>> we are focusing on this. every single thing that happens is the last time it happens for the shuttle program. a lot of bitter sweet memories. plenty of professional photographers captured it. this image, an amateur. stephanie, took this from the window of her window flight. you can see "endeavour" after it broke through the cloud cover. the video went viral after she uploaded it. it has been viewed 250,000 times. it went to the web and nasa retweeted it. >> that is so cool. all of those official images of that takeoff. very cool. that's going to do it for us. it is 9:00 a.m. on the east coast, 6:00 a.m. on the west. i am carol costello in for kyra
phillips. the state of mississippi's governor says 25,000 homes could be lost in the flood as well as millions of dollars in farm products. a historical first in dublin, ireland. queen elizabeth becomes the first british monarch to step on irish soil. a security scare of a bomb hours before her arrival. pakistan is returning the tail section from the stealth helicopter that went down in the raid on osama bin laden's lair. coming as they hold a hearing on u.s./pakistani relations. have he heard? we all know why maria shriver and arnold schwarzenegger called it quits. the former governor has a ten-year-old child and the mother is not maria but a household employee. when he was running for office and denying allegations of sexual misdone kukt, he would have had a secret child with
another woman. let's go live to los angeles and casey wian. fill us in. >> it is hard to believe that schwarzenegger could become more controversial after his two terms at california governor than he was during, but he has. "los angeles times" is reporting that before he ran for office if in 2003, he fathered a child with a member of his household staff. according to a statement he gave the paper, after leaving the governor's office, i told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. i understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. there are no excuses and i take full responsibility for the hurt i have caused. i have apologized to maria, my children and my family. i am truly sorry, end quote. the "times" reports that the woman worked for the schwarzenegger for 20 years, retiring just in january. only a weeking a, schwarzenegger and his wife, maria shriver, announced they had separated after 25 years of marriage.
at that time, they said they were working on their marriage, carol. >> i just can't remember, casey, back in 2003, when schwarzenegger was running for governor when 16 women accused him of improper sexual behavior and there was maria shriver, his wife, standing by her man. >> you can listen to all the negativity or people that have listened to him for five seconds or you can listen to me. i advise you to listen to me. >> the statement he released today after these latest, this latest scandal came to light. it just rings hollow, even more hollow than it did before we remembered what happened back in 2003. >> clearly, a difficult time for maria shriver back then and clearly a difficult time now. it is just unimaginable. she lost both of her parents in the last year and a half or so since they have announced their
accept pra separation last week. tabloid media is following her around. they got her in a nail salon and tried to question her children. she sent out a tweet a couple of days ago before this news about schwarzenegger's child came out. thank you for all the kindness, support and compassion. i am humbled by the love. thank you. >> so, clearly, appreciative of those who are supporting her but a very difficult time. now, for schwarzenegger, he has been still active after he left the governor's mansion. he has been giving speeches and working on issues like energy and he is trying to revive his movie career. interestingly enough, a website, schwarzenegger.com. i think we can bring that up. we have a picture. it says, stay tune for my next move. something tells me he was not referring to this. >> something tells me you are right, casey wian, live in los angeles. to the other powerful man
making news. the head of the international monetary fund and poe terngs candidate for french president, waking up at rikers island, new york's large jail complex. he will spend the next few days alone in a cell after a judge denied him bail e . he is accused of sexually assaulting a maid in his hotel. evidently, according to the police, the maid went into his suite around noon, check-out time and less than half an hour later, at 12:28, he checked out. he was to meet his daughter for lunch at 12:45. at some point, he got into a car and headed for jfk airport for a plight to paris. at 3:30, he called the hotel to ask about a cell phone he could not find and board the air france jet at 4:00 p.m. about 40 minutes later, authorities took him off the plane. he was placed under arrest. the fact that he would have been in the air minutes later, the
judge thought he was too much of a flight risk and needed to be in jail. sunny hostin is a contributor for "insession" and a former prosecutor. welcome. stras kaun strauss-kahn is supposed to be back in jail. what is the chance he will get out of rikers? >> there is a chance. i know his attorneys will be asking the new judge to revisit the bail conditions. i was surprised he was remanded without any bail. i knew they would take his passport, because he certainly was a flight risk, because he was yanked off of an air france flight on its way out of the country. i thought perhaps they would allow him to post bail, maybe $1 million, which is what his attorneys had requested. this judge felt, no, too much of a flight risk. this new judge may think the same thing. it is possible that he will be held without bail pending the trial of this matter. i think that would be unusual. certainly, it is possible, especially, carol, when you look
at the charges that are being lodged against him. they are very, very significant. the top charge could land him in prison for 25 years. >> there is this talk going around that he had an alabi. he was going to have lunch with his daughter. the timeline doesn't match that, does it? >> it doesn't match that. there were some reports that he met with his daughter and didn't necessarily rush out on to a plane. he met with his daughter for lunch, called the hotel and said, i left my phone. however, his attorneys are saying that the defense will be consensual sexual acts. that is usually the case where there is a he said, she said going on. a lot of legal minds don't think that makes sense. we are talking about a maid in her 30s, an african immigrant, who did not know this man, who have a jury believe that they had some sort of consensual
sexual encounter seems to be pushing it a little bit. >> sunny whohostin, many thanks. a bomb found in a box hours before queen elizabeth was due to visit the country. the bomb has been defused. security is extremely tight. zain verjee joins us live from london. what are police saying about this bomb? >> they are looking into it. the device basically was handed over to investigators and investigators are basically forensically assessing it to see if they can come up with any more information. this is a really worrying development. it is likely to continue over the next four days, because that's how long the queen is going to be there. you have something like 10,000 police and army security that have fanned out all over the city, air, land, and sea patrols as well, carol. it is a massive operation, the biggest security operation ever in the country. carol? >> just visit itself, by a
british monarch, this hasn't happened since 1911. this is a big deal, right? >> it is absolutely huge. the last time that british monarch was in ireland was 1911. the queen's grandfather, george the v was there. that was a time where ireland was under british colonial rule. there was a lot of bad blood, a lot of hostility, a lot of suspicion. the irish were fighting for independence. the british put in their troops into northern ireland. it was really a bloody affair. now, this is a historic moment. let's take a look at what some of the newspapers are sig. the irish times has had headline. the day has come. queen elizabeth is welcome as a remarkable woman in her own right, it says, as a figure to whom a significant minority on this island give allegiance and above all as a symbol of the mutual affection and common interests. let's take a look at the age, carol. in australia, peace brings the queen to ireland.
the queen's visit to ireland is seen by some as a provocation and requires a massive security operation. lastly. carol, she looked pretty good in green, i thought, today? >> a good color to wear to ireland. zain verjee, live in london. thank you. back here in the united states, republican candidates for president are dropping like flies. donald trump is out because -- we will leave that to you. mike huckabee is out and happy. he told politico, he has found an inex plik kabul inner peace, a peace that exceeds human
understanding. others have no need for peace but political power. our senior political power, mark preston, is here. who benefits from these dropouts? >> a couple people. let's look at donald trump from the race. if you look at this cnn opinion research corporation poll, taken a few weeks ago, it shows that mitt romney would probably benefit the most. mitt romney is considered the front-runner in the race, always has been. trump had been eating away at his numbers a little bit. you talk about mike huckabee being out of the race. it doesn't necessarily show in this poll. with mike huckabee, who appealed to social conservatives, especially in states such as iowa and south carolina, with him leaving the race, expect a lot of social conservatives to start looking at michele bachmann, a congresswoman from minnesota and brick santorum, from pennsylvania and herman cane, a little-known businessman
from kcalifornia. a former ceo of godfather's pizza. 10.25 million was an eye-popping number dropped on us. >> it is going to cause some folks to reconsider how they are going to run their campaigns. mitt romney announced he raised $10.25 billion in one day. he held a callathon out in las vegas. 800 people participated in it. perhaps the strategy behind it is to try to scare off the likes of mitch daniels, the indiana governor who is seriously considering running for president right now. perhaps if he sees a number like that, maybe mitch daniels might give it a second thought. the last shoe to drop is sarah palin. if she gets out of the race, everything will change again. carol? >> thanks so much. we appreciate it. mark preston, live in would you go. we will have your next political update in one hour. a reminder, for all the latest,

resume this morning. so, joining me is sports attorney, david cromwell. this is so complicated. i don't know. who is the victor here in this series of rulings? >> well, certainly, the pendulum of leverage has swung in the owner's favor. back in early march or march 11th, the players decertified this lawsuit to stop the lockout. judge nelson in the district court granted the injunction in early april. the appeals court has now stayed the injunction. what's important is the court said in its decision, we have serious doubts that the district court has jurisdiction to injoin the league's lockout and conclude the league has made a strong showing that it is going to win the appeal. not only have they issued a stay but they have signaled that they think the league is okay in imposing a lockout. >> so what does that mean? negotiations are supposedly ongoing today. another judge ordered mediation
to take place. so how does that ruling affect what's going on amongst the players? >> it certainly is complicated but, you know, for lawyers, this is fascinating, to watch the pendulum swinging back and forth. >> for fans, it is ridiculous. >> detroit lions fans, it is frustrating th frustrati frustrating. the legal issues are far from clear. the only way they will get back on the field is when they get into the negotiating room and negotiate a collective bargaining agreement that both sides say is a win/win or a lose/lose. you can't have one winner and one loser. >> supposedly, the owners have a new deal they are going to present to the players. do you know anything about that new deal? >> i don't. march 11th, the players walked away because they believe the proposal the owners made in the 11th hour was insufficient.
so unless that deal, the proposal today, is dramatically better, i don't see this getting resolved. demorris smith, the executive director, said on march 11th, this is the worst deal in the history of professional sports. >> david, thanks so much for coming in. a growing internet trend. authorities are warning of its dangers. it is called planking. people are taking greater and greater risks to get the ultimate photo. it has even cast one man his life. we will have a live report when we come back.
you probably have never heard of this but in a very short time, planking, as it is called, has become the world's latest craze. people lie face down, flat as a board in unusual or scary places. a photo of the pose is then posted on the internet. tell us why authorities around the world are warning of its dangers. it is pretty nuts. it has taken off, on fire. i have never done it. we are all just all talking about it a moment ago here in the "newsroom." one person has died of it. a 20-year-old guy. what he did was, he went out on a high-rise building.
he was on a balcony. he went on the edge and kind of planked on it and lost his balance and fell and died. the police in australia are cautioning people that, hey, it is fun. you can do it but you have to be really careful where you choose to codo it. >> where and when did this craze start? >> well, 2009 on facebook in australia, they started off by calling it the lying-down game and then it became called planking. that website got tens and thousands of likes and they have started one in norway and ireland and other places. you pose somewhere, take a picture of yourself and see how cool or weird a place you can do it, carol. you haven't done it before, have you? >> no. it just looks strange to me. who are these people doing the planking and why are they so fascinated by it? >> they are a lot younger than us. not a lot. just a little bit younger than us. the teens or mainly people in
their 20s. it is catching on with people a lot older. they think it is cool and they think it is funny. there was one person that did it on top of a police car. they got in trouble. there were other people planking in hospital emergency rooms. they got fired. so the idea is to pick the coolest and weirdest place to do it in. it is becoming an issue right now. that's what people are worried about. >> very strange craze. i guess be careful out there. >> no planking outside on the cnn sign or on the anchor desk. >> or certainly not on top of a moving pickup truck. thank you, zane, we appreciate it. the navy s.e.a.l.s got their man by left their wrecked chopper behind. pakistan has been in no hurry to give it back. they are finally making a move. the latest live in islamabad next. we can not stop talking about the bombshell out of california. the "l.a. times" reporting that arnold schwarzenegger admits to

it back. they have since changed their tune with a handover planned for today. our senior international correspondent, stan grant, live in islamabad. what went on behind the scenes to get this chopper back, stan? >> carol, this appears to be all part of a good will gesture to try to mend this relationship between the united states and pakistan. of course, since the killing of osama bin laden, we have seen real cracks appear in this relationship. senator john kerry was here yesterday for discussions with top officials, the president, the prime minister, the heads of the military and intelligence. he was looking, he says, for actions, not words, to get this relationship reset. now, it appears that one of the concessions is they are going to hand back this helicopter, at least the tail of the helicopter that actually went down in the osama bin laden raid. you may recall there was some speculation that pakistan may, in fact, hand it over to china, china being a long-time ally of pakistan. it is going to go back to the
united states. we haven't been able to confirm what's happened today but it was expected to take place either today or in the coming days. as i say, all part of trying to mend a relationship. senator john kerry was very blunt with the pakistani officials saying you need to decide what sort of a country you want to have. you have to decide if you want this country to be a haven for terrorists or a functioning democracy. carol? >> stan grant, live in pakistan. thank you. checking our top stories. a bombshell out of california. the "los angeles times" reporting that former governor, arnold schwarzenegger, admits to fathering a child with a household staffer. that affair took place ten years ago. last week, he and his wife, maria shriver announced they had separated after 25 years of marriage. >> the head of the international monetary fund is waking up in rikers island jail today. dominique strauss-kahn spent the next few days alone there. he is accused of sexually assaulting a maid on saturday in

plus four more in the next inning. they left the poor guy in. he was sent back down to the minors after the game. indians, 19, royals, 1. during a baseball rain delay, players joust on the field. you will see that and much more in 20 minutes. now, cnn in-depth, admit it, we are all curious wondering what other people earn. it turns out, it is important information whether you are looking for your first job, a new career or a pay raise. it is part of this week's in-depth look at the job market. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. how are our salaries determined? >> these hiring managers just pull it out of the sky, carol. kidding. there are three main factors that go into what you are paid. we talked with an analysts at pay scale.com. he tells us the most important
factors are your education and experience and skills. there is also location, a huge factor. if you live in california or new york, you have the highest salaries, understandable because of the high cost of living. that is important to know when you go in for salary negotiation, keep in mind about those three factors so you can have some realistic expectations. with that being said, we picked a few industries to look at more closely starting with the legal sector. most people hear that and they think about lawyers making six figures, right? that's because of the additional education that you need. it runs the gamut here. the entry level law clerk that makes around $32,000 and the paralegal who makes around $53,000. most have a bachelor's degree only. that is something to consider since some of us don't want to stay in school forever, carol. >> we still know some attorneys make colossal amounts of money, uc frp higher than $81,000 a year.
i guess that comes from experience and what percentage you get from the cases. how about the jobs that don't require much education, how do those jobs fare in terms of pay? >> with any industry, salaries are in a range. you will see a six-figure salary in the retail industry. a retail pharmacist, like the person at your local drugstore. that requires more schooling. you can make a liveable salary without an advanced degree. there are retail buyers that pick what stores sell and they make somewhere in the range of $50,000. another area where you don't need as much in education to break into it at least is the hotel and restaurant sort of area. so a waiter or clerk with a high school diploma makes around $30,000. the average as an executive chef jumps up to $50,000 and upwards
to $65,000. a lot of people wind up going to a trade school or get a two-year associate's degree. the theme is education and time. if you have the education, you start out at a higher salary. if not, you can still get in at a low level. you can slowly work your way up but keep in mind, carol, you get all these, wind up hitting that ceiling. in some industries, you can make a very liveable salary, carol. >> alison kosik reporting live from the new york stock exchange. we are going to tell you how to ask for that raise you so rightly deserve. you can find everything you need to know about america's job market right here on cnn. find out where the jobs are, how to get them and keep them. we are partnered with cnn money and "time" magazine to dig deep. for more information, check out the all new cnnmoney.com. it became a conservative energy mantra.

>> well, we need to start embracing the idea that the earth has limited resources, not limitless resources and that there are ramifications for our drill, baby, drill. what makes for a great, great sou sound byte but isn't the safest, most responsible way to handle the earth's resources. >> what is wrong with drilling more domestically. with he can do that and protect the environment if we are careful, right? >> that's the latter part, right? if we are careful. what we have seen is that any time profit is dictating the motivation of companies, motivation of people, they don't always want to do or seem to do the right things. they take short-cuts. sometimes those short-cuts get ignored in the better interest of having bigger profits. so what the piece is about is again looking at and reflecting our own attitudes towards energy and the resources of the earth. >> something in your opinion piece caught my eye. you talk about jim amy carter a
the famous speech when he asked americans to be more responsible. you say you want president obama to deliver a similar speech. come on. isn't that asking for political trouble? >> well, absolutely but, you know what, i thought he was about political trouble. i thought he was coming to the white house to not be politics as usual. unfortunately, saturday, i felt as if he was forced to play or felt as if he was forced to play back into the political game. he has been hit hard about gas prices. the american public are blaming him for higher gas prices. we aren't looking at the real factors, such as what the refineries are charging and how much production they are doing. the price of oil being driven up by speculation and not reality. president obama is becoming the face of higher gas prices and so he has been forced to play these politics. it is a little sad. i hoped that he would be the guy that he said he would be, which would stand up for what's right
and not what's politically savvy. >> lz granderson, interesting at always. america, get real about the high cost of cheap gas. you can find it at kr. nn.com/opinion. if you would like to join the conversation, leave a comment for him. we can not stop talking about the bombshell out of california. arnold schwarzenegger admits to fathering a child with another woman. we will talk about a celebrity divorce lawyer about this revelation. bernie madoff's wine and spirits collection is being auctioned off today. we will tell you who is going to get the money from the sales after a break. building up our wireless network all across america. we're adding new cell sites... increasing network capacity, and investing billions of dollars to improve your wireless network experience. from a single phone call to the most advanced data download, we're covering more people in more places than ever before in an effort to give you the best network possible. at&t. rethink possible.

regular relationships busting up can be costly. when you are talking about two megarich people, it is another story. arnold schwarzenegger is supposedly worth $300 million. maria shriver, $100 million. so far, the couple has only said they are separating. if they make it official, things could get complicated. randy has handled a bunch of celebrity divorces and some of them pretty ugly. >> having money doesn't insulate you from being human and making silly mistake. >> this goes beyond a silly
mistake. i think what makes this really heinous, ard could go to the "l.a. times," woman that arnold schwarzenegger impregnated continued to live in the house, worked with maria shriver. she had no idea that this household employee was pregnant with her husband's child. >> that's the real violation. maria comes out and says, we are going to separate. do you believe that. >> as a divorce lawyer, a lot of times, what we see is the light bulb goes off for one person at a different time than it does the other person. rarely do they both say, we decided we want a divorce.
>> if maria shriver would come to you and say, i have to get a divorce, i can't take that, what woo you do? >> i would say, let's keep it out of the limelight and let's go to lunch and try to do it privately. >> they are both worth a colossal amount of money. so in those cases, where both people are enormously wealthy. is there a big fight over money. >> elan and tiger, she was going to be fine if she had 10% of his wealth. who knows what she got. sometimes money can't solve everything but it makes you feel better about what the other side did. >> so it becomes a veng ans thing. >> you known similar cases where the parties said we can forgive and get back together and live happily ever after. >> absolutely. when someone doesn't care, it is over. when there is passion and anger, there is often reconciliation.

crowd loved it and by the looks of it, the guys did, too. it is 10:00 a.m. on the east coast, 7:00 a.m. out west. i'm carol costello. good morning it to you. a quick look at some of the stories we're following. their high profile marriage on the rocks and now we know why. former california governor arnold schwarzenegger reveals he has fathered a child out of wedlock. according to the "l.a. times," it happened ten years ago with a house hold employee. queen of england makes a first visit to the british monarch and it follows a bomb threat. and the miami connection to suspected terrorism, two muslim clerics have been indicted on charges they provided financial aid and other support to the taliban in pakistan. we're expecting them to return the damaged tail section of the secret military
helicopter that went down in the osama bin laden raid. it's the subject of a senate foreign relations committee happening right now as you can see. here is what senator john kerry said just moments ago. >> the pakistani leadership and people initially reacted by praising our actions in abbottabad. the subsequent discourse unfortunately became quite sharp and quite critical because of the issue of sovereignty and the questions surrounding the raid itself. >> kerry is the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee and he just got back from pakistan and that's where we find our stan grant actually in pakistan. stan, the senator says he wants a specific series of steps to reduce tension, so what are those steps? >> reporter: actions, not words. that's the blunt message really that he left pakistani officials with. what he's talking about is setting up a framework here that they can actually move this
relationship forward. no detail exactly on what that framework will involve, however, there are officials coming over the next week or so, one from the state department, one from the cia, to have further talks with a view to the secretary of state hillary clinton ultimately coming to pakistan, as well, but that's still some way off. in the meantime, they want to see that there is a commitment from pack tap to go after the militants here to support the u.s. action across the border in afghanistan. john kerry said that pakistan shares in this fight. pakistan has lost tens of thousands of people to terrorism. and he wants pakistan to decide what sort of country it wants to be, whether it wants to be a healthy democracy or a haven if for terrorists. but still no specific answer on what pakistani officials did or did not know about osama bin laden actually living inside the country. squon kerry said there was no evidence to suggest they knew and he wouldn't speculate either. for the moment, they're putting that to one side and just trying to get this relationship back on
track. >> and the taliban is involved in this. there are stepped up talks with the taliban. tell us what that means. >> reporter: yeah, will is intriguing. reports coming out that the u.s. has been holding secret talks with the taliban to try to discuss ways of bringing them back into the fold particularly in afghanistan. now, apparently some of the discussions have already taken place in qatar involving one senior taliban official who is close to the taliban leader. this is a long term strategy. it's been talked about a lot trying to get the taliban back on side. and i think with the death of osama bin laden, many see that as a circuit breaker, maybe we can start again here and try to actually negotiate with the taliban. easier said than done, though, because there is not just one taliban. there are various groups who are aligned it to the main body, all have different agendas. you may be talking to one group, isn't necessarily mean the others are going to be on side,
as well. >> stan grant live from islamabad, thank you. here in the states, the head of the international monetary fund and potential candidate for french president wakes up at likers island. dominique strauss-kahn will spend the next few days alone in a jail cell after a judge denied him bail. strauss-kahn is accused of sexually assaulting a maid saturday in his manhattan hotel. the information is coming from a law enforcement source. the maid went into his suite around noon which would be checkout time. less than a half an hour later at 12:28, he checked out. he was to meet his daughter for lunch at 12:45. at some point, he got into a car and headed to jfk airport for a flight to paris. around 3:30, he called the hotel to ask about a cell phone he could not find and then he boarded the air france jet at 4: 4:00. just before departure, authorities took him off that
plane. sunny hostin is a former prosecutor. we welcome, sun any. what are the chances that this guy will get out of riker's this week? >> reporter: there is a possibility. there is it another hearing on may 20th. he'll be in front of a different judge and there is no question at that time his defense attorneyses whether ask that judge to revisit the conditions of bail. at this point of course as everyone knows, he was remanded to riker's island without even the opportunity to post bail. many of us were surprised at that. we were not surprised that his passport was taken because certainly he's a flight risk under the law as that is defined because he was taken off of an air france flight prior to its departure. and so flight risk, yes. but sometimes in these cases, carol, these defendants are allowed to post a million dollars bail, $2 million bail. in this case, the arraignment judge declined that.
>> is he in solitary confinement? >> reporter: i haven't heard that. i will say this, i've been to riker's island as an attorney. and it is an unpleasant place. a lot of high profile defendants are put in sole staitary confin. he would be considered a high profile defendant. but my guess is that many people there don't know who he is. but it is probable that he will be removed from the general population there. >> so what exactly will happen on friday? >> reporter: friday could be another arraignment. we don't know exactly what's going to happen. but a grand jury is likely looking at this. if he gets indicted by a grand jury, that will be read into the record. he will enter either a plea of not guilty or guilty. and again his bail conditions will be reconsidered. >> sunny hostin, thanks for joining us. as you might imagine, the strauss-kahn story is making
headlines around the globe. zain verjee is in london. what are the papers overseas saying about this? >> reporter: let's go straight to those headlines, carol. the press in new zealand has this headline, seducer, victim of puritan sex stink sg say supporterses. it says the view that he's been stung would i americans has won support. "wall street journal," in france the talk is strauss-kahn. despite the serious charge, many in france said they found it hard to believe that a man with his political experience could commit such an act. >> i'm just trying to imagine for the french people, this must be unbelievably shocking. a potential presidential candidate in handcuffs in the united states accused of a brutal rape? >> reporter: totally. i mean, just the image of that
and the way it's playing in france is really intense because, yes, this was the main political rival to the president, nicolas sarkozy. so they're so disappointed and upset, they're trying to figure out what do. and you know the french elite, they can get away with a lot. and having him walk like this in handcuffs is something that would be unthinkable to many people. and lastly, this is important, too, in french law, you can't legally show shots of someone unless they've been charged with something or convicted with something. so the fact that these images have been beamed all over french tv is actually not exactly legal in the country. so dom neeks strauss-kainique s sue because these pictures being shown like that. they say it prejudices people if they see people in his situation at this point in time legally in it handcuffs. >> he's being tried in the united states. i understand it's different in france, but --
>> reporter: right. you know, he has got more fish in the fire to deal with than lawsuits right now. >> you've got that right. zain verjee, thank you. coming up later, deb will talk about the case itself, a hotel maid accuses an international figure and potential president of france of a serious crime. just a few days after president obama announced plans to expand domestic oil production, his administration's explaining some of its initiatives to the senate energy committee. among those testifying, ken sal s salazar. according to the aaa, the national average for a gallon of regular is $3.94. a whole penny less than yesterday. that won't exactly clear heer u lot of people, though.

schwarzenegger called it quits last week. the former governor admitting he has a 10-year-old child and it's not maria shriver's. according to the "l.a. times," the mother, a household employee. it means when schwarzenegger was running for office in california and denying allegations of sexual misconduct, would he have h he would have had a secret child. >> reporter: hard to believe that schwarzenegger could become even more controversial after his two terms as california governor than he was during. schwarzenegger is acknowledging that before he ran for office in 2003, he fathered a child with a member of his house hold staff. in a statement, schwarzenegger said "after leaving the governor's office, i told my wife about this event which occurred over a decade ago. i understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. there are no excuses and i take full responsibility for the hurt i have caused. i have apologized to maria, my
children, and my family. i am truly sorry." the story was first reported by the "los angeles times" and has now been confirmed by cnn. the woman worked for the schwarzeneggers for 20 years, retiring in january. the former governor has been providing financial support for the child. only a week ago, schwarzenegger and his wife announced they had separated after 25 years of marriage. at that time the couple said they were working on the future of their relationship. no word on the status of that relationship now. >> you can't help but remember back to 2003 when schwarzenegger was running for governor, it when 16 women accused hip of improper sexual behavior and who was by his side? maria shriver. listen. >> you can listen to all the negativity and you can listen to people who have never met arnold or who met him for five seconds 30 years ago or you can listen to me. i advise you to listen to me.
>> and during that time, she didn't know about this secret child. so it's just so ugly. >> apparently not. clearly a difficult time for maria shriver. she's lost her parents, both of her parents in the last year and a half, and now she's struggling with what appears to be the end of her marriage. and on friday before this news about the child became public, she sent out a tweet saying thank you for all of the kindness, support and compassion. i'm humbled by the love. thank you. t as for schwartz neglect zeneggen reported that he's hoping to revive his movie career and there's website schwarzenegger.com that shows a picture about of the former governor sitting at a chess table and the text says stay tuned for high next mo ed fod f. it's clear this is not the next

now cnn in-depth. all this week we're focusing on america's job hunt. in tough economic times it's hard thinking about asking for a raise. just having a job is good must have for most of us. but with the recession turning a corner and with corporate ceos raking in millions of dollars, we started to wonder, is this a good time to ask for a raise? alison kosik joins us live from the new york stock exchange. so is it? >> is it ever a good it time to ask for a raise, that sort of dreaded walk into your boss' office some but the good news is a that for the first time this several years, employers have some wiggle room now, so we are seeing some increases in pay, but those race raises are still very small and overall salaries are only a little bit higher than they were about four years ago because of the big beating we took during the recession. i i want you to take a bigger look here. employers have been raising salaries since last spring. the economy's picking up and companies are making money
again. but look at the size of those bar, you can see there's still a lot of caution there. they're not taking you to the side and saying, come on, take this $20,000 raise. the increases today, they don't come even close to what we saw before the recession hit. but the takeaway here is that employers do have the cash and they are letting go of at least some of it. >> yeah, but nothing over like a 3% raise which frankly isn't much, right? >> be happy you have a job, right, you said it. >> i know, it's depressing, though. so let's say you really think you deserve a raise. do you go back to college and get more education, do you put together a giant portfolio of your successes is this what do you do? >> you can do all that, and keep this in mind if you're doing all that, generally the more education you have, the more you'll get paid. but not everyone has the time or the money to go back to school. and if that happens to be your situation, analyst tells us the best thing you can do is look at your skills and see about if they're transferable to another job, a higher paying job. a lot of tech jobs are very
flexible in that way. you can go from let's say being a programmer to working in the i.t. department or it can be an entirely different career all together. and if that doesn't work for you, play the system at your current job, take on who are responsibilities, learn something new to expand your own skill set. it's all about taking initiative, making yourself more valuable to your employer. you know, what can i do for you some isn't that what it's all about? >> yes, it is. you're right about that. and i'll be practicing that much more very soon. >> you do that. an nba executive makes a public announcement about his private life. phoenix suns ceo comes out as a gay man. in the macho world of sports, that's a brave hinge to thing t. we'll talk about that next. also michael j. fox has been battling parkinson's for years and now's guest star in curb

years, they've been synonymous, so much so that it's now known as the jerry lewis mda telethon. but the charity announced monday that this september the 85-year-old will put on his tux, entertain the masses and help jerry's kids for the last it time. jerry issued a statement which in part read i've hosted the annual telethon since 1966 and i'll be making me final appearance on the show this year by performing my signature song you'll never walk alone. i'll continue to serve mda as its national chairman as i've done since the early 1950s. i'll never desert mda and my kids. it's only six hours this year, but still lewis promised it will be spectacular and he'll thrilled to be a part of it. amazing he's been a part of it since the '50s. >> and something else amazing, michael j. fox going back to it tv and allowing people to joke about his condition. >> yeah, he has this amazing
capacity for self efacing humor about something that some people would see as so dire. fox is telling tv guide is he on board for a story line on curb your enthusiasm. apparently he's playing larry's upsays neighbor in a sub plot which has him poking fun at his own symptoms, but in his typical style, larry thinks that michael j. fox's character is faking it. fox recently spoke with dr. g gupta and he told humor and a positive attitude is what keeps him going. >> what keeps so you optimistic? >> being in the moment. there is no more important moment than right now and i think i say to my wife sometimes, if you get caught up in the worst case scenario and it doesn't happen, you've wasted your time. and if you are caught up in the worst case scenario and does
happen, you've lived it twice. >> curb returns in july and i can't wait. >> it's a great show and i'm glad he'll make a guest star appearance. want information on everything in a.j. has it tonight on "showbiz tonight" at 11:00 p.m. on hln. a young hotel maid accusing a powerful international figure of a serious crime that could wreck his career and put him in prison for years. we're talking about the case against dominique strauss-kahn next. and if your morning coffee didn't wake you up, this news probably did. the "l.a. times" says arnold schwarzenegger has admitted to fathering a child out side of his marriage. we'll go to it our buzz panelists will that and more next.

could be friday before the head of the international monetary fund leaves jail. dominique strauss-kahn will spend the next few days alone in a jail cell on infamous rikers island. a judge denied him bail. he's accused of sexuallies assaulting a maid at his hotel. strauss-kahn was staying at a swanky hotel in a $3,000 a night
suite near times square, broadway theaters and central park. at rikers he's in an 11 by 13 foot cell, he has limited movement outside and he's surrounded by thousands of accused and convicted criminals. strauss-kahn's breakfast at the hotel, scrambled eggs, home fries, toast and ham and cheese sand wish. likers is a bit different. one apple and banana, a box of dried cereal, mini wheats, two pieces of toast, milk and coffee or tea. deborah feyerick talked with a former sex crimes prosecutor in new york about the strauss-kahn case. >> you have a hotel worker going up against one of the most powerful men, the head of the international monetary fund. what sort of evidence needed to be met for police to believe that something in fact did occur? >> that's a great question. obviously body fluids. and where it is. if it's on the bed of the alleged offender, may not be terrifically significant. if it's on the clothing of the victim and i don't know where it
is, that's going to be awfully significant. most hotels in this day and age have cameras in corridors. is there tape of this woman leaving the room, what condition was she in both in clothing disarray and in emotional distress, what condition was he in when he left the room if these things are filmed. >> will this lady have to testify? >> oh, yes. this it case is entirely based on the testimony of the young lady who made the complaint. this case could not proceed without her. >> investigate tore and police went immediately to the airport to get him off the plane. is that an extraordinary measure? >> if it the special victims unit detectives had probable cause, meaning a witness who they believed who told the truth, made an immediate outcry, found evidence to support it, which is not needed but icing on the cake, then they did the only thing that they could do, which was to stop this man before he left the country. >> this young lady has to be terrified. >> this is what they're so good at. the detectives whose pictures i
saw in the paper today, one of them i worked with for more than 20 years, he's not only a great dedeck it difference, they're just the nicest guys in business. they're chosen because they have the manner to hand hold scared witnesses through this process. >> i wanted to bring in deb. there are hotel security cameras, right? i'm sure they're an important factor in this case. >> they are a big factor. they want to see what mr. strauss-kahn looked like. was he nervous, did he appear agitated, was he even looking to see whether there were or are the presence of cameras in that hotel. all of these kind of clues as to just what was going through his mind at that time. one former nypd detective that i just spoke with, he made the point that because of the kind of suite that this is, they would have had their best people cleaning that suite, somebody
who for example if they found a roll lex or piece of jewelry would have taken that to hotel security. so that may have played into why this woman was believed so quickly and why 24 played out as it did. checking our top stories, a week or so after they announced their separation, new insight into the split. schwarzenegger has confirmed reports he fathered a child with a mistress over a decade ago. he says in it a statement there are no excuses and i take full responsibility for the hurt i've caused. government buildings burn in tripoli. libyan officials say nato air strikes hit the headquarters. no word of casualties. and check out this fantastic amateur video of the schul"ende" blasting off. a woman posted to twitter and it's gone viral. he created a media frenzy

sam seeder. welcome and first question. republican candidates for president are dropping like flies. mike huckabee among them. he announced the decision not to run and explained how he got to that decision like this. >> only when i was alone in quiet and reflective moments did i have not only clarity but an inexplicable inner peace, a peace that exceeds human understanding. >> i want that. but what is it? will? >> the man said it was inexplicable, carol. beyond human understanding. i know you think highly of me, but the pressure is a little high there. i think that the peace is having your own it tv show and not subjecting your family and finances to such scrutiny of 300 million americans. you kind of have that, carol. >> well, maybe. robert. >> to me inexplicable peace is donald trump jumping out of the
race. and to mike huckabee, inexplicable peace is building a beautiful home in florida, having a variety show and making a lot of money. >> sam. >> well, i got to agree with the others. i think the bottom line, inexplicable peace is being able to work a calculate tore and eat all you want at the all you can eat buffet. >> oh, geez. okay. i don't even think there's a need for a question. arnold schwarzenegger. go. will. >> schwarzenegger joins a list of people that include bill clinton, mark foley, john edwards. the common characteristic that all these guys have, beyond the fact that they're men, which by the way shouldn't be understated, is that in my opinion they're narcissists. that is a very hard thing to filter for, but it ought to be near the top of our list. don't choose a narcissist. >> robert. >> for the simpler days of john edwards.
another family valued politician bites the dust. but looking past the poll tick, he has an extraordinary beautiful children of four children, a smart wife who is deeply religious and to them my heart goes out. >> sam. >> i feel badly for the family, as well. all i can say is thank goodness the governor vetoed the gay marriage rights on two different occasions because one can only imagine if he had signed that what it would have done to the institution of marriage in his home. coming up we've got our last question, we call it our buzzer beater. we'll ask now that donald trump is out of the running, what did we learn from him? we'll be back.

let's bring our buzz panelists back for one final question. we call it our buzzer beater. ten seconds each. now that donald trump is officially out of the 2012 running, what have we learned from the trump 2012 saga? robert. >> absolutely nothing. the last time he proposed running if for president, he dropped out because he had a phobia about shaking hands. and so the reality is what we
all should learn is that you take a reality it tv character like trump and put him in the reeld world, he couldn't step up to seth meyers. >> your time is up. will. >> he's eating my time. very little. we learned very little. as former president bush tried to say, fool me once, shame on you. fool me twice, shame on me. will guy has pretended to run three times. >> sam. >> we learned that 47% of the republican base will vote for any reality show candidate as opposed to any of 245ir existing candidates. i say snookie is next for them. >> god, i hope not. thanks so much for playing political buzz. it will be back tomorrow. the ceo of the phoenix suns comes out as a gay man while two of his players show up in a psa saying gay slurs are flagrant fouls. are attitudes changing in pro sports and is it a big deal or not? we'll discuss.

made this step and revealed his true self at all. >> what about players. will we see more players coming out? >> i think wi may see more retired players coming out. i think what you're asking, are we ever going to see an actively gay player in one of the major sports come out and that remains to be seen. i'm encouraged by rick, i'm encouraged by all the young people in high school as well as college who come out to their teams are doing quite well. so you have to believe that the environment is becoming much more acceptable where you will see an openly gay player in one of the top sports come out. >> like football, baseball? which do you guess will's the g that what you mean? >> no, is it harder in one sport than another to come out? >> i would think if i had to take a stab at it, i would think basketball only because it's a smaller team environment.

not a big deal, i have gay relatives, i have gay friends. rick obviously works as a top executive. there are gay owners in professional sports. so what you're seeing is the silent majority saying enough is enough. >> many thanks as always. >> hang you. it happened throughout history and libyan women say it's happening again. troops using rape as a weapon. and in this case, there is an extra horrifying twist. we'll have the details for you next.
