    New Kids on the Block reuniting

    From People online:



    After months of speculation and rumor, the Kids are coming back. A well-placed source tells PEOPLE exclusively that New Kids On The Block are indeed getting back together.

    The band's Web site, THE OFFICIAL NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK WEBSITE - NKOTB.COM, which had been dormant, is now back up and running in anticipation of the official announcement, which the source says will be made in the next few weeks.

    The site currently features a television graphic with a fuzzy, flickering photos of NKOTB in their heyday, and a link inviting fans to sign up for info.

    The boy band, which made legions of tweens swoon in the early '90s, selling more than 50 million albums, became a worldwide phenomenon before calling it quits in 1994.

    Eighteen years later, they're still "Hangin' Tough." The oldest "Kid," Jonathan Knight, now a real estate developer, will turn 40 later this year. Since the band's demise, former members Donnie Wahlberg, 38, and Joey McIntyre, 35, have seen acting success, while Danny Wood, 38, has worked as a music producer and Knight's brother, Jordan, 37, has continued to record.

    WOW.


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    I Wonder if they'll still have the "Right Stuff"?

    All I picture Donnie Wahlberg as now is that skinny trembley guy in his undies shooting Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense

    Actually the one on the right went on to be successful in music. I think he is a producer/songwriter now for some pop musicians.

    Re: New Kids on the Block reuniting

    Sometime in the early 1990's, I was in NYC midtown Manhattan for a conference. My colleagues and I walked out of our hotel, and noticed a horde of screaming girls surrounding a limosine a couple of blocks away. Some guys got into the limo and it pulled away. A buch of screaming girls started running after the limo. Immediately thereafter, a fleet of taxis pulled up, and number of the screaming girls got into the taxis, and the taxis chased after the limo as it pulled up to its next stop, and the guys got out.

    We were just going out to get some food, so we watched this whole thing for awhile. A few minutes later, the guys came and got into the limo, the girls screamed, the limo pulled away, some screaming girls ran after the limo, some screaming girls got into the taxis which chased the limo to its next stop. This happened a couple of more times.

    Turns out the NKOTB were doing a press junkett of some kind. Absolutely crazy scene...
