Former actor Gigi Goyette says she, too, had an affair with Maria Shriver's hub, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has admitted having fathered a child with an adulterous lover, his maid of 20 years, Mildred "Patty" Baena. "I am very sorry for the mistakes I made in the past and for being intimate with your husband," Gigi relays to Shriver on the TV show Extra. Rumors about Gigi and Arnold surfaced shortly before he ran to become California's governor.

Arnold's lawyer says GG is just out for money.

Patty's dalliance with the Governator came as a shock to her ex-hub, Rogelio Baena, who always considered the boy, now 13, to be his own. Baena tells Entertainment Tonight he feels "betrayed" by Arnold, whom he once considered a true "hero." And he gives his son a message: "I am your father. That's all."

In other fallout, the National Fitness Hall of Fame in Sycamore, Ill., says it may eject Arnold, who was inducted in '05 for his contribution to bodybuilding.
