Now, this is one lie that could have made running for Governor again basically impossible. Arnold Schwarzenegger had an affair with the house maid. In an interview with Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes” Arnold Schwarzenegger confessed he kept his affair and illegitimate son a secret from his wife for 10 years.
Last week, the New York Daily News got an early copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new memoir, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story”. We’re guessing he’s done with his career as a politician, because keeping an affair and a baby hidden for 10 years is not the sort of thing that pertains to voters. On “60 Minutes”, the former Governor confessed the affair was the stupidest thing her ever did.
One night, back in 1996, Arnold Schwarzenegger began an affair with the house maid, Mildred Baena. His kids and wife, Maria Shriver, were out of town and he remained at home watching a movie. It must have been a very boring movie, because Arnold Schwarzenegger found it more entertaining to cheat on his wife with the maid. It wasn’t until 2011 that Maria Shriver caught him red-handed, sort of speak.
“I think it was the stupidest thing I’ve done in the whole relationship. It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pan on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids” Arnold Schwarzenegger confessed about his affair with the maid.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s affair with the house maid, Mildred Baena, kept on going until January 2011, when Maria Shriver eventually built up the courage and asked bluntly. The two even had a kid together, Joseph, who is now 14 years old. Arnold Schwarzenegger kept both his affair and Joseph a secret for a decade.
“Finally, she asked point blank” Mildred Baena told Hello magazine back in June 2011. Maria Shriver “was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other, and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, that it takes two” the house maid added.
The former governor’s memoir book is also reported to have a story about a second affair, while he was still married to Maria Shriver. Apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger is serious when se says he wrote a book about him, both his success stories and his failures.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “60 Minute” affair interview will air on CBS this Sunday at 7 p.m.
