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.

Robin Thicke isn't quite ready to give up on Paula Patton, if his recent actions are any indication.

So much for "Forever in Love," Kenny G. Twenty years after that tune came out - and also 20 years after Kenneth Bruce Gorelick and Balynda Benson-Gorelick said "I do" - the smooth-jazz man has filed for divorce.

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. Nick Lachey seems like such a nice guy. But he is also a die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan, so he might have built up a lot of frustration over the years. And he might be a bit sensitive about his former boy band. The ex-98 Degrees singer was thrown out of the Bengals-Chargers game in San Diego on Sunday after what was at the very least an altercation with another, unidentified fan. Lachey first reported the incident on Twitter: "Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder!
