New York: If sources are to be believed then, love rat Arnold Schwarzenegger is no longer in demand for a memoir.

According to sources, after the Schwarzenegger’s love child scandal broke, it``s his estranged wife Maria Shriver`s book that publishers are chasing for.

Fresh off his term as governor of California, Schwarzenegger had big plans to preserve his legacy. Insiders said that his lawyers were reviewing fine print on an agreement for a multimillion-dollar memoir deal. Newsweek reported that ‘Ahnuld’ was reading scripts to re-launch his movie career, and searching for a ghostwriter for the book.

But publishers have now said that he``s "untouchable" following the scandal, and that he`s no longer the "sympathetic character" he once was.

"No woman is going to pay to read Arnold``s story through his eyes," the New York Post quoted one publishing source as saying.

"Maria has a story to tell, and she`s a known, best-selling author,” the publishing source added.

Despite the setback, the sources said Schwarzenegger still wants his record-breaking deal, and he`s willing to write a two-volume memoir if that`s what it takes.
