While that’s happening, Hogan’s ex-wife, Linda came forward to let the world know how he let her down, and blamed him for ending their 25-year marriage in 2009.

"I was honest, I was a good wife," Linda told Inside Edition.

"I never cheated on him."

The split had a profound affect on the couple’s two children, Brooke, 27 and Nick, 25.  Nick was involved in a car crash that left his friend critically injured.

"My kids to this day are still reeling, and they can’t get their feet back on planet earth," Linda continued. 

"I can’t get my life back on track either. I don’t know, what am I supposed to do? Start over now I’m 57? I don’t know where I fit in in this world any more.

Read Linda’s letter below:


YOU have single handedly ruined our 25-year marriage and our family … my trust, my love, my future, our future family with grandchildren, holidays, weddings, our kids’ lives, homes, their ability to trust, our poor animals, friends, neighbors, your career, finances, trademarks, retirement, your legacy, your reputation, your health … even your soul …

You lost it ALL. You took me for granted and never appreciated me or our beautiful family … blaming me for your horrendous mistakes.

And yet you continue in life this very way, still .. Hiding behind those sunglasses, false smile , oh … and the bandana! Until you can really apologize, to me … And to our children …

I will never ever forgive you.
