He'll be back…pretty soon!
Last month, we heard that Arnold Schwarzenegger signed on for his first post-scandal movie called Last Stand, which is a western flick that's been in development at Lionsgate for a long time.

Was a bear cast in Real Housewives of New Mexico?
Surveillance video near the Governor Susana Martinez mansion caught a bear overturning trash cans over the weekend, looking for food.
The governor thinks the animal was driven out of it's habitat by the states drought - but we think the bear was sent my one of her political rivals. (dramas!)
On Monday, Martinez reminded New Mexicans:
“In order to ensure our own safety and the safety of New Mexico’s wildlife, it is important that we all avoid encouraging animals displaced by the drought conditions and recent fires from visiting our homes and communities… take proactive steps to keep animals away from your home by removing or safeguarding items like pet food, bird feeders, and — as Chuck and I learned this weekend — trash cans.”
See the bear on the surveillance footage above!

A decision that only took 130 years to make!
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has decided not to pardon the infamous Wild West outlaw, Billy the Kid, who killed nine people between the years of 1878 and 1881.
Reports say that 130 years ago, territorial governor Lew Wallace promised Billy a pardon in exchange for a testimony about the killings he witnessed.
Wallace did not meet the end of his bargain and Billy was shot dead in 1881 by Sherriff Patrick Garrett after killing two deputies and escaping jail. He had been sentenced to hang.
Governor Richardson has said in the past that he was interested in the story and tried to pardon Billy to fulfill the promise of clemency. However, he decided against it due to insufficient details.
"I felt I could not rewrite history.
I have decided not to pardon Billy the Kid because of a lack of conclusiveness, and also the historical ambiguity as to why governor Wallace reneged on his pardon."
What do U think? Should Billy the Kid have been pardoned?
