In May of 2011, just a few months after term limits ended Arnold's reign as governor, he and Maria announced their separation. After 25 years of marriage and eight years as the first lady of California, she moved out of their Brentwood mansion. A few days later, the L.A. Times dropped a bomb: 14 years earlier, Arnold had fathered a son with the family's maid, Mildred Patricia 'Patty' Baena. Maria, apparently suspecting the truth, had confronted Arnold and he had fessed up. Twitter, naturally, gave us valuable perspective on this scandal. George Takei tweeted, "Schwarzenegger confesses to fathering baby with house staff member, but explains that child is destined to bring down SkyNet in 2013."
