Now we know why MARIA SHRIVER hit the bricks months before she and ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER announced their separation last week. Arnold has admitted he fathered a child with a member of his household staff! Arnold said the incident happened over 10 years ago, but that he only told Maria after he left the governor's office. The unnamed baby mama worked for the family for two decades, retired and received a severance package. TMZ says they got wind of the baby story last week, but Arnold's people denied any knowledge of it. Not only that, TMZ also says that Arnold had numerous hookups with various women at his Santa Monica office building, which has several bedrooms. In a statement, Arnold said: "There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

Durant, Oklahoma's Brent Eugene Walker and Sheila Lynn Odum tripped a silent alarm when they broke into Hitchcock Distributing. When police arrived, the couple told the cops that they were just "looking for a place to have sex." They ended up getting screwed by arresting officers. The couple's sexcapade excuse might've worked a lot better had the cops not found them with a pile of stolen goods and had Walker not already served a year in prison on burglary charges.
