Would You Buy the NKOTB Bed Sheets?

With the release of BHBC, NKOTB’s throwback collection of Home Goods and Apparel, the New Kids On The Block included a blanket, but not the bed sheets. On Monday, they made a poll asking which size we’d get if we could buy them.

Here are some of the responses BHs tweeted; many of them brought in the “husband” factor, like Alexandra:

Some mentioned other kind of accessories (thank you Tania!)

“So how about pet accessories? I think it would be adorable for lil’Homie to sleep on a @nkotb bedsheet pet bed… or harness, or shirt”

And others were like …

On Thursday the Macs were in their house summer house in Cape Cod, and that’s where they spent the 4th of July.

Movie Recommendation: In The Heights

“In The Heights,” based on the musical by Lil-Manuel Miranda, tells the story of Usnavi, a New York bodega owner who saves every penny every day as he imagines and sings about a better life.

Joey McIntyre posted on Twitter,

“Oh yeah… if you don’t LOVE #InTheHeightsMovie please don’t talk to me for a while cuz if it comes up in conversation that you don’t LOVE @intheheights I’m gonna walk away midsentence…at least for the summer. See this movie in a theatre. ????”
