Hulk Hogan is front and center in the media these days in light of his $100 million lawsuit against Gawker for publishing his 2012 sex tape, in which he was seen having sex with the wife of his then-friend Bubba "the Love Sponge" Clem.

Ex-wife Linda says she will never forgive him. She also doesn't believe Hulk Hogan--whose real name is Terry Bolea--deserves any of the $100 million he is suing Gawker for.

"My kids to this day are still reeling, and they can't get their feet back on planet earth," she said in a recent interview with Inside Edition. "I can't get my life back on track either. I don't know, what am I supposed to do? Start over now that I'm 57? I don't know where I fit in in this world any more."

“I was honest, I was a good wife. I never cheated on him,” Linda added. She and Hulk Hogan filed for divorce in 2007 after both made allegations of physical abuse and affairs.

Linda wrote a powerfully emotional letter to Hulk Hogan, which she read recently during an episode of Inside Edition.

“YOU have single handedly ruined our 25-year marriage and our trust, my love, my future, our future family with grandchildren, holidays, weddings, our kids' lives, homes, their ability to trust, our poor animals, friends, neighbors, your career, finances, trademarks, retirement, your legacy, your reputation, your health...even your soul...You lost it ALL,” she read.

“You took me for granted and never appreciated me or our beautiful family...blaming me for your horrendous mistakes,” she concluded. “And yet you continue in life this very way, still. Hiding behind those sunglasses, false smile, oh...and the bandana! Until you can really apologize, to me...and to our children...I will never ever forgive you.”

Linda Hogan sounds like she means business. Do you think any of what she said will resonate with Hulk Hogan? Or is he simply too busy pointing fingers at Gawker to realize what his actions have cost him?
