Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son Christopher Out Of The Hospital

People reports that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Christopher left the hospital today, and expected to make a full recovery following his boogie board accident. “Blessed to be able to take Christopher out of the hospital last night. What a feeling of relief to know that he’s going to be fine,” mother Maria Shriver tweeted. “We were very lucky. Many patients and families we met have been there so long and have no end in sight. I pray for their recovery.” We’re not going to immediately assume some sort of cybernetic technology is behind Christopher’s quick recovery, but it’s certainly on the table.

Arnold, who was photographed visiting Christopher at the hospital earlier this week, chimed in this afternoon, tweeting, “I knew Christopher couldn’t be stopped! Big thanks to all the doctors, nurses & staff at UCLA that helped him recover.” Despite Arnold and Maria’s impending divorce, a source claims, “He and Maria will always come together when it comes to supporting and loving their children,” as well as to terminating any and all boogie boards in their kid’s vicinity.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son In ICU Following Boogie Boarding Accident

As if this family hasn’t had a nightmare year already, People reports that Christopher Schwarzenegger, teen son of Maria Schriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, has been hospitalized with serious injures following a boogie boarding accident last weekend. “Christopher has been in ICU since Sunday,” a source explains. “Maria has not left his side and is sleeping at hospital.” Christopher apparently suffered a collapsed lung during the incident, as well as broken ribs.

“Thank you everyone for your messages about my brother. This kid is strongest kid I ever seen. Keep praying,” his older brother Patrick Schwarzenegger replied to well-wishers on Twitter earlier today. Added his sister Katherine, “Thank you guys for ur concern and prayers for my baby brother! He’s a tough little guy and getting better! Please keep praying for him! Xo” Here’s hoping Christopher recovers soon, and can enjoy a relatively normal second half of 2011.

Report: Maria Shriver Wanted To Reveal Arnold’s Baby At A Press Conference

Looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child scandal could have been even more dramatic than it has been. TMZ claims that Maria Shriver almost called a press conference to spill the beans when she learned her husband’s huge secret. The telejournalist was allegedly “hysterical” after discovering her movie-star/governor husband had a 14-year-old son he’d known about for a decade (who wouldn’t be?) and friends had to keep her from alerting the media herself. Instead, the gradual leaking of information began, which led to LA Times story…which lead to Schwarzenegger’s confession.

Hilariously (in a sad way), the site says Arnold was upset to learn Maria was even talking about his indiscretions, as if he has any right to complain about a violation of trust after having regular unprotected sex with a housekeeper in their bed and then providing for a love child behind her back. Despite Arnold’s professed desire to rekindle his marriage, it looks like he’s better off giving half his gazillions to Maria and moving on. If she was thinking about dropping this kind of bomb on the guy, we’re guessing Hollywood has a better chance of forgiving him than she does.

Report: Maria Made Arnold Confess After Housekeeper Admitted Love Child

With Radar and Star backpedaling from their original claim that Mildred Baena was fired by Arnold Schwarzenegger after Maria Shriver learned about their love child, any following “reports” of theirs should be taken with a grain of salt. But their new allegation—that Maria confronted housekeeper Baena before Arnold finally confessed—certainly passes the plausibility test, especially when TMZ claims the 14-year-old boy is the spitting image of his dad. “Maria has suspected this for a long time and she asked the housekeeper,” says their latest source. “The housekeeper admitted it. Maria then went to Arnold and he confessed.”

If that wasn’t enough hearsay for you, Dr. Quinn actress Jane Seymour told CNN she knows this kid is just the tip of the Arnold love child iceberg. “From what I gather, I think there will be lots of information coming people’s way,” she said the premiere of her new film Love, Wedding, Marriage. I heard about two more [love children] somebody else knows about. I even met someone who knows him well.” From your mouth to the producers of Terminator 5‘s ears, Jane.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Confesses To Fathering Child Out Of Wedlock

It’s going to be a minute before we want to talk Terminator 5 again, Arnold. Movie legend and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed to the LA Times that he fathered a child out of wedlock ten years ago with a now-retired member of his family’s household staff. “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife [Maria Shriver] about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” said Schwarzenegger in a statement. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused.” Shriver and Schwarzenegger announced their separation earlier this month after 25 years of marriage.

Schwarzenegger has reportedly provided financial support for the child with his unnamed staffer, who previously claimed her then-husband was the father. “I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family,” said the governor, who has expressed a desire to return to acting after leaving office. “I am truly sorry. I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.” Schwarzenegger was accused of sexual misconduct, including non-consensual groping, by several women before his 2003 election to office.

Oh No! Arnold Schwarzenegger And Maria Shriver Have Split!

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have separated after 25 years of being married together! This news upsets us for reasons beyond our comprehension. Perhaps it’s because whatever happened with other Hollywood couples, Arnie and Maria always seemed solid and to stuck together. 25 years is no joke! They’ve also released a joint statement that reads, “After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship. We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and center of both of our lives.We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment.” But, GUYS. This is just so sad!

Maria’s already moved out, so this is something that has been planned for a while. We’re trying to figure out what this means? Is this a precursor to divorce? That word hasn’t been used, quite deliberately we think! But separation after spending more than two decades together seems pretty final. We hope no mudslinging comes out of this split.

Celebrities Flock Court-Side To Watch The NBA All-Star Game

Sunday night, the NBA All-Star game court-side at the Staples Center in L.A was studded with celebrities. Rihanna put on a raunchy show singing a medley of her hits with guest performers Drake and Kanye West. She spent the rest of the game chilling with one very happy Justin Bieber while Lenny Kravitz sat one space away. It was also Rihanna’s birthday yesterday so can we please have a chorus of Happy Birthday RiRi!

Right by the Biebs and a flame haired Rih’, were superstar couple Jay-Z and a gorgeous Beyonce, who had the sexiest pair of crystal Christian Louboutin skyscraper pumps on. They looked super-relaxed while chowing down on nachos, so screw the rumors that Jay-and-Bey are separating. They weren’t the only ones snacking while watching the game. Rick Fox and Eliza Dushku chowed down too. Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery were watching from the crowds as well. What? No court-side tickets, guys?

Also, in one of the oddest seating arrangements ever, Lil Wayne was sitting next to Maria Shriver, who were a couple of seats away from John Legend and girlfriend-supermodel Chrissy Teigen. The Chicago Bulls mascot , Benny the Bull, got lucky, getting Teigen to sit on his lap while Legend took pictures. Looking far more serious were P Diddy and Nick Cannon who sat together. Shriver wasn’t around without her husband, in case you’re wondering. Arnold Schwarzenegger was around chatting with Gene Simmons.

Who Did This Celebrity Kid Inherit His Six Pack From?

Hello six-pack. And the rest of the bod attached to the abs ain’t too bad either. It can’t be, because that’s Patrick Schwarzenegger, aka the son of Ahhh-nold. Er, we mean the Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger. It would go against the genetics if he wasn’t ripped (no pressure or anything, BTW).

Patrick, in this endorphin-inducing picture, is walking out of a yoga studio with his mother Maria Shriver walking right behind him. But we’re fine with that; we can ignore her because we have better things to focus on. Sigh.

And that’s about all the drooling we can do… because he’s just seventeen. And his Dad used to be the Terminator. And his Mom looks like she could totally take us. So Pat… call us in a year when you’re legal, ‘kay?
