Before the event began, Joey shared his excitement about the show with me. ‘I have a certain sensibility and sense of humor, and I was able to put together a team of good writers and actors. I created the show, and I kindof went for it. You have to ask for help and hope people will show up, and they did for me. It’s something I’ve never done and I’m proud of the final outcome’ said the still smokin’ hot (and happily married) father of three.
RETURN OF THE MAC stars Joe as a version of himself alongside his real-life family—wife Barrett and their three children, Griffin (8), Rhys (6) and Kira (5). As he embarks on a hilarious quest to be taken seriously as a legit actor, Joey is thrown into the reluctant role of a talk show host at a fledgling 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 played by a hysterical cast, including Adam Ray, Jamie Denbo, Katie Wee, Punam Patel and Jordan Black. There are even some cameos from fellow executive producers Donnie Wahlberg (of NKOTB and amazing sweaty abs fame) and Jenny McCarthy (his equally gorgeous wife).
