Major shade is being thrown! Donnie’s most famous brother won’t be at his wedding this weekend, according to a new report, and it may be because Mark and his wife aren’t fans of the bride.
Mark Wahlberg, 43, is reportedly skipping brother Donnie Wahlberg, 45, and Jenny McCarthy‘s wedding this weekend. And that’s not all — brother Bobby Wahlberg and matriarch Alma Wahlberg also won’t be attending the Labor Day weekend nuptials. Is Jenny, 41, the reason?
Mark Wahlberg Skipping Donnie Wahlberg & Jenny McCarthy’s Wedding
Mark and his wife, Rhea Durham, aren’t fans of Jenny, TMZ reports. Mark is not as close to Donnie and Jenny as Jenny has made it seem, the site claims.
Rhea allegedly didn’t like an interview that Jenny gave with Howard Stern, where she talked about her relationship with the A-list actor.
So is this why most of the family is boycotting the wedding?
Well, Mark’s reps told TMZ that he wasn’t attending because he needs to be at a birthday party for his daughter, Ella, in Los Angeles on Aug. 30. Her 11th birthday is Sept. 2, but the actor will be filming in Boston that day.
However, TMZ sources are adamant that there’s bad blood with Jenny.
There’s no word on why Bobby won’t be attending, but Alma is skipping out because she doesn’t like to fly, the site claims.
On a positive note, Donnie’s brother, Paul Wahlberg, will be attending. (Good for him!)
Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg: A Romantic Proposal
Donnie and Jenny first met in March 2013 when he was a guest on her short-lived The Jenny McCarthy Show. They started dating soon thereafter.
Jenny announced the couple’s engagement when she showed off her yellow sapphire engagement ring to her View co-hosts in April 2014. “His proposal was so sweet,” she told Shape. “One afternoon, my son walked into the living room with a piece of paper that read, ‘Will.’ He ran out, then he came back with another piece that said, ‘You.’ Then he came back with another piece that read, ‘Marry.’ Then Donnie walked in wearing a T-shirt that said, ‘Me?’ ” Jenny explained. “He was carrying the ring, he got down on his knee in front of Evan, and … I said yes.”
We can definitely see why she chose to marry Donnie — he’s such a romantic!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Mark go to the wedding? Is he dissing Donnie and Jenny by not going? Tell us what you think!
