Hogan Know Best

February 28, 2008

According to a tabloid report, Hulk Hogan, who is divorcing Linda Bollea after nearly twenty-five years of marriage, cheated on his wife with a female friend of his teen daughter Brooke.

Thirty-three year old Christiane Plante, who worked with nineteen year old Brooke on her 2006 LP, has confessed to her affair with the fifty-four year old dad of her friend in a snitching report with The National Enquirer.

Christine claims the affair took place in 2007 while the family was shooting their VH1 reality show Hogan Knows Best:

“My relationship with Terry began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending. She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed. Terry is a good man, good father and a good friend, and he and I grew close at a time when he was going through a very difficult period. It seemed right then, but I know it was wrong. Having felt the guilt and pain build up, I gave a note to Brooke apologizing for my actions. I will never be able to fully forgive myself for this. I have lost an amazing friend.”

Superstar Lookback: Rowdy Roddy Piper

January 31, 2008

Roderick George Toombs is better known as a 54 year old, semi-retired wrestler, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. His achievement in the company was undeniable and amazing. Many youngster would not have much impression on him, other than the fact that he made a recent appearance on the 21st Royal Rumble.

When Roderick was young, he was the boy who never hit school. He had several heat with his family, especially his father then. Angered, he left home and join boxing and wrestling. Then, he was only 16 years old.

His career took flight in WWE in the mid 80s where he had many feud with Hogan, Snuka, and Andre The Giant. Vince was particularly fond of him, because of his amazing talking skills that made the first ever interview segment, The Piper’s Pit so successful.

His close ties with Vince make it hard for people to believe that they were at odds with each other in the late 90s. Piper departed to WCW, then rival of WWE because he felt he was underused. On the otherhand, Vince felt that it was time for Piper to help path the way for youngster. It was only till 3 years after WCW closure than they decided to let bygone be bygone.

Famous corporation such as MTV, and other reputable figure also tried to poach Roderick over. But he only made few appearances there. Even till today, Roderick is on the hot list. His filmography is long list, given that he is a wrestler. He was involved in 35 hollywood production, with Bloodstained Memoirs (2008) as his upcoming work.

Roderick also ventured into the realm of voice acting, appearing on Cartoon Network’s animated series Robot Chicken, as well as providing the voice of The Pyro Messiah in the Night Traveler multimedia adventure series produced by Lunar Moth Entertainment.

He and his wife, Kitty live in Hillsboro, Oregon, and have four children; daughters Anastacia, Ariel Tiel, and Fallon Danica and son Colton. Anastacia has a child, making Piper a grandfather. He is one role model that live life to the fullest, despite having no paper qualification. As quoted by him “”Just when you think you know the answers, I change the questions” Life is like that.
