Nick and Hulk Take Turns Bashing Linda

5/25/2008 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Hogan family doesn't just talk trash about the Graziano family -- they also talk behind each other's backs.
Nick and Hulk: Click to listen!
In one call, Hulk trashes Nick's mom Linda, saying she spends more money on lawyers than on calling cards for Nick. In the second, Nick complains that Mommy Dearest would rather pass the phone around to other people than talk to her son.

#25 Jen ~ with this story in particular (while I cannot agree with all), TMZ is providing a public service in the entertainment field believe it or not. I know there are far more important things to be said in the news world, but this is entertainment news and it is providing truths whether people agree or not. TMZ has done nothing wrong by posting these. If Nick were not "famous" by the reality show provided by the Hogan family to make money, no one would have any interest in this story whatsoever.

Except for the young marine's family, that is.

The famous are #1) NOT GOD and #2) Can’t have it both ways. You can’t want to have fame, then expect special treatment because of it when you break the law. If any other non-famous person were recorded having the same lack of remorse, it WOULD be used against them. Other jailhouse calls have made the headlines which resulted in their prosecution. Serial killer Aileen Wournos ("Monster") was recorded about her involvement in crime, and jailhouse calls were used in the trial that resulted in her death sentence.

I’m not trying to single you out personally, Jen. Much love to you. But most people who have been involved in injury or death of a loved one such as Nick Hogan’s drinking and driving, this hits WAY close to home, thus the venom you see. Hogans are deadly careless at best, and their portrayal of remorse was nothing more than a performance in a courtroom. Now the whole world knows better. THANK YOU TMZ.

Amazingly, it takes a helluva lotta chutzpah to complain about his cell and 8 months worth, when it could have been a far, FAR worse sentence for him.

unfortunately thats NOT HOW THE WORLD WORKS "MEEEEE" nor how the laws are structured. YOU DRINK AND DRIVE and put other peoples lives at risk, YOU DO THE TIME.
He should not be allowed to have a license for 10 years at least and his parents are the ones responsible for sure. Thats why they are not blaming the kid... the father encouraged and enabled this behavior- the racing, the cars, and the booze.

Well, it looks like John paid the ultimate price for getting in the car with a drunk driver, that is if he knew he was drunk since it seems nick was drinking with his pops earlier in the day. Also BUSH is at fault. Afterall, do these war vets get the appropriate mental therapy after being released?? I mean, this kid was obviously dealing with some major issues which impaired judgement.
As for the drunk driver, he also has a price to pay which imo is too measely to fit the crime. His parents are to blame as well. The parents are kids themselves it seems.

Actually chosen that is how the law is structured. Like just here said “when they go to civil court their defense will most likely be Contributory Negligence which means,
“Is a common law defense to a claim based on negligence, an action in tort. It applies to cases where plaintiffs have, through their own negligence, contributed to cause the damages they incurred as a result of defendants' negligence. For example, a pedestrian crosses a road carelessly and is hit by a driver who is also driving carelessly. Contributory negligence is distinguishable from contribution, which is a claim brought by one or more defendants seeking to have a third party pay some or all of any money damages awarded to a plaintiff” Wikipedia.

We aren't talking about CIVIL COURT, now are we? We are talking about NICK DOING TIME IN PRISON> THEREFORE your excerpted summation of the law has no basis in this matter.

And also now that you brought up the CIVIL case, the hogans will likely lose because the father has contributed to the reckless behavior.

WRITE VH1 and NBC!    

Nick was under 18 when he had the accident. The parent's are responsible for the minor child until they are under 18. Nick is still 17 and even if they sued now, Hogans would still be responeible. In any event, it doesn't matter. You sue who was responsible at the TIME OF THE ACCIDENT, not the time of the filing of the suit.

Nick was ALSO under THEIR insurance at the time. For all those who say that Nick was a child, forgive him etc, I PRAY your children don't screw up like this while they are under 18 and under your insurance, because you will be liable for the civil judgments and your kids butt will go to jail MUCH longer then 8 months. Apply common sense to the situation. What would happen if this was REAL life?

MEE:

Couch meds kicking in...sorry.Nick had insurance, that drags in the insurance company. The hogan's have LLC's and they will also be named in the suit as Nick was a minor and Terry supplied the alcohol.
