We generally stay away from reality shows, but if they involve a current or former boyband member, you can bet we will be tuning in (shoutout to “House of Carters!”). So naturally we were thrilled to see that one of our favorite members of New Kids on the Block, Donnie Wahlberg, is part of a new show on A&E this January. The show is called “The Wahlburgers,” and it revolves around the Walberg clan’s hamburger restaurant they opened in (where else) Boston, MA.
The show stars Donnie, brother Mark (how nice of Marky Mark to take time from his busy pants dropping schedule to film this show!), and brother Paul, the restaurant’s executive chef. According to the press release, the show will focus on the struggles of running a restaurant with the family name. We hope co-owner Donnie will be making lots of appearances, as he’s become one of our all time favorite boybanders (if you’ve ever been to a NKOTB show, you will know why). We’re hoping Aaron Carter, who was apparently jumped in Boston earlier this year for “being on NKOTB turf,” will stop by for a bite to eat.
The show premieres on A&E January 22nd at 10:30pm. Check out the promo below!
