Add homosexuals and his wife to the list: More revelations from Hulk Hogan's bigoted rant

They promised there was more to come, and The National Enquirer (via partner site Radar Online) is definitely milking their scoop on Hulk Hogan's career-killing pillow talk tape for all its worth.

Today's dose of small-mindedness covers homosexuals and his ex-wife Linda before circling back for another dose of the slur that started it all last Friday.

For those just catching up, all the comments come from a tape recorded during a bedroom session between the wrestling legend and the wife of his friend, radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge Clem. Bubba was aware of his wife's sexual relationship with Hogan, and is even present in parts of the tape before and Hulk and Heather Clem have intercourse.

Discussing an episode of VH1's Hogan Knows Best 'reality' show where he returned to the house he grew up in, currently lived in by a gay man, who offered him a toy truck that he found in the garden that he believed belonged to young Terry Bollea (Hulk's legal name).

According to Radar Online, that triggered this:

'VH1 wanted me to do a big thing and go back to the house I grew up in,' Hulk says, discussing the Season Four finale of his show.

'So we knock on the door,' he continues, 'and a big f*g lives there now!'

Undeterred, the 61-year-old continued with his disgusting homophobic bile. 'This half-gay was enamored with Linda,' he sniffs, of his ex-wife.

Today's other major revelation concerns Hogan talking about then-wife Linda, who he would divorce within a couple of years of this tape. Hulk asks Bubba to keep the mother of his children away from him should he become unable to do so himself,

Dude, the only thing I will ever ask of you ... I don't know how you will pull this off ... is, if I am ever on my death bed, you cannot let Linda come and visit me.

And discusses plans to keep their Las Vegas home from going to her in a settlement:

If I get divorced, Linda will make me sell it.

F**k it. Cecile will buy it and give it back to me after the divorce!

Radar Online alleges that "Cecile" is Cecile Barker, founder and CEO of SoBe Entertainment, and the man believed to be the "black billionaire" Hogan talks about in National Enquirer's first set of quotes.

Today's story also includes and instance of Bubba using the "n-word" when giving Hulk a gift of sunglasses.

The tabloid and its partner site are clearly stringing out these revelations in the way that profits them the most, journalistic ethics and common decency be damned. But you can't feel bad for Hogan when it continues to become more apparent how casual and thorough his bigotry was when the tape was recorded.

As always, please be respectful in the comments, and join us in hoping this is the last of the Enquirer's reveals.
