It was initially meant to be a funny message but now it can be rather painful.
On Sunday the former Governor went for a bike ride. Nothing unusual so far, except the writing on his t-shirt: “I survived Maria,” in reference to his wife whom he cheated on with one of their former housekeepers.
You might be tempted to say it’s a disrespectful dis at his ex-wife, yet there’s a story behind this.
Arnold received the tshirt last year in November at a farewell party for the Governor’s staff. The shirts, which were meant to be a joke coming from Maria’s staff, had 2007 crossed out and 1977, the year when the former spouses met, written above.
However, this unfortunate incident sparked no dispute between Maria and Arnold who are said to be speaking frequently and were even spotted together on his 64th birthday.
