Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, who split in 2011, may or may not be getting back together, but they're certainly in no rush to get a divorce.

Even though all of the money and custody issues have been worked out, neither one has filed paperwork to go before a judge and make it official.

The reason, insiders say, is simple. There are 400 million reasons, actually.

Arnold, Maria

Arnold and Maria, who split after his love child with Mildred Patricia Baena became public, agreed to split their gigantic net worth down the middle.

When we're talking $200 million apiece, and an amicable parting of ways, it's not like a legal divorce will make a big difference in their daily lives.

Is Maria Shriver returning to the Today show?

That's the rumor going after the former NBC fixture reported from the Vatican on the program this week, leading the network to explore a permanent deal.

The question is whether she's interested.

Shriver, Maria Pic

Maria may tease (and give a ratings boost) to NBC by coming on occasionally for big stories like the Papal coverage, but beyond that, her role is unclear.

Shriver has turned down overtures from NBC and other networks in the past, and simply may not want a daily gig because she doesn't need the money.

The former wife of Arnold Schwarzengger is deeply invested in her charity work and raising their four kids, and has a net worth of at least $100 million.

Basically, she's reluctant to get back into the daily grind of TV news, no matter how badly NBC might want her to replace Matt Lauer's tanking Q rating.

Exhale, Matt.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's new book and 60 Minutes' piece on him are not sitting well with his estranged wife Maria Shriver, with a source close to her calling it a huge "blow j-- for Arnold."

Maria's main beef, besides the whole Mildred Patricia Baena love child thing? That 60 Minutes never contacted her for comment on Arnold's new memoir Total Recall.

According to TMZ, producers called friends of Maria last Monday, after Schwarzenegger's 60 Minutes interview was shot, to see if she had a general comment about it.

The producer wouldn't give specifics about what The Expendables 2 actor said in the interview, however, or the book - which she hasn't even seen a copy of.

Promoting his new autobiography on 60 Minutes, Arnold Schwarzenegger discusses his betrayal of Maria Shriver ... sort of. That's not a word he would use apparently.

Watch this preview of his sit-down with CBS' Lesley Stahl, airing Sunday:

"She gave up her television career for you," the journalist said of Maria, who Arnold cheated on (and had a love child) with housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena.

"I mean, wow, was this the most unbelievable act of betrayal to Maria?"

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are reportedly in couples therapy in a bid to save their marriage. Can California's former first couple pull it off?

The pair, who split in 2011 after news broke that Arnold fathered a secret child with their housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, has been married 26 years.

Apparently that's more than reason enough for the couple to make a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, according to Thursday’s New York Post.

Sources told the Post that the devoutly Catholic Shriver can’t bear the thought of divorce, while The Terminator star realizes the gravity of his mistake.

“Arnold is desperate to save the marriage; he and Maria are having counseling to work through their issues to get back together,” a friend told the paper.

“Maria is a devout Catholic and doesn’t believe in divorce, but is still struggling with the profound heartbreak and humiliation she endured by him.”

“He is promising the moon and telling Maria he has completely changed his ways. All of Maria’s friends are warning her to be careful, saying he’ll never change."

“Arnold is going all out to win her back, mostly because he feels bad and he can't live without her, and partly because he has no political clout without her."

"Winning her back would be the best way to show the world he has been forgiven for his transgressions,” said the supposed insider to the Post.

Think they'll get back together? Should they?

There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are getting along much better these days, but don't bank on a reconciliation in their marriage - rings or no rings.

While Internet reports that Shriver is wearing a suspicious ring on her finger fueled rumors of them getting back together, there's a different explanation.

The ring on Shriver's left hand is actually her late mother's. Shriver has been wearing the engagement ring since Eunice Kennedy Shriver's death in 2009.

As for rumors that Shriver is having second thoughts about divorcing Schwarzenegger, due to her religious beliefs, a source close to the couple denies it.

"The reports of a reconciliation are not true," says the source.

The former couple, who announced their separation after 25 years, still spend quality time as a family with kids Katherine, Christina, Patrick and Christopher.

They announced their separation last year after Shriver learned Arnold knocked up their longtime housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena - over a decade ago.

Most recently, Shriver and Schwarzenegger enjoyed Christmas with the kids in L.A., and attended the L.A. Lakers' season opener game that afternoon.

While it appears their divorce is still on, "Arnold and Maria will always come together when it comes to supporting and loving their children," says an insider.

Maria Shriver is now unsure if she wants to divorce Arnold Schwarzenegger.

According to sources close to the couple, Shriver is torn about whether to proceed with the split, partly because of her strong religious beliefs that do not include divorce, and for even more obvious reasons - the couple's four children.

Moreover, Arnold still desperately wants Maria back, and has been "extremely sweet" to her, making numerous gestures (including presents) to try to win Maria back.

The Expendables 2 star, for his part, has been hoping to reconcile from the moment the couple split, though it looked like a lost cause, given his infidelities.

Maria filed for divorce on July 1, though she moved out months earlier. She's already bought a mansion in Brentwood, Calif., which she's in the process of renovating.

Shriver was reportedly unhappy for years, but the revelation that Arnold had a love child with housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena years ago was the last straw.

Or was it? Stay tuned.
