Talk about a tense therapy session!
Arnold Schwarzenegger comes clean about the unraveling of his marriage to Maria Shriver in his new autobiography Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, and the 65-year-old former governor confessed that his former wife confronted him about fathering a love child with the housekeeper during a couple's therapy session on Jan.4, 2011.
"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.' I told the therapist, 'It's true,'" he wrote in an except via ABC News.
The Terminator star goes on to explain how he begged for forgiveness, claiming he "screwed up," and told her she was the "perfect wife" and he was "still turned on" by her.
Despite his efforts to salvage their union, the couple announced their separation May 9, 2011 after 25 years of marriage. A week later, the disgraced actor publicly admitted to his infidelity with housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena fourteen years prior. Apparently the Austrian former weightlifter slept with Baena in 1996 while his family was away on vacation and he was home filming his role as Mr. Freeze in Batman and Robin.
The truth will set you free, Arni! It won't help you win back your wife though!
Do you feel sorry for Maria?
