Since the Jerry Springer show made it's way onto the airways back in 1991, seems like airing one's dirty laundry for the whole world to see has become common practice.

The battle between Hulk Hogan and ex-wife Linda Bollea isn't over.

As reported earlier, the wrestling icon, 58, filed court papers last week accusing his ex, 52, of defamation, after she accused him of brutal physical abuse and cheating on her with a male wrestler.

Hulk (real name: Terry Bollea) tried to keep a sense of humor about the fracas while making a Saturday appearance at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in Culver City, Calif.

"After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom," he told Us Weekly, laughing. "Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual." (Linda leveled her claims in both a shocking memoir and interviews promoting the book

Clarified Hogan about Linda's charge that he had a sexual relationship with fellow wrestler Brutus Beefcake: "If any of that was true, I would admit it, and I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It's just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it....If you're going to say I'm something that I'm not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood....I have to answer her back."

Hogan, who shares daughter Brooke, 23, and son Nick, 21, with Linda, told Us he's baffled by the situation.

"It's so ridiculous," he said. "I don't mean to laugh about it, because it's not funny. But it's insane. It doesn't make any sense to me."

Hogan has a lot to celebrate regardless: He and new wife Jennifer McDaniel celebrate their one-year anniversary later this month. "I've moved on with my life, things are great again," he raved. "I know what it's like to be happy again."

Here's more info on this developing case

How do you feel when celebrities, or the averge person airs their dirty laundry out in public?

Do you agree that Hulk Hogan should go after Linda with a lawsuit?

In my opinion, they both should move on and continue making a life for themselves. However, if his ex is going to write about him the way she has in her new book, I don't blame him for filing a lawsuit against her.

Sometimes it is just time to get the popcorn and sit back and enjoy the show and just be happy you are not then. I usually don't pay that much attention to celebs though. I have a hard time feeling sorry for any of them.

I remember back when Springer hit the news because of his show. I had never heard of it or seen it, and out of curiosity, I checked out an episode. It is mind boggling what people will do to get on tv. Do I think Springer is "staged", sure. It gets the ratings.

In all reality, even if a celebrity wanted to keep their private life private, it is so difficult for them to do in this day and age. What Linda is alleging, boy, if she's making that stuff up, she's in a world of financial hurt. On the flip side, if what she is alleging is true, going to be a lot of Hulkamaniacs who are going to be crushed.

People on the 'Ringer' show, get their 15 minutes of fame, go home and will always be remembered for the dumb asses they are!

Celebs well... they're celebs- what can I say? No one has ever accused them of using common sense when it really counts!

I always do my own laundry once a week, to avoid airing it in public!

The Media..brings out the Celebrities BS anyways....
Poor ole Hulk....

Dec 13 @ 2:45PM have been here long enough to know that drama sells. and some people like attention...........even bad attention is better than no attention at all. So yea tho celebs like the attention............lets face it...........has the hulk done anything lately that would have kept him in the public's eye........people would forget he even existed if it wasn't for this.

interesting blog. kudos.
