Linda Hogan has suggested wrestlers Terry Gene Bollea, known as Hulk Hogan, and Edward Leslie, known as Brutus the Barber Beefcake, carried on “an intimate relationship.”

Linda divorced Hulk four years ago after nearly 24 years of marriage. Their family, which includes daughter Brooke and son Nick, was the focus of the reality series Hogan Knows Best and its spin-off Brooke Knows Best.

Linda went on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour to pitch her new memoir Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes.

One question emailed into the show asked: “Do you believe that Hulk and Brutus Beefcake ever had an intimate relationship?”

“Wow, let me think about how to answer this so I don't end up getting a lawsuit,” she said with a laugh. “A little bird told me, 'Yes, they think they did.'” (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Linda added that she was prepared to pose for Playboy magazine and denied she was a cougar for dating Charlie Hill, a man nearly 30 years her junior.
