Brooke Hogan's new job sort of has her following in her father's footsteps, and she tells CNN that he wasn't thrilled about it at first.
Brooke, daughter of legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan, now manages the female division (a.k.a., "The Knockouts") of TNA's "Impact Wrestling" on Spike TV, she told CNN at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday.
"Secretly I always wanted to wrestle, even though I’m a total pansy," she said. "I cannot take a bump for the life of me, but I just saw the opportunity, and I was like 'why not,' you know, it’s temporary. I get to get in there and straighten a few things out, you know. I’m passionate about it, I’ve grown up in the business, and it’s fun."

The music industry is reeling from the death of Whitney Houston, particularly those who saw Houston this weekend in Los Angeles.
The legendary entertainer was in town for Grammy Awards events, and was spotted Thursday in the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton as Monica and Brandy rehearsed to perform at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy gala, which went on as planned Saturday evening.
A video of Houston performing with Kelly Price (which comes courtesy VGS&L/Steve Jones @iamstevejones) has been circulating on the Web, and is said to have been taken on Thursday at a pre-Grammys party.
