Professional wrestler Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife Linda was a guest on the Oct. 29 edition of “Access Hollywood Live” to promote her new memoir “Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes.” And of course hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover had to bring up the infamous Hulk sex tape.
“It really is quite an embarrassment for our family,” Linda tells the hosts in the video clip below. “I’m not really shocked because I knew that he was having affairs and I knew that he was cheating.”
Hulk insists he had no idea he was being filmed in bed with Heather Clem, the wife of his radio DJ friend Bubba the Love Sponge. Following the confidential settlement of a lawsuit Hulk brought against Mr. Love Sponge, Bubba read a statement on his syndicated radio show confirming that Hulk had no knowledge of the tape.
“It actually did make me upset,” Linda says about seeing the tape. “I’ve seen him on TV so much, but this was different. To see your husband in a room with another woman … It’s a whole life of deception. I’m glad to be away from that now.”
As an added bonus: Near the end of the clip, Bush refers to the sex tape as “the Hulk Hogan love tape thing,” which somehow makes this whole mess even creepier.
