In an exclusive new television interview airing tonight on "Extra," Gigi Goyette sets the record straight with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli about her alleged secret love affair with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Stories and rumors have been swirling for years about Arnold's philandering ways and his affairs with many women, including Gigi.
The pair first met on a Malibu beach in the late '70s before his marriage to Maria. Gigi was only 16 years old and an aspiring actress, while Arnold, at 27, was a bodybuilding legend on his way to being a box office superstar. Goyette recounts her time with Arnold, that he was very charming and had a special way with women. "He has this overpowering way with women that you get weak." Gigi also reveals that because of his smooth ways she felt comfortable with him, revealing, "It's pretty much the first time I had sex with anybody in my life."
The pair parted ways, but reconnected nearly 10 years later, after his marriage to Maria, and as Gigi began working at his Annual Fitness Convention in Ohio. Gigi tells Extra they rekindled their secret relationship and experienced many intimate encounters. Gigi says they would meet for secret romps and there were times that Maria and his children would be staying at the same hotel.
Gigi suspects there may have been other women at the time of their relationship. "Arnold is a very physical and sexual man, with a voracious appetite that likes a lot of physical attention."
Today, Gigi does have regrets... and has this apology for Maria: "I am very sorry for the mistakes I made in the past and for being intimate with your husband, and I would hope that you would forgive me for that."
Reps for Schwarzenegger have declined to comment.
