Is Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mistress Being Targeted Because of Her Race?

Many were shocked when the story broke last week that Arnold Schwarzenegger had a secret love child that was the result of a long affair he’d had with his housekeeper Mildred “Patty” Baena. Her daughter claims the only reason that people care about the affair is because her mother’s Hispanic.


Baena's 27-year-old daughter, Jackie Rozo, told Telemundo, "It's just a big thing because she's Hispanic, and he's a celebrity." Rozo defended her mom and said, "She's like a superwoman pretty much ... My mother does not need to justify herself." She claims she had no idea her half-brother was fathered by Schwarzenegger until she saw news reports.
