Might Mark Wahlberg bring his Wahlburgers to reality TV?
Might Mark Wahlberg join the ranks of Snooki, Camille Grammer and Tim Gunn?
Though that sounds like a cocktail party in "The Twilight Zone," the actor-producer, his two brothers and a lot of burgers could be headed to reality television.
There's been talk surrounding a potential show on the creation and opening of Wahlburgers, the high-end beef patty joint we told you about last week. Wahlberg is collaborating with his New Kids on the Block brother, Donnie, and the chef in the family, Paul, to open the space in Boston next year.
How might an unscripted series go down for Mark? Apparently, it'd be without his former Calvin Klein-modeling mug in front of the camera.
"Maybe I'll be the 'Charlie's Angels' of reality TV," he said. "You'll hear my voice. But obviously it's something that we'd want to control in every aspect and produce and make sure that we were doing something really quality."
We appreciate his perfectionism, but any Wahlburgers TV show had better come with some Marky Mark on the side, or we're sticking to "Top Chef."
