Hulk Hogan is happy to have reconciled with his daughter, Brooke, after he had a brief fling with one of her close friends.

The former wrestler told People magazine his relationship with Brooke, 20, "was strained for a while" after Brooke learned that Hogan had a brief fling with her pal, a woman in her 30s.

"Brooke has gone through a range of emotions," he said. "She was a little confused about who everybody was and maybe had misinformation, but right now Brooke understands who I am, and who her mom is and what's real and not real. She's doing real well now."

He also said he still loves his wife, Linda, despite their ongoing divorce.

"I unconditionally love my wife, even though we're not together anymore," he said. "The Linda that I know was a great mother and a great person."

Revealing there had been problems in his marriage for a decade, Hogan, 54, said letting cameras into their home for their VH1 reality show, "Hogan Knows Best," may have been a mistake.

"I just think the reality show amplified the problems that were already there," he told People.

Linda, 48, filed for divorce last November.
