Schwarzenegger: 'I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria'

For Arnold Schwarzenegger, promoting his new autobiography, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story,” means finally opening up about his affair with his family’s housekeeper.

The tryst resulted in the birth of Schwarzenegger’s now teenage son and, eventually, the end of his 25-year marriage to Maria Shriver.

In an interview with “60 Minutes,” to air on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/PT, journalist Lesley Stahl asks the former governor of California, “So you lied to [Shriver]?”

“You could say that,” Schwarzenegger responds.

“I think it was the stupidest thing I’ve done in the whole relationship,” he said. “It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids.”

In an excerpt from “Total Recall,” published by ABC, the actor shares the moment that Shriver learned of his infidelity.Shriver apparently made an appointment for the pair with a therapist after Schwarzenegger’s term as governor ended in 2011.

“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 passage reads. “I told the therapist, ‘It's true.’”

Schwarzenegger’s autobiography will be available on October 1.

    It's obvious Arnold has delusions. After doing what he did he thinks his soon to be x-wife will just come back to him and forget about all his indigresions. He definitly has holes in his head. Dream on Arnold, it's never going to happen!

  8. he is taking the blame

    Arnold cheated on her pretty much the entire marriage...i am surprised maria's self-esteem as a woman was so low.

    Arnold is taking the blame so this will go away...he's has 5 movies coming out...2 terminators..and 3 other movies.
    its easer to take the blame and hope this saga will go away. Arnie will wins this battle only because nobody likes
    Maria.

    Arnold is a typical sociopath who is unable to feel any remorse. He may say he is remorseful and act like what he think remorseful should look like, but a sociopath is unable to really feel remorse.

    Now he is trying to cash in yet again with a book that uses his transgressions as fodder for PR and to restart his "acting" career. Remember that this is all for his benefit, even if he says otherwise, true to the sociopath personality type.

    Repeated studies have shown that there is a greater incidence of child molestation and incest among southern white evangelical christians than in any other group that participated in the study. Living in cramped quarters (such as trailer parks) is one of the main causes of perverted behavior among christians. Those requiring further proof need only to take a casual drive south of the Mason-Dixon Line. The abundance of toothless christian cretins you will see are a direct result of generations of inbreeding. Historians have theorized that the south lost the civil war due to the number of mentally challenged soldiers in the Confederate army, a direct result of this inbreeding.

    Also, many of these christian misfits make their way north or west where they can be found working in gas stations and car washes. And yes, some do end up in Congress on the republican side of the aisle. And some end up in mainstream cinema, appearing in such classics as Deliverance and Smokey and The Bandit

    So why doesn't he keep all of his sordid behavior to himself? He needs to inflict more pain and embarrassment on everyone involved, his former wife, his children and the child he fathered? To what end? I never did like him. I think he is an extremely self centered person, always trying to prove himself. I could care less what he did and why. He needs to go away.

    I totally disagree with you. There are some who inflict so much emotional damage that it's difficult to overcome. Time doesn't always heals all wounds – it may lessen them though. He sounds very narcasistic and if that is the case, he will never be able to have "real feeling" for anyone but himself.

    Of course, not only should she forgive him for his lies and affairs throughout the marriage, she should stay married to him and prove to their children that a lying and cheating father can lie and cheat all he wants, but his wife should take him back or she will be seen as vindictive and unforgiving. A very good model for father and mother, excellent model for marriage.

    After watching the 60 Minutes interview last night, both my wife and I questioned his sincerity during the entire segment. It appeared that his apologies were empty in tone; and the real premise for allowing the interview was to gain free publicity for his upcoming book release.

    Arnold comes across, more than once, as selfish, self-centered, without any concern for the feelings of others as to how his actions affect them. Not communicating to his wife about his committment to run for Governor, and wanting to hide from her his pending open heart surgery, shows both a lack of respect, as well lack of concern for anyone's opinion, but his own.

    He must have been a good student of acting, as whatever comes out of his mouth is a lie, whether it be the dialogue of the character he is portraying, or the character that he has created of himself, and for himself exclusively.

  42. Pray for them

    st jude remember him: hopeless causes

    We have little knowledge of the life of this Apostle, who is known mainly as the author of the Epistle of St. Jude, the book immediately preceding the Apocalypse of St. John in the New Testament. At the outset of this Epistle Jude identifies himself as "the brother of James." This is taken to mean St. James the Less, bishop of Jerusalem, who is known for his authorship of the Epistle bearing his name. Jude, also known by the name of Thaddeus, and James the Less were sons of Cleophas and Mary, the latter, possibly, a cousin of the Blessed Virgin. We find a reference (Matthew xiii, 55) to Judge as one of the brethren of the Lord, but we are mindful of the fact that near relatives were often called brothers in ancient times.
    The history of St. Jude after the Ascension continues to be obscure, and indeed is as uncertain as that of St. Simon, whom the Church calendar honors on the same day. There are traditions that Jude preached in Judaea, Samaria, and Mesopotamia; St. Paulinus, writing hundreds of years later, declared that Jude planted the faith in faraway Libya. According to one tradition, he died at Beirut; another tells us that he and St. Simon suffered martyrdom at Suanis, a city of Persia, where they had gone as missionaries. But if concrete facts as to the life and death of St. Jude are wanting, we may at least glean something from his Epistle as to the kind of man he was. This letter was probably written before the fall of Jerusalem, between the years 62 and 65. In it there is evidence that heresies had already arisen, for Jude denounces the evil life of heretics and warns of the judgment to come. He condemns the impious, the lustful, and those "who cultivate people for the sake of gain." He charges Christians to "build up yourself upon your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the law of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto life everlasting." The letter bears a close resemblance in tone and expression to the Second Epistle of St. Peter, and it seems likely that St. Peter was familiar with it

The ones who don't keep their promise to their dear loved one then lie for 25 years with the lovechild, mistress and the affair going on right under her nose for years, in her home? Come on who deserves that!?
    We won't argue about looks. They are all ugly and age is beating them up bad. "icky".
    They did have marital problems. He was cheating on her ~ 25 years! A very long time!
    It's not cool to get cheated on no matter what! It rips at the self-esteem no matter if your ugly inside or out, rich or poor, smart or dumb, biotch or azz. How could someone do that to the person they made a promise to Love, Honor and Cherish all the rest of their lives?!
    I won't buy or probably read his book, but I did enjoy alot of his movies that he made while he cheated on his wife of 25 years that he blead his troth to! But that's Hollywood!
    That's what I think.
