Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Schmuck

I have always thought Arnold Schwarzenegger was an idiot.  I was never a fan of him as an actor or a politician because he has no talent at either one.  There is a sleazy quality about him that I have always been surprised more people do not see.  Perhaps they will see it now.

After 25 years Arnold the Douchebag and his wife Maria Shriver announced they were ending their marriage.  Everyone says they were so surprised by the news, but I’m not buying it.  The only shocker here is that she stayed married to this pig for as long as she did.

He announced today that he fathered a child, outside of his marriage, with a member of their household staff.  If you are in doubt about how much of a complete ass this guy is, the kid is around 10 years old.  He has been supporting a kid for a decade without his wife knowing about it.

Is that even possible?  Did the woman stop working for them when she got pregnant?  Did she come back after the baby was born?  If my employee got pregnant and left work, I would follow up with her and want to see her baby.  Did Maria just not put all the pieces together?

Turns out that the woman worked for the family for 20 years and only just retired last January.  Can you imagine?  She worked there, seeing Maria have her own kids with him, for 20 years after she slept with her husband and had his baby.  It’s all too disgusting to even wrap my head around.

Maria is a Kennedy and so one would think she could see a cheating husband coming from miles away.  Kennedy’s are infamous for cheating in their marriages so perhaps she was raised to turn a blind eye.  Who knows what goes on behind closed doors but I’m guessing on some level she knew.

Douchebag had this to say in a statement to the press, “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 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.  While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”

A few hours later it was Maria’s turn when she released the following statement,  “This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”

In a sad addition to the mess, their 17 year old son Patrick tweeted, “Some days you feel like s—-, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet I love my family till death do us apart.”  I wonder if banging the housekeeper is worth ripping a family apart, publically humiliating your children, and the woman who loved you for a quarter of a century.

They have four kids ranging in age from 13 to 21 who now have to deal with not only their family falling apart, but they have a half sibling who they probably know, but did not realize was related.  I know my housekeepers kids and if they want us to believe nobody met the kid after working there for twenty years, I’m not buying it.

My heart goes out to Maria and her kids during what must be a horrible time for them.  I wish them well as they navigate the bumpy waters.  Infidelity breaks hearts and families.  I have no understanding of it and no forgiveness for it.  Mr. Schwarzenegger should be ashamed of himself.

Sadly I don’t imagine he is.  He did not have enough respect to tell his wife he fathered a child outside of his marriage for 10 years so I’m guessing decency is not something he is familiar with.  For the kids, all five of them, I pray they have peace, and hope they are keeping the faith.
