow "60 Minutes" plans on airing an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger on his upcoming tell-all book that includes juicy details about his love child with his maid Mildred Baena.One person who is pretty understandably pissed about the interview is Maria Shriver, according to TMZ. Sources told the site that no one from "60 Minutes" bothered to give Shriver a call or ask for her take on her philandering husband until after the interview wrapped this week.

Some of Shriver's friends got a call earlier this Monday from the show to see if she had a general comment about the book after the interview wrapped, but the producer didn't offer up any specifics about what was addressed in the interview. Shriver decided she didn't want to comment at all under the circumstances, especially given that she sees his memoir and its promotion as a campaign to improve his image.

One source told TMZ, "The piece is a blow job for Arnold. Lesley Stahl just fawned over him."

Shriver has been telling her friends that she doesn't feel have much of an interest in reading the book "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story"—and Schwarzenegger didn't offer her an advance copy anyway. Details about the book have been leaking out in anticipation of its release on Monday. In one section, Schwarzenegger describes how Shriver confronted Schwarzenegger about his love child with their maid Mildred Baena.
