Schwarzenegger Separates from Wife, Admits to Fathering a Child with Staff Member

The former governor's story is sounding a lot like John Edwards'.

Politicians, mistresses and scandals. May 9 we learned former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver were separating after 25 years of marriage. We now know why.  

The “Governator” cheated.

The Los Angeles Times reports Shriver moved out of the family's Brentwood mansion earlier in the year after Schwarzenegger acknowledged he fathered a child with a member of his household staff over a decade ago.

The Huffington Post writes: "Since his term as California governor ended in early January, Schwarzenegger, 63, has hopscotched around the world, his wife nowhere in sight. While the Terminator star appeared confident about the future since exiting politics, cutting movie deals and fashioning himself as a global spokesman for green energy, Shriver, known for her confidence, seemed unsettled." More details can be found on HuffPost Divorce.

Schwarzenegger made several trips to the area during his governorship, including this visit to Carlsbad High School in 2006.

The comparison with Edwards is unfair -- to Edwards! At least John Edwards was not holding public office at the time of his "event," as the ex-governor calls it.
