Graziano's Dad: Hogans Are as Fake as Their Hair

5/27/2008 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ed and Debra Graziano -- John Graziano's parents -- are beyond outraged by the conversations between members of the Hogan family that were caught on tape. Both parents have issued statements expressing their frustration with the Hogan family's actions.

Debra Graziano says, "They don't care a bit about my son, all they are doing is planning a party." John defends their parenting (which was criticized by Linda Hogan) saying, "My wife lives for her children, and nobody knew my son better than my wife did. My wife is the best mother there is in the world."

Ed points out that the remorseful and sad family the Hogans portrayed themselves to be in court clearly was contradicted by what was heard on the tapes."The reason he (Nick) was put in jail is to think about what he did to my son," says Graziano. "That's the last thought on his mind."

Another angel taken    

************************************ This was also posted******************************************************

St. Petersburg Police have released a report with details on the brawl among Lance Corporal
John Graziano's family members on Thursday. The report says Christin Graziano
-- John's sister -- said that "her family received bad news concerning her brother's
condition and her other brother, Michael, took it really hard." After Michael was crying
for hours and finally fell asleep on the floor, their father, Edward Graziano,
entered and started screaming for Michael to fix his computer.

When he was asked to lower his voice,
Edward left the room but returned 45 minutes later and allegedly grabbed Christin
by both wrists, shaking her and yelling, "You are dead to me, you are dead to me!"
Christin told cops that her father then threw a cold cup of coffee in brother Michael's
face. Family members were then able to get Edward out of the room and lock the door.
Police showed up at Bayfront Hospital moments after the incident, but could not find Edward
. He was arrested at the hospital the next day for violating a domestic violence
injunction that his wife, Debra, has against him.

John Graziano, an Iraq war vet, was the passenger in Nick Hogan's car crash on Aug. 26.
Unconfirmed reports say that his condition has deteriorated.
TMZ spoke to Michael Graziano, who offered no comment on his brother's condition.

********So the Graziano family have had issues with eachother Before this and are Not Perfect. In any case Who is?**********

While the whole situation regarding the tragic and senseless accident has become a circus of who is responsible or not, the saddest part is to see the patriarch of the Hogan family condone the irresponsible actions of his own child. Nick is a child - we all heard it on the tapes. What we see on tv is just what it is - a show of shows! They have to make money somehow, right? Ever more strange is the relationship daddy has with his baby girl. I've watched their show on several occassions and after careful viewing have come to terms that daddy is attracted to his daughter. What kind of father would rub in suntan lotion between his grown daughters' legs from behind and not mind that the entire world is going to see it? That's why he did not like her photo shoot for her first CD release - did you see him watching from a distance. It killed him, but he couldn't stop staring at her almost bare body. Probably reminded him of his wife long ago. He's not a well person - Hogan, you should be ashamed of your incestuous thoughts! The whole family is sick. My thoughts and prayers to John who has paid the ultimate price for his own careless actions. The Graziano's have to live with his choice of not being safe. Nick doesn't care - plain and simple! Linda and Terry - karma will come, count on it!

The Hogans are cowards, especially their son Nick. I hope the reality show Nick is banking on doesn't happen, and if a channel picks it up people should boycott it. People should boycott anything Hogan, which includes Hulk Hogan and his show on NBC (American Gladitor). Nick and the entire Hogan family are cowards and are doing a horrible in handling this situation. I hope the Graziano family get everything they ask for. To the Hogan family you are cowards! I bet if the roles were reversed the Hogans would be crying foul.

GO Graziano family, teach these cowards a lesson!

These Hogans, or should we call them a bunch of HOGS ans have some nerve. Who do they think they are? They present themselves as some BS blond gods but the truth is the are phoney, ugly on the inside and out. I will never forget seeing that dumb a*** Hulk hogan punch some reporter for asking him a question about steriods- I think the show was 20/20 a long time ago, anyways he really hurt that poor reporter. I remember thinking what a ASS that guy was-never liked him,especially after that. And then I hear about this, these people are shameless and patetic, they better start getting are there knees and begging the real God for mercy-HE IS BIGGER! Wouldnt want to be in HIS hands. I feel for that poor family and there son I hope they get some kind of comfort. As for the phoney balonies they better as hell check themselves before it is too late for them!!!!

Lose your turn and go straight to jail. A phrase many of us in our youth may have seen while playing Monopoly with the family at the dining room table. However,it's obvious the Hogan family probably never spent quality time with their children. Life more than likely has been going so fast for them with all the trips to car dealerships,malls,nail salons,etc..
Now the next thing the majority of us who make a living working hard and staying in the same workplace,home and take on an average 2 week vacations each year will hear is how sorry the Hogan family is for all. Well, they had their chance . So it's
fortunate that Nick is going to have to learn OUR way of how life works. The taped interview heard should have been one of him sobbing and pleading as well as asking whether or not his buddy is going to be allright. Let alone the parents telling him son you screwed up and should be grateful that John survived. Look at the position you have put the family in so Live and Learn a lesson we never gave you as well as we are somewhat to blame.Bottom line here is that the Hogans need to suffer this setback they are about to face. Worst case scenario is we will see Hulk doing his pansy in tights thing again and have start climbing the ladder all over again. Oh, by the way I've worked hard all my life and will provide what it takes to hit the big time easily. Because I 've found the right path to go down ....

AS PARENTS (TO NICK) YOU NEED TO BE TEACHING HIM WHAT "RESPONSIBILITY" MEANS AND IS....... TOO BAD FOR THE CURRENT SITUATION 'NICK' PUT HIMSELF IN - EXTREMELY UNFORTUNATE FOR WHAT HE CHOSE TO DO - NOTE: PASSENGER IS & WILL FOREVER (AS WELL AS HIS FAMILY) PAY THE PRICE FOR THIS CHOICE..... PAY ATTENTION NICK & FAMILY **** YOU MUST NOW PAY THE PRICE WITH WHAT THE LAW STATES AS A CONSEQUENCE.... QUIT WHINNING - DO YOUR DAMN TIME & MOM SHUT THE HELL UP TO YOUR SON ABOUT HOW HORRIBLE HE HAS IT IN THERE & YOUR COMMENT TO JOHN'S MOTHER, "SHE HAS HER SON" ! - I CLEARLY UNDERSTAND WHY YOUR SON'S WHINNING - YOU'RE LEADING HIM TOO. YPU NEED TO BE AN ACCEPTABLE PERSON (MOTHER) & LEAD YOUR SON TO UNDERSTAND THAT ALL OF 'HIS' CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES.... IN THE BIG PICTURE OF HIS PUNISHMENT - IT'S PRETTY LIGHT - SO QUIT YOUR *@!#!!!!!!ING COMPLINING.. ESPECIALLY TO HIM - ALL YOU'RE DOING IS WHIMPIN' HIM DOWN MORE.... TEACH HIM ABOUT ACCEPTANCE - MAYBE NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO INTRODUCE HIM TO A HIGHER POWER (NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT) MAYBE THE CHAPLIN ???? OR WHATEVER YOUR FAITH (IF YOU HAVE ONE?)
GOOD GOD - SAY A PRAYER FOR JOHN & HIS FAMILY ALREADY................ OH YEAH - IF YOU HAVE TIME TO BREAK AWAY FROM VEGAS CLUBBING OPENINGS -???? CLEAR PICTURE OF YOUR PRIORITIES IS WHAT YOU'RE GIVIN US............................" THERE'S NOTHING WORSE THAN FUNCTIONAL STUPIDITY & NOTHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN IGNORANCE IN ACTION " BOTH SIDES & ALL OF YOU HAVE MY PARYERS.......

Nick is at fault for driving.. At the same time, John was the adult, John bought the beer and John chose to not wear a seatbelt. Nick deserves the jail time totally, but this entire accident was NOT all his fault, the ADULT that bought the beer was John. I can't stand Linda at all and she needs to grow up and remove her hooker shoes.. but at the same time, I am a parent, I would probably say some of the same things that she was saying. No one knows if she has said on the calls that Nick should just face the jail time and move on. And Hulk only said "I dont know what kind of a person John was to deserve this" meaning Hulk believes that good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. He was not saying "John is bad or this or that." The whole situation is unfortunate and it is possible that the same situation can happen to anyone.. no one an say that they would react a certain way if they were in the same shoes. And how do we know that Nick has not sat on that phone crying about John's condition? People are being so judgemental!

Kourtney, John didn't buy the beer. Hulk did. They have him and Nick on camera that day.

Nick is responsible because there can only be ONE driver. Period.

I see this turning fron John G and being set up for how much $$ can we get. If Hogan wasn't a celebrity or had no $$ there would be no Nancy Grace TV show. What a sham!

oh,come on John is a grown man he knew what he was getting in 2!it was not the 1st time Nick drove fast!!Nick is a little kid what was John doing with him n e ways!!John did not have 2 get in the car but he did and its his fault!John had 2 of known how Nick drove!! The Hogans should NOT have 2 pay 4 anything that has 2 do with John!!He got in the car ,he should pay!!I love the Hogans,but I do believe that they should have taken the car away from Nick along time ago and they would not be in this situation with Johns family blaming them for something that was John's fault for getting his self into!!
