Arnold Schwarzenegger was bragging that he was about to sign the biggest book deal of all time a month before the news broke in May that he fathered a love child with his housekeeper. But after the scandal, it's Maria Shriver's book that publishers are chasing, sources told Page Six.
Fresh off his term as governor of California, Schwarzenegger had big plans to preserve his legacy. Insiders say his lawyers were reviewing fine print on an agreement for a multimillion-dollar memoir deal. Newsweek reported that "Ahnuld" was reading scripts to relaunch his movie career, and searching for a ghostwriter for the book. "He wanted to break a record with his payout," a source said.
