Angelyne (who was 28th), her persona, not her name. As I said earlier, it was an utter and complete circus -- 135 names on the ballot!
And I wonder if the child took his mother's last name or Arnold's.* And then how does his mother explain to him whom his father is?
*Sorry, that was probably a dumb question. I'm guessing he has his mother's last name as Arnold's would be too out-of-the-ordinary to NOT stand out. It's not like Smith.
Maria's statement according to TMZ:
UPDATE: Maria released a statement saying, "This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children."
She continued, "I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment."
Arnold is scum. He waits until after he finishes being governor to tell her, presumably because he knows what her reaction will it will impact his careers? If Maria's youngest child is 13 and the other child is 12, that means that Arnold impregnated this other woman while Maria was pregnant or had an infant. Which makes him an even bigger scumbag.
Maria might have been foolish, but I respect her for the statement she issued, saying that her concern is for "the children." She didn't say "my children." I feel for both Maria's children and for the child of the two cheating scumbags.
Someone knew. When Arnold was running he gave a half-assed response to allegations of womanizing and the press dropped the entire matter.Too much at stake for the corporations for the media to have done its job while the same media tore John Edwards to pieces for the exact same thing..
And to think they almost changed the laws to prep Arnold for the presidency.
She knew all about but didn't want to hurt him politically. With both his political and movie careers over, she has nothing to lose and half his net worth to gain by leaving him now imo. And it's JUST hit the papers that she moved out "earlier this year?" Where was the media then? The year is nearly half over!
I'm sure Maria knew that Arnold was not the perfect husband, but I do believe that she found out about this affair and kid only recently. Arnold has publicly stated that he told her after his term as governor ended. Plus, whatever Maria was willing to put up with, I don't think that includes keeping Arnold's mistress on the household staff. I also remember there being reports that Maria didn't even want Arnold to run for office, so I don't think she would have stayed with him for the sake of his political career. I think he deliberately waited until his term was over to tell her. Like I said before, he's a scumbag.
I know she is taking the high road and coming across as a mature woman but for once I would like someone to release a statement that says "I found out my husband is a disgusting pig and I hope he rots in hell and lives a horribly upsetting and lonely life! Now, please respect my privacy, I have nothing else to say.."

I wish Maria the best in whatever she chooses.
She gave up her not inconsiderable career for someone who was unworthy of the gift.
Unfortunately, she's not the first to do it; and she won't be the last.
I wonder why he is making this public. Apparently the mother was still going with the story that it is her ex-husband's child. According to the article it was an interviewer who told her Arnold claimed paternity. What possible advantage could there be to making a public statement?
