[...] they still are - with the cameras rolling on A&E's The Wahlburgers premiering Wed. Jan 22, 10:30/9:30c, which serves up a candid look into the family burger restaurant, lead by older brother, chef Paul. Why do a reality show? The series really shows your hometown roots.

Other than your mom, Alma, the breakout star is your brother Paul, who's the head chef at Wahlburgers. The undercurrent in every episode is that Paul is fighting to continue to put love into everything that he does as a chef. Mark's role with the restaurant is probably worldwide domination.

Jenny McCarthy Thought Donnie Wahlberg Was Gay
The Superficial - over 3 years
When Jenny McCarthy first met Donnie Wahlberg, she gave him her phone number which he didn’t call right away to have sex with her, so clearly he’s a faggot, thought the greatest medical mind of our generation. E! News reports: The couple first met in March on the set of McCarthy’s Vh1 talk show. “I went a year without dating anybody,” the buxom blonde recalled. “So I don’t know if I was really randy or really ready, but he was there and I gave him my phone number.” She added, “I’ve never given a guy my number, but I was interested.” McCarthy, 40, was dumbfounded when she didn’t immediately hear from Wahlberg. “‘It took two weeks for him to call me back, and I thought for sure he was playing for a different team, if you know what I’m saying,” she said. “That’s of course my ego, a girl’s ego: ‘He must be married, he’s gay, what’s wrong?’” Ironically, Donnie Wahlberg actually was gay until Jenny McCarthy slapped him in the face with her breasts and the resulting autism scrambled hi ...

The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
Empty your mouth—vomit's on its way! by Ann Romano MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 Get some eye wash ready—because what follows is a headline that could blind you for life: "Kris Jenner Has a Sex Tape." Yeeeeaughhh! Our eyes! OUR EYES! (Splash, splash.) Unfortunately, it's true: In a teaser for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians—which only a true, self-loathing masochist would ever watch—the mom of fame troll Kim Kardashian admits in front of her entire family "[Hubby Bruce Jenner] and I made a sex tape." Now why on earth would any sane person admit something like this in front of cameras? It could have something to do with (a) her daily talk show getting canceled due to absolutely abysmal ratings and the fact that everyone hates her guts, and (b) her daughter Kim found her fame by making a sex tape, and so sad mama Kris is trying to get similar attention. This concludes the most depressing paragraph we have ever written. We ...
