[UPDATED with Possible OC Connection] Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver Have Separated
UPDATE, MAY 17, 4:00 P.M. As Matt just blogged, Gawker is reporting there just might be a son of Arnold Schwarzenegger attending class within shouting distance of Weekly World HQ. The (still-unconfirmed) tale of this Orange Coast College student doesn't quite jibe with the confirmed tale of the anonymous mom and kid from the LA Times story. Does that mean there are two love children out there?
This just in from the Department of Eerie Prescience . . .
UPDATE, MAY 17, 7:45 A.M. Ah, so there was just the small matter of the ex-governor fathering a child with a longtime employee of the family and just owning up to it this year, per the LA Times.
Raise your hand if you're shocked--SHOCKED!
Anyone? No? Yeah, us neither.
And the guy still does look like a condom stuffed with walnuts.
[ORIGINAL POST, MAY 9, 9:43 P.M.] Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his erstwhile First Lady, Maria Shriver, announced today they have separated after 25 years of marriage, the LA Times reports.
According to the Times, questions from, uh, the Times prompted them to issue a joint statement confirming the separation, adding that they are continuing to raise their four children together. "After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship," the statement read in part.
I'm sure someone much cleverer than I am can come up with a reference to Schwarzenegger's film oeuvre that would be appropriate here. Something from, I dunno, Kindergarten Cop, maybe? Twins? It's on the tip of my tongue. . . .
