New York: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s estranged wife Maria Shriver has taken a shot at the actor on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show.

Shriver put on a brave face when she appeared before a crowd of 15,000 to help celebrate the final episode of Winfrey’s daytime talk show after 25 years.

Taking the stage at Chicago’s United Center, Shriver appeared relatively calm in light of the shocking revelation that husband made just 12 hours earlier, in which he confessed to fathering a child over a decade ago with a female staff member.

"For more than 30 years you have bestowed upon me the most amazing friendship," the New York Daily News quoted her as telling Winfrey, according to UsMagazine.com.

As she continued, Shriver even managed to take a slight jab at her cheating husband.

"You have shown love, support, wisdom, and most of all," she said, before a pause, "the truth."

"Over the years, you have shared that very generous spirit -- you’ve believed in others, so they can believe in themselves," Shriver added.
