Arnold's Baby Mama -- 'Self-Hating' Hispanic

5/23/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mildred Patricia Baena was not well-liked by the rest of the staff in the early 90s, when she worked as a maid for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver at their L.A. home -- and we're told the big reason was that she trash-talked Hispanics.

Sources who worked with Baena tell TMZ ... she was a "self-hating woman" who would tell members of the staff that "white people were better" and she did whatever she could to become friendly with Caucasians. 

One staffer told us ...  most of Baena's peers disliked her because she was a social climber, adding, "She felt like she was better than the rest of us,"

This photo was taken in 1992 at Arnold and Maria's house, several years before she set her sights on Schwarzenegger and began the affair.  Rich Austrians apparently posed no problem for her.

So, on a hotness scale ...

Self-hatred is not a known precursor to home-wrecking (although it may be).

Yes, your right, the adults (including Maria) are responsible for all their own doing! No one should feel sorry for Maria either, for God's sake!...the poor bastard is a complete copy of Arnold!!! Helloooooo???? Seriously, how blind to your have to be????? She is just as responsible! Therefore, WHY "hate" (as you say) on "Patty" and Arnold? Hellooooooooo Michelle??????? Are you friggin' kidding me????? THEY were the ones that were so completely SLIMY so completely slimy that did the have sex, hide it all, did it in the house, have a kid....fine, all that is fine....I mean - not really - but like seriously that could be forgiven (if you really wanted to) BUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTT to have sex IN THEIR BED....WHILE IT WAS STILL WARM FROM MARIA and Patty asking Maria "personal advice" on her (Patty) own pregnancy plus Arnold watching them (P & M) interact on a daily basis plus include his own legal family and kids with his entire illegitimate "family" (the quincienera, etc.) kids ---- THAT IS WHAT IS SO FRIGGIN' DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Maria opts NOT TO Divorce (which is what it is looking like) then I hope she gets it ten-fold because that is asking what she is asking for!

Sympathy? Not for the adults. The kids are innocent. But, seriously, how many kids (even adults) wouldn't mind being one of those kids to have the opportunities they have been and will be afforded in life. "Sympathy" is not too deep for anyone. Disgust and shame should be on their hands but as we all know (tweetings will show)they do not.

"The whole world watching"!???! SO WHAT! The whole world is also supporting! People commit suicide everyday, feel lonely, etc. because no one will even smile at them or give them a kind word. Instead of worrying about how Maria is "innocent" why don't you smile at someone today...who needs a smile. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come on! Look at his "ladies"! They have (most) been hit with the "ugly stick"!!!

And, we all know we support Maria (to a certain degree) but she has her own "special look"!

Come on, now!!

Re: "Disgust and shame should be on their hands but as we all know (tweetings will show)they do not."

Why are they tweeting about it? Anything for attention I guess.
We know their parents lack judgement, but somebody should tell these kids not to make any more public comments. Maria even filmed Oprah the day after the news was made public.

Mildred has more sense to shut up than these people do.

I hope she and Arnie end up together. They deserve it.

While cheating is no excuse and he should have separated earlier, maybe he liked Mildred's personality better and could relate to her more compared to Maria. Mildred was afterall at home all the time helping in raising the kids, washing their laundry, cooking their food, and doing other homely tasks. Maybe Mildred had a warm and motherly personality which Arnie got attracted to. She has an immigrant background, like he does. Its wrong what she did, but given that she's been around the man for 20 years and was in love with him, she probably couldn't help it anymore, and gave into him. I doubt it was her who did the seducing. Probably was Arnie. Maria was probably busy and always out of the house, keeping up with her social work and stuff. Maybe her and Arnie just grew apart as the years went on.

Its not always about looks people.

Good for Mildred! I hope she goes after the Groper for child support. I hope Arnold didn't hire the lawyer for her just to spin the story his way. We shall see.

The former housekeeper has retained the service of Jacobson, Russell, Saltz and Fingerman, a Los Angeles based law firm, which has been sending out legal letters to publications printing inaccuracies about the affair.

She is a slut-but just surprised at the comments dragging all hispanics into it. Rachel Uchitel was a slut and made what 10 million dollars for just sleeping with Tiger? This one is dumb-she had a child too and only managed to buy a house in bakersfield?If she had Gloria Allred, she would have made sure she would be living in beverly Hills with a maid of her own-maybe some toy boy maids too.

Has anyone heard anything about the maids ex-husband? Is he still in this country, dead or what? Now that the story broke that Arnold is the childs father .I hav'nt heard that he is talking either. I'm sure there is news outlets that would pay him big money on whatever tidbits he has to say. Or has he lawyered up too. Or was he paid off to keep silent at the time of the divorce?

Smart lady! They hated her because she actually wanted to ASSIMILATE, which hispanic immigrants do not like to do. TMZ tried to make this sound like a negative trait, but she is a smart lady for backing away from the go-nowhere Mexican mentality.

Radar Online has talked about the maid. Looks like Arnie coming out to her defense against all the slander she's getting!

By Amber Goodhand
Radar Reporter

The housekeeper at the center of the Arnold Schwarzenegger love child scandal has cleaned up, disappeared and hired a lawyer!

Mildred "Patty" Baena is the mother of Arnold's 13-year-old son and since the scandal broke she has not been seen.

PHOTOS: Move Over Arnold, Other Celebs Involved In Baby Scandals!

What's more has learned exclusively that she hired a lawyer to fight unflattering reports about her.

How did we learn? She didn't like what we wrote so her new attorney sent us a letter!

PHOTOS: Maria Shriver And Kids Have Lunch

Baena, 50, retained the firm of Jacobson, Russell, Saltz & Fingerman of Los Angeles. So who is paying the bill for the large firm? People in Arnold's camp aren't saying.

Schwarzenegger, 63, and Shriver, 55, announced they were separating on May 9, and just one week later he admitted on May 16 that he'd fathered a child out of wedlock.

TMZ shame on your for playing the race card. How desperate you are. You don't have any dirt on Mildred, so you have to hurl bogus racial slurs against her.

Not falling for it!! Arnold is still a Groper and a Pig and Maria is still a fake feminist who lied for her fake husband on the campaign trail!! Both of their careers are over.

Eww, she must have had her teeth redone on the Terminator's dime. It looks like her front 6 teeth go straight across her mouth with one dead center. Gross!
It goes without saying she was a social climbing, hot to trot, SWF looking to snag someone outside of her race for money and notoriety. Thank God she's no longer able to further populate the planet.

Re: "Arnie coming out to her defense against all the slander she's getting!"

Is he paying for the lawyer? If he is, it's just to control the story for HIS OWN BENEFIT. If he's not, Mildred might stand a chance of getting a proper amount of child support for her son.
