Since leaving the California governor’s office in early January, Arnold Schwarzenegger has sought ways to bring his profile back to the top of the heap in the entertainment industry.
He has definitely succeeded.
The Los Angeles Times has revealed the former “Governator” was playing house with a woman who worked for his family for 20 years and retired in January.
Nothing too unusual about a major Hollywood star/politician cheating, except…
- The former staffer conceived a “little Terminator” with Arnold.
- She claimed another man — her husband at the time — was the child’s father. When the Times later informed the woman of the fact Arnold had let the ten-year-old cat out of the bag, she declined to comment further.
- According to a Times source, Schwarzenegger took financial responsibility for the child from the start and continues to provide child support.
- The revelation apparently prompted Arnold’s wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, to leave the couple’s home before they announced their separation to the world last week.
“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.”
What a typical Hollywood “I cheated, please forgive me” type statement from a beloved icon. Doesn’t Arnold have a spin doctor or two to turn to in his hour of need?
As for this woman, she’s apparently shut her hole. She should have done that ten years ago.
