In other news: Prince Charles letters will remain private; Hulk Hogan sues friend over sex tape

Prince Charles’s letters to the government will remain private, England’s top legal officer ruled Tuesday. The outspoken next-in-line (don’t even get him started on modern architecture or organic food) apparently has a habit of giving officials a piece of his mind; journalists seeking a peek at the correspondence got an okay from the courts last month. But Attorney General Dominic Grieve overruled it, reports AP. Why? Because, he said, the prince was acting as a king-in-training, not a lobbyist — and his “particularly frank” letters might have “undermined his position of political neutrality.” Wait, now we actually want to read them!

Hulk Hogan filed suit Monday in Florida against his former best friend and the man’s ex-wife over the release of a sex tape involving the ex-wrestler and the woman. Hogan says he didn’t know he was being taped that night at the home of his DJ pal, Bubba the Love Sponge Clem (real name!); he’s also suing the Web site Gawker for posting the tape. A lawyer for Clem denied that his client released the tape, telling AP “my hope is that these two can preserve their friendship.” Good luck with that: On Tuesday, Clem went on the air and called Hogan a “hypocritical fraud.”
