It’s been three years since Hulk Hogan was caught using the n-word on tape, taking a TON of heat for it in the public eye, and now it appears he’s back in the good graces of some of the organizations that previously left him behind.

According to a new report out this afternoon on TMZ, Hogan (nee Terry Bollea) is back in the Hall of Fame over at the WWE, having been reinstated to it after three years of redemption following his reported, shameful past use of the n-word.

Brooke Hogan Talks Body Shaming & Impossible Beauty Standards: ‘Kids Are Literally Killing Themselves’

no title

When we talk about body shaming, we don’t often think of being tall and muscular as a vulnerability attacked by bullies.

But the sad truth is anything that doesn’t fit into the narrowest of beauty standards is derided by jerks — something of which Brooke Hogan is all too aware.

The reality star and daughter of Hulk Hogan tells People Now she has been body shamed her whole life for her inherited frame:

“Being Hulk Hogan’s daughter, you definitely don’t come out 110 lbs. and petite. It’s always been that I’m muscular, I’m 5’10”. I’ve gotten, ├óΓé¼╦£Her jaw could crush rocks,’ and ├óΓé¼╦£She’s so tall she looks like a tranny.'”

Ugh. Transphobia and body shaming in one — someone deserves an a-hole PLUS.

But getting through that is what inspired her on her new Amazon show, The Fashion Hero, which takes regular Joes off the street and lets them compete as models with top designers. She says: (more…)

Melania Trump Moving Forward With Defamation Lawsuit Over Prostitution Claims

Melania Trump

You may remember last August when Melania Trump announced she’s suing multiple media outlets for citing a story that claims her former modeling agency secretly doubled as a high-end escort service.

And now, CNN reports a judge ruled on Friday that our new FLOTUS may move forward with a $150 million libel lawsuit against Maryland blogger Webster Griffin Tarpley, who Melania claims posted false and defamatory statements about her past.

It isn’t clear whether Donald Trump‘s wife’s lawsuits against other sites who ran the story, like The Daily Mail, will proceed.

Dramaaa!

On Thursday, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton took to his site to SLAM his newly revealed nemesis, who is the tech billionaire Peter Thiel, for bankrolling lawsuits against the digital news operation. Oh snap!

As you may know, this beef all started when Thiel gave an interview to the New York Times and accused the media site of outing him as gay and causing pain to several of his dear friends. Obviously, Denton was not thrilled about this — especially since this bit of legal drama comes not long after Hulk Hogan‘s major victory over Gawker.

Florida Judge Upholds Hulk Hogan’s $140 Million Victory Against Gawker & Denies The Site’s Request For A New Trial!

Get the deets!

Hulk Hogan wins again!

On Wednesday, a judge upheld the wrestler’s legal victory against Gawker in that sex tape lawsuit. For those who may not remember, a jury ruled that the 62-year-old would receive $115 million from the gossip site, as well as another $25 million in punitive damages, for a grand total of $140 million.

The webpage’s founder, Nick Denton, had filed a motion to try and get the celeb’s winnings reduced, or just have the jury’s verdict thrown out altogether, and get a new trial ordered.

However, Florida Circuit Judge Pamela Campbell decided the TV personality’s winnings would not be touched, and shot down Gawker’s request for a new trial.

But the fight’s not over yet.

Now that the magistrate has officially settled how much the site owes Mr. Hogan, the case will move on to the appeal stage, since Nick is battling the celeb’s big victory.

No one works in the media to make friends!

Earlier this week, Hulk Hogan was awarded $115 million in his trial against Gawker Media, who the WWE star sued for posting a sex tape of him and his former best friend’s wife.

In addition to Hogan (born Terry Bollea)’s compensatory damages, the Florida jury added $25.1 million in punitive damages as they believed that the controversial site broke the law.

The jurors had strong words for the site’s founder Nick Denton, who they believed never showed any signs of remorse during the trial — and according to Denton, the jury was absolutely right!
