Arnold Schwarzenegger Talks About Affair and Love Child

Former California governor and actor speaks on his affair while married to Maria Shriver on '60 Minutes' before the release of his tell-all book.

What do you do when your deepest, darkest secrets are revealed and bring an end to your marriage? Cash in and write a tell-all memoir, if you're Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The former governor, actor, and one-time bodybuilder has a "60 Minutes" interview that is set to air on Sunday. Schwarzenegger talks candidly about the affair and child that brought his marriage to Maria Shriver to an end.

The interview, a promotion for his memoir, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," which will be released on Monday, delves into his account of how Shriver confronted him and his feelings about the whole debacle.

In a report of the interview, by Daily News, Schwarzenegger is quoted as saying “I think it was the stupidest thing I’ve done in the whole relationship,” regarding his actions with the couples' former housekeeper.

He can add his tell-all autobiography to the list of stupid things he's done now that the relationship is over. The fact that Shriver and Schwarzenegger have four children together will keep them bonded forever.

And, unfortunately, now all of their family secrets, or Schwarzenegger's I should say, are not only open for all the public to read, but their kids as well. Not to mention the 14-year-old child Schwarzenegger fathered as a result of his extra-marital activities.

Time Magazine also reports the book reveals that Schwarzenegger had a "hot affair" with Brigitte Nielsen, the Danish actress who married Sylvester Stallone in 1985.

This is just another selfish act by a man who is not thinking about his kids, all five of them, nor his estranged wife. Having a book with all of the dirty details for millions, including his kids, to read is just deplorable.

Reports that Schwarzenegger wants his wife back are not at all surprising. What is surprising is that he is still putting himself, and money, first. After destroying a 25-year marriage, one would think that Schwarzenegger would begin to put his family first and not follow through with every self-centered impulse he has.

Does Arnold ever consider the effects on others? Dr. Phil will air an episode on 10/5 about Secrets & Affairs and the Love Child. I have written about it and am one myself, which astonishes me that the identity of a human being is being overshadowed by all the media frenzy. http://bit.ly/RCwKhb E.O'Neill
