Yesterday, The Los Angeles Times gave us several details about the woman with whom Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child while he was married to Maria Shriver. We know that the child is more than 10-years-old since this all went down “over a decade ago.” We know that the mother worked for Arnold and Maria for 20 years and retired sometime in 2011. Gawker eked ahead in the race to identify this former Schwarzenegger staff member yesterday when they claimed she was Tammy Tousignant, a flight attendant on Arnold’s private jet for many years. (Could Arnold be a member of the Mile High Club?) Apparently, the Daily Mail UK broke this story … way back in 2003, before Arnold was voted into the California governor’s mansion. Reporter Mary Leigh wrote eight years ago:
“Schwarzenegger is facing new and damaging claims that he also cheated on Maria with a voluptuous California blonde named Tammy Baker Tousignant. Tammy was in her late 20s when Schwarzenegger first strode on to the chartered private plane on which she was flight attendant. He was instantly beguiled by her, and soon, according to several sources, they became romantically involved. ‘Everyone knew that she was Arnold’s lover—everyone,’ said a source.”
According to the story, three sources claim that Tammy bragged about her son, Tanner—who conveniently bares the name of Arnold’s character in “Total Recall” and is now in college and—being Arnold’s.
Buuuuut, there’s a problem. Keep reading »
Prepared to be stunned, ladies? Girls Gone Wild founder and general sleazebag Joe Francis has been left by his wife of less than two months. I know! I didn’t see it coming either. Frankly, what I did find shocking was that any woman would marry him in the first place, but I guess there’s a green zebra for everyone. So, who would marry this jerk in the first place? That’d be Christina McLarty, an entertainment reporter for L.A.’s KCAL9. She went to NYU, is the niece of Bill Clinton’s former chief-of-staff Mark McLarty, and she’s from Arkansas. I guess we all make mistakes. Apparently, she was Francis’ girlfriend of four years. The two were married last month in a lavish wedding held at the groom’s Mexico estate. “I’m not sure if she is still driving the S500 Mercedes he let her use or if she still has her $500K engagement ring, but she definitely moved out of his Bel Air home,” a source told Radar. Well, I guess that explains some of it. Keep reading »
“She says that to me: ‘I don’t wanna be your mother anymore.’ … I appreciated that. I respected that. I’ve been going to therapy. I’m trying to grow up.”
– The always discreet David Arquette revealed why he and Courteney Cox have split by calling into Howard Stern’s radio show and spilling the beans. He also shared, “We’re not having sex.” Stay classy, David! [People] Keep reading »
Apparently, singer Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman have split. Reportedly, the couple has been separated for a few months, and while there are supposedly no current plans for divorce, this doesn’t look good. Aguilera, 29, and Bratman, 33, married five years ago in a lavish Napa Valley wedding. They have one son, Max, who was born in 2008. The two met in 2001, when Bratman began working for Aguilera’s record label. “They were very much in love,” a source told Us. “But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.” What is this, divorce season? First Lara Dern and Ben Harper. Then Courteney Cox and David Arquette. It’ll be interesting to see how these all play out when it comes to those who had pre-nups and those who did not.

“My concern is about the effect of false allegations on the real victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault … false allegations make it difficult for the courts to determine what’s real and what’s not and it ties up valuable time, resources and energy that should be used towards protecting the REAL victims.”
– Gabrielle Union knows what it’s like to be the victim of real sexual assault because she was raped as a teen when she worked in a Payless Shoe Source. It’s no surprise she’s not taking these allegations lightly. Like I said yesterday, I don’t believe Gabrielle would engage in “sexual foreplay” or endanger the sons of her current boyfriend, Dwyane Wade, and his estranged wife, Siohvaughn Wade. Keep reading »
The estranged wife of NBA basketball player Dwyane Wade is suing his current girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, for emotional distress on behalf of the Wades’ sons. Siohvaughn Wade claims Gabrielle engaged in sexual foreplay with Dwyane in front of their 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons. Her $50,000 lawsuit, which was filed in Chicago, also claims that Dwyane formally introduced Gabrielle to their sons as his “girlfriend” and said “that is why your mom and I are going to divorce.” The suit says the oldest child has been treated for anxiety and stress, suffers from headaches, has developed nervous habits, and is so anxious his hair is balding in spots. In addition, the suit claims that Dwyane and Gabrielle have put the children in dangerous situations.
This suit sounds like the legal way of effing with the other woman. And I think Siohvaughn and Dwyane are to blame for how their sons are dealing with the end of their marriage. [Chicago Sun-Times] Keep reading »

Although more women keep crawling out of the woodwork, Sandra wants to stick by her man. Here’s how she’s planning to move forward. Read more … Keep reading »
A certain amount of meanness can come out during a breakup, it’s only natural — perhaps you clean the toilet with his favorite T-shirt — but some people take it way too far. The Madonna/Guy Ritchie divorce is the perfect example of a celebrity split getting nasty. Yesterday I noted that it was pretty crappy of Madge to outfit her son with Ritchie, Rocco, in a Yankees t-shirt, considering her new BF is Yankees player Alex Rodriguez and she was apparently having spiritually sexual relations with him pre-split. Ritchie thought it was crappy too! According to Us Weekly, he’s “in pieces” after seeing his son in the shirt and “he’s actually been crying over it.”
Of course, if the rumors about their marriage are true, Ritchie may have had a little nastiness coming — he supposedly said that sleeping next to Madonna was like “cuddling up to a piece of gristle.” Oh wait, HA HA, that’s funny and probably true. Whatever. The behavior of these two is nothing new in Tinseltown. After the jump, nasty breakup behavior tips from some of the worst splits in Hollywood. Keep reading »
