Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie Comeback On Hold

With scandal overtaking his life, Arnold Schwarzenegger is no longer saying "I'll be back" about his acting career. Instead, it's "hasta la vista, baby."

Schwarzenegger's recent revelation that he fathered a baby more than 10 years ago with a woman who'd worked for him and his wife, Maria Shriver, is the reason he's asked his talent agency to put all movie projects he'd had in the works, on hold. That's so he can focus on his personal life. Those projects include "Cry Macho" and "The Terminator" franchise.

It's a tabloid frenzy.

Scores of reporters, photographers and satellite TV trucks are outside a home in suburban Bakersfield, Calif. News crews are chasing unconfirmed reports that the home is that of the woman who is the mother of former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's child.

Her name surfaced as Mildred "Patty Baena" in several Internet reports. Schwarzenegger's office declined to discuss the woman.

A photo of the boy posted on the woman's Myspace page shows a fairly strong resemblance to Schwarzenegger, particularly when the actor-bodybuilder-politician was younger.

Schwarzenegger, who recently separated with his wife, Kennedy family heiress and former network journalist Maria Shriver, acknowledged Monday that he fathered a child with a former employee more than a decade ago.

Previous Story:

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, separated after Schwarzenegger revealed he had fathered a child with a member of their household staff.

The newspaper says the child was born more than a decade ago. Schwarzenegger issued a statement Monday explaining that he told Shriver about the child after he left the governor's office earlier this year.

A spokesman for Schwarzenegger did not immediately return a phone call and e-mail from The Associated Press early Tuesday. But in the statement to the Times, Schwarzenegger says, "There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused."

The couple announced in a joint statement May 9 that they had separated after 25 years of marriage.

    Maria didn't do "that thing" that Arnold wanted done, so Arnold found a women that would do it. But I hope he gets out a new terminator.

    Maria is a much more beautiful woman than that housekeeper person. Some men just can't be satisfied.

    How was that housekeeper allowed to retire? She should have her home and retirement (if receiving it from Maria) striped away. Maybe she feels that she deserved more; felt cheated??? like she was scheming to get more money; sounds like her plan worked.

    Maria (now) actually looks much worse than the other woman in my opinion; Maria was somewhat pretty in her younger years but now she looks just awful; MARIA LOOKS LIKE AN ALIEN; that's why I can see him cheating now, but maybe not then when she look ok
