Mean Betty: Raise Your Hand If You’re Surprised About Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Love Child
The Governator couldn’t keep it in his pants. That’s not the weird part of the story…
Another day, another tale of celebrity infidelity. Now we learn that Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the ranks of politicians with “love children” — quelle suprise. Honestly, is anyone even mildly shocked?
Apparently, this is the real cause of the impending divorce — Maria Shriver left the family’s Brentwood mansion upon hearing about the child. (Touchy!)
“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” The Governator said Monday night in a statement issued to The Los Angeles Times. “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.”
Aren’t they all?
The bizarre part of the story, in Mean Betty’s humble opinion, is that this woman was a member of the family’s staff for TWENTY YEARS. And she had Arnie’s baby 10 years ago. So… isn’t that just … odd?
The Los Angeles Times reports:
To protect their privacy, The Times is not publishing the former staffer’s name nor that of her child. In an interview Monday before Schwarzenegger issued his statement, the former staffer said another man — her then-husband — was the child’s father.
She said she voluntarily left her position with the couple earlier this year after reaching a longstanding goal of working for them for two decades. “I wanted to achieve my 20 years, then I asked to retire,” she said, adding she received a severance payment and “left on good terms with them.”
Later Monday, The Times informed the woman of the governor’s statement and she declined to comment further.
She “wanted to achieve her twenty years”???!
Mean Betty has so many questions — what exactly was this woman’s role in the household? And she did it for twenty years? What was the severance payment? Does the daughter know who her real father is? How did this all come to be revealed?
Luckily, celebrities are not able to keep anything a secret for long, so surely we’ll all be privy to the intimate details soon enough.
In the meantime, Mean Betty has to say that Arnold, at least, made a sensible statement about it: “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.”
Well said, Arnold. And so true. Leave Maria and her children alone, pets, and concentrate your bored scorn on Arnold.
Tell Mean Betty, kittens — are you surprised by this?
