(Newser) – With Arnold Schwarzenegger's new tell-all coming out Monday, 60 Minutes shot a segment with the former Governator—and Maria Shriver is none too pleased, TMZ reports. In fact, sources say she flatly turned down the show's producers when they called her after Arnold's interview. She had "no interest" in squeezing a generic comment into a piece focused on him. "The piece is a blow *** for Arnold," a source says. "Lesley Stahl just fawned over him."

What's more, Arnold never advanced her a copy of the book, which "she knows ... is a big PR stunt to get back in the public's good graces." Click here for an excerpt of Stahl's interview, due to air tomorrow, in which Arnold calls his love-child affair with former housekeeper Mildred Baena "the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship." Asked how Maria feels, he says, "I think Maria is, you know, wishing me well with everything that I do." (Read more Arnold Schwarzenegger stories.)
