Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy Have Hot Chocolate Together Every Night

For newlywed Donnie Wahlberg, life at home with wife Jenny McCarthy is certainly sweet.

“Jenny and I have hot chocolate together every night,” Wahlberg told PEOPLE at the Say Hello with Keurig 2.0 pop-up in New York City on Wednesday. “I know a cup of hot chocolate doesn’t sound glamorous but it’s those quiet moments with us as a family that are my favorite. We have our own things during the day, but this is our time to cuddle up and catch up on our days.”

Professionally, life for the couple has been “non-stop” since they got married over Labor Day weekend: Wahlberg continues to star on CBS’s Blue Bloods, produce and star in A&E’s Wahlburgers and perform with the New Kids on the Block, while McCarthy hosts her new SiriusXM radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny.

“I know it may seem like we’re extroverts because we spend so much time in front of the camera and we’ll talk about openly about our lives, but Jenny and I are real homebodies,” he says. “We’re not really party people. If we had our way, we would just lay in bed all day watching Naked & Afraid.”

Despite his domestic inclinations, you’re probably not going to find Wahlberg cooking up a multi-course meal in the kitchen anytime soon.

“Jenny does most of the cooking at home and she’s really good at it. And that’s a good thing because I’m not much help in the kitchen. If you want some toast with butter, I’m your guy,” says Wahlberg, who is partnering with Keurig to offer winners a chance to meet him for a coffee date in N.Y.C.

Of course, even homebodies need to escape sometimes: So a long-awaited honeymoon is up next for the newlyweds, someplace “not cold,” hints Wahlberg. “We’re looking forward to getting away, relaxing and spending some uninterrupted time together … with hot chocolates every night.”

Nursing Assistant Teresa Romero Clear of Ebola Virus, Spanish Authorities Say

10/19/2014 AT 04:15 PM EDT

An initial test shows that a nursing assistant who became infected with Ebola in Spain is now clear of all traces of the virus nearly two weeks after she was hospitalized, authorities said Sunday.

Teresa Romero, 44, is the first person known to have contracted the disease outside West Africa in the current outbreak when she tested positive for the virus Oct. 6. She has been in quarantine at Carlos III hospital in Madrid since then.

A statement Sunday said a blood test revealed that Romero’s immune system had eliminated the virus from her body. The statement came from the Spanish government committee in charge of the nation’s Ebola crisis. A second test in the coming hours is needed to absolutely confirm Romero’s recovery, said Manuel Cuenca, microbiology director at Madrid’s Carlos III health care complex.

Romero had treated two patients who died of Ebola at Carlos III hospital. The first, Miguel Pajares, contracted the disease in Liberia and died on Aug. 12, despite having been treated with the experimental drug ZMapp. The second was Manuel Garcia Viejo who died at the age of 69 on Sept. 25.

Health authorities quarantined Romero’s husband and euthanized Romero’s pet dog, Excalibur, on Oct. 8 instead of placing it in quarantine, creating outrage among animal rights activists.

Spain, meanwhile, has agreed to allow the United States to use two military bases in the southwest of the country to support its efforts to combat the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

A Defense Ministry statement said the deal permits U.S. armed forces to use the air base at Moron de la Frontera near Seville and the naval station at Rota on Spain’s Atlantic coast to transport personnel and materials to and from Africa. Defense Minister Pedro Morenes sealed the deal with U.S. counterpart Chuck Hagel in Washington.

The ministry statement, released late Saturday, said the agreement will be reviewed and updated on a case-by-case basis and would also permit U.S. forces to use the bases against IS militants. The United States has made use of the bases since the 1950s.

Drastic Celebrity Transformations That Will Make Your Head Spin

Stars: They’re just like you and me. They go to the beach, they order pizza on Fridays, and — you know — get 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day. OK, maybe that last one isn’t so relatable, but it’s definitely worth talking about.

One major difference between celebrities and us earthlings is that Hollywood’s finest can completely transform their looks at the drop of a hat. Or better yet, with a needle full of Botox. Let’s take a look.

Now, it’s not just plastic surgery that reinvents celebrities’ bodies. Some stars like Jennifer Hudson transformed through diet and exercise. On the flip side, Star Jones lost a staggering 160 pounds after a gastric bypass surgery. And who can deny the drab-to-fab power of a new hairdo (and nose-job)? NeNe Leakes certainly can’t.

These star transformations are about to rock your world. Take a look at the gallery, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Candice Accola and Joe King are married!

The Vampire Diares star and The Fray rocker exchanged “I do’s” Saturday in New Orleans, PEOPLE confirms.

Accola’s CW costars past and present Kayla Ewell (who was a bridesmaid), Michael Trevino, Kat Graham, Claire Holt and Paul Wesley all attended the romantic nuptials, while Ian Somerhalder couldn’t make it but sent love to the couple via Instagram and offered best wishes for their “magical day.”

King, 34, popped the question in May 2013. The couple first met at a Super Bowl event – but it took costar Nina Dobrev to seal the deal.

“I was too chicken to give him my number, so Nina did,” Accola, 27, told PEOPLE in June 2013 of their sweet first meeting.

The marriage is also a match made in music heaven: King plays guitar for the Grammy-nominated band, and Accola has shown off her own impressive pipes on TVD.

The couple even shared a steamy kiss in The Fray’s “Love Don’t Die” music video.

This is the first marriage for Accola and the second for King, who has two daughters, Ava and Elise, from his previous marriage.
