When Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg hooked up this summer, cynics dismissed the relationship as a summer fling.
But things seem to be getting serious for the celebrity couple – so much so that The View's newest co-host, 40, requested that her new beau be her very first guest on the show.
"He was booked to come on the show later to promote Blue Bloods, and I said, 'Can you just switch the date to be my first guest?' " she tells PEOPLE. "He makes me feel really comfortable and puts me at ease and he brings out the best in me. So I thought, 'Why not step out of your comfort zone, for me, and make me feel comfy on that day?' "

New couple Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg channeled some old Hollywood glamour during their first red carpet appearance together Saturday.
McCarthy, 40 – who was hosting a Dancing with the Stars charity event – rocked a plunging black dress and her hair styled in loose waves, while Wahlberg, 44, sported a black tux and red boutonnière.
The coordinated couple cozied up to one another as they walked the red carpet at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Ill.

The New Kids on the Block are back!
The band plans to bring some heat this summer when they hit the road for a brand new headlining tour – and they're bringing along a few famous friends: 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men will open all shows on the jaunt, which kicks off May 31 in Uncasville, Conn.
"It just seems like we are getting better and better," Joey McIntyre, 40, tells PEOPLE. "We're excited to get out there, rock out and have fun."
Along with the announcement of their tour, the multi-platinum selling group will release 10 – their first new album in over four years – on April 2.

The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block ended 2010 on a high note with a rollicking New Year's Eve mashup of their greatest hits in Times Square. But the guys still see room for improvement in 2011.
"I want to act more like an adult," New Kid Joey McIntyre, 38, who will welcome his third child in May, told PEOPLE about his New Year's resolutions.
"Being in a rock 'n' roll and pop world, it's very easy to act like a kid. So, my resolution is to really act like an adult. It's a personal inventory that I'm trying to take."

Boy band fans got a tuneful surprise Saturday night at New York's Radio City Music Hall when the Backstreet Boys made a surprise appearance at the New Kids on the Block concert.
"You get two for the price of one tonight," Nick Carter told the screaming crowd.
The New Kids on the Block – Joey McIntyre, 37, Donnie Wahlberg, 40, Danny Wood, 41, and brothers Jordan, 40, and Jonathan Knight, 41 – were sitting in front of a white curtain bantering when they launched into the Backstreet Boys's 1999 hit "I Want It That Way," an hour into the concert.

There's going to be another new kid on the block: Joey McIntyre tells PEOPLE that his wife Barrett is expecting their second child – a boy – in December.
"I still can't get over it," says the singer, 36, who also has 20-month-old son Griffin. "We feel so blessed."
So far baby no. 2 has already managed to throw his parents for a loop. "My wife actually took the [pregnancy] test but she thought it was negative," says McIntyre. "She came out and gave me this look like, 'No.' Then she showed me the test and I said 'It's positive! What the hell?'"

When the New Kids on the Block boarded a ship for the Bahamas on Friday, they were joined by 2,000 excited fans for a three-night cruise. "I don't know what we were thinking," jokes Donnie Wahlberg. "We have nowhere to run if it gets out of hand."
Sitting on the Promenade Deck before the ship departed from Miami, all five New Kids – Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood and Donnie – shared their aquatic rules with PEOPLE.
Manscaping Is a Must
There's nothing wrong with a bit of personal grooming. While four of the New Kids said they prefer to be natural, Danny Wood admits to a bit of shaving and tweezing. "Yeah, I manscape," he says. "You've got to look good in a swimsuit. I live down here and I'm always at the beach, so it's kind of a must for me."
