• How exactly did Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s marriage collapse? At a therapist’s office. In an excerpt from his new memoir “Total Recall” (shared in the NY Daily News, which snagged an advance copy), the star writes that his wife got him to go to a counselor with her the day after he left the California governor’s office in January 2011: “The minute we sat down, the therapist turned to me and said, ‘Maria wanted to come here today and to ask about a child — whether you fathered a child with your housekeeper Mildred.’” Maria had asked him before, he writes, and he’d denied it; this time, he told the truth. Four months later, they separated. Uh, why’d he do it? Stupidity and arrogance, he says. Still thinks they’ll get back together, though.
• Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, 40, is headed into rehab, his rep told the AP, after a guitar-smashing tantrum onstage in Vegas Friday night when he thought his set had been cut short. It actually hadn’t. The band apologized to concert organizers Sunday. (You’ve seen the video of this, right? Warning: Contains profanity, vulgarity, age-inappropriate behavior.)
• Termites and water damage have destroyed a chunk of Imelda Marcos’ legendary shoe collection, the AP reports. Some 150 cartons of clothes and shoes left behind when she and her dictator husband fled the Philippines were supposed to be preserved at Manila’s National Museum, as a symbol of his government’s excesses but — whoops. Happily, 765 pairs still live on at a popular museum devoted to her shoes in nearby Marikini.
