No one cared about their dating relationship or their engagement, so now Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are resorting to more drastic measures to get our attention: they’re claiming they might elope so as to guarantee a “small” wedding and less attention from the press. I see what you did there, guys! Reverse psychology!
From US Weekly:
“I’d like a small wedding,” Wahlberg told Us. “A perfect wedding for me would be Jenny, myself, and our three boys.” (This will be the second marriage for both stars. McCarthy, 41, was previously married to director John Mallory Asher, with whom she shares son Evan. Wahlberg, 44, shares two sons, Xavier and Elijah, with first wife Kim Fey.)
So does that mean they might elope? McCarthy simply smiled at her fiance and quipped, “We haven’t decided yet.” Laughing, the View co-host told Us that since getting engaged to Wahlberg last month, her wedding plans have gone back-and-forth.
“It depends on the day,” she said. If the two plan to have a formal ceremony, it will take place before 150 guests, including 6 or 7 groomsmen and bridesmaids on each side. “All of my bridesmaids are going to wear Pandora jewelry!” McCarthy dished.
“It would be this year or next year,” she added. “We like the idea of getting away on a vacation, but we also like the idea of keeping it local,” citing Boston (Wahlberg’s hometown) and Chicago (where McCarthy was raised) as potential options. Or, McCarthy joked, “find something in the middle, and force everyone to get there.”
“As long as she’s there, I’m there,” Wahlberg said.
Well, ain’t that sweet?
