Original Mark Wahlberg Outgrows 9,000-Square-Foot Mansion

Hollywood badass, Mark Wahlberg, and his family of five will eventually be moving into a custom, 30,000-square-foot mega-mansion because they no longer fit in their current Beverly Hills abode.

We actually like Mark Wahlberg quite a bit. Based on interviews alone, he seems like a fine fellow.

But it must be tough trying to get by in a home that is five times the size of an average family home and boasts seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, an indoor gym, media room, an outdoor tennis court and pool, and a fabulous gourmet kitchen.

When is enough enough? What will happen when his children leave their new 30,000-square-foot nest? He'll probably sell this new monstrosity (just like every other celebrity does) and move into a new, smaller, second or third home somewhere else. It's all so absurdly superficial and wasteful. 

We know for a fact that Mr. Wahlberg gives back to the community and we can't begrudge him for spending his wealth as he sees fit. But we every right to comment on how he spends his treasure. After all, without our ongoing support, he'd probably be selling insurance. Celebrities with his kind of influence could do so much more ... but they rarely go above and beyond what is recommended by their publicist.
