The reality show Hogan Knows Best has had a rough year, what with Nick Hogan’s arrest for his involvement in a car crash that seriously injured his friend and a pending bitter divorce between the show’s patriarch Hulk Hogan and his wife Linda Hogan.
Now, as the fate of Hogan Knows Best hangs in the balance, Brooke Hogan has dropped another bombshell, confirming that her 48- year old mother Linda is dating a much younger man, 19-year old Charlie Hill.
"Yes, it’s true," Brooke tells Michael Yo on his Yo on E! satellite radio show on Tuesday. "I’m totally freaked out. This is really weird. I personally don’t like it at all or condone it."
Adding fuel to the fire–Linda’s new man happens to be a former classmate of her daughter’s.
"I went to school with him," Hogan tells Yo. "He was a grade under me. Me and Nick know him well. Me and Nick are two years apart, and he was right between us in school."
It’s a tricky situation for anyone, but Brooke says she’s managed to keep a clear head through it all. "She’s my mom, so I have to show her support," she says. "I’m just staying the course and dealing with it and supporting my family.
Of her brother Nick’s reckless driving charges (for which he’s imprisoned for the next 8 months) Brooke says she visits him regularly, adding, "You know, I thought we were one of those normal Hollywood families. It’s crazy watching it all fall apart, but I hope for the best."
