Donnie Wahlberg Fed Poutine To A Toronto Radio Producer And It Was Super Awkward

Hangin' not so tough.

Posted on

Donnie Wahlberg was in Toronto for the New Kids On The Block tour, and he of course stopped by his Wahlburgers restaurant in the city.

Think I need to grab a @WahlburgersCA burger before I leave Toronto! Just saying!

While there he met up with Dammitt Maurie from Kiss 92.5. Maurie wore a bike helmet with a camera attached to it, so the whole thing was strange from the start.

Maurie asked if women still throw their underwear at the stage during NKOTB concerts. "They're just as loud and boisterous but they don't throw stuff at us," Wahlberg said. "They're smarter with their money."

Then it gets down to the most imporotant part of the interview: poutine. Wahlburgers just added it to their menu.

"Have you tried it yet?" Wahlberg asks.

"No, I was hoping you'd feed it to me," Maurie said.



Wahlberg commented on how romantic it was to feed Maurie, which led to a conversation about same-sex marriage. The actor/singer had tweeted about the Supreme Court's decision when it became public last week.

I'm already happily married, and now I'm happy that my brother @jonathanrknight can get married in this country too!

Maurie made sure to remind Wahlberg that Canada has had same sex marriage for a decade.

"You do everything first, you're a more liberal society than us," Wahlberg said as he scooped up more poutine. "You had poutine first and same sex marriage first. America will catch up one day."

Finally: Never forget the apple.

25 years have passed since Step By Step took up residence as #1 on the Billboard Chart and stayed put for 3 weeks!
