TLC Explores Weiner, Schwarzenegger and Edwards in "Sex, Lies & Power"
TLC is airing a one hour salacious special called SEX, LIES & POWER this Sunday, July 10 at 10/9c. In the spring of 2011 we were rocked with three powerful scandals involving those of the political elite - Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Edwards and the most recently controversial Anthony Weiner photos. The special proposes the idea that if we restricted monogamous marriage as a qualification to be in public service, we wouldn't have several of our most successful politicians.
With a single tweet, US Congressman Anthony Weiner set off a series of events that smeared his reputation, threatened his marriage and toppled his once promising career. Just weeks earlier, political scion Maria Shriver left her longtime husband Arnold Schwarzenegger after it was revealed that the actor and former governor fathered a child with the household help. And who can forget that Thanksgiving weekend fender bender that brought down golf's reining good guy Tiger Woods? Again and again, high profile men are making news, for being bad. However they do it, we're left wondering: why do they cheat and what makes them think they will get away with it? This show takes an in-depth look at why these masters of the universe risk it all.
