Arnold Schwarzenegger Writes About Affair, Hopes to Save Marriage

by at . Comments

In his upcoming autobiography, Arnold Schwarzenegger talks more candidly than ever about the lies and the actions that destroyed his marriage.

One new detail revealed in Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story? Schwarzenegger only admitted his affair with housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena after Maria Shriver asked him about it.

In therapy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Biography

"The minute we sat down, the therapist turned to me and said, 'Maria wanted to come here today and to ask about a child - whether you fathered a child with your housekeeper Mildred,'" the actor writes of an early January 2011 session. "I told the therapist, 'It's true.'"

Schwarzenegger then started to beg.

He says he told Shriver he had "screwed up" and she was the "perfect wife," adding that he remained "turned on" by her.

It didn't work, of course, as Shriver filed for divorce later that year.

But rumors sprung up in March that the pair might get back together, and Arnold makes it clear that his dream scenario.

"You can call this denial," he writes of an eventual reconciliation. "But it's the way my mind works."

Schwarzenegger's memoir comes out on October 1. Will you buy it?


Can't wait to read your work,Arnold. Always love to check-out the lives of entertainers i've been a big fan of since I was a wee-lad...Hope you'll have some book signings close enough for me to attend here in Tennessee? One author to another---I hope it blisters the bestseller list upon its release! Have fun,big guy!
PS: Highly enjoyed your work in 'Expendables #1 & #2'! It's good to see you back on the big screen,along side other favorite action-film stars from my youth & adulthood! Later,all! Author: Hollywood...


Arnold Schwarzenegger is a fucking idiot!!!!! He's just trying to justify his cheating on Maria Shriver by writing a book about it. That arrogant jackass can write all the books he wants. It won't change the fact that his marriage to Maria is over. Maria's moving on with her life. He needs to do the same. Moron.
