A&E network is feasting on the Wahlberg brothers, who will star in a new reality show titled, “Wahlburgers,” and set in the family’s Boston restaurant.

For the show, actor brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg head back to their hometown to join forces with older brother Paul in the hamburger venture.

A&E says all eyes will be on these Wahlbergs, who are determined to make their restaurant brand a success in Boston and beyond. Now they just have to agree on a second location.

“Wahlburgers” is set to premiere Jan. 22.

Actor testifies

Alec Baldwin says he never had a sexual or romantic relationship with a Canadian actress accused of stalking him.

Baldwin testified Tuesday at the New York City trial of the woman, Genevieve Sabourin.

Baldwin says he had a meal with Sabourin at a friend’s request. He says he gave her an email address and phone number and later communicated with her about acting classes.

She says they had a 2010 tryst.

Bush to visit Leno

George W. Bush is headed back to Jay Leno’s show next week.

NBC tells the Associated Press that the former Republican president will discuss his post-White House life with Leno on the “Tonight Show” on Nov. 19.

Since leaving the White House in 2009, Bush has intentionally avoided the Washington political scrum and rarely gives lengthy interviews.

He told ABC this year he wants to “stay out of the limelight.”

It will be the fourth time Bush has been a guest on Leno’s couch. His first appearance was in March 2000.

The hip-hop star’s real name is Earl Simmons, whose biggest debt is $1.3 million in child support owed to some of the 10 children he has fathered.
