The Governator fathered a child with household staff

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his cigar swag

The former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with an unidentified household staff member ten years ago. It was this revelation when revealed to long time wife Maria Shriver that finally sent her packing. Not only did The Terminator drop this on Maria but he took a big ol’ dump on Californians too as the timing of this information just so happened to come after his time in political office had run its course.

Arnold, who got hammered by accusations of lady-groping by over a dozen women during his initial run for office, feels all bad about it and stuff and made a statement to the LA Times about how he considers his heart froze:

“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago.  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.”

Is there any scandal as deflating as the old slept with the nanny one?  It reflects laziness, probable in your wife’s own home acts, and a cover up from an entire staff of people who also worked for Maria.

This unidentified woman reached her goal of doing Arnold putting 20 years of service in to the family before retiring.  According to the report Arnold has been a real stand up guy supporting his child the whole time financially while laying no public claim to being that little one’s daddy.  I know as a child I would feel great about that.

In addition, since the couple left the Governor’s pad in Sacramento they’ve been living separate lives, translated to mean Arnold has been globetrotting to events like Mikhail Gorbachev’s 80th, rockin’ the Xingu River in Brazil with director James Cameron and delivering speeches that bring in serious bank and even taking time to help out our great country by participating in a discussion on immigration reform in Washington D.C.  He’s also diving head first back into the world of film with a bidding war taking place to do additional Terminator movies with him back in the fold.

As for Maria, I’m sure she’s trying to get her life and legal situations in order.  I did a previous post involving a foreshadowing video Shriver posted to YouTube asking folks how they make important transitions in their life.  With hindsight it looks like a plea for help.

In light of this confession what say you?  Is Arnold Schwarzenegger just a man who made a terrible mistake or is he a total d-bag?
