Raise your hand if you’re surprised at the news today that Ahhhnold fathered a child with a member of his household staff. No one? I’ll wait. Seriously? No one? Oh wait. Maria? You’re excused from this mess.
So, yeah. Look who’s got a ten-year old kid from someone other than his wife. The gotdamn former Governor of California, that’s who. No bloody wonder the state went to hell in a handbasket. He had “better” things to do. (Pun NOT intended, but whatever.)
Here’s Arnold doing the public boo-hoo for the cameras because he’s just “so sorry”
for getting caught and having the fess up for the sh*t storm he has dumped on his family.
“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. “
What a gee-dee a-hole. I better not run into him in Sun Valley. I ain’t scurred.
Maria Shriver has released a brief statement regarding this whole mess:
“This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children.”
She continued, “I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”
I expect Maria will probably keep to herself for a good while, and I don’t blame her. As any good mother, she is taking care of her kids–no matter what their ages, because it’s a rough situation for a family.
Meanwhile, Arnold and Maria’s son, Patrick has taken to Twitter:
Heartbreaking, isn’t it?
