The Wahlberg brothers have been gracing posters and magazine covers and television screens for decades. Donnie started out as a singer in the hit band New Kids on the Block and Mark was known at one time as singer, dancer and model Marky Mark, though today he’s a more serious actor who probably wants to put the past behind him each time he sees one of his underwear ads. The Wahlberg brothers and their family are making their television comeback on August 13 as the second season of their reality show, Wahlburgers, returns to television on A&E.
The brothers and their family own a burger restaurant in Boston, where they all take turns working and serving burgers. This season you can expect to the brother’s mom, Alma, have a bit of a bigger role. This year she gets to be a local celebrity when she rides in a local parade, and she becomes a smart phone addict right in front of your very eyes.
There is a lot going on in the lives of the Wahlberg brothers at the moment, especially Donnie. He’s engaged to The View co-host Jenny McCarthy, who told reporters over the weekend that they’re due to exchange their vows any day now. McCarthy also made headlines recently when she decided to leave her position on The View after the season ends. While you probably won’t see the wedding on the show, you will get to see a bit of McCarthy as she heads overseas with her fiancé and his family as he performs an overseas tour with New Kids on the Block, however.
The new season is rumored to be humorous, entertaining and unapologetically Wahlberg when it returns in August. If you didn’t have the opportunity to catch the first season, you’ll catch up in no time when the new season airs.
