Just when this was starting to die down, the housekeeper at the center of the Arnold Schwarznegger-Maria Shriver divorce starts talking! Mildred Baene gave an interview to Hello! magazine in the UK.
She said that when she told her son, Joseph, that Arnold was her father, his response was: “Cool!” Mildred said she became suspicious as Joseph grew older.
“It was as Joseph grew and I started to see the resemblance that I wondered – but It became more apparent as time went on.
“I knew Arnold was the father, and maybe as Joseph got older and began to look like him, he [Arnold] wondered. But he never said anything to me.”
Mildred said Maria also began to figure it out.
“She would say things like, “I’m here if you need to talk.” I sensed something was up. I have so much love and respect for Maria. Finally, she asked point blank.”
So how did Maria react, according to Mildred?
“She was so strong. She cried with me and told me to get off my knees. We held each other and I told her it wasn’t Arnie’s fault, that it takes two.”
Mildred also said she felt sorry for Arnold. (Seriously?!)
“He’s a good man and I know he’s suffering too. He loves Maria. I hope with time they work things out.”
