Stop us if you’ve heard this before: a reality TV show may be the cause of a divorce. Somewhere, Nick Lachey just rolled his eyes.

The latest casualty of this phenomenon may be Linda and Hulk Hogan. The couple has been wed for over 20 years, but sources say they’re “going through a very hard time and their marriage is under a lot of strain.”

The problems, shockingly, started several years ago when the family – including the couple’s kids, awful pop singer Brooke Hogan and amateur race-car driver Nick – started filming the VH1 show Hogan Knows Best.

One friend said: “They have different beliefs on how to raise kids. Brooke started her music career, and they started getting into fights.”

Maybe over whether or not their daughter to continue to follow the lead of Audrina Patridge.

Some of the well-documented battles on the show have been over how scantily clad Brooke should be.

Or how late she could stay out with boyfriends, or how frickin tall she’s getting.

Another source of tension has been that Hulk, 53, desperately wants to get back into the wrestling ring, while Linda somehow believes that WWE isn’t exactly the place for a man nearing social security age.

At one point, the friend said: “Linda got so fed up she quit the VH1 show. She just walked off. No one knows what started that fight but it was serious.”

While Linda is now back on set to film the show’s fourth season, this pair might be better served to talk to Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro. That union ended as soon as the cameras stopped rolling.
