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 ...

TMZ - now this is just embarrassing. This callous lynching is shameful. Why don't you go back to High School and find some outsider kid to bully? Or, how about you go find a stray cat and kick it around a bit for kicks?

TMZ - I hope you realize that if either Patty or any of her children try to harm themselves it will be viewed as a direct fallout of this lynching you are propagating and YOU will be INVESTIGATED FOR ONLINE BULLYING. I HOPE YOU GET SUED.

So the maid screwed a Kennedy's husband. EVERYONE screws the husbands of the Kennedy women. The husbands of Kennedy women are KNOWN for that.

@Gem: I'm not trying to be mean here but it DOES actually mean something different when white people go around tanning, injecting their lips etc. It's NOT that they are trying to look ethnic.

White people tan because it's considered a sign of luxury to be able to afford expensive vacations. In the past, white people used to take minute amounts of arsenic in order to look MORE white and differentiate themselves from their darker help (read Madame Bovary). But, a bit later in time, a couple of high society ladies started vacationing in warmer climates during the cold winters (in Britain, I believe) and to flaunt it, they would come back with tans. This started a trend, such that it was a sign of MONEY for white people to get tans in the middle of winter...signalling - they are so rich they can afford expensive vacations. That's how it all started and you can google it if you don't believe me.

Women get lip injections for two reasons: 1) Because as people age everyone's lips naturally get thinner with time so women (and some men) inject their lips to look younger. 2) In women, lips are a symbol of the v_a_g_i_n_a_l lips and is considered sexy. I know this sound bizarre but its true. Big lips on women call to mind their v_a_g_i_n_a's and thus (the thinking is) that it makes them more desirable and sexy. Again, google it, because although it seems preposterous, it's true. It's a highly established symbol of the vulva.

As for butt implants, sorry but most women don't get them. Most women experience a "spread" as they get older so butt implants are the last thing they want. Those that do, get them for attention only - like Niki Minaj (dark skinned), Kim Kardashian (dark skinned white person), Coco (it's what made her famous). However, even that is not necessarily an "ethnic" thing. As people age, their butts get flatter and wider (the spread). So some people get butt implants to make their butts stick out a bit more and give the allure of youth.

Trust me that it has NOTHING to do with wanting to look ethnic. That's because darker skinned people are associated with being lower class and lacking in money. That's why most dark skinned people...even when they get a little bit of out and get themselves a light skinned (preferably white) spouse. Everyone knows this is true even if they are loathe to admit it.

I'm not saying this is correct, I'm just saying this is the way it is. White is associated with money and success - dark or ethnic is not. And everyone wants money and success or to be seen as if they have it.

How'd you get your head that far up your own ass?

Mildred is not a celebrity or a public figure, but even if she were, seriously, something she may or may not have said 20 years ago, TMZ? You need to stop, we all have dirty laundry.

Sociopath: "It's NOT that they are trying to look ethnic."

You're right about the tans, and that in the 20th century they became a sign of leisure and wealth, but it's gone far beyond that today.

Why are rich white women getting cheekbone implants and massive lip injections? Native Americans are the ones with high cheekbones. And look at Lisa Rinna's lips. What do those signify? Nobody white has lips like that. Sorry, but it's naive to think that so many ethnic people in this country have not had an effect on the aesthetic.

There is an attitude that white people have influenced minorities, but that minorities have had no influece on white people. Not buying it.

Your vilifying of this woman is just gross! I realize that as a tabloid, you are expected to be lowbrow, but this is like bullying a retarded person.

It is one thing to pick on celebrities who put themselves in the spotlight and are hugely compensated for being public figures, but this woman is just an ordinary person, a maid!! She probably cannot afford to hide out until things blow over and still has to go to the grocery store ect...

And of course, given Arnold's notoriety for this sort of behavior, it is sort of a stretch to paint him as the hapless victim of a snobby maneater. Every person on this planet has enemies that would paint them in an unflattering light ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE BEING PAID!

How can a maid be a "social climber"? Not that there's anything wrong with that, but after 20 years as a maid, where you think you goin'?

This whole "expose" on Patty is pathetic.

1) Patty is a "self-hating woman"? Really? How so? Seems to me that Patty had enough confidence in herself and her womanly charms that Ahnie hit that again and AGAIN until Patty got pregnant. If anything, MARIA is the "self-hating woman" because she let Ahnie cheat on her again and AGAIN and kept denying it until it became impossible to deny it any longer because everyone knew.

2) Patty is a social climber? OMG!! WHO in Hollywood is NOT a social climber? Harvey Levin is OBVIOUSLY a social climber. Charles in the news room is a social climber. Ahnie is a social climber (Ahnie the rabid sexual harasser of women screwed men in his early days to get to the top of the bodybuilding profession - again google it...its all out there). And MARIA - so DESPERATE to social climb that she turned a blind eye to all of Ahnie's transgressions.

3) How does the question "how hot is Patty" have ANYTHING to do with the "expose" just written? It's a total non-sequitur. Whether or not Patty is "hot" has NOTHING to do with whether or not she is a social climber. TMZ is just being callous and destructive. And the hotness scale of 1-5? As if Patty doesn't deserve anything above a 5? TMZ IS PATHETIC.

FYI: If you really think Patty caused this mess then you should REALIZE that: A Guatemalan maid who has enough sex appeal to cause the destruction of a Kennedy marriage damn right deserves a 10 on the hotness scale.

But, in reality, the destruction of the Kennedy marriage is not at all the maid's fault. Which is exactly the reason she is being lynched in this way. People need someone to blame and she's being scapegoated.

Thank you Bubbles!

What a crock. How self-important are these a-holes who firmly belive people of various ethnicities exclusively want to "look White". Yeah we are all self-loathing and want to be you? Okay, moron.

I agree Patty must be a real threat with what she knows and can tell judging by the size of the smear campaign against her! It will be very interesting to hear what SHE has to say!!!

@Bubbles: I explained lip injections as a sexual and youthful thing. Same with high cheekbones. High cheekbones keep the skin on the face from sagging - good bone structure keeps the skin on the face from sagging. It's all related to youth, wealth, or sexuality. It is NOT related to ethnicity. NOBODY goes to their plastic surgeon and says "I want to look more ethnic". NOBODY goes to their plastic surgeon and says "Give me lips like an ethnic person"...they say "Give me lips like Angelina Jolie".

If you worked for the fashion or beauty industry, you would NEVER say that because you would know. Again, I'm not saying it's right...I'm just saying it's the way it is. Everywhere you go, India, Dominican Republic, Cuba, etc...they ALL WANT LIGHTER SKIN. Some guy in the Dominican even came up to my mom (while she was on vacation) and caressed her skin and just said "money" with a sad smile and walked away.

@Michelle: Actually, darling, YOU are the one with your head so far up your a$$. You get mad at me for stating the truth but it's the truth and the more you deny it doesn't mean it will go away. You should embrace the truth...because by realizing the problem, we can change the problem. You stupid woman.
