As the nasty divorce
between Hulk Hogan and his estranged wife Linda slogs on in the courts, their daughter Brooke sees a silver lining.
"I don't think our family is falling apart or getting destroyed," the 20-year-old told Access Hollywood
. "I just think it's rearranging itself in the way God meant it to be – because it wasn't working how it was."
As for her 48-year-old mother publicly dating a 19-year-old (one of Brooke's former classmates), the aspiring singer admitted that it's "kind of disappointing."
"She was always my hero when I was growing up," Brooke said. "I feel like I have to be the mother now."
Her 54-year-old father – the former professional wrestler (whose real name is Terry Bollea) – is also dating someone much younger. But Brooke said the 34-year-old woman is actually "a great foundation for him."
The new dating drama caps a rough year for the Hogans. In addition to the split, 17-year-old Nick is serving eight months in jail
for a felony charge of reckless driving, stemming from an accident that seriously injured family friend John Graziano.
