Hulk Hogan's wife files for divorce
At the age of 54, it looks like the Hulkster is on the market again after twenty-plus years. According to MSNBC, Hulk Hogan's wife filed for divorce. To make matters even worse, apparently he didn't even find out until the reporter investigating the story told him that the paperwork had been submitted to a Florida court.
In their VH1 reality TV series Hogan Knows Best, Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) and his wife Linda attended couple's counseling. On the show, they appeared to reconcile. This is why reality TV should in no way be confused with real life.
Celebrity marriages always seem doomed to fail and marriages in the wrestling industry seem even riskier (if the people involved even survive the experience). Even on their reality show, the couple has obviously been having difficulties for a while. I do hope they reconcile, but I don't have great expectations that they will. Dealing with the public spotlight is a lot of pressure on anybody.
Between this and Hogan's son getting busted recently for drunk driving, it should make for an interesting new season of Hogan Knows Best (if there is one). It certainly creates enough drama. Plus the strike doesn't even affect them since they don't use writers. This could be a ratings bonanza.
