Just to match our bad weather, a media storm has hit the press over the past two days, surrounding actor and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger. Looks like politics has once again shown us that our leaders are FAR from perfect…and even downright naughty at times.
Shortly after announcing the separation between Schwarzenegger and his wife of 25 years, Marie Shriver, news has broken that the former governator has a love child ::GASP:: with a woman who worked on his household staff for 20 years. The terminator’s child was born roughly 10 years ago. Arnold already has 4 children with Shriver, ranging in ages from 13 to 21.
In a statement release to the press, Arnold stated “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.”
Replacing bad boy Tiger Woods in the spotlight, we are sure to hear many sordid details of the affair, most likely among others, released over the next few weeks. A proud moment for politics and Austrians everywhere.
