The headline on the magazine’s website reads:
HELLO! exclusive: Mildred Baena, the housekeeper who had a child with Arnold Schwarzenegger speaks out for the first time
HELLO! then says that Baena has come out of weeks of hiding to “set the record straight” because of all the fictitious stories circulating in the media. This, they add, will be her first and only interview exclusively to HELLO! magazine.
My first question is: how much was she paid and why would she choose a British publication over an American one if she needed to separate fact from fiction.
Perhaps those fictitious stories included the widely published one that she had to pull her son out of school and deprive him of his middle school graduation to protect him from potential media exploitation. (Imagine those animals lying in wait to grab a photo of the illegitimate Schwarzenegger child and zap it around the world for all to see!) It turns out the likely reason the boy missed that special rite of passage was because his mother wanted to exploit him herself, selling that exclusive mother-son photo to HELLO! — presumably the highest bidder.
