Brooke’s Early Years
Brooke Ellen Bolea also known as Brooke Hogan is an American actress, singer, and famous TV personality. She is the daughter of a professional wrestler. At one point, she became the on-screen personality for TNA, Impact Wrestling. She began her career with her first studio album in 2002. In order to grow her music career, Brooke and her father appeared in the one-hour special segment for VH1. It was a huge success as the rating was high and thus Hogan and his family were asked for the television series, Hogan knows best, between 2005 and 2007. The main idea behind the series was to record the struggling Brooke to record her debut album along with her overprotective father.
Brooke’s Career Switch
In 2006, her first studio album was released but prior to this, she entered the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The show was cancelled due to personal conflicts among the family members which resulted in a group appearing in her own TV series Brooke Knows Best, between 2008 and 2009. Her second album, The Redemption (2009), however, couldn't see the face of success. Due to this, after her show ended, Brooke pursued her career in acting appearing in numerous low-budget TV shows and films. In 2012 Brooke decided to appear with her father in total nonstop action wrestling. After ending her series, she appeared in the satirical film L.A. Slasher and worked on country music plays in 2015 and 2018.
Brooke’s Dating Choices
When Brooke's father, Hulk took some time off for his back surgery in early 2012, she and bully Ray started their secret on-screen relationship. When her father returned to the show in November of 2012, he moved into a feud with the bully Ray without knowing he was having a relationship with her daughter. However, it was revealed soon enough when a few years later, bully Ray saved Brooke from getting kidnapped by Aces and Eight. At that moment, he proposed to break in front of Hogan which left the father speechless.
Hogan said, I’m looking at you, I’m looking through your eyes, I don’t believe you, you’re not for real and you are not the man for my daughter.
Despite her father's disapproval, Brooke decided to accept Ray’s proposal. Ray commented, I know our entire relationship has played out in front of the entire world. I don’t care, I want everybody to know how much I care for you, how much I love you and I want you to marry me. Not only do I want you to marry me, but I wanna do it right here next week in front of everybody.
Brooke later terminated her contract with WWE when a controversial audio of her father commenting on her dating choice got out. Hulk Hogan commented that his daughter’s ideal husband should be like him and would bring “Hulkamania” to anyone who marries his daughter.
