Hulk Hogan is getting down to business - legal business - with regard to his recently leaked sex tape. Call it Hulk versus Bubba. The reality TV star and former pro wrestler has filed lawsuits against onetime best friend Bubba "The Love Sponge" Clem and Clem's ex-wife Heather as well as Gawker Media, his attorney said Monday afternoon at a press conference in Florida. Bubba and his ex-wife are accused of illicitly taping Hogan having sex with Heather six years ago, violating his expectation of privacy.

Aww. Hulk Hogan was so adorable on the "Today" show Tuesday, we kind of feel bad for watching that excerpt of his sex tape. 'Cause the dude's super bummed it was released. Bummed in a big, cuddly, former-wrestler-who's-gonna-tear-apart-whoever-did-it way. Turns out the tape, which surfaced in March and went public - at least a part of it - last week, was made six years ago at a time when Hogan said he was at a "very, very low point" in his life. He said he didn't know there was a camera in the room and that he's working with authorities to track down the person or people who made and released the tape.

Thank you, Hulk Hogan and Linda Hogan. It's not often we get a DUI arrest and a celebrity sex tape in the same post. First we have Linda, a.k.a. Linda Bollea, who was pulled over for speeding and then arrested on suspicion of DUI in the wee hours Thursday in Malibu. She was released shortly before 9 a.m. on $5,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department records. "She regrets it. She's a mom, so she's embarrassed about it," her lawyer Raymond Rafool told the New York Daily News . Linda's rep told TMZ that the 53-year-old been drinking bubbly on an empty stomach at a jewelry event, and it reacted with antibiotics she'd been taking, magnifying the effects of the alcohol.

Past the Strip, north up Las Vegas Boulevard amid a stretch of blocks populated by adult stores, tattoo parlors and the like sits the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. The store stands out on a recent weekend afternoon, because in front there is a rope line of tourists waiting to get inside. These are the fans of "Pawn Stars," a reality show on the History Channel centered on the store that has become a surprising hit and began filming its third season this month. "The show impacted our lives immediately.

Jeremy Shapiro's love of the game has led him to ditch a real estate career to open &Still, a clothing store that celebrates sports of all kinds. But don't expect your standard selection of team logo gear. The majority of &Still's tees, hats, jerseys and jackets date back to the 1990s and are unworn, with the tags still on them. A '92 Dream Team basketball T-shirt ($92) hangs near an L.A. Rams Starter jacket in satiny blue ($225). A 1987 Mike Tyson Atlantic City fight is memorialized on the front of a black satin hat ($100)
