God Hates The Hogans
Hulk Hogan isn't having the best year. The ageing wrestler has had to deal with tragedy, scandal and crisis, and we don't mean squeezing into an old WWF costume.
First his son Nick Hogan landed in the slammer after a spot of reckless driving which left his mate John with permanent brain damage. To add insult to serious injury, it was only a few months earlier that Hulk got the news (from a reporter no less) that his wife of 24 years, Linda Hogan, had filed for divorce and wanted half of his estimated $9.5 million fortune. And she'll probably get it too. Why? Because Hulk cheated on her with a friend of his daughter, that's why. 33 year old Christiane Plante apologised in an interview for hurting Hulk's wife and daughter.
"My relationship with Terry (Hulk Hogan) began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending. She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed. Christiane told The Enquirer. "Terry is a good man, good father and good friend, and he and I grew close at a time when he was going through a very difficult period. It seemed right then, but I know it was wrong." Could it be that the marriage was ending because the extra marital affair was common knowledge among the crew of his reality series?
Sure, Linda may have had so many cosmetic enhancements it appears she's been embalmed, but surely after all his time in the biz, Hulk should know to seek out discreet liaisons rather than rooting his daughters' best friend. More disappointing is that the strength of the reality series 'Hogan Knows Best' was the portrayal of a family who didn't succumb to the controversy and calamity that plagues so many Happy Hollywood Families.
But the trials and tribulations keep appearing faster than Hulk's hair plugs.
Not to be outdone, Linda has showed Hulk up by dating a slightly older version of their incarcerated son Nick. Ew. Linda met 19 year-old Charley Hill when he was playing sports with her son, and it's safe to say that Brooke is like, totally grossed out by her mum's relationship.
"I personally don't like it at all or condone it, but she's my mom, so I have to show her support."
Brooke adds, "I am just staying the course and dealing with it and supporting my family...I'm actually on my way to see Nick now...You know, I thought we were one of the normal Hollywood families. It's crazy watching it all fall apart, but I hope for the best."
Wrong on just so many levels. But if all that is the knife in the back, then this is the twisting blade.
Just last week, Brooke was involved in a serious car crash in Tampa, Florida. Brooke was slammed into by another person who lost control of his vehicle when trying to change lanes. The car that crashed into Brooke was speeding; ironic considering that Nick's speeding and resulting car crash now has him in the clink. Perhaps it was her personal 'airbag's that saved the day
Poor old Hulk. Maybe we should just wack him in the balls with a giant mallet to top off what has been a splendid year...
