She is best known for her role on the American reality television show Hogan Knows Best. Linda met Terry Bollea a.k.a Hulk Hogan in a restaurant in Los Angeles. For nearly two years, the couple had a long-distance relationship mostly over the telephone. They married in 1983 in a wedding attended by Andrᅢᄅ the Giant, Vince McMahon, and other wrestling personalities. They have two children, Brooke (1988) and Nick (1990). In 1995, Linda appeared on Hulk Hogan's album Hulk Rules, where she sang back-up vocals along with The Wrestling Boot Band.
