Gene Simmons Chalks Up Schwarzenegger's Infidelity To His DNA


In the aftermath of the news of Arnold Schwarzenegger's infidelity to his wife, Maria Shriver, the former governor of California still has one prominent supporter -- Gene Simmons. Indeed, the KISS bassist tells ABC News Radio that Schwarzenegger did nothing wrong, declaring "If he raised wonderful children who are law abiding and charming then he did everything right."

Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced last week that they were separating after it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had slept with a member of his in-house staff over a decade ago and secretly fathered a child with her.

Simmons flatly declares that what Schwarzenegger did isn't cheating -- it's genetics. Says Simmons of unfaithful men in general, "Respectfully, they're not cheating. They're doing what the DNA in their genes tell them to do. They're doing what they're designed to do. The male of the species manufactures hundreds of millions of sperm every day. They have no choice in the matter. They can't take Thursdays off."

Rather than focusing on Schwarzenegger's infidelity, Simmons says everyone should look at his accomplishments: "He kept his family together and still does. He's an immigrant, a legal one...and rose to power in many different forms."
