We couldn’t believe Arnold Schwarzenegger would cheat on the beautiful and affluent Maria Shriver, but experts tell it wasn’t attraction that turned him on — it was the danger of being caught!

The more we talk about this, the more we realize how disgusting Arnold Scwarzenegger is for cheating on his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, with their housekeeper, Mildred Banae, and fathering an illegitimate child with her. Two relationship experts explain to Arnold, now 63, wasn’t craving the sex with Mildred — he just liked the risks associated with his affair. Gross!

“There was probably a huge adrenaline rush in the danger of having the other woman right there in the house. Imagine the close calls!” author of Crazy Little Thing: How Sex And Love Drives Us Mad, Liz Langley, tells us, adding, “I would think that would be like crack if you’re a risk taker!”

Dr. Gilda Carle, relationship expert and author of How to Win When Your Mate Cheats, agrees and thinks Arnold became addicted to the adrenaline his affair provided.

“It is so dangerous and so sneaky, it is the height of infidelity. She stayed in his house and knew his wife and family intimately. The more danger, the more excitement and this guy is addicted to danger situations like this,” she explains, adding, “If he no longer takes steroids, he has to make his own in the kind of drama he creates.”

We’re still baffled by Arnold’s choice of mistress — she’s objectively far less attractive than his wife, but Dr. Carle says sexiness doesn’t play a role in an affair like this.

“Attractiveness has no bearing on any of this. It’s not about attraction, its about danger. Its about not getting caught,” she tells us. “It’s a big, dark secret he was able to keep for so many years.”

I just don’t get it. In MY opinion, she’s so fat and ugly compared to Maria.

But then again, I’m a girl….so have no idea wtf men are into!

She’s not disgusting because she’s a housekeeper, she’s disgusting because she had sex with him, knowing very well that he was married.

Definitely a pity for the children. They will suffer for the long hole and they didn´t even ask to be born. Why men can´t keep their pants up and mistresses can´t keep their hands to themselves? Shame on you, no respect to people who will suffer the most.

I’m not trying to defend Arnie for one second. What he did was wrong!

Still, to say that Maria Shriver is beautiful and that he cheated her on her with “someone like a housekeeper” is totally silly and biased. Watching the pictures of the two women, as a man, I can only say – I’d rather jump in bed with the “housekeeper” then your “beautiful” Maria. Affluent, Maria may be, but sexy – nope! Oh yes… btw – Has anybody ever told you that many men love warm women?

Alli (..including 22men – that’s a good one).
I’m sure that you’d be sleeping next to maria while i would not be sleeping next to the housekeeper. I’d have sex with her. But, look we can’t discus that issue any further, everybody has different taste when it comes to sex and that.. I just think the way this article describes those two women, including your description of the “disgusting homely housekeeper” are not only inappropriate but shallow and immature. But then, that’s hollywood life… enough said.

honestly, i don’t think it’s that inappropriate. they aren’t insinuating that her being a housekeeper is the problem. that just happens to be her profession, and they describe her with that occupation. where i may be considered shallow is when i call her “disgusting” and “homely.” but guess what? almost everyone’s thinking it, so i might as well vocalize it.

You’re right again :-).

Although myself a woman … if I were a man I’d definitely choose Mildred over Maria.

Just looking at the two faces tells it all. One is out for show and “how do I come across?” and the other one is natural and warm. You choose which one is which …

That does not excuse though that Arni has a lose zipper. But then again, I could never understand why any decent woman with an iota of brain and self-respect would go for such a poor excuse of a man – leave alone his “acting”. Both substandard by any measure.

“someone like a housekeeper”? ouch. you should rethink that part of your article. housekeepers are no better or worse than you or i merely b/c they’re housekeepers. for all we know, this woman is an immigrant who braved huge dangers you and i will never know to come here and get something better for her and her family, existing or soon to exist. don’t like that phrase, at all.

“someone like a housekeeper” as in someone who is close at hand in a subordinate position to their boss; much the same as a secretary, or pool boy, or babysitter. I don’t believe the choice of words was meant to infer that compared to other professions, such as Maria Shriver’s, that a housekeeper is somehow less of a person or her work is less valuable. I could be wrong though.
