Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits to Multiple Affairs, Including Brigitte Nielsen

| by Michael Allen

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger admits to having multiple affairs, but says he still wants to save his marriage to Maria Shriver in his autobiography 'Total Recall.'

Schwarzenegger writes: "The divorce is going forward, but I still have the hope that Maria and I can come back together as husband and wife and as a family with our children."

"You can call this denial, but it’s the way my mind works… I’m still in love with Maria. And I am an optimist. All my life I have focused on the positives. I am optimistic that we will come together again."

Shriver filed for divorce in July last year citing “irreconcilable differences” after Schwarzenegger admitted in May 2011 that he had fathered a child with the family’s maid, Mildred Baena, reports RawStory.com.

In the book Schwarzenegger also writes about a “hot affair” with actress Brigitte Nielsen while doing the 1985 film 'Red Sonja.'

In a recent '60 Minutes' interview, he admitted: "I had others. But that’s something that’s between Maria and me."

Allegations of sexual misconduct and affairs have long been reported about Schwarzenegger, but Shriver has always claimed they were untrue.
