Reality TV star Brooke Hogan has put her foot in her mouth by saying women make bad politicians because they suffer from PMS.

The singer - the daughter of Linda Bollea and her ex-husband Hulk Hogan, real name Terry Bollea - has no desire to pursue a career in politics because she can't control her raging hormones or PMS (premenstrual syndrome).

Brooke also thinks it would have been "crazy" if Hillary Clinton - who lost out to Barack Obama in the race to be named the Democrat presidential nominee - had become the first ever female US President.

She said on her new reality TV show Brooke Knows Best: "You know what? I am actually not that much into voting. I think it's kind of crazy that a woman is running because I think that women deal with a lot of emotions and menopause and PMS and stuff.

"Like, I'm so moody all the time, I know I couldn't be able to run a country, because I would be crying one day and yelling at people the next day, you know?"

The 20-year-old star was left devastated when her brother Nick Hogan was jailed for charges of reckless driving, after he crashed his car while speeding leaving his friend and passenger in a vegetative state.

Although she has suffered a tough year dealing with Nick's imprisonment and the breakdown of her parents' marriage, she recently revealed she has no intention of suffering a public meltdown like other young stars.

She said: "I don't feel pressure. I do feel like if someone can see me slip up, you know, they would love it because it would complete the family craziness.

"I'm not naturally the type of person that likes to party and start trouble."
