Are you ready for the wicked awesome new A&E reality show starring the Wahlbergs? Sorry y'all! I tried to infuse some of my dad's Boston accent into this post and I have a feeling it was a wicked fail! Movie star Mark Wahlberg will be starring alongside his family and his real life entourage, including the inspiration for Johnny Drama! The upcoming Wahlburgers tracks the clan as they open a burger joint in their Boston neighborhood.
Of the show, brother Paul reveals to People, "Being in business with my brothers was never the plan," with matriarch Alma adding about her sons' adolescent neighborhood notariety, "It used to be 'Oh, God! Those Wahlberg kids.' Today it's 'Whoa, it's the Wahlbergs!'"
Mark shares, "Paul, he's the chef. He's the most talented one in the family. It always comes down to family and having each other's back."
The show premieres on January 22, 2014 at 10:30 ET on A&E!

Is Lamar Odom finally taking responsibility for his bad behavior in an attempt to get his life back on track? Will Khloe Kardashian Odom still be around if and when he does…or will she be too busy inspiring the young lads of One Direction 2.0? It's a lot to take in, I know!
Starting with Lamar, he's changed his plea from "not guilty" to "no contest" in his recent DUI offense. Radar Online is reporting that Lamar will have his license suspended automatically for a year for refusing further chemical testing after his arrest. A source tells the site, “Odom pled no contest to first offense DUI, and the refusal to take further testing after he was arrested was dismissed."
A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol shares, “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests. That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”
The bad news is that they appear to be back, but the good news is it doesn't sound like they will be procreating any time soon. Of whom am I speaking? Why Speidi, of course! On the heels of debuting an E! special, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt also admitted to blowing through millions of dollars at the height of their reality infamy. After Shock: Heidi and Spencer aired on Monday, and the couple spoke candidly about playing villains on the a myriad of reality shows, beginning with The Hills.
Us Weekly breaks down the hour-long insider look at the pair, noting that it's difficult to tell just how "real" the pair was on the E! show. Spencer shared with viewers, "I don't think we've ever gotten to be the real Heidi and Spencer on TV," adding that the show was all about faking scenes and creating drama.
Poor Jacqueline, er, I mean Joyce Giraud certainly learned what it means to plan a girls' trip in the land of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Either someone ends up drunk in a suitcase or someone ends up wasted at the dinner table, but regardless, intoxication only fuels the drama and bad behavior with this group. Joyce especially took issue with Brandi Glanville's behavior (Who didn't? That comment about Joyce's inability to swim crossed so many lines, I'd be worried if she wasn't offended!). She didn't take too kindly to be shushed by Yolanda Foster either. At least Kyle Richards had her back. Good ol' Splits!
In her Bravo blog, Joyce breaks down the entire episode, but she doesn't shy away from calling out Brandi and YoFo. I hate to break it to her, but all the hair flipping and taking the high road isn't going to make it to far with this crowd. Kyle has already cornered the market on the hair, and none of these ladies seem to know the meaning of being the bigger person…unless by "big", you mean "fat." In that case, Joyce may be alright considering she's already got the name of a big ol' fat lady.
Updated below! Well, it's always nice to share some news of reality stars giving back to the community, and everyone seems to be in the charitable spirit this time of year. It's enough to make a Scrooge like me put away her Bah-Humbugs and finish decorating the tree!
Braxton Family Values stars–and sassy sisters–Traci, Towanda, and Trina Braxton are going to be on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with Cedric the Entertainer tonight and tomorrow night to raise awareness and money for the organization Saving Our Daughters, an anti-bullying campaign.
So last night's Love & Hip Hop was one giant mess, was it not? Peter Gunz keeps getting worse and worse, and the women in his life have got to be the best actresses on the planet because there is no way that they are that stupid. Throw in K. Michelle's attitude, and my head is reeling. You know it's bad when Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena are the sanest folks on the episode!
Saigon invites Erica Jean to the studio to apologize for screaming at her, throwing her pocketbook, lunging at her, calling her every name under the book, and accusing her of stunting their son's development. No biggie. He explains that his father was always so ugly to his mother and it made him hate his dad. He doesn't want his son to see him treating Erica in the same manner. Erica is thrilled that Saigon has seen the light, and he actually rationally and calmly inquires as to whether she'd be alright if they both took their son to see a speech therapist. He knows his son is fine (he's clearly been doing some more googling!), but it can't hurt to see a specialist. Just think of the drama they could have avoided had he done it that way the first time!
I feel like I need to pull out my Sweet Valley High slam book for the fiasco that was Sunday'sReal Housewives of Atlanta. Most likely to spend her life barefoot and pregnant? Oh, wait, she left the show for her own spin-off…Best looking? Let's ask the folks over at Miss America USA if pretty is as crazy does. As for biggest mouth, I think we can all agree that NeNe Leakes will own what she says–and twist it accordingly to serve her purpose.
This week the Neenster got into a war of words with Phaedra Parks and her special skills. While I'm sure she was known for her oral arguments in law school, NeNe insinuated that Phaedra had other oral accomplishments back in high school. Ladies, ladies, can't we all just get along?
Well color me shocked! Former Basketball Wives' star Evelyn Lozada is having a baby with a gazillionaire athlete. I never would have guessed! While the reality star is still remaining mum on the father of her unborn baby, pretty much every media outlet is reporting that the child's father is Carl Crawford of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
People claims that the reveal happened in an online interview. However, her rep is adamant that Evelyn did not verbally confirm Carl's paternity. Evelyn will, of course, talk all about how excited she is to be having another child.
