Linda Hogan, Mary Delgado hate their men



Tbdlindahogan Goodness gracious, The Juice* goes away for a couple days of carb overload and look what happens. First, Linda Hogan tells the Hulkster it's all over (or does she?), filing for a divorce last week in Pinellas County. From the St. Pete Times:

Pinellas County court records show that Linda Marie Bollea, 48, filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Terry Gene Bollea, 54, on Tuesday. She is represented by Largo attorney Elliot Jay Goldstein.

In an e-mail, Goldstein said: "As this is a very personal matter for the Bolleas and their children, Mrs. Bollea has understandably requested that no further comment be given."


Reached by phone on Friday night, Terry Bollea said he had no idea his wife had filed for divorce. When informed during the call that the paperwork was submitted on Tuesday, Bollea said politely, "Thank you for the great information," and hung up.

He called back about five minutes later.

"I'm kind of shocked," he said. "You caught me off-guard. My wife has been in California for about three weeks. ... Holy smokes. Wow, you just knocked the bottom out of me. ... I just pulled over to the side of the road for five minutes to find out what was going on here."

Asked whether he and his wife had discussed divorce, he said, "That's my private business."

Phone calls to Linda Bollea's cell phone went unanswered on Friday night.

And who says newspapers don't inform? We're just doing our jobs, folks.

Next, we find out that Mary Delgado, the former Bucs cheerleader who in 2004 was picked by The Bachelor Byron Velvick, punched the pro fisherman dead in the face during an argument and split his lip, according to Pinellas County sheriff's deputies. Also from

Tbdmarydelgado On Wednesday, just after midnight, Delgado was taken into custody on a battery charge and was under the influence of alcohol when she was arrested, according to an arrest report. The report does not name her fiance but says the pair have lived together "as a family" for the last three years.

The couple appeared together the day before in a special episode of The Bachelor called "After the Final Rose." During the show, Delgado told the audience she had taken up her fiance's sport of fishing, that the pair was doing a lot of traveling and they planned to get married in November.

Sources that watch that awful show (because The Juice* can only handle America's Next Top Model and A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila) say that just the night before, Byron and Mary were on The Bachelor discussing their wedding plans. Oh, those lovebirds!

And in case you were wondering, yes we're posting this on a Saturday evening, but we ate too much turkey and the family just left town, so this is all we have the energy to do.
