Schwarzenegger Kept Secrets from Maria Shriver Because He Thought She Was an Emotional Gossip
Arnold Schwarzenegger has a new book out, which means he's doing press, which means he's dishing dirt on his marriage to Maria Shriver. The book, by the way, is called "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," because apparently the publisher thought it would go over better than "True Lies: How I Lied to Everyone With My Lies for Decades."
Schwarzenegger says he kept many secrets from Shriver because he was afraid she would overreact and tell her powerful family and friends. That's sweet. His attitude was, "I want to reap all of the benefits of a politically advantageout marriage while suffering none of the consequences." Someone ought to knit that on a throw pillow.
He admits to multiple affairs and eventually admitted in a counseling session with his wife to fathering a love child with the family's housekeeper, an act, one presumes, he undertook because his housekeeper could be trusted because she was not friends with Oprah.
