Baena worked as a housekeeper in the Schwarzenegger and Shriver home for over 20 years. According to TMZ, Baena’s job included cleaning, laundry, cooking, and various other chores and paid $1,200 a week. She retired from her post in January, the same time Shriver learned of the affair and left her husband.
The affair occurred in the late 1990′s, when Baena was also married. Apparently Schwarzenegger didn’t learn of his paternity till the child was a toddler. That might have been a good time to A. Tell his wife & B. Find his mistress a job outside the family home. Instead, he decided to sweep it under the rug and break into politics.
And he would have gotten away with it all, if it weren’t for that pesky LA Times.
