Arnold Schwarzenegger: My Affair Was "The Stupidest Thing I've Done"
In his new book, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, Arnold Schwarzenegger opens up about two affairs he had during his marriage to Maria Shriver.
The first, with housekeeper Mildred Baena, resulted in a child who's now a teenager, it was revealed last year. The second fling, according to the book, was "a hot affair" with actress Brigitte Nielsen when she and Schwarzenegger co-starred in the 1985 film Red Sonja. Nielsen first divulged their dalliance in her own memoir, which was released last year. Schwarzenegger and Shriver were dating and living together at the time, according to the Associated Press, but were not yet married.

In an interview with 60 Minutes to promote the book, Schwarzenegger calls his infidelity with Baena "the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship."
"It was terrible," the former governor of California admits. "I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids."
