“I mean this so sincerely, Mark. She changed my life,” she said, referring to the interview with Mark’s mother which went on for hours even though the schedule was supposed to last for 20 to 30 minutes. Sheinelle, a mother of three kids herself, continued, “For me, she was the true meaning of the word matriarch. She always talked about how you would call her every day.” Wahlberg went on to describe how his mom was the actual definition of hard work and that she faced numerous hardships in order to raise her nine kids. “She was truly an inspiration. You caught me off guard there by pulling out that one, and I am going to go watch that interview just so I can see her face. I mean, all I have now is the recordings and the voicemails that she left behind, and I listen to them quite often,” Wahlberg added in his interview with Sheinelle Jones.
