Arnie Kept Seven Year Affair Hidden From Wife

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER had a seven year affair with an actress - which carried on right under the nose of his wife MARIA SHRIVER.

According to American tabloid the NATIONAL ENQUIRER, the TERMINATOR, the (1984) star, enjoyed secret trysts with sexy GIGI GOYETTE, and even had sex with her in a hotel where he was staying with his news anchor wife.

A friend of Goyette's says the former actress, who as a child appeared on TV shows like LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE and THE BRADY BUNCH, met Schwarzenegger when she was 16, in 1975 in a Malibu, California, restaurant. Her friend recalls, "Almost the first thing Arnold said to her was, 'You have an amazing ass'." The friend claims Schwarzenegger went on to have sex with Goyette that night and, although they drifted apart, 14 years later - three years after Schwarzenegger's marriage to Shriver - they met up again and enjoyed seven years of sexual trysts.

The pal adds Schwarzenegger even introduced Goyette to Shriver but, five years ago, Goyette ended the affair when she began to suspect he was romancing his TOTAL RECALL (1990) co-star RACHEL TICOTIN. (LE/NE/ES)
