Dorchester get ready

Um, I’m not even sure what to say to the news that New Kids on the Block are rumored to be getting back together.? Apparantly they’re still hanging tough?

Anyway, People is reporting this news.? Based on the fact that the website NKOTB is up and running.? Which, you know is always a good reason to speculate.

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.

Sources indicate that an announcement will be made next week. ? Ugh.? If you’re so inclined and ever want a funny story about NKOTB and me scammy girls in my fifth-grade class drop me a line.? That was the sound of me driving my car over the cliff.
