Question: As men age, do their facial features tend to morph together? Like, is it just me, or do Quentin Tarantino and Arnold Schwarzenegger, two men who looked nothing alike in their salad days, seem to be turning into the same jowly old man with rubbery skin and elastic, hairy eyebrows?
Arnold Schwarzenegger gave an exclusive interview to “60 Minutes,” in an episode airing last night, to promote his new memoir, Total Recall (clever!). Leslie Stahl needled the former California governor about the many sordid personal details revealed in the book, including his longtime affair with he and wife Maria Shriver’s housekeeper, which resulted in a child. He also discussed the fact that he’d actually cheated many, many times over the years, and that Maria was aware of his infidelities. “I’m not perfect,” Schwarzenegger said dully. No. Shit. Two clips above!
It was only a matter of time before Mildred “Patty” Baena, the woman suspected of carrying Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s love child, talked to the press. She has given her first interview to an unusual source, the UK’s Hello magazine. In the article, Mildred explains that she didn’t know right off the bat that her 13-year-old son, Joseph, was Arnold’s son. “It was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered. It became more apparent as time went on,” she said.
So how did she break the news to Joseph? Keep reading »
It’s been a busy few weeks for political sex scandals. First we found out that Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a love child—well, possibly two—more than 10 years ago without wife Maria Shriver‘s knowledge. And then came Weinergate, in which Democrat Anthony Weiner ‘fessed up to sexting with six women, even sending one of them a picture of his … wiener.
This has us wondering—which political party has the worst sex scandals? After the jump, a highly scientific study*. Keep reading »
Say cheese! Apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger took great joy in getting the entire family together for photo ops — the wife, the kids, the mistress, and the love child. That takes some giant balls right there. I’m wondering if Maria Shriver found this at all strange? Awkward family photo, indeed. [TMZ] Keep reading »
Curiouser and curiouser! TMZ claims that Maria Shriver was the one who leaked the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with a housekeeper because she was angry at the Austrian love guv. Shriver allegedly learned her husband had a child with Mildred Baena in late-April or early-May and was so “hysterical” that she wanted to throw a press conference and publicly shame him. Her pals apparently talked her down from that idea and instead leaked the details to TMZ and The Los Angeles Times. Keep reading »
Like many women before her, Maria Shriver is doing the rounds as the disgraced political spouse. She’s on the cover of People magazine — “Maria’s Broken Heart!” trills the cover line — and she’s a guest on one of Oprah’s very last shows. (In fact, on Tuesday night when the identity of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s mistress and his love child were revealed, Shriver was spotted out on the town with Oprah at dinner.) I would bet money on it that Shriver eventually writes a memoir about this time of her life, like Elizabeth Edwards and Jenny Sanford before her.
Let me be clear: I don’t mean to make light of any heartbreak Maria Shriver and the Schwarzenegger children — they’ve got four, ages 13 to 21 — are most assuredly feeling or of the humiliation of their dirty laundry being aired in the public eye. No one deserves this and I hope they are all as tough as elephant hides as they deal with it.
And yet … I have a hard time feeling sorry for Maria Shriver. Rumors of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infidelity and sexual harassment have been going on for years. Arnold’s wandering penis (and hands) pre-dates his governorship of California, a role that staunch Democrat and Kennedy scion Maria Shriver helped him win. So, while this situation undeniably sucks, I’m not boo-hoo-hooing for her. Keep reading »
It’s hard to imagine that Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s four kids aren’t pretty pissed at him right about now. On Tuesday, Patrick Schwarzenegger, 17, tweeted, “Some days you feel like s**t, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet i love my family till death do us apart.” But on Wednesday, he changed his name on Twitter from Patrick Schwarzenegger to Patrick Shriver. Which certainly signals some anger.
In addition to the possibility that Arnold has two love children with former staff members, the most recent details to come out are pretty terrible. Keep reading »
