The details of this story gets worse and worse with every new revelation.
While Arnold Schwarzenegger has openly admitted to having an affair and fathering a child with a member of his household staff - who ended up working there TEN YEARS after the kid was born - new details about the entire mess have surfaced, which suggest that the former Governator only went public when the woman in question, named Mildred "Patty" Baena, threatened to do it for him!
A source explains:
"She admitted to friends how she finally wanted to tell the secret - that she had kept faithfully for 14 years - to the world."
Apparently - despite reports that she retired with a full severance package - this is what led to her being fired only FOUR weeks ago, and Arnold finally coming clean to wife Maria Shriver.
Unbelievable, frankly deplorable, and just so, so sad for all of the poor people that this has affected.
We sincerely hope that Maria, her children, and the poor teenager thrust into the middle of this whole insanity can come to terms with Arnold's failures and selfish behavior, and rebuild without too much scrutiny from the public.
Stay strong, guys. You're all in our thoughts.
