Bombshell: Arnold Schwarzenegger Fathered Child With Employee

Wow. Welp. We heard rumblings of consistent infidelity, and today, a bombshell: Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with a member of his household staff, and that's why Maria Shriver decided to call it quits. The mother of this child worked for the Schwarzenegger family for TWENTY YEARS, until she retired. In January. This woman — whose name is not being published — says: "I wanted to achieve my 20 years, then I asked to retire." She received a severance payment and "left on good terms with them." Schwarzenegger took financial responsibility for the child from the start and continued to provide support. The kid was born over ten years ago, but Maria found out that the Terminator was the biological father very recently. Ahnuld tells the Los Angeles Times: "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 apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry." Apparently Arnold and Maria's kids basically grew up with this child — they all played together — so the lies were fairly extensive. Funny how this cigar-smoking muscle-bound manly man is basically Cowardice personified. Also, it's amazing that his didn't come out sooner - but as we learned yesterday, there may have been all kinds of tabloid blackmail and payoffs going on behind the scenes. The stuff epic mini series are made of. [TMZ, LA Times, Radar Online]

Breaking: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went to dinner in Cannes. They ordered the house-special bouillabaisse, two different wines and a tart for dessert. Pitt did the ordering and paid in cash. You will find this simply shocking, but a source says: "They seemed very happy… They seem completely in love, still, which is so nice to see. Their energy is amazing. He held her seat out when they arrived." So… no one stormed out? No screaming matches? Does this mean that tabloids lie? [Us Magazine]
