Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are now official and it’s like Singled Out meets NKOTB meets the strings of my pre-pubescent heart! I must admit, if any ’90s icons were going to get it on in the millenium, I’d always hoped it would be Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold Part Deux. But this is just as randomly unexpected and fabulous!
While I’m admitting things, I feel I should confess that until today I was unaware Jenny McCarthy had a talk show on VH1. These days, I pretty much just know her from being insanely awkward during New Year’s Eve broadcasts and as the new Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View. But it was reading The Jenny McCarthy Show blog that caught me up on everything I needed to know to be qualified enough to write this post:
Now, I want to talk about what happened between Donnie Wahlberg and me. Let’s just say we visually give “50 Shades of Grey” a run for its money. It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED. If you were a New Kids On the Block fan back in the day, I totally get it. I think I have officially become a groupie.
I was an NKOTB fan back in the day and I can assure you, it wasn’t because my first grade life was lacking whips and chains, but to each their own. Oh, and in case you don’t have time to watch the clips from the show, I can also assure you that Jenny McCarthy’s face doesn’t turn 50 shades of red because Jenny McCarthy’s face can’t do anything anymore. It’s just eyes and lips moving while everything else remains completely frozen in place.
During a segment where Donnie talks dirty to Jenny, she lets us all know that it was good enough that it made her “make special sauce.” Best of luck to them. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be over here trying to figure out how I can get Carmen Electra and AJ McLean together with these two for a double date.
