Alma Wahlberg was featured in a 2018 WCVB primetime special as part of Maria Stephanos' "Someone You Should Know" series.

"People know me as being the mother of famous children, and although this fact has brought many gifts into my life and has afforded me opportunities that may never have been possible otherwise, there is a whole lot more to my story than most people know," Alma Wahlberg said during that interview.

"I've lived with alcoholism and abuse; struggled with poverty and experienced great wealth; lost so many that I've loved; struggle to raise nine children, and I love them more than anything else; watch them suffer, learn and come out on the other side; lost myself; found myself, again and again; and kept moving forward no matter what."
