Tom confessed that he had to apologize to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver after joking about Arnold's infidelity during his last Stern show appearance: "I knew that I should reach out." Tom called Maria first ("I just said, 'Hey, I did a really stupid thing...'") and she was just as forgiving as Arnold: "He said, 'I forgive you.'"
Tom said he also attended Arnold's Christmas party in December, only to find it stocked with exotic animals: "He adopted them all just so he could have them at his Christmas party." At one point, Arnold got tired of watching the waitstaff carry around baby kangaroos and asked that his tiger swim in the pool: "And then the tiger, I think, is medicated because it starts struggling in the water. He was like a stripper they've hired that gets f***ed up in the jacuzzi and starts drowning."
