The Schwarzenegger Story Strikes a Nerve

by Marinka on May 23, 2011

Some blog posts are difficult to write. Others are so easy that I think twice before posting them.

Take the Schwarzenegger situation. I mean, what is there to say? Man cheating on wife and having out-of-wedlock children= bad. Infidelity = bad. Liars = bad. Fucking liars= bad.

See?

Who wants to read that kind of stuff?

We all know it.

Well, except for my Papa, who thinks that Arnold is a “good boy” because he is self-made and wasn’t born into the Kennedy name.

(Although I’ve heard a rumor that there are some other people who are self-made and weren’t born into the Kennedy name and yet managed not to screw the housekeeping. But I’m not here to start rumors.)

Anyway.

I was going along, living my life, making an occasional Schwarzenegger comment on Twitter, when suddenly the situation turned tragic.

Because this morning I read that Jane Seymour commented on the story:

I can’t explain it rationally, but Jane Seymour is my celebrity anti-crush. Like if I were a lesbian, I’d switch teams for Jane Seymour.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything that she’s been in, I may have avoided CBS for the entirety of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman‘s run just to avoid seeing her in a promo spot, but I get an allergicreaction to her.

So to have her pipe in on this already disgusting situation is just too much.

“From what I gather, I think there will be lots of information coming people’s way,” Seymour tells CNN. “I heard about two more [out of wedlock kids] somebody else knows about. I even met someone who knows him well.”

Who knows if it’s true. I’m more interested in why she’s discussing it. Because she doesn’t seem like an obvious go-to person in all things Schwarzenegger. Despite meeting someone who knows him well.

WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?

Yeah, what DOES that mean? I met someone who knew Vin Diesel well. What does that DO for me or anyone else around me? Is that like a ripple effect? I shake the Schwarzenegger hand then shake yours and you shake someone else’s and now we are all suddenly… what?

“I’ve met someone who knows him well”???? Really, CNN? That’s where you’re setting the bar for reporting?

Gossip knows no bounds. That was a Klassy move on her part.

Maybe she’s looking for work. I can’t imagine any other reason. I mean having her comment on this situation on CNN makes as much sense as having me comment about it on CNN. Except I would have totally made things up to make it interesting and draw all the attention to myself.

She probably figured this is as much publicity as she is ever going to get from CNN, so may as well say something, no matter how pointless to stay in the spot light. She even met someone who knows him well, like it’s such an amazing fact that there are people out there that may know him well??

My anti-celebrity crush is Nicole Kidman. She makes me break out in hives. I haven’t seen Australia even though I heard it’s really good and that Hugh Jackman is totally lickable in it (my neighbor nearly has an orgasm just telling me about one scene where he’s at the top of some stairs) because I can’t stand the thought of 2.5 hours of her. {{shivers}} I’m just glad to know I’m not the only one with an anti-crush.

I suspect it’s a way for her to peddle her open heart bullshit necklace, available at Kay Jewelers. I think she is coming out with a cheater pants version – one for the wife and one for the baby mama, a set.

She is a tool.

Thank god i have you to keep me up with what’s going on in the world or else I’d NEVER KNOW… now i’m a bit curious considering that i couldn’t care less about him. He’s a tool. End of story.

I’m very mixed about Arnie. He IS a tool, but he was also Conan and well, that embedded itself at an impressionable time in my life. Clearly.

Maria should have got rid of him years ago, it’s not like no one knew he had affairs. Meh.

Sometimes I think about switching teams because of Glenn Beck.

Guess she cannot dance or ice skate so this is the only way to get some coverage.

No pressure, but I desperately need We weekly to know these things!!

Once, I saw Carrot Top in an airport. I hope that one day he will be come relevant again, so that CNN can interview me.

My son once peed next to Carrottop in an airport bathroom. Who knew the guy spent so much time in airports?

Maybe he has racked up a lot of frequent flyer miles, or maybe there is something much more sinister lurking behind those fluorescent curls. CNN needs to interview us for the correlation between airports and Carrottop!

Speaking of anti-crushes, Sarah Palin also commented on the situation. Shocking I know. They’re all tools.

I understood “someone who knows him well” as a sexual euphemism. As in, she knows one of his mistresses. Is it just me?

Gossip hag and gossip rag. I guess CNN needs a recap day just like US Weekly.

Kidman and Seymour both annoy me. Palin and Beck, too. Also, Seymours heart pendant actually looks like a tush.

I, too, find it odd that she commented. You think Arnold has a “love child” with her?!?!

In CNN’s defense, they called me for a comment on the Schwarzenegger first and I told them I was busy.

And that wasn’t even true. I just didn’t feel right commenting when I don’t actually know how to spell Schwarzenegger.

I misread this the first time as you would switch teams FOR Jane Seymour. And, I thought we had to stop being friends. PHEW.

Maybe she is now Dr. Quinn, psychotherapist woman.

I did think she was excellent in Wedding Crashers, as a sexually frustrated “cougar”. She had housekeeping staff in that movie, so perhaps that qualifies her to comment.

I love that Dr. Quinn is your anti-crush. I bet she had 4 out-of-wedlock children with the Terminator and birthed them herself in the backwoods.

Dr. Quinn needs to stick to what she knows, which is splinting broken arms and holding rags of ether over mouths.
