So, Flavor Flav and the Governator have apparently both tapped that.
Brigitte Nielsen- who was kind of famous for a while in the 80’s and has, in recent years, mainly been notable for reality show train-wreckiness- is coming out with a book, “You Only Get One Life.” And while she really could have gotten on this publicity train a bit earlier, the actress has disclosed that while filming “Red Sonja,” she and Arnold Schwarzenegger had a totally hot 80’s affair.
‘How serious it was with her, I don’t know,’ says Nielsen. ‘He never spoke about her — and the way he was living his life with me, I felt I was the only one. Then I realised about him and Maria and, wow, I felt cheated. Maybe I wouldn’t have got into it if he said “I’m going to marry Maria and this is dead serious”, but he didn’t, and our affair carried on.’
Did he ever ask Nielsen to marry him? ‘Absolutely not’, she laughs. ‘If he had, he wouldn’t have become Governor of California.’
The former model also hints at his political aspirations at the time:
‘Arnold at the time was a lot of fun,’ she recalls. ‘He was very professional and had a very sarcastic sense of humour. He told me at the beginning of shooting Red Sonja, “One day, I will become Governor of California”, and we were all laughing, but I had a feeling he would do it one day.’
Nielsen expressed sadness at news of Schwarzenegger’s apparently prolific seed:
‘There’s more? It breaks my heart because he and Maria have four kids and you don’t just have a baby with someone else. I’m surprised Arnold thought he could get away with it and I feel bad for Maria.’
Will you be reading Nielsen’s book?
