Arnold Schwarzenegger Becomes Late Night Comics Best New Material
The gloves are off with this story, as everybody in the media reacts to the stunning news of Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child, especially those late-night comics.
Jay Leno said on the Tonight Show, "I guess you heard Arnold's new slogan—Hasta la vista, it's my baby!"
Stephen Colbert said on The Colbert Report, "Now we know why he smokes all those cigars. Each one could be celebrating the birth of another secret love child."
As Good Morning America reported the shocker, Robin Roberts sensed the discomfort of co-anchor George Stephanopoulos.
Roberts said, "You've been sitting there with your arms crossed. It's gotta be difficult for you when you know how we're feeling as women, going 'Come on guys!' "
"Not every man does it," said Stephanopoulos.
But when a famous man does it, he finds out fast how the spotlight that shines can also burn.
Jimmy Fallon said on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, "Weird thing is, he slipped it into a speech hoping nobody would notice." Then Fallon imitated Schwarzenegger's accent and said, "We have to work on the budget problems and education and I fathered a child with a staffer, and Medicare and Social Security."
On Conan, Conan O'Brien said, "He told Maria about it, but it took her this long to figure out what he was saying. [referring to Schwarzenegger's thick accent].
But nobody is laughing over Maria Shriver's heartache. Now, some are wondering if that heartfelt eulogy she delivered for her father last January might have been a message directed at her wayward husband.
"There probably isn't a woman here tonight who wasn't charmed by Daddy, who wasn't told she was the most beautiful woman in the world by Daddy, and yet he only had eyes for one woman," said Shriver in her eulogy.
