Brooke Bollea credited as Brooke Hogan, is the daughter of wrestler Hulk Hogan and older sister to Nick Hogan.

Brooke gained fame from her appearance on the reality television series “Hogan Knows Best,” which spotlights her family, and which premiered on July 10, 2005 on VH1 as well as MTV. She pursued a pop-music career with her parents acting as her managers. Brooke had developed her musical skills enough to land opening slots on tours for Hilary Duff and the Backstreet Boys, as well as singing gigs at a Radio Disney holiday event.

Brooke’s road to becoming a pop star (not to mention an actively dating teen overcoming an overprotective father) was concurrently documented alongside the Hogan family’s daily life. Soon enough, producer Scott Storch (Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, 50 Cent) approached her about recording a song of his, an opportunity that led to Brooke being the first artist signed to his label, Storch Music Company. Four months of work in Miami resulted in Brooke’s debut dance-pop album, Undiscovered, which included collaborations with Nelly Furtado, Beenie Man, and Cam’ron. The record’s first single, “About Us,” featured rapper Paul Wall and heated up airwaves upon its release in summer 2006, coinciding with the filming of the third season of “Hogan Knows Best.” The resulting hype helped pave the way for Undiscovered’s arrival in late October.

By mid-2008, having just turned 20 years old, Brooke parlayed her new independence into another reality TV series, “Brooke Knows Best,” which launched that summer. The show documented her life as a young, single, autonomous woman; moreover, it served as a means of stopgap entertainment while Brooke readied her second album, The Redemption. After issuing a mixtape, “Judgement Day,” as a free digital download, she returned her attention to The Redemption, which arrived in July 2009 and included cameos by Colby O’Donis and Flo Rida.

In 2012, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), the wrestling promotion where her father worked, announced that Brooke had signed on to work in the promotion as an on-screen authority figure and a backstage consultant to the TNA Knockouts. That same year she confirmed via her official Twitter account that she has continued to write and develop her third studio album.
