Arnold Schwarzenegger admits that he has a child with one of his household staff

wenn31105611
The Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver divorce just got a lot more scandalous. The (former) Governator just issued a statement acknowledging that he has an over ten year old child with a member of his household staff. Arnold also admitted that he didn’t inform his wife of this fact until after he left office in early January. Plus – the woman who had Arnold’s illegitimate child worked for their family for 20 years and didn’t leave her post until January! This explains why Maria moved out earlier this year. She probably knew and trusted this woman and to learn that both the staff member and Arnold had been hiding the fact that the child was Arnold’s must have been devastating for her. Maria probably even knew the child! We’ve heard plenty of rumors that Arnold was a serial cheater, but this goes beyond all that. It looks like all those blind items were true.

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff, a revelation that apparently prompted wife Maria Shriver to leave the couple’s home before they announced their separation last week.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage. Yet, Shriver moved out of the family’s Brentwood mansion earlier in the year after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the child is his, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger told the Times in a statement that also was sent to The Associated Press early Tuesday. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.

“I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time,” the statement concluded. “While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”

Schwarzenegger’s representatives did not comment further. A spokesman for the former first lady told the Times she had no comment.

The Times did not publish the former staffer’s name nor that of her child but said the woman worked for the family for 20 years and retired in January.

In an interview Monday before Schwarzenegger issued his statement, the former staffer said another man – her husband at the time – was the child’s father. When the Times later informed the woman of the governor’s statement, she declined to comment further.

The child was born before Schwarzenegger began his seven-year stint in public office.

Shriver stood by her husband during his 2003 gubernatorial campaign after the Los Angeles Times reported accusations that he had a history of groping women. Schwarzenegger later said he “behaved badly sometimes.”

In his first public comments since the couple announced their breakup, Schwarzenegger said last week that he and Shriver “both love each other very much.”

“We are very fortunate that we have four extraordinary children and we’re taking one day at a time,” he said at a Los Angeles event marking Israeli independence. Their children range in age from 13 to 21.

Since his term as California governor ended in early January, Schwarzenegger, 63, has hopscotched around the world, his wife nowhere in sight. While the “Terminator” star appeared confident about the future since exiting politics, cutting movie deals and fashioning himself as a global spokesman for green energy, Shriver, known for her confidence, seemed unsettled.

Shriver, 55, maintained her own identity when her husband entered politics, though she gave up her job at NBC. Their union was often tested in Sacramento, where the former action star contended with a rough seven years of legislative gridlock, a budget crisis and lingering questions about his fidelity.

The tabloids really missed the boat on this one. The Enquirer ran a story last week that Maria caught Arnold cheating in 2001 with an actress named Gigi Goyette, but I’m sure there were plenty of others. Maria is also said to have been upset that Arnold was making movies again after promising that he’d spend time with his family after he left the Governor’s office. Plus she gave up her career as a TV journalist to support Arnold, never knowing that he had a a child outside their marriage.

Can you imagine learning that your husband was not only carrying on an affair for years, in your house, with someone you knew and trusted, but that he had a child with her? I want to say that I hope Maria takes Arnold’s ass to the cleaners, but that’s not going to make a difference. She’s wealthy in her own right and getting a chunk of his money might not help ease the pain and disappointment at all.

This makes me wonder why Arnold went public at this point though. Was the woman demanding a payoff? Did Maria put him up to it? I doubt she would want to make this public knowledge. The LA Times broke this story and interviewed the woman, so maybe Arnold thought he should own up to it before it hit the press.

    Wow, what a bombshell. Wonder if he was on the set of “X Men:First Class”.

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    Shameful. And disgusting. What a pig.

    *waves @brin*

  3. mel says:

    We shouldnt be surprised. Infidelity has become the norm in American marriages. Dont think for a minute that your husband wouldnt cheat. The sh**t happens.

    I feel bad for Maria and the kids but that women continued to work in the house while pregnant with Arnold’s child. He could have paid her to leave. I hope Maria wipes his bank account clean although like CB said money wont console the pain and embarassment.

  4. mdf says:

    WTF is up with the flower belt, biker chain, and skull ring?
    What a douche bag.

  5. Ruby says:

    ‘It’s not a tumor!!!!!!’ No it’s just an illegitimate child. Who would sleep with him? Seriously, I know he was mr universe. But dont body builders have small dongs? Like really small ones. He is a big ‘girlie man’ for hiding something like this from his wife. Idiot. He us such a walking punch line let the puns begin!
    @brin- lol!
    On a sad note- Poor Maria :(

  6. Jezi says:

    This IS beyond disturbing. Both Arnold and the housekeeper make me sick. What a double betrayal. I wish the best for Maria and hope she finds happiness.

  7. Vanessa says:

    Wow. Slimeball – not only did he cheat on her but he humiliated her by having the woman in their home for 20 years! Maria probably bought the woman a baby gift etc. How horrible. This is a new low.

  8. Lantana says:

    I find it hard to believe Maria didn’t know. I think there’s some kind of deal behind the scene.

  9. Judy says:

    He’s ugly…not aging well at all. (And ugly on the inside as well.)

  10. Crash2GO2 says:

    Disgusting.

  11. Hautie says:

    I am just surprise that there is only one child out there.

    I give her credit for not killing him on the spot.

    I wonder how hard Oprah is trying to get that exclusive interview. Since her and Maria are bff’s.

    But sadly this is a long line of men who treated their wife’s like crap.

    And it does give credence to all the womanizing rumors, that have been rampant for the last two decades.

  12. carrie says:

    OMG it’s a HUGE scandal

  13. Luci says:

    I don’t have mercy for women who leave their careers for their men. Schwarzenegger is a major cheater, Maria Shriver knew what was going on, and she was ok with it for a very long time (too long). I don’t think she is a victim here.

  14. dink says:

    congratulations arnie. you live your life to the max.

  15. tracking says:

    He is such a tool. Vile.

  16. what a joke says:

    …so marriage needs to be protected from the gays?! Sounds like the straights are the ones destroying oh so “sacred” marriage. Hypocrites.

  17. Peachy says:

    ummmm yeah, that would break a 25 yr marriage. Who would want that old man creepin up your skirt? Yuk. Best wishes to Arnie and the hired help (rolls eyes)

  18. Vickyb says:

    Wow. That’s a bit of a bombshell. We don’t get a lot of gossip about him over here (in UK) but it doesn’t hugely surprise me – rich, powerful men (even if they do have a bad dyejob and are Republican) will always manage to get female attention. But to keep her on the staff and not discreetly is stupid. And to keep this from his wife until after he left office shows that his political career meant much more to him than his marriage.

  19. brin says:

    Hi bellaluna! I’ll see you on a future Lindsay post (maybe later today).

  20. Quest says:

    OMG…a spritz of Arnold’s extra-marital affairs with my tea is all I needed to vomit today.

  21. the_blonde_one says:

    So having one stay at home wife wasn’t enough? He needed two women in his house that did nothing but have his babies, clean his skidmarks and fuck him? he’s such a peach.

  22. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “I want to say that I hope Maria takes Arnold’s ass to the cleaners, but that’s not going to make a difference.”

    oh, but it will. with men like this, you have to hit them in the only place they understand – THE WALLET.

    must be so devastating for Maria, but she clearly put up with his straying for a long time before finally pulled the plug.

  23. Lisa Turtle says:

    Disgracing himself and his family, well into his middle age.

    Arnold should realize, now is the moment to gracefully bow out of public life.

    He’s had a good run. He got 63 years of fan support. Turns out he didn’t deserve much of that fan support.

    Now the truth is out. He really is the skeevy groping old bastard that the National Enquirer has been saying he is.

  24. OXA says:

    My sympathy goes to Maria and the poor kids who have been betrayed by Arnold.
    How do they get their heads around the fact that the personal integrity a parent demands of them has none of his own.

  25. Esmom says:

    Ugh, this sadly confirms my ongoing suspicion throughout their marriage that he was not worthy of her.

    And now he’s going be returning to movies and the big paychecks that go along with them? Sickening.

    I’m confident that a new chapter for Maria, with love, respect and dignity, is on the horizon for her. I say good riddance to Arnold. Although I’m sure she already knows that :)

  26. haa says:

    Shut it people, Arnie is an Alpha male and people like him need to spread their precious seed for the good of humanity.

  27. You don't say says:

    This is the same “Republican of the future” that these same republicans wanted to change the citizenship rules for..and insisted that President Obama prove his citizenship? Also, ten years and counting!?! The tabloids need to do better research and stop making up stories about some people as the truth about others is much juicier.

  28. Blue says:

    That’s sad and gross. He makes my skin crawl. But then some women will sleep with any man if they have money. Yuck I feel ill. This was definitely the straw that broke the camel’s back. I mean how much could the woman take. All those years defending his sorry ass. Then get slapped in the face with this. She was a fool to give up so much for him, when he clearly never did the same. If you can’t fully commit then stay a bachelor.

  29. P.M. says:

    No Arnold I don’t think Maria “loves you very much.” I hope it took days to recover from the crotch kicking she gave you.

  30. Elizabeth says:

    @ what a joke
    Same sex marriage has been legal for years here in Canada. I always thought it was unfair that straight couples who knew each other for a week could marry but gays together for 25 years couldn’t.

  31. Vee says:

    What a disgusting pig!

  32. Justaposter says:

    You don’t say.. douchiness comes on all sides of the political lines.

    Back on topic.

    OH HOLY SNAP GET ME SOME BISQUICK!

    I was not expecting this type of story from their split.

  33. crab says:

    @ mel, you are so right!! I have to laugh when I hear women say my man would never cheat!

  34. Eve says:

    Hilarious banner picture.

  35. ladybert62 says:

    I feel sad for Maria – wonder if the child looks like arnie or the mother – poor kid as this is coming out and the kid will be identified sooner or later. Arnie has dropped to the bottom of the good opinion barrel on this one – he is a scumbag – I am glad she left and hope she does not go back – dont believe any of his promises Maria!

  36. Wif says:

    I feel just horrible for that 10 year old. The poor thing. Imagine suddenly finding out that your dad’s not your dad, but Arnold is (!!!!!!!!!!), and then getting freaking hounded by the tabloids (because you know they’ll find him/her.) Poor, poor thing, that asked for none of this.

  37. Jay B. says:

    Hey, if this is what a Governor can do, I want to be a Governor too! I would cheat on my wife, father a child and then she would still love me! Neat!

    I hate to think (nah, I love thinking about it) what the situation would be like if he was still in office. And he could wear those hillarious glasses too.

    Jay

  38. Eve says:

    @ Ladybert62:

    We have a quote (using quite rude words, won’t type it here) in Brazil that states that an illegitimate kid will always resemble the father, as in to show the community/society who cheated on their wives.

  39. tanya says:

    What an asswipe, but I guess it was kind of a ‘duh’ in the making… I always got cheating douchebag vibes from him.

  40. anonymous says:

    A leopard don’t change it’s spots (Arnold) but what kind of woman would commit such an act with her employer’s husband in their house,and is able to look her female employer in the eye every day, why didn’t she leave?

  41. xxodettexx says:

    gross

    that is all i have for this non-shocking story about infidelity in the rich and famous… i’d be more shock to learn about a politician or celebrity that DIDNT cheat, ever…

  42. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “douchiness comes on all sides of the political lines”

    while this is true, it’s the GOP who wanted to change the citizenship rules so Ahnuld could run for that office. (and it was the GOP who was questioning Obama’s citizenship.) it is the GOP who preaches “family values!” during every election cycle, all the while f-ng their staffers and cheating on their wives and tap dancing in airport bathrooms.

    this is not to say that democrats don’t cheat on their wives, but they sure as hell aren’t out there crying about the downfall of our puritanical society like the GOP are.

    it’s not the douchieness, it’s the hypocrisy.

  43. Sassy says:

    Can hardly wait for the entire story to unfold. Will the maid be interviewed, will there be pictures of her and child? Will she write a book? Will Maria write a book and/or give an interview to Oprah?
    Enquiring minds need to know! And as for Arnold’s behavior – not surprising at all.

  44. tapioca says:

    @Eve: That brings to mind Lucas Morad (Mick Jagger), Damien Hurley (Steve Bing) & Anna (Boris “5-seconds” Becker) – 3 kids who’s fathers denied paternity and who could not have looked more like them!

  45. Your mama says:

    Ok I get it that cheating happens but this is way more than that!!! I agree w/ CB.

    PIG!

  46. Eileen says:

    Wow-this one was a shocker for me. I’d never heard of his infidelities. I’ve never been fun of a fan but I thought they had a somewhat solid marriage. I’d be PISSED if I put my career on hold to be a political wife only to find out he was boning our housekeeper. Unbelievable.

  47. Eve says:

    @ Tapioca:

    Exactly! The theory (from our quote) may be an “urban legend” but from what I’ve seen in my life, ten out of ten of these kids indeed look like their fathers. And Luciana Gimenez (this is how we call her here) is one of the biggest famewhores in Brazil — her own mother said during an interview (regarding her pregnancy of Jagger’s baby): “She’s going to make a lemonade out of this lemon”.

  48. TQB says:

    Disgusting, but I do admire a public figure who can issue a good apology. Take note, other sleazy idiots, it goes: “I’m sorry, this is all my fault, pay attention to me the sleaze and leave the people I have hurt alone” not “if my wife had really loved and understood me I wouldn’t have banged all those chicks.”

  49. azurea says:

    Hmmm….I wonder what kind of children’s book Maria will write to explain this, another one of life’s classic moments.

  50. RHONYC says:

    this makes Jesse James look almost forgivable.

    his side piece’s bastard in her own damn house.

    vergüenza.

    smmfhh! :-(

  51. junipergreen says:

    So she was in the house every day for ten years with the woman with whom her husband secretly had a child. Oh my GOD. That is the worst betrayal ever. I can’t even imagine what she felt when she realized she interacted daily with the mother of her husband’s secret child.

    It was bad enough to have the affair and the child, but to have the woman work in the home you share with your WIFE?!

    Wow.

  52. dorothy says:

    All respect for him just went down the tubes. Horrible that he waited till his term as Governor was up so as not to rock the image of the ‘happy family’ with the voters. What a scum bag.

  53. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Not a shocker coming from a man who was caught on tape saying “eating isn’t cheating.” VOM!

  54. nic says:

    He’s cute ;)

  55. Dana M says:

    What a d-bag. I feel terrible for his wife and children….Even the illegitimate child. Just aweful!
    I wonder too if AS was being blackmailed which is why he had to come clean.

  56. guesty says:

    Omg.

  57. Dorothy says:

    He should NOT run for ANY other offices much less run down the street for that matter. The staffer is just as guilty because she was trusted by Maria and she screws around with him and now a child. I have empathy for the child and the Schwarzenegger kids! I agree @esblondie- weak men cheat and weak women enable them!
    WHAT AN A$$$!!

  58. Kathy says:

    Hollywood should get rid of this scum

  59. esblondie says:

    “Weak men cheat, and weak women help them.”

    Not sure who’s the woman in this statement for this situation – Maria or the staffer – probably both.

  60. Nancy says:

    POS!!!!!!

  61. Dudette says:

    What a horrendous betrayal. Poor Maria. I hope she doesn’t even think about getting back with this jerk.

  62. Bee says:

    @Eve and Tapioca I read somewhere children will strongly resemble their fathers for the first year of their lives. Scientist say this occurs so men will know their children are theirs and provide for them. It’s like nature’s version of DNA testing. So, you’re both right. I’ve also noticed most babies look like their dads initially too. Later, they might look more like the mom. Nicole Richie’s babby Harlow was the spitting image of Joel at first. Now, she looks like a mixture of both of them.

  63. Cheyenne says:

    Republican family values at work!

  64. Mizz Tickles says:

    Now Maria can have a good ole wine chat with Shania & Arnold and Jesse James can talk about the skanks they’ve shagged over the years.

  65. dread pirate cuervo says:

    What a fucking pig. Saw this on the news this morning & was really surprised/disappointed for some reason.

  66. bluhare says:

    This suprised even me, and I think all those guys cheat, their wives know and turn a blind eye as long as there’s discretion. Lainey thinks Maria knew and waited until he was out of office and her parents were gone to do something about it. I can see the parents thing — I wouldn’t want to upset my dad right now either — but out of office? Get rid of her other factor, and I’ve had busted that news right out of the frickin’ mansion.

    But I think this was pushed by a paper getting wind of it. Makes me wonder why. My guess is the retired worker didn’t get what she thinks is enough money.

  67. OXA says:

    Never mind Will smith & Jada phucket,I would like to see Maria Shriver be Oprah’s final guest.
    She can tell her truth, be done with it and move on to her new life with her held high.

  68. skinanny says:

    I have always known he is a disgusting guy. Forget his rotten behavior, how about the poor kid who is now learning, that the man he thought was his father, is really not his father and that this “pig” is really your father?

  69. Dany says:

    Oh poor Maria and kids.
    I don’t get it. These guys always seem to have it all. A gorgeous wife, healthy children, a career, power and lots of money. But it never seems to be enough.

    Can’t wait until he blames his wife’s family for giving him this underdog feeling all these years … that his wife was just too tough and too strong for him… that this was the only way for him to feel like a man… YOU KNOW?! Yuck. One idiot more. Hasta la vista sperminator.

  70. dudslove says:

    that first pic just cracks me up — thanks CB!

  71. Lauren says:

    I am not surprised at all. Arnold is a narcassistic womanizer. He married Maria because she is linked to the Kennedy family, and fulfill his ambition to be a political figure.

    Now he is back making movies. Maria must have been delusional if she thought Arnold would slow down and spend more time with his family. Arnold started out as a bodybuilder..he loves to be the centre of attention & admired.
    Arnold will always be a douche, albeit morphing now into a egomaniacal geriatric douche.

  72. Hmmm says:

    He’s sorry???? Cheap words. The only way he can prove it is by giving Maria most of his money.

    What gall! He kept the mistress in the house WITH their kid and he says he very much loves Maria????? Geeze. Ten years of hurt that she can look back on. Ten years of spitting in her face, having his cake and eating it too. Tens years of mortification to think about. I’d take him for everything and never speak to him again.

    What a little man.

  73. P.J. says:

    I feel sorry for all of the children involved. They are innocents who were not only betrayed, but they will have to bear the burden of this scandal for the rest of their lives.

  74. Rosanna says:

    Ladies… Maria hooked up with him while he was in another relationship! It’s NOT that she didn’t know it is a wrong thing to do, eh!

  75. ZenB says:

    I feel sorry for the kids. I wish Maria had walked sooner. The child is just proof of an act she knows happened many, many, many times before and since. She was raised a Kennedy so I guess she thought she could accept it. Normal behavior for the men in her family. I hope Kathleen and her other kids were not raised to be accepting of things like that. Maria walked but it may have been too late for Kathleen.

    I am not sure if Kathleen is the only daughter or there are others. I know there is a son, Patrick who I hope does not inherit the Kennedy habits either (especially since it seems to run on both sides of his family).

  76. DGO says:

    Who didn’t know he was a player?

  77. Lisa Turtle says:

    This reminds me of a great article I read the other day that said 90% of men who deny paternity when the woman is sure that its theirs are wrong. The study used statistics from online paternity send away kits.

  78. Ron says:

    Oh my god, I’ll die. THE HELP?

  79. Mary Jane says:

    Guess Shania’s 15-minutes is up…

  80. original kate says:

    is anyone surprised by this? anyone?

    *crickets*

  81. Iggles says:

    This is from an article on AP:

    In a Twitter posting Tuesday, Patrick Schwarzenegger, 17, said: “some days you feel like s—, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet i love my family till death do us apart.” He signed his tweet “Patrick Shriver.”

    Yeah, his family is pissed! They have the right to be! Arnold is trash!

  82. Hakura says:

    @Celebitchy“This makes me wonder why Arnold went public at this point though. Was the woman demanding a payoff? Did Maria put him up to it? I doubt she would want to make this public knowledge. The LA Times broke this story and interviewed the woman, so maybe Arnold thought he should own up to it before it hit the press.”

    It’s possibly in response to someone’s attempt at blackmail. Arnold has kept his mouth shut for 10 years, when the woman *worked* in their household for 20 years. I can’t see him offering the info (knowing it would end his marriage & make him look like a complete bastard) to Maria out of ‘guilt‘ =\

    I wonder if Arnold at least financially supported the child (which would have been easy to hide, by using the mother’s paychecks, from her household employment.) This guy is a real piece of work. He apologized to his family, to his 4 children… He should have also apologized to the other child. I wonder if the mother ever told her husband that the child wasn’t his… Before this came out. What a mess.

    Off topic, but I can help but wonder. After all the years that Arnold *lived* on steroids, how much can he really have going on ‘down there’ anyway?

  83. Catherine says:

    I feel bad for Maria. She is such a kind lady who is so giving to others.

  84. slim27 says:

    but every man cheats. not a suprise. there is not a single living man who can ever stay faithfulll to any one woman, no matter how much he loves her. get with the programme.!

  85. Jaxx says:

    @Bee–I have noticed this phenominon many times myself. It’s so odd, and I agree, it must be nature’s way of making sure Dad is pleased with his offspring and sticks around.

  86. sandy says:

    sorry, not surprised, he has been doing this kind of thing for years, but to keep that employee on afterward is just horrible, why did she stay there?, he had to pay her, she had money to leave, they are both the lowest scum on earth. it’s disgusting.

  87. Nibbi says:

    between this and the dominique strauss-kahn explahHOSion rocking the country i am in, i kind of can’t handle any more old-man sex-scandal grossness. bleeeghhhh i have to go some yoga poses now or something people to try to purify myself of the instinct to dismiss all men as swine. i know that isn’t fair, but it just seems like lately (personal life, acquaintances, everywhere i look on newsstands, tv…) people are just disgusting self-indulgent hypocrites and that maybe we aren’t so damn evolved from the apes after all.
    hell, maybe at least the animals are straightforward with it. we’ve gotta put on airs and act like we’re higher beings, have values, can control our biological instincts…
    ack!
    (frantically starts trying to breathe thru nostrils, purify spirit, moves into downward-facing dog pose…
    )

  88. truthzbetta says:

    The worst. I wish Maria hadn’t covered for him, she knew more than she let on and went out of her way to shut down the rumors eight years ago when he was running for office and the groping scandals came out. Even Bill Maher said at the time she was doing the Kennedy wife routine. She very much helped the public not know his family facade was a sham. She said she knew “the right thing” was to leave him before but she wanted to wait until he left office. The right thing would have been to not cover for him with the public because the public deserves to know if the idiot is a massive tool.

    Now on to the main event: King Douche. Conan the Family Destroyer. Arnie was still probably lying his ass off to her and even she was blindsided by the extent of his douchiness. His wife must have learned something even she didn’t know to finally walk. A kid in your wife’s house, so low, Conan, so low. There must be a lot more asshole behavior where this came from.

    Too much betrayal. This guy built his whole global image on a family friendly super hero facade– so it was all a sham. We now know it, and I’m beyond disappointed. Sadness. Go away forever, Arnie. You are not worthy. You fooled us far too long as is.

  89. Madison says:

    Nothing surprising about this news. The Kennedy women seem destined to end up with cheaters. I don’t doubt Arnie has had numerous affairs throughout the years and Maria knew but looked the other way, because of the kids, her parents and their public image. It seems too convenient that now Arnie is no the longer the Governor the news of the separation is quickly followed by the news of the mistress and illegitimate child. The cynic in me questions whether Maria’s decision to leave the marriage was because she only now found out about the affair and child or because it was about to become public knowledge that her husband is a cheating scumbag with an illegitimate child.

  90. Amanda G says:

    I feel bad for the kid whose been denied for 10 years and who thought someone else was his biological father. Shame on Arnold and that woman!

  91. Kelly says:

    The child was passes off as her husband’s – wonder if he knew.

  92. P.J. says:

    @Madison — The timing is probably not a coincidence. Friends of Maria said she had been unhappily married for a long time, but was waiting to leave until her parents passed on and Arnold’s term as governor was over. This seems credible since Sargent Shriver died and AS’s term was over in January. Her parents were strict Catholics and didn’t believe in divorce.

    I also feel bad for the ‘other kid’; I mean, arnold is apologizing, and it’s like he is apologizing that his ‘extra child’ exists!

    Everyone is quick to skewer jude law over not seeing his one night stand baby….and poor baby, etc.

    But I feel for this kid-it’s his dad after all, just as much as the kids he had with m aria.

    I feel badly for ALL the kids/family.
    You would think he would resemble arnie? i’m surprised noone questioned it before….

    Disgusting is right.

    What a dog

  96. CeeCee says:

    Maria might have let the other indescrepencies slide but if she knew he had a child to someone else all this time, with the Kennedy’s on her side, he would not have been able to humiliate her like that and continue on with his career in politics.

    How shameful and hurtful for this family.

    what a jerk!

    He is just so “skeevy”!

  99. Terri says:

    So I guess this means the gay rumors weren’t true after all. I suppose he could still be bi.

    I’m not too worried about Maria. But I do hope that the other woman and the “other kid” are getting their share.

    This is so sick and disgusting.

    I have no idea how Maria and her (their) children are able to pull themselves together and function normally after learning that they all lived together in a house with such a sick secret.

    This is too sick.

    For 20 years she trusted a woman and gave her a job and all that time both her husband and her…

    AND THEY HAD A CHILD TOGETHER FOR 10 YEARS?!!

    speechless.

    Arnold is so disgusting. Both him and his cheat.

    To work for a married woman and to have sex with her husband, have a child and raise that child all these years.
    What kind of person does that?

  101. really says:

    Arnold is a dipper, his clutch always says DIP DIP! At least he can pay for his love child!

  102. Jag says:

    I’ll never pay to watch another movie of his again.

  103. Dudette says:

    Makes you wonder what the tabloid media were doing that they didn’t get wind of this story earlier. Same with the Tiger Woods story. Instead of printing bs about Brangelina splitting up and the like week in week out, how about giving us some real scoop for a change? Real life is a stranger than fiction it seems.

    Oh and Ahnauld is a complete and total jackass.

  104. Dany says:

    How about a new biography, Arnie?
    A.rnold S.chwarzenegger S.hriver – how do destroy families effectively.

    @ KAISER- are southern boys better behaved then this?
