    I think it would be tough to be in her position right now. Her marriage, however good or bad it was, is breaking up and both parents are gone. Both of my parents are gone too, and there's nothing I wouldn't give for another week or so of just being someone's daughter without having to prove anything or be anything else except their kid. I can get where she might feel lost right now, kind of feeling around for a footing to land on.

    this is just what Lynette was going through on Desperate Housewives - but Lynnette is a terrible awful shrew, I didn't think Maria was like that

    Schwarzenegger paternity: Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with longtime member of household staff - latimes.com

    By Mark Z. Barabak and Victoria Kim, Los Angeles Times

    May 17, 2011
    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, separated after she learned he had fathered a child more than a decade ago — before his first run for office — with a longtime member of their household staff.

    Shriver moved out of the family's Brentwood mansion earlier this year, after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the paternity. The staff member worked for the family for 20 years, retiring in January.

    "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger said Monday night in a statement issued to The Times in response to questions. "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," the statement concluded. "While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not. "

    A spokesman for the former first lady said she had no comment.

    Since leaving office, Schwarzenegger has maintained a high public profile, meeting with world dignitaries, attending a White House summit on immigration and working to revive his movie career.

    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.

    Schwarzenegger took financial responsibility for the child from the start and continued to provide support, according to a source who declined to be identified because of the former governor's request for privacy.

    The former first couple of California announced their separation in a joint statement issued last week. The two have been married 25 years. There was no mention of a cause for the separation.

    In keeping with their very public — and political — lives, two distinctly different portraits of the marriage and its status have emerged in the days since the breakup became public.

    Schwarzenegger, 63, suggested that the split was temporary and the couple were working toward reconciliation. "We both love each other very much," the former governor said at an appearance last week at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. "We are very fortunate that we have four extraordinary children and we're taking one day at a time."

    Friends of Shriver, 55, offered a grimmer assessment, saying she had been unhappy for years but made no move until after her parents died and Schwarzenegger finished his term as governor. Her father, Sargent Shriver, died Jan. 18, nearly a year and a half after the death of her mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

    The marriage between Shriver and Schwarzenegger — pairing one of Hollywood's top box office draws and a member of one of America's most storied Democratic political clans — has long been a subject of public interest.

    As an actor, Schwarzenegger reveled in his macho image. But his behavior became an issue during his first campaign for governor, in the 2003 recall election, when more than a dozen women said he had groped them over a period of many years.

    Schwarzenegger at first denied the allegations, then apologized. Shriver offered a timely and politically crucial defense of her husband, vouching for his personal integrity.

    After his landslide election, she emerged as one of the most visible first ladies in California history, maintaining a high profile as she promoted volunteerism and directed a wildly popular annual conference on women.

    Although friends of the couple speak of difficulties in their marriage throughout Schwarzenegger's governorship, any tensions were kept out of public view. The couple's four children range in age from 13 to 21.

    Once Schwarzenegger left office in January, the two effectively began leading separate lives. Schwarzenegger has been jetting around the world, heading to Brazil's Xingu River with director James Cameron, to London for Mikhail Gorbachev's 80th birthday party, to Val d'Isere in France for skiing.

    Schwarzenegger, who had to put aside acting and his business interests while serving in Sacramento, quickly plunged back into those pursuits.

    Last week, a bidding war took place at Cannes to make two more installments of the "Terminator" franchise starring Schwarzenegger, and the former governor also signed to star in a third movie. He is working on an animated children's series based on his life and also exploring real estate and other business investments.

    He has traveled the globe — apart from Shriver — delivering high-priced speeches and also participated in a White House summit on immigration reform. He is expected to pen his memoirs soon.

    Shriver, a longtime television journalist who gave up her job at NBC when Schwarzenegger took office, has worked on her women's empowerment website, guest-edited an issue of Oprah Winfrey's magazine and promoted causes such as Alzheimer's research (her father suffered from the disease). She also took her son Patrick and some of his friends on an East Coast college tour in April.

    Last Friday, after the couple's separation was made public, Shriver sent a Twitter message to her followers, which number more than 750,000: "Thank you all for the kindness, support and compassion. I am humbled by the love. Thank you."

    Interesting. Looks like finding out that the maid's baby was his was the last straw she needed to walk out the door.

    Well, that would have been the frosting on the cupcake for me too. I would not hesitate to leave given those circumstances. The guy's a douchebag and not worth crying over.

    So it's okay to fuck other broads, as long as you don't impregnate one. Got it.

    It's so low to spermpoison someone other than your wife like that.

    Der Ahnuld is dogshit for doing this. And he and the woman were all smiley-smiley up in Maria's face the entire time.

    And knowing the woman was a member of your household staff and seeing her face probably every day. I would be murderous with rage!

    I thought Uma Thurman's deal was bad with Ethan Hawke when he left her for the nanny and knocked her up but this is definitely worse...

    The staff member worked for the family for 20 years, retiring in January.

    That sucks.
