Maria Shriver files for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger

Maria Shriver filed for divorce from former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Friday, citing "irreconcilable differences."

The couple announced they were "amicably separating" in May without giving a reason. One week later, it was revealed that Schwarzenegger fathered a child outside with his family's housekeeper of 20 years.

    Betrayal. However, I believe a good thing came out of this. A cool little kid who will grow up to be a good man.

    I'm shocked and appalled.
    Shocked that she didn't file sooner, and appalled it has taken her this long.

    That interview by the delightful housekeeper probably helped Maria speed up the process.

    Too many people discussing their most personal business to the world. Too many reporters willing to blast it on a continuous soundbite loop. Ugh, please shutup already! Tell me something that matters.

    @banasy-lol. Agreed

    >>>> >HEY WAIT... I thought all these libertarian FLAG wavers are so big on Ayn Rand "corruption" issues...

    Is this not truly CORRUPT? A public official: What if he was President?

    A hollywood figure like Reagan? Ken Starr to the 2,000,000 TAX payer rescue?

    Face it > there is no viable American politician in this period of time.

    What does that indicate? And really WHO CARES about his "family life"......is this now the church of America?

    OH yeah MARIA ... made those claims for her TERMINATOR HERO CARTOON... good choice MARIA !!!
    How much money will you get for this on the front side and the BACK SIDE? (AMEN)

    HEY Bortsky RADIO CLONES > your Hero is always so "monolithic"... N.R.A. cartoons.

    LOL

    Poor old Arnie – the plot from a "paternity perspective" – which has taken him to the road to divorce.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger had a fling with his housekeeper (Mildred Baena).

    Arnie makes the assumption that the child is his, as there are NO confirmed reports whether he has had a DNA paternity test to confirm that he is the biological father.

    Furthermore he then (according to reports) decides to DECLARE that he fathered ANOTHER child with a lady called Tammy Tousignant’s (who was an air-hostess on his private plane). The woman had to take DNA paternity tests along with her son and husband (called Tom) to demonstrate to the media that Arnie Schwarzenegger was not the daddy!

    Another true story: my friend was so sure he was the father of a baby until a DNA test from a proper paternity testing company called Future Genetics (http://futuregenetics.co.uk/shop/page/15?shop_param=).

    Mr Schwarzenegger needs to be sure before claiming paternity of other peoples offspring.

    In paraphrasing Spec-savers, I think Arnold Schwarzenegger should have gone to Future Genetics before making his paternity declarations... he could have avoided all this media frenzy.

    Given that Arnie mistakenly thought he was the father of Tammy Tousignant’s son and without any DNA paternity test evidence related Mildred Baena’s son, how can he be so sure that he is the father of Baena's son?

    Food for thought...

    Why do people care about this? I always belived matters of the heart were personal and the world doesn't need to know about their problems

    With ya, banasy! He's been doing "field work" for years. Monogamy is hard work, & a discretion can be overcome, but not with a kid involved. Then it's time for hasta la bye-bye, & you wont be back!!
