Busy Day For The Hogans: Linda Arrested For DUI, Hulk Threatens To Sue Over Sex Tape

Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Linda Hogan Arrested
By now you’ve almost certainly heard that an excerpt (can you call it an excerpt?) of the sex tape starring Hulk Hogan has been released to Gawker. And now TMZ reports that Hogan and his team of lawyers are readying themselves (to rummmble) for a lawsuit if the site doesn’t pull the video of the Hulkster having sex (reportedly with Heather Clem, wife of his BFF Bubba The Love Sponge) down. The clip is still up as of now, but trust us when we tell you that you probably don’t want to watch, because this man makes love as tenderly as, uh, a wrestler who constantly checks his phone and talks about how full and indigestion-y he is from eating too much. Seriously.

So maybe all this turbulence in her ex’s life created some havoc in Linda Hogan‘s life today too, because we also just found out that she had a rough one and was arrested for DUI last night in Malibu. Hogan, whose blood alcohol was just over the legal limit of .08, coming in at .084, was arrested and later released on $5,000 bail. Linda’s rep commented saying “Linda sincerely regrets the arrest.” It’s certainly a rough day for the pair.

Basketball Wives L.A. Episode 5 Sneak Peek: She Just Keeps Slapping Me In My Face


There’s still plenty of conflict between Draya and Jackie, and it’s going to reach it’s apex on Monday night. In this sneak peek from next week’s Basketball Wives L.A., Laura and Jackie meet for lunch so that Jackie can tell Laura all about how Draya walked out of her at their last lunch date. And since you have to love Laura and her reactions, she tells Jackie that her only response if someone walked out on a lunch with her would be to wrap up the meal and take it to go. “Honestly, I wouldn’t give a s— if anybody walked out of a lunch with me,” she says. But Jackie does give a s—. And she’s hell bent on making Draya (and Draya’s big brown eyes) be her friend. Watch the sneak now and tune in when Basketball Wives L.A. airs Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle Episode 7 Sneak Peek: The Harris Family Fitness Challenge


The Harris family loves junk food. So what’s a dad with six hungry Cookie Monsters to do when he sees them all gobbling sweets for breakfast (and lunch…and dinner)? Challenge them, of course. Shekinah’s not even part of the family, but when she hears about it, her first reaction is “NO.”

“You will be healthy! Fitness is upon you all,” Tip tells them when he announces that he’s giving everyone a week to get in shape. This is probably going to be one whiny week.

T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle airs Monday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Alex McCord Recaps Episode One Of Couples Therapy: This Was Not Supposed To Be About Putting On A Show

Alex Simon Couples Therapy Recap
This season on Couples Therapy, there’s a lot of drama in the house thanks to the incredibly diverse and occasionally divisive personalities that have been cast. One couple, reality veterans Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord, have offered to review and recap each episode of the season to tell us the truth about the way things really were and what they think of the therapy process. This week, Alex weighs in.

I’m trying to think of a witty opening line welcoming our amazing followers to a new show and network, but I didn’t sleep last night and I’ve got nothing, so let’s just get to it…

I don’t think Simon or I knew what to expect from this experience; both of us came in with skepticism and a whole Kevlar suit of self-protection. I’ll let him speak for himself though on his own blog and give you my thoughts.

The day we arrived in the house, another Housewives divorce had been announced. For the previous four years we’d been dealing with shadow personalities created for us in an editing suite based on a collage of soundbites pulled at random. Was it really us? Yes and no…timing and context can really change meaning. There was enough “no” to stress us out to a breaking point. We had to turn our professional lives and careers completely inside out, and we started taking it out on each other. In an effort to protect each other and our children from the aftermath, we were taking bigger and bigger bites out of each other, and you can only do that for so long before you bleed to death. What we have is truly worth fighting for — I want to spend as many years as I have left with my best friend, Simon. Hence, therapy. Yes, it’s on TV. So what? If TV helped us make the mess, why not let TV help clean it up? Read more…

Head To Toe, Couples-Style, With Alex McCord And Simon van Kempen

Alex McCord Simon van Kempen Head To Toe Style
Style is something Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen have become known for, and the veteran reality stars truly know how to complement one another in the fashion department. During a recent trip to the VH1 offices to promote their new show, Couples Therapy, we grabbed a few shots of them and asked them to tell us a little bit about their wardrobe. Known for their Brooklyn roots and eclectic taste, their fashion choices were no different, running from Dior and Cavalli to thrift shop bargains. And, God love her, Alex’s boots are older than her children. That’s my kind of lady. Check out all of our glamour shots below.

Couples Therapy airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.

Dr. Jenn Berman On Episode 1 Of Couples Therapy: Cutting Through The Bulls—

Couples Therapy
Couples Therapy seeks to repair the relationships of couples who have spent significant time in the spotlight, and season two is going to bring the drama in ways that season one never dreamed. Already in the first episode, the focus is on Courtney Stodden, age 17, and Doug Hutchison, age 52, whose thirty-five year age gap has the rest of the new cast pretty much disgusted and distracted. I spoke to Dr. Jenn Berman about her own reservations in bringing Courtney on the show and potentially contributing to the exploitation of a minor while also making sure that the rest of the group received proper care. Here’s the first in our weekly chats with Dr. Jenn.

I feel like my line of questioning for episode one might skew a little Courtney and Doug-heavy, but I have to ask about them first because they definitely held a lot of focus this episode. Were you concerned that they would steal focus throughout the process?

Their influence in the house was very much felt in the first episode, so it makes sense that they’re especially on your mind.

Just seeing the way they interacted with the rest of the cast almost felt disruptive to start, because everyone seemed to get off on the wrong foot with them.

Well, just to back up, initially I was very concerned about the dynamics of them, but I felt very uneasy and uncomfortable working with them given that she was 16 when they married and he was 50, I was really concerned about potentially exploiting her and contributing to that. It’s something I talk about a lot with them just in terms of my own struggles with them, and at one point, you’ll see this coming up, I said to them that my greatest reservation in working with you two is that I don’t want to contribute to the exploitation of a minor and if I feel at any point that I am, I’m going to ask you to leave. Ultimately, the conclusion that I came to was that this is a legally married couple that genuinely has marital issues and that those issues have to be addressed for the sake of their future and tier marriage, and I felt that I could do it in good conscience. It took me a while to get there and you’ll me struggling with that throughout the season. Read more…
