(Arnold Schwarzenegger and Brigitte Nielsen) NEWS - Arnie's has really done with Brigitte Nielsen

Arnold Schwarzenegger admits in his memoir that he had an affair with Brigitte Nielsen when he was already dating Maria Shriver. Nielson is a renowned Danish actress, model, musician and reality television personality who began her career modeling for Greg Gorman and Helmut Newton.

Brigitte Nielsen co-starred with Schwarzenegger in the 1985 film "Red Sonja" and wrote about her affair with him in a memoir which was published last year. She wrote that they had an outrageous affair when they were working in the movie and that she was aware that Schwarzenegger was involved with another woman at that time. Now that Nielsen had confessed about the affair publically, it was Schwarzenegger’s turn to publically admit that he had an affair with her.

Schwarzenegger’s memoir titled "Total Recall: My Unbelievable True Life Story" is coming out on Monday and he talks about this affair openly in it. Schwarzenegger writes that he and Nielsen did indeed have a "hot affair," but he knew it wouldn't last. In fact, their "fling" only made him realize that he wanted to marry Shriver.

Brigitte Nielson, on the other hand, talked about this scandal and said, “Maybe I wouldn't have got into it if he said 'I'm going to marry Maria' and this is dead serious, but he didn't, and our affair carried on," according to

Brigitte Nielson has had a series of affairs and scandals with various celebrities. She has been married five times and has four sons. She first got married to Kasper Winding and their marriage only lasted for a year. Later, she tied the knot with Sylvester Stallone at the Beverly Hills, California, home of producer Irwin Winkler. This marriage only lasted for 19 months and the couple filed for divorce. She later confessed an affair with Tony Scott and earlier this year in January she gave an interview on a German Reality TV show and confessed once having a one-night stand with Sean Penn in Cannes.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted his affair with Brigitte Nielsen after a very long time. Fans are looking forward to reading the memoir, which reveals a lot of personal information about his life. In “Total Recall”, he also talks about how his wife, Maria Shriver, was told to "snap out of it" by her mother for her attempts to persuade him against running for California governor in 2003 and that conversation open vistas for his actual candidacy.
