Hogan Family Blasted For Lack Of Remorse

LATEST: Wrestling star Hulk Hogan and his family have been chastised by the parents of the teenager left critically injured by their son NICK's 2007 car crash.
Nick Bollea, 17, is currently serving an eight-month prison sentence at Florida's Pinellas County Jail, after pleading no contest to felony reckless driving following a horrific car crash in Clearwater, Florida - which has left his friend John Graziano brain damaged.
But Graziano's parents Ed and Debra are furious at the teenager's lack of remorse, after hearing Nick discuss plans to win an early release from jail in taped telephone conversations that were leaked online at the weekend (23-25May08).
On the tapes, obtained by website TMZ.com, Bollea can be heard telling his dad that he wants to turn up for a court hearing "in my jumpsuit, for the sympathetic factor".
A statement released by the Grazianos via their lawyers reads: "These tapes clearly show what the Bolleas said in court was calculated to give the Court the impression that Nick deserved a break. It was a true Academy Award performance. They (the Bollea family) spoke of their love for John and they expressed how sorry they were, but their true feelings have now been revealed in the tapes..."
The Grazianos also blast the Bolleas for trying to cash in on their grief - by turning Nick's prison stint into a money-spinning reality TV show.
They add: "Nick Bollea and Terry Bollea are already planning a new reality show. Cameras are set to film Nick Bollea as he is released from jail and while he serves his probation."
Ed Graziano goes on to say: "The reason he (Nick) was put in jail is to think about what he did to my son. (But) that's the last thought on his mind."

This story just does not have a happy ending for anyone! I feel for John and his family. I would never wish this on anyone. I do feel that there should be some accountability on Johns behalf for getting in the car with Bollea. Obviously, this was not the first time he rode with Bollea! He was a part of the family events and hung out with the Hulk family.On the other hand, Bollea needs to step down, show some remorse and regrets!! I am disappointed that he is making it all about him. The family has the media addiction and will always try to find a way to be in the lime light. That's the unfortunate part of Hollywood!I wish the best for everyone. I hope that the Bolleas have learned a valuable lesson and finally take some accountabilty and give an apology!Do the crime, serve the time!! That pertains to all walks of life!!

I think that Nick is upset by what has happened but, has been in the limelight all of his life. He is showing what he has always shown the public side not the emotional side. I will keep both families in my prayers and pray that this will all teach each family an important lesson. Both of the boys were in the wrong they both were in the car and I don't think that Nick forced the other boy to get in that car. We are focusing more on this because Nick's family is in the show business than we would if it was a regular citizen and I don't quite get that we are all created as equals so why do we hold hollywood show people than we do anyone else. I'm a fan of the Hogans and always will be but lets be real people if they were any ordinary family we wouldn't still be harping about the actions of 2 not 1 teenage boys! I'm not saying what they did was right but it was the choice of both boys not just Nick and I believe that the punishment that Nick got was fair now please people just drop it already!!

Hulk Hogan insinuates in a taped telephone conversation with his son that John, a Marine that served his country in Iraq, was a bad person and somehow God has done this as punishment. What kind of a monster would say such a thing? Yet Hogan is all boohoo because his kid has to serve eight months in jail while John is more than likely going to spend the rest of his life compromised. Hulk Hogan has been an American icon and idolized by wrestling fans and it is upsetting to find out what a horrible person Hulk and his son really are. I find the telephone conversations between Nick and both his parents appalling and would NEVER again waste my time watching them on wrestling, reality tv or any other media outlet. My prayers are with the Graziano family and I hope they get every penny the Hogans made on their UN-reality show.

What hypocrites! Nick's mom accuses the victim's family members of trying to get money, and then her husband and son are on tape plotting ways to make the most money from this tragedy. They will turn around and apologize and explain that their comments have been taken out of context when in REALITY, they are wrong and should be embarrassed. Who would believe ANYTHING that comes from their mouths. They are low-class people who have convinced themselves that they live by a different set of standards because they are special. The entire family is pathetic and I hope that the public shows them just how much we think of their phoniness and their manipulative ways by NOT TUNING IN!!

This is just ANOTHER example, of the Public having a totally different perception of famous people, from the ACTUAL people themselves. I myself, used to really respect Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea), for projecting a positive message to kids..(Mind Mommy & Daddy, eat your veggies, etc.) The truth is, you NEVER really know someone, untill you KNOW them! I will say this, I think Hogan and Crew have slit their own throats! Stick a fork in em! THEY'RE DONE!

To think Terry preching (take your vitamins and say your prays ) and now he's trying to make money on the hole thing at his son's exspence and the family of the boy that was injuried. What would he have done if it was nick injuried would he like the driver's family trying to make it look like he should be walking the streets rather then doing time. The law is the law it doesn't change for some phoney, fake bulls**t wrestler who made his money on lies and fake setup matches. Yes it was both kids who made the decision to get in the car and do it. But Nick is still at fault and should pay with time and loss of money. As for Hulk,I can not believe that kids would look up to a worthless peice of s**t like you with (My family and Iare better then anyone because i'm Hulk Hogan) P.S. Hulk if you don't like what I have to say you can find me easyly you peice of garbage.

I think the media is just blowing this whole thing up to get ratings, and its working. Any person in the world would be doing this same damn thing if they were in the Hogans shoes. This country revolves around money. If you can make a buck from a reality show from an incident like this, everyone out there in tv land would do it. Stop whining and being jealous of them. Get a job. Also, the young punk who was hurt in the car accident had a choice to be in that car, Nick didnt drag him in the seat. He got what he deserved. Get a life people!!! Hulkamania lives forever!!!

I think the family of the injured boy should sue for any of the profits that such an aborant showmight generate.I hope that kid gets the hell beatout of him while locked up, and if it was my kid thaqt he put in the hospital, I'd beat the hell out of him myself.It will be a good day for television if this family just faded away.
