According to Page Six, the holder of $100 million net worth Shriver found two houses across the street from one another near the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles—one costing over $2 million, the other over $3 million—but eventually withdrew her bid because the prices were getting too high.

Page Six quotes an "insider" as saying,

Maria was doing the shopping, looking for Patrick and his older sister so they would be close to each other in a good, safe neighborhood. Although it proved unfruitful in the end— they'll be back.

Regardless of the turmoil in Maria and Arnold's relationship, the pair's maintained a good relationship with their kids, providing them everything they require for a healthy growing up.

Arnold has a love child Joseph Baena, who is an exact lookalike of the former governor of California. The actor hid the relationship for years because of which he has a problematic relationship with his children, as they are reluctant to accept their stepbrother.

While Baena continuously tries to be in touch, but Schwarzenegger's ignore his efforts, more specifically the half-sisters.

We hope these half-siblings find their way to come together as one and show support for each other. And that's the only thing we can hope for now.
