Oh may gawd, Tawmmy did ya he-uh dat? Dawnie and Maaaahhk Wahlberg are stahhrin’ in a new reality show ohn A&E. Okay, now that my horrendous Baaaaaahston impersonation, made with love, is out of the way, let’s get on with the news. Donnie Wahlberg officially announced a new reality TV show starring the Wahlberg clan and their Hingham, Massachusetts restaurant Wahlburgers (also the title of the show), is set to debut on A&E on January 22. That’s right, Mark, Donnie, and burgers. I know you’re thinking it too, it’s okay, we can all say it together: BEEFY.
The series goes behind-the-scenes into the restaurant whose Executive Chef is Paul, the proclaimed “most talented sibling” of the Wahlbergs. The show also has plenty of more MEAT (I’m so, so sorry) with a look into the Hollywood family and their Boston roots. So grab ya Mah and ya sistahhhs (sorry, I said I was done) and tune in for what will hopefully be one JUICY (I am the worst) show.
Wahlburgers also promises plenty of special guests in the restaurant including Alma, the matriarch of the Wahlberg clan, the REAL Johnny “Drama,” and the Wahlbergs’ original entourage, Henry "Nacho" Laun and Billy Leonard. Though, I’m sure there will be many more special guests popping into the restaurant.
Here’s a list of the guest stars we hope will appear on Wahlburgers:
New Kids on the Block
Donnie LOVES touring with NKOTB, and after a few long months on the road, the guys will surely need a place to re-fuel. We know it's not safe, but do you think there's ANY chance there will be a segment featuring NKOTB grilling while shirtless?
The View co-host has been seeing Donnie Wahlberg for some time now and we bet she can hang tough with all the Boston boys.
Sean Combs and Mark Wahlberg are entrepreneurial besties with plenty of pet projects and endorsements in their roster, including... water. I guarantee there will be at least one item on the menu at Wahlburgers that's named after Diddy.
M. Night Shyamalan
M. Night and Mark must need SOMEWHERE to discuss their upcoming film together. HERE'S THE CRAZY TWIST: The "special sauce'" is Thousand Island dressing.
The Backsteet Boys
The NKOTBSB Tour was a glorious, glorious summer for us all. BSB made it quite clear that NKOTB paved the way for their boyband stardom. There's only one way to pay them back: appear on Wahlburgers and drive tens of thousands of 30-year-old women to watch.
The 'Blue Bloods' Cast
There's just something about Tom Selleck that says, "I would like an order of fries with that, please." We'd also like to see the Boston vs. New York debate go all out with Bridget Moynahan and Selleck vs. Mark and Donnie.
It was a delight to see Mark Wahlberg take a comedic turn alongside Will Ferrell in the buddy cop comedy The Other Guys. Here's hoping the former co-star will stop by the restaurant and show the guys who's boss with his intimidating kids.
How delightfully awkward would it be for Andy to actually have to "Say hello to your mother" to Mark, Donnie, and Paul's actual mother. Revenge is sweet.
