As it turns out, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino isn't the only reality TV personality battling gay rumors this week.

In an appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show," Hulk Hogan has responded to accusations made by his ex-wife Linda that he had an affair with fellow wrestler Brutus Beefcake.

"It's tough because a lot of my friends in normal life, a lot of my friends in the entertainment business, and a lot of my friends in the wrestling business are gay," he told Williams. "Just to say something spiteful and hurtful, I don’t get it...if it was true and I was gay, I’d embrace it, and I’d tell you guys about it and I’d celebrate it."

In December, Hogan -- - aka Terrance Gene "Terry" Bollea -- filed a defamation lawsuit against Linda, who made the allegations in her memoir, "Wrestling The Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes." In addition to the gay affair charges, Hogan's ex-wife said he was prone to violent, threatening outbursts during their marriage.

At the time, Hogan's attorney Wil Florin told The St. Petersburg Times, "He's being accused of all sorts of vile conduct that he did not commit."
