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.

Look at that smug piece of cr*p. Wouldn't you just love to nail him dead center in the forehead with a hammer?? Trust me. It won't affect his thought processes at all.

Sad in California    

Read below what I found on his driving record. Any parent in theirright mind would have taken his car away after his first offense. Hisparents are 100% responsible for what happened to John...they should all be in jail. If you want to see the condition of him, go tohttp://celebslam.buzznet.com/category/nick-hogan and scroll down. Itliterally makes me to sick to my stomach to see how the entire family is so selfish, shallow and completely self-absorbed.

(Was Nick Hogan going too fast and too furious? Three days after losing control of his yellow Toyota Supra sports carand smashing into a palm tree, critically injuring his friend, HulkHogan's teenage son is now under scrutiny by police in Clearwater,Florida, for a checkered driving history that includes four speedingtickets racked up in the past year alone. Per Florida driving records obtained by Tampa Bay Fox 13 affiliateWTVT, the 17-year-old Hogan—real name Nick Bollea—was nailed lastSeptember driving 105 mph in a 70 mph zone in Collier County in nearbyNaples; in February, he was ticketed for driving 57 mph in a 30 mph inDade County; then in April, he was busted for driving 106 mph in a 70mph zone in Osceola County. Last but not least, just two weeks ago while zooming around the cityof Pinellas Park, the Hogan Knows Best star was nabbed going 82 mphin a 45 mph zone—nearly double the speed limit—and in aconstruction zone, no less.)

Nick is right. From the calls posted for all to hear it's clear that his mom is more about filling her own "look at me!" needs, passing the phone around and repeating to others in the room what Nick is saying. He's got to feel like a prop in her selfpity show.

Yes, it's a horrible thing that happened and Nick should have to pay his dues for being responsible for the accident, but someone's putting up addresses to boycot anything Hogan??? Let's boycott something that's really going to effect the rest of us, like LIEberals. A BAN ALL LIBERALS PETITION. What's the address to send complaints to CNN for their outrageously one sided, lieing b/s???

just wondering    

must be surreal to be a Hogan / Bollea at a computer this weekend, then again, besides Nick who doesn't have access and Brooke who is busy thanking her Bro and John for teaching her a lesson abt buckling up, does Hulk know how to operate one, can be multi-tasking at times. Lynda thank the lord has that cutie boat boy pressing the right buttons for her.

Hulk should not talk bad to the kids about their mother. He should stay the PARENT and work out whatever he can with his soon-to-be-ex and keep his kids out of it. It's his job to parent and protect them, not to treat them as friends of his.

when nick says his mom is "doing her thing"....it sounds very suspicious. Like her "thing" might be drugs or alcohol.

Lawsuit Over Tragic Crash Takes Hulk Hogan's Family to Task
Date posted: 03-25-2008


PINELLAS COUNTY, Florida — A civil lawsuit was filed Monday in Florida on behalf of the young man seriously injured last year when Nick Hogan smashed his Toyota Supra into a palm tree. The suit uses standard language in seeking damages "that exceed $15,000." The most intriguing part of the lawsuit is the detailed picture it paints of the Hulk Hogan family as one that encouraged "reckless" driving.

Nick Hogan, whom the lawsuit describes as a "professional drift driver," is the son of Hulk Hogan, the former pro wrestling star, and Linda Bollea. The family is listed as defendants by their given names: Terry Bollea (Hulk Hogan), Linda (Hogan) Bollea and Nicholas Bollea. The lawsuit holds the parents responsible for "Nicholas Bollea's lack of judgment and careless manner of driving on the roads in the state of Florida." It also claims that Hulk Hogan bought alcohol that his son allegedly drank on the day of the crash.

"Oh, I love it, I love it," the lawsuit alleges Linda Bollea said about her son's street racing. "The rush, the speed on the road, stereoblasting [sic], heartpounding [sic], racing in between all the cars, dodging the cops. It's awesome." The suit was filed in the circuit court of the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Florida's Pinellas County, where the family lived at the time of the crash.

The lawsuit also claims that Hulk Hogan knew, or should have known, that the Supra had been modified to have "in excess of 400 horsepower."

The lawsuit charges that Nick Hogan and Daniel Jacobs, who is also named in the suit, were engaged in "racing from light to light." Nick Hogan was behind the wheel of a 1998 Toyota Supra that he jointly owned with his father; Jacobs was behind the wheel of a 2003 Dodge Viper owned by Hulk Hogan. John Graziano, the 23-year-old Iraq War veteran who was a passenger in Nick Hogan's vehicle, is on a ventilator as a result of the crash, according to Florida media.

Among the more interesting details in the lawsuit: the list of speeding tickets given to Nick Hogan. It alleges that he blew past a Florida highway trooper on September 17, 2006, at 107 mph in a 70-mph zone on the highway known as "Alligator Alley." Later that day, he was stopped by another trooper for driving 115 mph in a 70-mph zone. The lawsuit claims Nick Hogan would "practice and/or engage in 'drifting' on the public roads in the state of Florida."

What this means to you: Enabling is the word that comes to mind, at least if you believe the lawsuit's claim that the Hogan family encouraged their son's need for speed. — Anita Lienert, Correspondent

It is perfectly legal for these tapes to be released. Items that are part of the public record can be requested by anyone from the appropriate governmental agency under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act ("FIA"). Look that act up under Google to learn about it.

In Florida, jailhouse telephone conversations are considered to be part of the public record in the same way that booking photos and copies of court decisions are. Several days ago, one or more local Florida TV stations requested copies of the Nick Hogan phone conversations via an FIA request, and they were granted these recordings. The recordings were then were publicly published by the TV station(s). This is totally legal.

Some time since then, TMZ got a hold more recordings of these conversations. It's not clear whether they did so via their own FIA requests, or whether they are just re-reporting the conversations that were previously released to other media sources. In either case, TMZ obtained these recordings in a perfectly legal manner, and it is equally legal for them to be published on the TMZ site.

If you check on Google, you will see that there have been many cases in the past where jailhouse recordings were released to the press under the FIA, and each of these cases were completely legal. Therefore, there is nothing unusual about these Nick Hogan recordings having come into the public view.

Perhaps she's ashamed and embarrassed by your behavior, Nick. I would be too, if I were your mother.
