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.

The notion of wrestling's blond behemoth Hulk Hogan caring for a couple of poor little rich kids has sweetly comic possibilities, but they're flattened out in the needlessly crass and lethally heavy-handed "Mr. Nanny" (citywide). Hogan, who is 6 foot, 6 inches and weighs in at 293 pounds, comes across as a genial giant with a sense of humor and a pleasing personality, but he's no actor. Luckily, he's surrounded by reliable pros like Austin Pendleton and Sherman Hemsley.
