Entertainment Tonight: NKOTB's Jonathan Knight on His Dangerous River Proposal & Dream Wedding 'With Live Chickens!'

ET Online posted an article about Jonathan and Harley's engagement and how Jonathan wants his wedding day to go.

EXCLUSIVE: NKOTB's Jonathan Knight on His Dangerous River Proposal and Dream Wedding 'With Live Chickens!'

Fresh from his 21-day African adventure, Jonathan Knight has dished to ET about his upcoming wedding and the scary moment he knew he had to propose.

The New Kids on the Block singer had been checking out wedding rings for more than four years, but it was watching his longtime love, fitness trainer Harley Rodriguez, dangle over a death-defying waterfall that prompted the star to finally pop the question.

"We were walking around Victoria Falls, and there's this thing called Devil's Pools," says Knight, who was holidaying in Africa with Rodriguez, their mothers and friends. "It's ridiculous -- you walk to the edge of a waterfall and then it drops straight down and it just didn't make any sense to me, so I didn't do it, but Harley did. In the back of my mind I'm like, 'If he's hanging off a waterfall, I could frickin' lose him! It's time to do it.'"

Returning to their rustic lodge, Knight got ready with the classic gold bands he had been carrying around with him. However, the 43-year-old Rodriguez and their moms were exhausted, and decided to skip dinner and have an early night. Initially "freaking out," he halted his plan and instead popped the question the following day as the group dined on a raft in the middle of the Zambezi River. Once again, the deadly drop of Victoria Falls was nearby, along with dangerous wildlife.

"There were alligators and hippopotamuses and they had to have people watching out to make sure hippopotamuses didn't come right up to the raft," says Knight, 48. "We started eating dinner and our moms were like, 'Oh my goodness, this is the most memorable trip ever!' At the back of my mind, I was thinking, 'Just wait… it's about to get a whole lot more memorable!'"

"Then we were talking to our mothers, toasting cool life things that were coming up and I went, 'Well, I have another pretty cool life event coming up.' Harley looked at me and was like, 'What? What are you talking about?'"

"He totally didn't expect it. He was shocked. But it was an immediate 'Yes!'" says Knight, adding that despite knowing he wouldn't be turned down, he was full of nerves buying the ring and asking the question. "I guess I was pacing a lot and just acting different because afterward my mother was like, 'I knew this was going to happen tonight! You were acting really different and nervous!'"

Knight says it was extremely special to have their moms -- who had never met before the vacation -- present for the big moment, but confesses he was initially anxious about having their parents meet and get to know each other during a three-week overseas trip.

"I was nervous about that, but within 10 minutes of them meeting, it was special and so cute watching my mother and his mother walking around, talking, sharing their life experiences and beaming with joy. Our moms have never gotten to see Harley and I in our day-to-day routine, so 21 days of that was pretty cool for them. And how special is it to have your moms there when you ask for somebody's hand in marriage?"

Knight and Rodriguez met during NKOTB's 2008 reunion, while the singer was attending Rodriguez's classes at Barry's Bootcamp in between tour rehearsals. They have since competed together in the 26th season of The Amazing Race.

Two days before flying to Africa, Knight told some of his five siblings about his proposal plan -- "They're like, 'About time!'" His thrilled bandmates have since been telling him he's not allowed to elope, but with the group heading out on The Total Package Tour with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul next May, the couple have yet to set a date and the ceremony is unlikely to be a giant spectacle.

"I prefer small, intimate weddings where you can just be with family and friends, appreciate everybody who's there and not get lost in the whirlwind," he says. "I hear so many people talk about their weddings and say they don't remember half of it. It's such a special moment in your life that I think you should make it something you can look back on and remember every intimate detail of who was there and what was said."

"My dream wedding would be in a field with tables, candelabras and live chickens running underneath the tables," he adds. "Harley's mortified about that idea. He said the chickens are going to be pecking at all of the guests’ feet and freak people out!"

Although the couple have long considered themselves "common law married," Knight cried tears of joy upon hearing news of last year's Supreme Court ruling, which legalized gay marriage nationwide.

He's confident that Republican Donald Trump's recent presidential win won't affect that law, but admits he was "grateful" to have been abroad during the election.

"I am so worried about the future of our country. You look at the people that Donald Trump is appointing to his cabinet and so many of them are anti-LGBT. But there's also a part of me that believes the majority of America is behind gay rights, gay marriage and equality. We may have to go back a bit and fight a little more, but I don't think that's going to change."

Updates on The Joey Mac Project

Here are some more details on Joey's upcoming show "The Joey Mac Project" which will premiere in Spring 2017 on Pop.

From People:

Joey McIntyre on Filming New Show with His Kids: ‘It’s Been Fun, Exciting and Stressful’

On top of coaching soccer and selling out arenas, Joey McIntyre is producing his own show … that stars him, his wife and their children!

“It’s been fun to see my kids and how they respond and take direction,” McIntyre, 43, tells PEOPLE of Griffin, 8, Rhys, 6, and Kira, 5, his children with wife Barrett Williams.

“But, they’re moving on. When’s their next play date? It’s been fun, exciting, stressful at times trying to figure out whether it was right for the kids.”

The Joey Mac Project, which will premiere Spring 2017, is a scripted comedy series that stars McIntyre as himself in a journey to reignite his showbiz career that eventually lands him a gig as a talk show host at a cable network.

Between soccer games, ballet classes, school, play dates and filming, McIntyre and Williams are handling the whole parenting thing like pros.

“I think for us, as they get older, they have more schedules,” the New Kids on the Block singer reveals. “This fall was so different because everybody has their own taste and desires. It’s like, how are we going to get it in!? But you can’t be a slave to it, you’ve also got to do what’s right for the family and remember that you’ve got to keep it simple.”

Though the actor-singer loves his different relationships with each of his kids, his only daughter, Kira, has stolen his heart.

“All those cliché’s — ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’ — you hate to say it, but it’s just different,” he says. “When your daughter says, ‘You’re the best daddy’ or she comes in in the morning and she gives you a hug and it’s just me and her in bed before I have to go downstairs, it’s doesn’t get any better. That’s the gift of having a little girl — if you don’t totally mess it up, your daughter is going to think you’re the sun, the moon and the stars.”

The Joey Mac Project will premiere in Spring 2017 on Pop, also home to the nostalgia-inspired series Hollywood Darlings starring Jodie Sweetin, Beverley Mitchell and Christine Lakin.

From Deadline:

‘The Joey Mac Project’: Adam Ray, Punam Patel and More Round Out Cast

The Joey Mac Project stars McIntyre as himself in a hilarious quest to be taken seriously as a legit actor that eventually lands him a gig as a talk show host at a cable network called The Comfy Channel. As Joey starts to navigate the talk show circuit, he is joined by his often misguided manager and team. McIntyre’s real-life family members will also star in the show as themselves, including his wife Barrett and their three children, Griffin (eight years old), Rhys (six years old) and Kira (five years old).

Ray will play Alex, Joey’s longtime manager and confidant whose poor impulse control and short-term ideas have led to a successful codependent relationship with Joey, who is always looking for the next job.

Denbo is Sam Kandor, a former broadcast network president, who after an epic breakdown has adopted a more balanced lifestyle full of incense, yoga and a new gig at The Comfy Channel.

Wee plays Paige Kwan, the perky, ultra-driven VP of Development at The Comfy Channel who often oversteps when it comes to the production of Joey’s show.

Patel is Soozie, the long-suffering assistant to Sam and overly obsessive fan of New Kids on the Block.

Black plays Malcolm, a joyless executive at The Comfy Channel who keeps a tight watch over the show and Sam’s over-the-top ideas.

The Joey Mac Project is produced by T Group Productions and executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy, Joey McIntyre, Jenny Daly, Paul Greenberg and Tim Gibbons.

Ray is repped by APA and Avalon TV. Patel is repped by APA and Principato-Young. Denbo is repped by Pakula/King & Associates.

The series is executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy and Joey McIntyre, along with Tim Gibbons ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Paul Greenberg ("Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris") and Jenny Daly ("Storage Hunters").

As Joey starts to navigate THE TALK show circuit, he is joined by his often misguided manager and team played by a hysterical cast, including Adam Ray, Jamie Denbo, Katie Wee, Punam Patel and Jordan Black. Joey's real-life family members will also star in the show as themselves, including his wife Barrett and their three children, Griffin (eight years old), Rhys (six years old) and Kira (five years old).

THE JOEY MAC PROJECT cast members will include:

Adam Ray ("Mad TV," "The Heat," "Workaholics," "Ghostbusters," About Last Night Podcast) plays Alex, Joey's longtime manager and confidant whose poor impulse control and short-term ideas have led to a successful codependent relationship with Joey, who is always looking for the next job.

Comedy veteran Jamie Denbo ("Orange Is the New Black," "Yes Man," "Spy") has been cast as Sam Kandor, a former broadcast network president, who after an epic breakdown has adopted a more balanced lifestyle full of incense, yoga and a new gig at The Comfy Channel.

Katie Wee ("New Girl," "Rules of Engagement," "The Client List") is playing Paige Kwan, the perky, ultra-driven VP of Development at The Comfy Channel who often oversteps when it comes to the production of Joey's show.

Punam Patel ("Kevin from Work," "Toast") has been cast as Soozie, the long-suffering assistant to Sam and overly obsessive fan of New Kids on the Block.

Jordan Black ("Community," "The Mindy Project," "How I Met Your Mother") plays Malcolm, a joyless executive at The Comfy Channel who keeps a tight watch over the show and Sam's over-the-top ideas.

Wahlburgers Orlando and Donnie Wahlberg donate over $50,000 to Pulse victims

The Wahlburgers in Orlando raised money for OneOrlando Fund by selling t-shirt and Donnie added to the donation with $25,000 of his own money. Here is an article from IC Florida:

Wahlburgers Orlando and Donnie Wahlberg donate over $50,000 to Pulse victims

ORLANDO, Fla. — Wahlburgers Downtown Orlando has ended its fundraiser and will donate $50,403 to the #OneOrlando Fund. The restaurant raised $25,402 in t-shirt sales, and Donnie Wahlberg personally contributed an additional $25,000. A check presentation ceremony with the mayor and city officials is planned, and will be held at a future date pending Donnie Wahlberg’s schedule.

Donnie Wahlberg says, "I'm so grateful to the many generous guests of #Wahlburgers who purchased #OrlandoStrong t-shirts to help the victims still struggling in the wake of the horrible Pulse tragedy. Your generosity has inspired me so much that I am personally donating an additional $25,000 raising the total sum to the victims and their families to $50,000.”

“As a society, we often move on very quickly from such tragedies while the victims and their loved ones, most of whom will be affected forever, continue on the long and painful road to recovery and healing. Hopefully this donation will assist in that healing, and also serve as a reminder that there are still many victims struggling to rebuild their lives who need our continued financial and emotional support,” concludes Wahlberg.

“My family has a long history in this community, and our thoughts and prayers are forever with the victims and their families,” says Franchisee Gina Buell. “We want to personally thank our guests who purchased the t-shirts, our community for coming out in such strength, as well as our Wahlburgers family for their support. The logo that was designed for the #OrlandoStrong Wahlburgers t-shirt shows the peace, loveand strength between Boston and Orlando, two cities affected by senseless tragedies,” concludes Buell.

Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy event in Texas on October 1

Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy will be hosting an event in McKinney, TX on October 1st. The event will feature national and local celebrities and a performance by Cirque du Soleil. Here is some more information from PR Newswire:

McCarthy, Wahlberg Bring Star-Studded Event to North Texas
Trident Lakes To Dedicate New Equestrian Center to Generation Rescue
MCKINNEY, Texas, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Celebrities Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are bringing their unique glitz and glamour to North Texas for a star-studded fundraising event on Oct. 1. The power couple will host a party – "A Night of Hope" – featuring national and local celebrities and a performance by Cirque du Soleil, all benefitting McCarthy's autism charity: Generation Rescue.

The gala will be held at the residence of local businessman John Eckerd, chairman of MyMojo and Trident Lakes, and his wife, Lauren, in McKinney's prestigious Provine Farms.

Invited guests include Dennis Haysbert (24), Joey Fatone (*NSync), Debbe Dunning (Home Improvement), assorted Dallas Cowboys' alumni and various stars from Bravo's Real Housewives franchise including Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky, New Jersey's Jacqueline and Chris Laurita and Dallas' LeeAnne Locken, Tiffany Hendra, Stephanie Hollman, Brandi Redmond and Cary Deuber.

In conjunction with the party, an unprecedented new Trident Lakes real estate development located near Bonham, Texas will commence its official groundbreaking by dedicating its state-of-the-art equestrian center to McCarthy's Generation Rescue. Trident Lakes is a $300 million, 700-acre project planned to boast one of the world's largest fountains, 400 Earth-covered luxury condominiums and upscale amenities such as a golf course, spa, shooting ranges and massive blue lagoons for water sports.

The community's 100,000-square foot equestrian center will feature 100 stalls and encompass two riding arenas and a polo field. It will be named in honor of McCarthy's foundation – "The Generation Rescue Equestrian Center at Trident Lakes."

"There will be lots of amenities at Trident Lakes," says project CEO Jim O'Connor, "but no doubt the equestrian center - and especially those it helps - will always hold a very special place in all of our hearts."

McCarthy, who married Wahlberg in 2014, became involved with Generation Rescue in 2008 after her son, Evan, was diagnosed with autism. She is a star with successful careers as a model, media host, comedian and author. The couple also has their own A&E reality show, Donnie Loves Jenny.

Transcript for Las Vegas Cooking: Donnie Wahlberg Does Burgers on 'GMA':

You sent in pictures of your best creations and joining us now with us is Donnie Wahlberg, the singer, actor and reality star and owner of Wahlburgers. That's right. We'll have a big burger competition with our team but chat first. Holiday weekend coming up. I heard Vegas is the place to be? We just opened Wahlburgers in Vegas and it's really outside of Boston it was the place we most wanted to go to as our next location because if we're in Vegas we can reach the whole world because everyone from around the world goes to Vegas. It's a great place to eat. Great restaurant place so the competition to have great food is amazing and labor day weekend for it to be up and running is exciting. Also exciting because me and my wife are celebrating our second anniversary this weekend so we're going to go to Vegas and I get to visit. You're a spokesperson for Las Vegas but also when is a weekend not in Vegas, I mean it's always timing for Vegas. It's one of the other reasons we wanted to open in Vegas because it gives me and my brothers an excuse to constantly go to Vegas and I mean there's no better place to go. I'm glad your wife jenny is on board. She comes with me. I don't go alone. I don't go alone. Let's clarify, people. You brought three of the brother -- can you call them brother burgers. They're just signature burgers of the restaurant, we each -- Paul our brother is the chef and designed all the ingredients and recipes and everything, but we had a chance to, you know, give our own input. So mark, for example, he likes Thanksgiving -- in where is mark's burger. It's like Thanksgiving leftovers on a burger. Turkey burger, stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce and all this stuff and it's good and Paul has the signature burger of the restaurant which is called our burger, the whole family. Government cheese which we grew up on. We were very poor and had nine kids in the house and grew up on free cheese and took the same kind of cheese and put it in the burgers and melts the best, melts like that. I know how that melts. The government cheese just melts and we have my burger. Mine has jalapenos and avocados and you get Paul's like the momma bear. 'Kind of cold. Mark is like the daddy bear, he's kind of hot and I'm just right. Mine is just right. Not biased but we have a competition going on with Amy, Tom, okay, Amy and Tom.

You got 15 seconds. You make the burger and I will eat it. Okay -- You're going to eat it. I will taste them all. That is a very naughty way to squirt the sauce. Naughty. Okay. Seven, six -- I couldn't open it up. Four. Are you kidding me. Two, one. Oh, my gosh. I don't have anything. I probably should have told you at wahlburgers we put the condiments on the bottom, not the top. I couldn't get the bun open. The bun. That's what he said but that's a whole other story. Okay -- Donny, you said you'd eat it if I made it. I see both of you use bleu cheese. I don't really like bleu cheese so I'm probably going to go with this one. You totally copped out. Look at mine. Let me try this first. How does anyone eat that. That's why I don't cook in let me try. Get a bite of that, oh, my god. This is going -- Yep. Get in there. Oh, my gosh. Get in there. Yay.
