As noted earlier, Hulk Hogan appeared on The Howard Stern Show this morning and revealed that the woman in his recently leaked sex tape was Heather Clem, the wife of his best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge. Hogan said that Bubba gave him his blessing to have sex with his wife, and that the incident occurred six years ago while Hogan was still married to Linda Hogan. Hogan claims that Linda drove him to be unfaithful because she was so abusive.
TMZ reports that Bubba actually appears at the end of the video and tells his wife, "If we ever did want to retire, all we'd have to do is use this footage."
"I'm sick to my stomach right now," Hogan told TMZ upon learning about Bubba's involvement with the tape. Hogan told the site that Bubba had always denied having any involvement with the tape, and Hogan warned him that they "were never friends" if he was in any way involved.
Hogan told TMZ that he is exploring his legal options, and "promises someone WILL PAY for recording and releasing the tape."
