The bitter breakup between Hulk Hogan (otherwise known by his real name, Terry Bollea) and soon-to-be ex-wife Linda may be the result of the wrestler’s cheating ways. In an interview with the National Enquirer, Christiane Plante, best friend to Hulk’s daughter, Brooke, confessed to being the other woman.
“My relationship with Terry began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending,” Christiane told the tabloid. “She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed.”
The actual status of Terry and Linda’s relationship at the time is up for debate. Hulk claimed he was “shocked” to learn of his wife’s plan to divorce him when papers were eventually filed in November of last year.
As for Christiane’s friendship with Brooke, that relationship may be over as well. “Having felt the guilt and pain build up, I gave a note to Brooke apologizing for my actions,” Christiane said. “I will never be able to fully forgive myself for this. I have lost an amazing friend.”
In a message posted to her MySpace blog a week ago, Brooke stated, “I’m going through one of the hardest issues I’ve ever had to deal with in my life … please keep me and my family in your prayers.”

Girlfriend wants Orlando to clean up his act
Orlando Bloom’s in hot water with his girlfriend, Miranda Kerr, due to his reluctance to, well, get in hot water. Star magazine reports the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star stands accused of odors unbefitting a leading man.
“Miranda thinks Orlando is too smelly,” a friend of the couple revealed to Star. “Recently, she asked him if he could wash his clothes and perhaps shower more often. … (Orlando) goes days without washing his clothes. He’ll wear the same jeans for a week before he throws them in the washer. Same goes for his sweaters, T-shirts and socks.”
According to the pal, Orlando tried to put his stinky ways behind him for the Victoria’s Secret model, but it may be too little (hygiene), too late. “He doesn’t know if this relationship will last.”
Dish on the fly
A lost pup found fast friends in Miley Cyrus and her dad, Billy Ray, Wednesday. E! Online reports the “Hannah Montana” stars found the pooch on the loose near their home and amped their “aw” factor by staying with the little guy until his owner returned. … She loves Jim Carrey, but that doesn’t mean Jenny McCarthy wants to marry him. “We’re living together, we don’t want any more children and we’re very happy — all that’s going to be is a piece of paper, really,” the actress told In Touch. “What is it a guarantee of? I’ll be yours forever? I’ll be faithful? Bull!” Despite her negative take on nuptials, Jenny added, “(Jim) is the light of my life and we’re more in love now than we have been in our entire relationship.”
