Arnold Schwarzenegger has released a new tell-all book entitled Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Story in which the former California governor reveals “true life” stories, including his love child and cheating ways.
NY Daily News reports that Schwarzenegger’s then wife, Maria Shriver, approached him the day he left office to confront him about the affair, which she only had a hunch about at the time.
"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 book reads.
In addition, Schwarzenegger admits to “groveling” and begging Shriver not to leave him. He explains that he gave her three “lame” excuses as to why he kept the 15-year-old child from her, claiming a desire for secrecy, embarrassment and that he desperately didn’t want her to discuss his indiscretions with her famed Kennedy family.
The Terminator actor proclaims that he confessed to Shriver that he was “still turned on by her.”
The actor and politician explained that he attempted to convince himself that Joseph was not his until he grew older and rapidly began to resemble him.
News of Arnold’s affair and love child surfaced in early 2011, when the politician came under fire for using money to cover up his affair and child.
