Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are still going strong. The former Playboy Playmate and her New Kids on the Block fiance are all set to get married this weekend. On Saturday, TMZ reports that the notoriously close Wahlberg family will not all be in attendance as Mark Wahlberg and his wife have opted to skip the ceremony.
McCarthy and Wahlberg got engaged in April. They plan to wed in New York today and according to Jenny, they will have about 80 guests in attendance. Most notably absent will be Donnie's younger brother Mark Wahlberg who opted to skip out on the festivities. Mark has been filming "Ted 2" in Boston but rather than head on up to New York for his brother's big day, he will be in Los Angeles celebrating his daughter's birthday.
Many of Donnie Wahlberg's family are skipping out on the McCarthy-Wahlberg wedding. Multiple sources have reported that Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea will be skipping the ceremony because they don't care for Jenny McCarthy. Donnie's mom is said to be missing the big day too. Her excuse is that she is afraid to fly. How long is the drive from Boston to New York?
Jenny McCarthy talked about her wedding plans back in July with Howard Stern. She says their children will be a huge part of their wedding plans and that no celebrities will be there except Sherri Shepherd. McCarthy also told Howard Stern that Mark Wahlberg will be at the wedding and that he approves of the Donnie's choice in Jenny McCarthy. Apparently that is not the case or possibly something in the Stern interview upset the family. In any case, very few of Donnie Wahlberg's family will be in attendance.
