Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits That He Cheated on Maria Shriver — With Which Former Co-Star?
Arnold Schwarzenegger is finally coming clean about his cheating, now that his marriage to Maria Shriver has been "terminated."
The former California governor has released an autobiography, Total Recall, in which he says that he had a "hot affair" with Brigitte Nielsen, his co-star in the 1985 action film Red Sonja. At the time of the affair, Arnold was dating and living with his future wife, Maria Shriver. Maria finally said "hasta la vista" to Arnold by filing for divorce in July of 2011.
In the book, Arnold writes that he knew that his fling with Brigitte wouldn't last, and that it made him realize that he really wanted to marry Maria. Classy guy. And wait — so does this mean that Arnold and Flavor Flav have the same taste in women? Weird, right?

These days, Brigitte is probably best known for her VH1 reality show with Flavor Flav, entitled Strange Love. She has appeared in Playboy multiple times and was married to Sylvester Stallone for a whole 19 months back in the '80s.
Arnold tells 60 Minutes that he regrets sleeping with his housekeeper while married to Maria, which resulted in Arnold fathering a now-teenage son with the housekeeper. "I think it was the stupidest thing I’ve done in the whole relationship," Arnold tells the news program. "It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids."
And calling something the "stupidest thing" he's done in the relationship is saying a lot, since he appears to have done many stupid things in that relationship.
