Arnold Schwarzenegger faces legal threats, was forced to confess by Maria Shriver

It's time for Arnold Schwarzenegger to retain O.J. Simpson's legal team, because two women who used to be in his life have employed some heavy hitters bound to bleed him dry. That explains why he has to go back to making movies.

People reports that wife Maria Shriver has tapped L.A. powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser, who has helped the likes of Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds and Nick Lachey. We could have predicted that, but meanwhile, RadarOnline says Little House on the Prairie alum Gigi Jeffers, a.k.a Gigi Goyette has retained the services of Gloria Allred, who notably helped Tiger Woods' mistresses Rachel Uchitel and Joslyn James.

There's no word on why the 52-year-old Jeffers is lawyering up, but the fact she claims they had a fling in 1975 when she was 16 may have something to do with it. She told the U.K.'s Daily Mirror that when it comes to Arnold, "there were so many other women. About 13 have come out of the woodwork."

Add to this a TMZ report that Schwarzenegger financed a quiceanera party for baby-mama housekeeper Mildred "Patty" Baena's niece and word from HollywoodLife that Maria even used to joke that Patty's son looked like Arnold -- not to mention Maria had to force a confession out of the pair, according to Radar -- and you've got to think his head is exploding like the end of Total Recall. Ain't no Martian reactor gonna release oxygen this time, Arnie.
