Carter is interviewed by Shriver for NBC News.

I know how to pick really good people. From great artists to great partners. I call it my ‘West Philly Spidey Senses’.

On women:

I attract really strong women! My wife is CFO of the company and the CFO of the house…and mother of five. My COO is a woman. The president of my company is a woman. I surround myself with really, really strong women.

O Magazine interview

Interview0 Comments

Shriver talks to Winfrey in an interview for O Magazine about making a name for herself in the world and finding her way.

I’d have to find another thing. That’s what I wrote about in the book Just Who Will You Be? I made the mistake of thinking that external accomplishments would bring me peace. I thought it was about the job or a book or making a name for myself. So many people would come up to me and say, Which Kennedy are you? At a very young age, I thought, You’re going to know which one I am. I decided that I was going to be the Kennedy who makes her own name and finds her own job and works like a dog. My comeuppance was when Arnold got elected I became the Kennedy who was married to the governor.

Shriver speaks about being hired as an anchor for CBS Morning News:

Yes, I took the CBS job three weeks after I got engaged to Arnold, and I moved to New York to start working. I was thrilled. Those coanchor morning-show gigs were among the few on the networks that seemed locked down forever.
