Exclusive Interview with Linda Hogan And Her Fiancé
INSIDE EDITION talks exclusively with Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda and her new man about their 29 year age difference and what life was like with the wrestling star.
Linda Hogan and her much younger man Charlie Hill just can't keep their hands off each other.
The 51-year-old ex-wife of Hulk Hogan and her 22-year-old controversial love playfully danced in their kitchen and exchanged romantic kisses on their balcony.
Now the couple reveals only to INSIDE EDITION that they're getting married.
Moret asked Hill, "How did you ask Linda to marry you?"
Hill said, "I just rolled over in bed and I said 'I love you. I love you so much' and she said 'I love you too' and and I'm like, 'Will you marry me?' "
Hill, who's 29 years younger than Linda, proposed in May. They invited us to their sprawling, luxurious home outside Los Angeles and gushed about being soulmates.
"I am so happy. There's no reason to look any further," said Linda.
But gaining their families' acceptance wasn't easy. Hill was especially scared to meet Hogan's reality TV star daughter, Brooke.
"I was scared to death. Oh man, I didn't know what to do. In fact I hid to be honest with you. I ran and hid," said Hill.
In addition to opening up about her new love, Hogan is also ready to talk publicly about her painful divorce.
In her new tell-all book Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes she says her ex-husband's cheating and drug use tore their marriage apart.
"When I realized that he had his first affair it crushed me," she said.
She says the world famous wrestler was unfaithful throughout their marriage, including an alleged affair with one of her daughter's friends. But Linda says it was his steroid and pain pill use that really ruined their lives.
Linda said, "Pretty soon you don't know what you are dealing with. There's just this medicated monster that you just have to guess like, ok, what kind of mood is he in now."
Moret asked, "Were you physically afraid that Hulk Hogan would hurt you?"
"Yes, I was," she said.
Hulk Hogan sais he never hit Linda.
After her marriage ended, Linda says she was so depressed, she actually considered taking her life.
"You actually got to the point where you wanted to end it all," said Moret.
As she cried, she explained, "I didn't really know what to do with myself. It was really a hard time."
She says a phone call from Hill literally helped save her life. Linda says her much younger love makes her feel like a new woman and she doesn't care what anyone thinks about their 29 year age gap.
Linda said, "It might shock people. People might say 'that's not really going to last.' People can think what they want but I couldn't ask for anything more."
