Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg’s marriage is NOT “falling apart,” despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct this story. We’re told it’s “untrue.”

According to OK!, Wahlberg wants McCarthy to be a housewife, and her supposedly immature behavior is beginning to bother him. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid that Wahlberg expects his wife to be “cooking and taking care of the family instead of relying on outside help. But she resists his alpha male act.” The alleged “insider” adds, “When she gets a tattoo or dyes her hair on a whim it drives Donnie crazy. He tells her to act like an adult.”

The tabloid’s dubious “source” next goes on to claim the couple is also fighting about how to raise their blended family of her one son and his two boys. “She won’t let him be a strong father figure… Their relationship is doomed. It’s just a matter of time before they split,” says the magazine’s ill-informed source.

Here’s what’s accurate about the tabloid’s story: The spelling of Wahlberg and McCarthy’s names. Here’s what’s inaccurate about the tabloid’s story: Everything else. A rep for McCarthy exclusively tells Gossip Cop that OK!’s report is “ridiculous and untrue.” And for further proof, simply watch Wahlberg and McCarthy’s new A&E reality show “Donnie Loves Jenny,” which centers around the couple’s strong marriage.
