"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship,” Arnold told Lesley Stahl. “It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids." Arnold was, of course, talking about his fling with the family’s housekeeper Mildred Baena, which resulted in a son named Joseph, who is now 14.

Arnold told 60 Minutes that Maria has yet to read the book. Said Arnold, "She knows that it's about my whole life and that I would not write a book and kind of leave out that part and make people feel like, 'Well, wait a minute. Are we just getting a book about his success stories and not talk about his failures?' ... I wanted to write a book about me." And not only is the book about him, it's for him as well. TMZ claims that Arnold has already told Maria that all the profits from the autobiography are his and she will not be getting any piece of it.

COURTS WERE CONCERNED OVER LEWIS BEHAVIOR!
Court records show that in the last year, probation officers expressed concerns over the mental health of Sons of Anarchy actor Johnny Lewis, who died last week after beating his landlord to death. In the last ten months, Lewis had been arrested multiple times, and four months ago a probation officer said he was “very concerned for the well-being of not only the community but that of the defendant.” Following his arrests, Lewis had been sent to treatment programs that specialized in drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental illness. A report in May stated that Lewis, “suffers from some form of chemical dependency, mental health issue and lack of permanent housing. Given this, (Lewis) will continue to be a threat to any community he may reside.” And another probation officer wrote, “Obviously defendant’s behavior is out of control and needs counseling by a professional.” Sources tell TMZ Lewis was “mentally healthy” until some point earlier this year, when he had an experience with an undisclosed drug that triggered “a psychotic break” that he never recovered from. And E! reports that in addition to dealing with drug addiction, mental illness and unemployment, Lewis was in the midst of a custody battle. Sources say the actor had a child, possibly a daughter, with a woman sometime in 2010.

ROYAL FAMILY WON’T SUE OVER NAKED HARRY PICS/BOTTOMLESS SHOTS OF KATE RELEASED!
A spokesperson for the Royal Family says there are no plans to sue The Sun for publishing naked pictures of Prince Harry taken in Las Vegas in August. "We remain of the opinion that a hotel room is a private space where its occupants would have a reasonable expectation of privacy," the St. James' Palace spokesperson said. "Prince Harry is currently focused entirely on his deployment in Afghanistan, so to pursue a complaint relating to his private life would not be appropriate at this time and would prove to be a distraction." The spokesperson added, "We have concluded that it would not be prudent to pursue the matter further, and we will have no further comment to make about the matter." Meanwhile, a Dutch magazine last week published new photos of Kate Middleton which show her naked from the waist down.
