The latest buzz on ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER is that they think he told MARIA SHRIVER about his little thing with their housekeeper and perhaps even their child immediately after he left the governor's office on January 3rd.

Port St. Lucie, Florida's 20-year-old Anthony Hernandez was trying to score some women. It's doubtful he would've been successful even if he hadn't been arrested. Anthony's seduction plan began by going into a 7-11 with two buddies and stealing an 18-pack of Bud Light and fleeing in his Dodge Neon.
