Which One’s His Daughter Again?

Hulk Hogan and his girlfriend, Jennifer McDaniel, made an appearance at Brooke’s 21st birthday in Las Vegas hotspot Pure last night. I have so much trouble believing that Brooke is only 21 years old. I feel like this girl has lived four lifetimes already, only two of which she’s spent ratting out her mother’s drug habit to the press. Linda Hogan was, of course, not there, unless she and her boyfriend are hiding in Jennifer’s breast implants. Actually, that’s unlikely, because those implants look like they’re older than Linda’s boyfriend.

And Brooke? Lay off the spray-tan, sweetie. Your father should not be your barometer for an appropriate face color.

Hogan Victim’s Dad Arrested for Putting a Hit Out on His Wife

Edward James Graziano

Stay classy, Pinellas County!

The people involved in this story just get crazier and crazier.

Edward James Graziano, father of the man injured in the Nick Bollea automobile crash, has been arrested and accused of plotting to kill his estranged wife Debra.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, the arrest came as a result of a two-and-a-half month investigation in which Graziano is alleged to have held multiple meetings and negotiations with a tipster and an undercover detective posing as go-between to a hit man in order to solicit the murder of his wife.

Authorities said he later paid to have the crime committed.

According to detectives Graziano, 53, paid $1,100 in cash, another $1,000 in a personal check and a $13 gift card to Westshore Pizza to have his estranged wife murdered.

The Criminal Investigative Division began its investigation in mid-December.

Detectives believe the motive was divorce/financial related. They also say Graziano wanted Debra killed in an automobile accident.

Waaaaait, so he was going to pay $2100 and a pizza to have his wife killed??? Who the hell ACCEPTED that offer? I know the economy’s rough, guys, but this is just silly. Professional killers should totally be charging more than $2100 and a pizza! No wonder this all got bungled. You get what you pay for, Mr. Graziano!

Linda Hogan Sucking Face with Her Teenage Boyfriend in Front of Her Son

I guess after spending a few months in solitary confinement in the slammer, not a lot of things in the free world bother you. Case in point: Nick Bollea was not phased by his middle-aged mother sucking face with her 19-year-old boyfriend, Charlie Hill, right next to him at Sundance.

Linda’s jailbird son Nick also attended the festival and seemed to have no problem with his mama consistently making out with (not to mention canoodling intimately with) her boyfriend who was actually his high school pal. Let’s just say their behavior would have been better left for an area of privacy rather than for the pedestrians of Park City.

Okay, I’m sorry, but I could not, as a fully grown woman, make out with somebody with that much acne. I mean, it’s not like this kid has a pimple or two. The entire left side of his face is erupting. How can she keep a straight face about this? It feels like the equivalent of me calling a friend and being like, “My boyfriend and I are running a little bit late. I’m teaching him how to tie his shoe today.”

Also spotted at Sundance: Headcase/heiress Courtenay Semel, sucking face at TAO with her girlfriend, headcase/heiress/adoptive fucking parent, Casey Johnson, who seems to have forgiven her for setting her hair on fire a couple weeks ago.

Graziano Family Taking the Hogans to Court

Man, you know, it kind of sucks to be sick and stuck in bed on your birthday. But I’ve had all day to lie around the house and think about the things I’m grateful for. I’m grateful that I can drink Gatorade and it stays down now. I’m grateful I have two parents who are doting on me while I’m sick. I’m grateful that I have a ton of friends who called to wish me a happy birthday, and I’m grateful for all your readers who left well wishes in the comments. I’m grateful that I have an otherwise healthy body that I know will recover fine from this evil food poisoning. And, most importantly, I’m grateful that I’m not a Hogan or a Graziano.

The family of John Graziano — the kid who was severely injured, and remains in critical condition, after an August 26 street-racing accident — has filed suit against the Hogan family: specifically, Linda, Terry and son Nick. You can check out all the legal docs here, but basically they’re alleging that both parents knew of Nick’s tendency to drive recklessly, and they didn’t help matters by allowing him to get his car all souped up. They’re also filing suit against the driver of the other car in the accident, Daniel Jacobs, who was apparently driving a vehicle lent to him by the Hogan family. Oh, and they’re also charging that Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan) purchased alcohol for the underage kids prior to the accident.

Dayum.

This is all so sad, for everybody involved.
