LOS ANGELES –
Brooke Hogan ‘The Victim’ in Hulk’s Alleged Adultery With Her Best Friend?
When your best friend and your father allegedly have an affair, isn’t it normal to feel, well, a little upset?
Reality TV starlet Brooke Hogan is suffering amid recent allegations that her famous father Hulk Hogan had an affair with her best friend, 33-year-old Christiane Plante, triggering the breakdown of his 24-year marriage to wife Linda.
Plante told The National Enquirer last week that she “grew close” to the world-champion wrestler and their romantic relationship started at a time when he and his ex-wife “privately knew their marriage was ending.” However, 19-year-old Brooke has publicly lashed out at her former best friend, via MySpace (the post has since been taken down).
“I think she shoulda thought about what kinda press she was gonna get when she slept with her best friend’s famous father … I think we’re all seeing just exactly how karma works Christiane. Nothing you say will ever put my family back together,” Brooke wrote on her blog.
According to Patrick Wanis, the celebrity life coach and human behavior expert who coached the family on their show “Hogan Knows Best,” Brooke is the unfortunate victim who has to now deal with losing the faith she once had in her father and best friend.
“Brooke is a sweet, sensitive and vulnerable girl. Loyalty to her is paramount. She isn’t the sort of girl who opens up or trusts easily, but once she does she usually creates a lifelong bond with friends,” said Wanis. “For Brooke to be betrayed by someone (Christiane) with whom she worked and considered a friend — maybe best friend — is truly devastating.”
So why is Brooke lashing out at the woman rather than her father?
“Brooke is someone who looks up to her father, and based on my experience with other clients, she will most likely subconsciously feel that dad has let her down,” said Wanis. “But she may not want to admit to herself because it would crush her image of dad and thus she may choose to shift or project the anger toward the mistress.”
Another inside source, however, has told Tarts that Brooke is “coming to terms” with the alleged affair.
“Naturally, Brooke was very upset and she used her blog to express that,” said the pal. “But she realizes now that this is a personal issue and probably needs to be dealt with in a more personal way. She’s a strong girl; she is coming to terms with it all and coping with this as best she can.”
A rep for Hulk Hogan had “no comment.” https://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,337334,00.html
