Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff, a revelation that apparently prompted wife Maria Shriver to leave the couple's home before they announced their separation last week.http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/43057177
Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage. Yet, Shriver moved out of the family's Brentwood mansion earlier in the year after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the child is his, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
I guess Arnold will stop telling Lewinsky jokes, and Shriver can stop vouching for his fidelity and lecturing about female empowerment.
P.S. - "I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time." Hey, Arnold - you didn't, why should they?
