Arnold Schwarzenegger's Love Child With His Former Housekeeper Has Graduated High School — But The Terminator Star Was Nowhere To Be Found!

no title

Cue that Vitamin C song because it's time to graduate!

On Thursday, Joseph Baena, famously known as Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child with former housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, successfully obtained his diploma from Frontier High School in Riverside, CA!

What a HUGE accomplishment!

The 18-year-old was decked out in a blue cap and gown and wore several tassels around his neck, which may indicate he graduated with honors!

Smarty pants!

Unfortunately, the action star was not in attendance. It may have been for the best, as his presence would most likely take attention away from the ceremony.

In case you didn't know, the 67-year-old had an affair with Miz Baena in 1997 while he was still married to Maria Shriver.

However, it wasn't until 2011 when the existence of his love child came to light. The bodybuilder wasn't aware he was Joseph's father until he began seeing a resemblance throughout the years.

The politician and Patrick Schwarzenegger's mom divorced that same year, and are currently in the midst of divvying up their $400 million fortune.

Congratulations to Joseph for completing high school! May your future be bright!

Tanishq explained that while some of his classmates were "intimidated," others "were really happy there was a kid in their class."

The child genius's mother Taji shared that her son was always ahead of the curve:

"Even in kindergarten [Tanishq] was pretty ahead, a few years ahead — and then it just went from there."

So what's next in store for the college graduate? The ambitious pre-teen posted on Twitter:

no title

This is shameful.

Columbia University student Emma Sulkowicz kicked up a storm of controversy by carrying her mattress to graduation. The art project/protest over her rape case has mostly been seen as a brave statement to bring attention to victims who are too easily dismissed.

But some at the school claim that Emma is capitalizing on the tragedy of others — and that her protest is nothing more than a hoax!

Posters have appeared all over the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan to discredit Sulkowicz, calling her a "pretty little liar."

The anonymous Twitter account @fakerape is being used to get the posters more attention:

Columbia University Student Carries Her Mattress On Stage At Graduation To Protest Her Dismissed Rape Case

no title

Emma Sulkowicz made headlines when she began carrying her mattress around Columbia University to protest the school's mishandling of her rape case.

And on Tuesday that protest culminated when — despite earlier rulings against it — she was allowed to carry the mattress across the stage as she graduated.

This is the culmination of a protest/senior performance art project entitled Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) in which Emma must have the mattress with her whenever she is on university property.

Emma filed a complaint against another Columbia student in April 2013 for sexually assaulting her in August 2012.

When the University found the student "not responsible," Emma took her case to the NYPD, who chose not to pursue charges.

She has since filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school.

Stephen Colbert Gives A Hilarious Graduation Speech At Wake Forest University And Even Jokes About The Great Dress Debate!

Filed under: Stephen ColbertFunnySchool

no title

Leave it to Stephen Colbert to bring some lighthearted comedy and all the laughter in a somewhat dark speech.

LOLz!

But all jokes aside, the comedian took the honor of giving the Wake Forest University commencement speech on Monday in North Carolina.

The former Colbert Report host had some pretty wise words to pass onto the class of 2015!

[ Video: Maya Rudolph Impersonates Beyonce During Commencement Speech ]

He said at one point in his speech:

"I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over. It's time to say goodbye to the person we've become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we're going to be. For me, I'll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually…

I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards."

Beautiful.

Listen to his funny address (below)!
