When the news broke that former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shiver were separating, most people wondered how a marriage that lasted more than 20 years could just fall apart and now we know why.
Schwarzneger, by his own admission, fathered a child with a household staff memer more than 10 yeas ago.
After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger told the Times in a statement that also was sent to The Associated Press early Tuesday. “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.”
Schwarzenegger’s and Shriver’s reps declined to comment on the situation any further.

Star Jones’ nemesis NeNe Leakes has apparently become friendly with Jones’ ex-husband Al Reynolds, reports PopEater.
A source close to Jones say the former View host is bothered that Nene would befriend Al knowing the drama he put her through. Read what the source had to say below:
“Star thinks it’s pathetic that these two has-beens have teamed up together,” a friend of Star’s tells me. “NeNe knows how much pain and hurt that man caused Star. For NeNe to suddenly befriend him tells you exactly what sort of woman she really is.”
Star learned from the mistake of inviting the public into the most intimate area of her private life when she filed for divorce in 2008, vowing not to discuss what really caused the end of her marriage from the banker seven years her junior. At the time, Star issued a statement, reading, “I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman.”
“Al will do anything to get back into the press, including hanging out with reality stars,” a friend of Star’s tells me. “But to be getting close and personal with a woman who has publicly stated she wouldn’t spit on your ex-wife if she was on fire is just desperate.”
