Has Arnold Schwarzenegger\’s love-child scandal terminated his career for good?
The former California governor\’s secret affair has turned one of Hollywood\’s greatest success stories into a pariah figure, reports Nick Allen in Los Angeles
Infidelity among acting types or politicians is hardly unusual. Nor among Kennedys come to that.
So what is it that\’s made this quite such a scandal?
My guess is that it\’s because he was shagging the maid. Terribly declasse to be rogering the servants doncher \’no\’.
It\’s a rather Victorian reaction (the Georgians whould simply have made crude jokes about it all: wasn\’t it Palmerston (maybe Melbourne?) who was once caught rogering the parlourmaid on the billiards table?). And one that rather shows that class really isn\’t dead as an issue in the US yet.
If he\’d been caught shagging Megan Fox there would have been a lot of \”well, this sometimes happens in marriages you know\” but not this sort of outrage.
