Wendy Williams Doesn't Buy Linda Hogan's Claim About Hulk Hogan & Brutus Beefcake (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 12th 2011 8:00PM
Hulk Hogan and ex-wife Linda Bollea's messy divorce isn't over yet. On the 'Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) Wendy dished about a report from the St. Petersburg Times that stated the former wrestler is suing his ex-wife for defamation of character. In her new book, 'Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes,' Linda alleges that Hulk had a gay affair with wrestler Brutus Beefcake.

As the show popped up a photo of Brutus, Wendy couldn't hold back her laughter any longer. She reported that Brutus told TMZ he was considering suing Linda too, and Wendy offered a perfect karmic solution. "Well, if you're friends with Hulk you can sue Linda and get some of Hulk's money back for him!"

Linda Hogan details accusations of abuse and violence against Hulk Hogan on 'Today'Linda Hogan's divorce from wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan was a long, public battle that began in 2007 when she filed and ended in 2009 with a settlement. In her new book, 'Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes,' Linda Hogan reveals just how ugly the marriage was. Tuesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Linda Hogan detailed some of her accusations against Hulk, saying that she feared for her life and didn't want to become "another Nicole Simpson."

Matt Lauer read an excerpt from the book in which Linda Hogan described her former husband's episodes of violent rage. "To this day he's never apologized for any of his actions," Hogan said. "But that is something that scared me. I did not want to be a statistic like Nicole Simpson."

Wrestling: The Monday Night War Is Back

by David Hofstede, posted Jan 5th 2010 11:30AM
Hulk HoganWrestling fans still have a nostalgic enthusiasm for the 1990s, when every Monday night brought five hours of choke slams and sleeper holds courtesy of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

Back when WWE's 'Monday Night Raw' aired opposite WCW's 'Nitro,' both companies created new superstars, crafted envelope-pushing stories and even unleashed a few dirty tricks, like WCW revealing match results from WWE's pre-taped episodes, all in a battle for ratings supremacy.

The war ended when WWE purchased WCW in 2001. 'Raw' has aired unopposed ever since -- until tonight.

Hulk Hogan shakes up TV wrestling with move to TNA

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Oct 30th 2009 2:30PM
Hulk Hogan is going from Rock N' Wrestling to TNA.I try to cover professional wrestling here on TV Squad only when something happens that hints at a ratings spike, a celebrity tie-in or a television publicity war. Today, we have news that could score a pin on all three fronts, "Brother!"

Hulk Hogan (in yellow, right), the 80s legend that put WWF WWE on the mat map, announced this week that he's returning to the squared circle and joining the ranks of Spike TV's TNA Wrestling. It's a big step up in exposure for the Florida-based promotion as it struggles to pull away a little market share away from Vince McMahon's Connecticut Death Grip.

While the WWE has either live or taped shows on various cable outlets Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights (with occasional weekend specials on NBC), TNA has used the last couple of years to build an ever-growing following in Spike's Thursday night schedule.

Hulk Smash! Hulk Hogan Returning to Wrestling

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Oct 28th 2009 3:50PM
Hulk HoganHeads up, wrestling fans: Hulkamania is back.

The iconic Hulk Hogan has signed a deal with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, the second largest wrestling organization behind the WWE. Hogan's deal will bring him back to where he began, on a full-time basis.

Aside from a few sporadic appearances this decade, Hogan has been largely out of the wrestling spotlight. But that's not to say he's faded out of the pop-culture limelight. You might remember a little VH1 show called 'Hogan Knows Best,' which followed the trials and tribulations of Hogan juggling his marriage and raising two teenage children -- Nick and Brooke, with the latter starring in the spin-off 'Brooke Knows Best.'

Note to The Next Mrs. Bonaduce: Don't do it!

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 6th 2008 1:14PM
Danny Bonaduce in The Jerk TheoryYou'd think that celebrity couples would start getting the picture after a while. Don't do a reality show! It's just the death knell of any marriage, and I think you can probably name a few obituaries in that category: Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, Hulk and Linda Hogan, and Danny and Gretchen Bonaduce, to name a few.

PopEater is reporting that the Bonaduce's divorce is a done deal, and he has to shell out $16K a month in spousal and child support. Guess how he's going to earn the cash -- a dating reality show called The Next Mrs. Bonaduce!

Now, what girl in her right mind would participate in such a fiasco? I mean, I have to admit that I watched his show, Breaking Bonaduce, a few times, and was weirdly transfixed to his train wreck of a life.

Hulk Hogan to join his son in jail?

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 15th 2008 8:04PM
Hulk HoganNow, that Nick Hogan is cozied up in a new cell for his prison sentence, his father might be joining him. VH1's Matthew Muro is reporting that Linda Hogan, the Hulkster's estranged wife, wants to send the former pro-wrestler to jail for not paying his portion of a Las Vegas condo, a property worth 4.2 milion dollars. If Linda gets her wishes, Hulk Hogan would be put in Pinellas County Jail in Florida, the very same jail that holds his son.

VH1 offers the following as reasons why Hulk has not paid his bills: "Is he short on cash? Probably not. Is he planning to hit the slammer intentionally to protect little Nick? No way. Or could it be that he's trying to cut off Linda's cash flow so that she can't lavish any more gifts on her 19-year-old boy toy? Bingo!!"

Should Nick Hogan have been moved to a new jail cell?

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 9th 2008 2:23PM
Nick Bollea HoganThe Hulkster's son, in jail for a driving accident that put his friend in a coma, just got moved last Friday into a new jail cell. He was serving his eight-month prison sentence in solitary confinement after pleading no contest to the three charges: reckless driving, drunk driving, and having tinted windows on his Supra.

In a conversation with his mother, Linda Hogan, Nick (real last name Bollea) described the jail cell as half the size of his bathroom with no windows. According to Nancy Grace, the cell measures 12 X 16. Nick's new digs include a cable television, unlimited phone use, a snack bar, and three other juvenille inmates. According to the Sherrif's office, he was being held in solitary confinement becuase he is seventeen and therefore too young to be with the rest of the criminal population. His lawyers apparently filed a lawsuit against the sheriff's office saying that the decision to keep their client in solitary confinement is a violation of his privacy.

What do you think? Should Nick have stayed in solitary confinement until July 27th, his eighteenth birthday?

'Shenanigans' claimed in Hogan divorce

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 28th 2008 10:28AM
Hulk Hogan and Linda HoganThe Hulkster's soon-to-be-ex is accusing him of trying to pull a fast one on her. Linda Hogan has requested that the judge freeze Hulk Hogan's (real name: Terry Bollea) assets to prevent him from spending the proceeds from the sale of the couple's ten million dollar mansion. She goes further to claim that Terry is trying to dupe her out of other assets from "legal shenanigans".

Hogan is best known as the professional wrestling icon of the 80's. The couple appeared together on the VH1 reality television series Hogan Knows Best. Hulk Hogan can currently be seen on television hosting NBC's American Gladiators.

American Gladiators renewed already?!

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 14th 2008 11:41AM
StealthThat didn't take long. Apparently, the absence of new Two and a Half Men episodes lead to the American Gladiator premiere getting the highest ratings of any new show this season, and an average of 12 million viewers sampling the first two episodes. All of this is enough for "starving-for-a-hit" NBC to sign up the competition show for another season. If the solid ratings continue, I'd look for NBC to go all Who Wants to be a Millionaire? with it and put it on every night of the week, sandwiched around new episodes of Deal or No Deal.

No word yet on when the new season will begin (this debut season is a short one wrapping next month) or how many episodes have been ordered, but this means it's not too late for me to try out to be on the show. Or better yet, if I start working out now, maybe I can be the thirteenth Gladiator. My Gladiator name will be Pudge, and luckily the giant cotton swab is already my weapon of choice in melee combat.

NBC getting more real in the new year

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 30th 2007 1:41PM

Hogan Knows BestNBC unveiled its schedule for the new year and, with scripted episodes becoming scarce, it is predictably heavier on the reality side. Joining existing shows Deal or No Deal and The Singing Bee are the returning 1 vs. 100, The Biggest Loser and The Apprentice. Returning after almost fifteen years, wrestling legend Hulk Hogan hosts American Gladiators. In it, eight "gladiators" face competition from everyday joes like you and me in a variety of physical challenges. Of course, when I say "like you and me" I mean you. Me they'd snap in half but I got a good feeling about you. I think you can take 'em. Now get in there, tiger!
