The big news today is that Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he fathered a love child with a former longtime household staffer. As in a 20 year employee. The LA Times broke the story and they must have had him by the balls because he has since issued a statement:

"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. I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not."

They also didn't deserve your betrayal, but you know…

You remember a few years ago he was accused of being super gropey by several women and he had Maria step up to defend him and he held on to the governorship? Needless to say, the man is a chronic cheater. Maybe even a pervert. And still, this week in Cannes, there are plans to make more Terminator movies, and he's involved in them. So… now that he's out of office, I'm not really sure this is hurting him, if at all, which, really, is the f-cker of it all. There are seldom consequences in these cases for the powerful.

Imagine the sense of invulnerability he walks around throwing around. I'm the Terminator. I'm Conan. I'm a Governor. I am so, so, SO rich. I don't have to wrap my sh-t when I'm unfaithful to my wife. And if it ends up that I get a kid out of it, that's ok too, because I can send her to university, and still make movies.

Maria Shriver, she knew of course. Word is she knew all along but wanted to wait until after her parents had passed and his term in office was over before leaving him. I don't know if I could have suffered through it all those years. The indignity. To have held it together as long as she did, never showing any cracks, and still she's managed through it gracefully. If it were me I would have blowtorched his dick a long time ago. A bitch slapping session or two would have happened for sure. I suppose though that this is her family way. This seems to be something Kennedy women just have to deal with.

We all have our reasons, our priorities and pressures, social standards, opinions and ideas about what works best for the children. There are few downsides to being rich and famous and connected. I wonder, as a woman in her position, with a husband who cannot stop stepping out on her, I wonder if we may have found one.
