As he prepares for the release of his new memoir and a national book took, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger discussed his affair with a member of his household staff in an interview with CBS.

Schwarzenegger’s sitdown with Lesley Stahl will air on “60 Minutes” Sunday. His memoir, “Total Recall” is set for release the following day.


In a clip of the interview released by CBS on Friday, Schwarzenegger said the affair “was the stupidest thing I’ve done in the whole relationship,” he said. “I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids.”
