The Linda Hoffman who is the new Mrs. Rydell, 55, is a cardiac sonographer who met him in October 2007, said the "other" Linda Hoffman, who's the president of his fan club. Linda Ferrino Hoffman, the fan club president (who's known as Linda #1), has been married for 38 years to Jake Hoffman and lives in Margate.
