Jenny McCarthy is dishing some details about her upcoming wedding to Donnie Wahlberg, and not so surprisingly, the chatty author and TV personality has already gone on record saying who definitely won’t be invited to the ceremony.
According to a report on Monday from Us Weekly, McCarthy told radio shock jock Howard Stern that she won’t be inviting a list of celebrities to her wedding, and that includes her former co-hosts on “The View.”
The onetime MTV star also revealed that he fiance’s famous brother (that’d be Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg) won’t be the best man at the wedding. Instead, the couple’s three children will take on key roles in the ceremony, which she described as a small event that will have about 80 guests and no other celebrities.
Sherri Shepherd will be the only one [celebrity invited] possibly if she can make it," McCarthy said, adding that the nuptials will take place in “the next couple months,” before her son, Evan, goes back to school.
McCarthy was previously married to John Mallory Asher (the adopted son of the late I Love Lucy and Bewitched show runner John Asher) from 1999 to 2005, and was linked with actor Jim Carrey for five years after that. But it’s Wahlberg whom she has described as the love of her life.
As for her second walk down the aisle, McCarthy told People that she’s a far cry from an obsessed bride. She has picked a color scheme for her upcoming ceremony (black and white) as well as a top secret venue, but she’s definitely not planning a black tie affair a la Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who spared no expense for their lavish ceremony back in May.
"I'm so not [a bridezilla],” McCarthy said, “I feel like I'm a dude. I just want to show up. I have Lee Press-On Nails. I'm not that kind of girl. I don't care, as long as the heart is in the ceremony, that's all that matters to me. I could get married in a Kentucky Fried Chicken."
The bride-to-be also revealed that she was more concerned with keeping the invite list small, considering the venue she has picked is “very boutique.” Citing Wahlberg’s 800 relatives (she’s not kidding!) and her own extended brood, McCarthy said cutting the list down to a core group of 80 people has been difficult.
So, suffice it to say, Barbara Walters’s invitation is probably not in the mail.
