The Word: Ahhhnold fallout continues

Baby daddy: Schwarzenegger

It’s been little over a week since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secret love child was revealed, and the epic fall-out continues.

First update: Maria Shriver will likely be filing for divorce by the end of the week, according to Entertainment Tonight. And there are reports that the  former California first lady is said to have hired a private investigator to dig into husband Arnold Schwarzenegger’s past. “The investigator will likely look into the claims that he fathered multiple children, outside their marriage,” a source tells Radar Online. “Maria has heard the rumors, and she wants to find out one way or another if those claims are true.” Another person completely caught off-guard by news of Schwarzenegger’s son with former employee Mildred Baena is her ex-husband, Rogelio Baena, who tells Entertainment Tonight he thought the child was his and only learned the truth a week ago. “Arnold for me, [was] my hero,” Rogelio says, calling the situation a “betrayal” and adding that he still considers himself his son’s father.

This is a bigger mess than “Jingle All the Way” — and that’s saying a lot.

Hebrew is the new Chinese symbol for tattoos …

While on vacation in Hawaii with girlfriend Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber let paparazzi catch a glimpse of his second tattoo, according to Hollyscoop. The 17-year-old pop star now has the Hebrew word for Jesus inked down the side of his rib cage. Last year, he got his first tattoo, a seagull, on his hip; it matches his father’s tattoo.

His second tattoo at 17?! Jesus! Oh, excuse me, that should read:  ??? ??????!

Kim Kardashian’s engagement

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries got engaged. There’s nothing else you really need to know about this union other than her ring is worth a whopping $2 million. The 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone is flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids, for a total weight of 20.5 carats, reports People. “It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen,” says Kardashian. Humphries had a hand in designing the ring, giving the designer these specifications: “I just knew I wanted it to be big!” Funny, he has the same requirements about asses, apparently.
