Last night I watched Arnold Schwarzenegger on TV. Why? He’s obviously a slime ball. After all, didn’t he impregnate the maid under the nose of Maria? Wasn’t he accused of groping starlets?
Although he is a creep, there is something disarming about Arnold. Is it his sincerity, his obvious regret about messing over Maria? His guts about confessing that he’s a complete creep? His nerve to tell the whole sordid story to make money?
I wonder about the poor kid (his out-of-wedlock son Joseph) who is the victim of all this. Arnold says he’s taking care of him and his mother, the infamous maid. Isn’t Joseph going to be sitting on a shrink’s coach for most of his life? ( Not to mention his in-wedlock children.) Arnold said he didn’t acknowledge him until he realized he looked like him. I don’t buy that one.
I’m thinking people in California think he’ a dolt. I don’t know how he did as Governor. You could enlighten me.
There was always something about his positive attitude. His voice had to be dubbed in his first movie, Conan the Barbarian. Despite all that, he became a movie star.
I never liked his acting. I had to suffer through some of his movies with my son. (You’ll do anything for your kids).
But I find myself hoping Maria will forgive him. I might even buy his book, “Total Recall:My Unbelievably True Life,” and I always get books from the library.
Yes, Arnold is coming back. I’m sure he’ll make a ton of money on the book. The American public, like me, is just too curious. And we are just too forgiving. I guess we might admire Arnold’s nerve. There’s something so American about his brashness and belief in himself.
On second thought, I may put myself on the waiting list at the library. Maybe I shouldn’t fatten Arnold’s wallet.
What do you think?
