The First New Kids on the Block Photo in 15 Years...

...was just posted in a Yahoo story, and I'll be damned if they don't look the same as they did back in the day. Eerily so.

They'll be on the Today show on Friday discussing "rumors" of a reunion tour. Please. If they WEREN'T doing it, would they be releasing publicity shots? (Renee, can you watch or tape it and report back?) =-)

Joey's so fucking hot still. I don't care what anyone says, I'd hit that in a heartbeat.

Yeah, I'll set the dvr right now
:-)

Anna said...

They're lookin' pretty good!

Man, they were big when I was in Jr. High. How old are they now?

I heard the Backstreet Boys are getting back together, too.

Jen said...

All in their mid to late 30s Anna.

They're CLASSIC. =-)

Nik said...

I saw the headline today and seriously, my only thought was, "well at least Jen, Renee, and Katey will be excited about this". hehehe

Renee said...

LOL, Nik. I wouldn't say I'm EXCITED... intrigued, maybe. All their fans are gonna be 30-year-olds and possibly their kids. I'm afraid it's gonna be a sad attempt for them.

But I'd still do Joey :-)

Renee said...

So yeah, nothing much to report. They're going on tour next month. Their first "show" will be on May 16th on the Today show.

Jonathon hid behind the other guys the whole time, and Meredith asked them to introduce themselves in case some people don't know who they are. His face turned red when he said "Hi, I'm Jonathon". Donnie and Joey look cute. Jordan still looks gay, Danny still looks like an ape, and like I said, Jonathon can't even speak in public. We'll see how it goes...

Jen said...

shawn sent me the link. I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT. and fyi, jonathon has some kind of social phobia/anxiety thing. i read it somewhere. is he the gay one or was it jordan? (and don't say "they're all gay," assholes) ;)

Jen said...

PS--I dont think it'll be a sad attempt at ALL. Did you see the audience's reaction?! I think it'll be huge. They'll appeal to girls today and their moms.

I'm gonna say they're all gay, but that's just one gals opinion. hehehehe

Renee said...

LOL. Yeah, I read the same thing on Jonathon. That's why I can't believe he's even doing this. Did you watch the footage? I was embarrassed and uncomfortable FOR him. It was weird.

Jordan is the one who looks gay. But I think he's married and has like 50 kids or something.

look look its brandi!

Jen said...

Brandi!!!!!! hey guys, do you know she up and got married?

Renee said...

Hey Brandi! Good to know you're okay... your last blog post (in like 2006) was kinda worrisome! Congrats on getting married and inheriting a step-daughter!

Hey, let's just look at it this way. what group from our parents era was able to make a comeback. Not too many considering they all overdosed in the prime of their careers. this is great. I always liked Donnie. Always the bad guy...and yes Jonathon does have social anxiety. And...my Mother use to buy me NKOTB stuff just to hear my scream. I was THAT into them :). And Nik - come on girl, where is the love? We still support Def Leopard :). I know, no comparison right :)?

Nik said...

Kish-- I never had any love for NKOTB. I was one of the rare few who hated them when they were cool! So, no chance in hell of me liking them now, either. Oh and I should beat you for putting NKOTB and DL in the same post. LOL

*~Lynda~* said...

Thats why you are my BEST friend Nik, I hated them, never liked them, was not a fan of anything they did. I was a hair band lover. Send me to a Crue concert any day!

Renee said...

LMAO Nik (about the beating).

keesh said...

oh Nik, you are so tough...I know deep down you would never do that :)...at work they were saying, so now will the be called "the old guys on the block formally known as the new kids on the block." HA HA
