Maria Shriver has terminated her cell phone.
The first lady of California, appearing on the Today Show Monday, endured some good-natured ribbing from NBC’s Matt Lauer, Ann Curry and Al Roker for her miscues last week, when she was caught illegally talking on a phone while driving. (Her husband, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, made talking on a cell phone while driving, without the use of a hands-free device, illegal last year.)
During her segment, Today Show producers zinged her – playing a sound effect of a phone ringing. “I don’t have a cell phone anymore,” she said. “That was clever though, I have to say.”
Shriver, who said she donated her old phone to Verizon to dismantle, joked, “Of all the things I’ve done in my life, this has got the most attention.”
