Maria Shriver and Arnold were back in Malibu for the holiday weekend – apart

Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger were each photographed separately in California over the long holiday weekend. Maria was seen hitting the beach with her kids in Malibu, going out to dinner and shopping in Brentwood. She spent the weekend at the family’s home in Malibu with her children. Arnold was seen cruising on his motorcycle in Malibu and trying to act the stud. Arnold recently came back to California from Utah, where he was staying in a home he owns in the Sun Valley Region. (Those of you who commented that he owned a place there were right!)


There are some drips and drabs of news about this scandal, but it’s been relatively quiet in the past few days. TMZ has the news that Arnold’s first known mistress, his family’s longterm housekeeper Mildred Baena, is upset at her family for selling photos and stories about her to the tabloids. Apparently an ex wife of a family member is the person who has been selling out the most, but we’ve also heard from her ex husband and from her daughter. Baena’s daughter told Telemundo that “it’s just a big deal because [her mom is] hispanic and [Arnold] is a celebrity.” The daughter also claimed not to have known that her brother was Arnold’s son until this point. Baena has been in hiding since the scandal broke.

Maria sent out a few tweets in honor of Memorial Day that made a vague reference to the situation she’s going through. She tweeted (in reverse order):

My daughter once gave me a great Plato quote that said, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” I love that. So true.

We don’t know what is going on inside of most people. On this #MemorialDay, when so many are grieving in obscurity or silence, let’s keep that in mind. Be kind so many people are grieving. #MemorialDay

That was really touching. A lot of people are asking what Maria knew and when she knew it. I think she was in the dark for a long time, and I’ve heard that it’s incredibly common for people (i.e. neighbors, friends and coworkers) not to tell the wronged spouse when they know that their partner is cheating on them. No one wants to be the one to break that news, and then it’s often those same people that blame the person who got cheated on for not realizing it sooner. It’s not a cliche that the wronged party is often the last to know.

So how long is it going to be until Maria files for divorce and what other bombshells are going to come out about this mess?

You know who Arnold reminds me of here? Jesse James, that dumbass.

    I’d be in hiding too, if I was a big enough dumbass (married to another man, BTW) to be boffing a MARRIED MAN in the MARITAL HOME in the MARITAL BED under the nose of a woman who had (by all accounts) been very good to me and my children. SKANK.

    And he doesn’t get off either (well, not from responsibility, anyway). He’s a nasty-ass cheater who doesn’t deserve squat from his wife and kids (except their scorn) for being a MARRIED MAN BOFFING THE HIRED HELP in the MARITAL HOME in the MARITAL BED. D!CK.

    Maria and all 5 of the kids have my sympathy.

    (Wow. I guess my “inner bitch” really is out in full force today. Pardon.)

  2. Norah says:

    We once lived in one of a series of row houses that shared a common back yard, many years ago. There was another couple with a young child several houses down, and he was a blatant serial serial cheater. He was a student and home most of the day, and (much younger) women would come and go, usually looking deeply embarrassed. He even slept with another neighbor, who promptly told everyone.

    The whole group of neighbors debated the situation many times: does she know? Should we say something? How could she not know? What would we say?

    It always came to this: if she knows and admits she knows, then she stops being a victim and starts being someone we would look at quite differently, someone who is a doormat to a guy who actively condoned her husband’s douchey behavior. Since she was nice and we liked her, no one was comfortable finding out if this was actually the case.

    And if she didn’t know, who wanted to be responsible for breaking up a family? They had a cute little one and seemed otherwise pretty happy with each other. In the end, none of us had the courage to toss a bomb into the middle of someone’s home. And truthfully we all assumed that one day or another he’d overstep, as Arnold did, and she’d find out anyway.

    It was a weird experience that really taught me that people are far more reluctant to interfere than you might think.

  3. Stacia says:

    He looks like a old guy in a midlife crisis trying to regain/relive his youth by riding on his motocycle trying to impress chics…pathetic.

  4. Luise says:

    He is completely disgustingly gross. He should go into hiding for the rest of his slutmonger life and should lose everything he has.

  5. Micki says:

    @original bellaluna: would you circumcise him up to the tonsils given the chance? LOL
    I’d feed my husband’s a$$ a whole ants’ nest if he ever dares do “Arnold” to me.

  6. Luci says:

    @Norah. So true, I wouldn’t have had the guts either

  7. GeekChic says:

    @the original bellaluna, let your inner bitch sing! I totally agree with everything you said.

    The Plato quote that Maria repeated is actually quite striking. I wish more people would approach life and their interactions with others this way.

  8. Anna says:

    Kaiser, as much of a womanizing douche Arnold is, he deserves credit for taking good care of his illegitimate son and mistress after she bore his lovechild–he could have hung them both out to dry and taken an injunction like I imagine tiger woods and jesse james would do. He may be a bastard, but he isn’t an f’ing bastard.

  9. Marie says:

    Come on, Anna, do you think he had any choice? I’m sure she would have sold her story to the highest bidder plus she would have hired Gloria Allred to get as much of a settlement as possible. Arnold took care of her to take care of himself, IMO.

  10. Wendy City says:

    Celeb is 100% right. If you tell the person that they are being cheated on they will in turn hate you. I had a girlfriend from elementary school! I saw her boyfriend out with another girl. They were obviously on a date. This was before everyone had a cell phone (early 90’s) I went home and called her. He went over her house and got to her before I did. He convinced her that i was just jealous of their relationship. She believed him and we were not friends after that. I would never tell a friend again. Some people don’t believe it until they see it themselves. The only person now i would tell is my sister. No one comes btwn us.

  11. Anna says:

    Hmm Marie you could be right. I don’t know though, surely he could have paid her off and made sure she was financially well kept enough to keep her quiet, but he did take his son on family holidays and treat him like his own child. It just struck me as kind of decent.

  12. PrettyTarheel says:

    It’s such a common feeling. The one time I got up my nerve and told a woman her boyfriend hit on me, it was a freakin’ nightmare. I don’t think I’d ever do it again, but he just made it impossible to ignore. We all speak, but it ended up causing a pretty strong social split. She didn’t call me a liar, but she didn’t dump him either, and it was just freakin’ awkward.
    Everyone assumes the wronged party has to know, or that someone else will tell her. I’ve been on the opposite side, and been the one who was told I was with a lying cheating SOB, and it was really hard for me to take-I wanted sooo badly to blame the messenger.

  13. mln76 says:

    A few months ago I was sick in bed watching 20/20 they did this test where they had a man blatantly cheating on his wife and asking random strangers to cover for him on Skype and tell his wife he was alone. They then repeated the same situation with a woman. Most people lied for the man telling the random wife their husband was alone while no one would cover for the woman….We really haven’t come that far.

  14. Annie says:

    Maria looks hauntingly like her mother here.

  15. Stella says:

    Arnie should have stayed in Idaho. Why come back during a holiday weekend? He’s turned into a creepy stalker chasing after his family. He destroyed his family and should go hide in shame.

  16. sandy#1 says:

    sorry, there is nothing decent about this woman or Arnold, she was his secure side piece, aside from his wife, she is totally delusional if she thought it was anything more,his ego, his man parts is what he was thinking of, the maid was not his only side piece, that should kill all hopes that he cared about her(the maid), which her family is constantly blaming maria for not being there sexually for Arnold. maria treated that maid like family, as it was reported. disturbing/disgusting.

  17. Anon73 says:

    @Norah — I agree. I feel similar about someone’s wife, whose hubby is serial cheater. They also have a small baby. I remember her hubby, before he met and married this woman, used to cheat on his girlfriends. I think he’s more careful to hide it from the wife, but he’s still stepping out on her. With several women. I somewhat feel it’s not my business. And also do not see why she would believe me since I barely know her.

  18. Skuddles says:

    Who gives a shit what Maria knew??? If she did know anything, and I doubt she did, or at least nothing solid, she most likely put the kids and dumbass Arnold’s career ahead of her own feelings. But I’m guessing she only had suspicions, no hard proof, and being that Arnold has demonstrated what a disgusting pig liar he is, I’m sure he managed to convince her anytime she raised a concern that she was just being paranoid and people were merely out to soil his name. He’s pure dogshit. Maria and the children are victims of his horrid behavior, period.

  19. Slim Charles says:

    Oh, Maria, you’re way too old to wear those shoes.

  20. Anguishedcorn says:

    ITA with Charles: my first thought was, “those shoes are tragic.”

  21. Slim Charles says:

    @ Geek Chic #7 If we did approach life that way, I’m afraid none of us would be commenting on this site.

  22. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Nice bike. Doesn’t deserve being ridden by a geriatric looking like he’s about to piss himself. Neither did Mildred Baena for that matter.

  23. Whatever says:

    This non-story is all over the internet. Two divorcing people spent a holiday weekend apart, imagine that. Don’t get why this is even a story.

  24. mimi says:

    ugh – these two are making me sick. They’re a couple of power hungry phonies. There is no way in *ell that Maria didn’t know her husband was messing around on her. All that mattered to these two was that they got the governorship of CA. And they got it..Many women that Maria claims to represent in her bogus women’s empowerment nonsense came forward to speak about Arnold’s creepy behavior towards them. Maria discarded them like yesterday’s trash so she could be First lady of CA. And the son he had with the maid ?? Well, Maria having 4 kids yourself I’m sure you know how babies are made. So if you know your husband is screwing around — yup, there could very well be a baby or two, or three out there. Shock!! Mourning the death of her parents? Yes, very sad – but both lived to a ripe old many of us get to have our parents that long? Sorry, but her martyring act is so annoying. Arnold is a pig – funny how Green Acres associated the two together. Anyway, the timing of this “bombshell” is too coincidental. He’s 63 – past his prime..way past his prime. He’s no longer Maria realizes she has nothing to gain from him anymore…ka BOOM! Now she exacts her revenge…these two both used each other…sick. Poor kids.

  25. skinanny says:

    He is an old mess. He ruined California, and he ruined his marriage, only one good comes out of this….His career in politics is OVER….MORON

  26. Lantana says:

    @Norah – Sooo…did the wife ever find out?

  27. Norah says:

    Don’t know. We (and several others of the group of neighbors) decided that the best solution was simply to move away from it all. I know that they’re still married as my hubby runs into Cheater every now and then. Blows me away.

    I wonder how many people around Maria thought that she was Bred To Smile and Suffer in Silence. The Kennedys are basically American royalty, so the rules of the royals would apply to them, no? After all, look how much Jackie Kennedy put up with.

  28. mimi says:

    Jackie and Maria “put up with it” because there was money and power involved.

  29. really says:

    love love Marias strength! LOVE HER! as for him: PIG on a motorcycle….loser!
