Maria is just one of many fans on Oprah’s final show, and she takes the time to send a major diss to husband Arnold!

Maria Shriver is not sitting around and feeling sorry for herself following the news that husband Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered possible multiple love children, and is instead putting on a calm and strong front. The 55-year-old took to what may quite possibly be the biggest possible stage to make her first public appearance following her splitOprah Winfrey‘s farewell episode!

Maria, looking stunning in a blue dress, walked out with Oprah, showing no signs of her recent marital woes, and said to the talk show host: “For more than 30 years you have bestowed upon me the most amazing friendship. You have shown love, support, wisdom, and most of all, the truth.” The final words seemed to be a clear dig at Arnold as Maria paused after uttering them as Oprah tightly squeezed her hand.

New reports are now claiming that Oprah is eyeing Maria for a show on her recently launched network, OWN. In fact, Maria’s appearance on the farewell show had been long in the works and was not a last second decision.

Other guests on hand for the star studded finale included Madonna, Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Dakota Fanning, Usher, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Halle Berry and, of course, BFF Gayle King.
