Arnold Schwarzenegger has been dealt a savage blow on the eve of his election run for California Governor - by actress and fervent Democrat CYBILL SHEPHERD.

The MOONLIGHTING star, who once dated current Governor Gray Davis, fears California has become "the laughing stock of the world" now that Arnie has announced his political ambitions.

Furious Shepherd says, "If he wins, that will be the worst tragedy in the history of California.

"I think he's a real hypocrite. He has a past that's gonna come out. I'm not going to reveal what it is but it's not going to be pretty."
