The former girlfriend of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has found new love with businessman Andrew Frankel. The Blue Bloods actress confirmed the news on Instagram that she and the New York finance exec exchanged vows over the weekend in the Hamptons — a familiar atmosphere for the Manhattan-ites.
This is the first marriage for Moynahan who lived through a high-profile relationship with Brady over 10 years ago. The footballer, now married to Gisele Bundchen, shares eight-year-old son John with the actress.
Although the weekend nuptials came as a surprise to many, it might be no shocker that it took place in the Hamptons. Last year, Moynahan revealed to People Magazine that the East Coast beach serves as the ideal vacation locale.
"We went to the Hamptons, ran on the beach, played golf, tennis. That's just kind of how I like to spend my summer. Just easy and active."
Tracy Morgan Returns To SNL
Tracy Morgan, after a year in recovery, has returned to make us fall off our seats in laughter. The 30 Rock alum and longtime comic took the stage to host SNL this weekend alongside musical guest, Demi Lovato.
Morgan, who has since sued Wal-Mart, was in a coma last June following a car crash that took the life of Morgan's limo driver. The Wal-Mart driver was reportedly lacking sleep before crashing into Morgan's limousine.
After thanking his fans, family and colleagues for their unwavering support through the last 16 months of turmoil, Morgan delivered a hilarious monologue and continued his long-awaited comedy through the show. Old friends of his including Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski brought back memories to the crowd and viewers at home who have been long awaiting Morgan's much-deserved return home to NBC.

It's been almost a week since former Lakers star, Lamar Odom, was found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel. After a dark 24 hours in which many thought Odom's emotionally turmoiled life had come to an end, the estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian made somewhat of a "miraculous recovery." While the reality star is definitely not out of the woods yet, he is showing promising signs of improvement and has even developed some hopeful communication to his family, including the Kardashians.
Khloe, who has not left Lamar's bedside since Tuesday night, has been comforted by her own family including Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who have all visited Lamar since the ordeal. Although the ladies had work commitments on Thursday and Friday in Los Angeles, the family trekked back to Vegas on Saturday to show support for their somewhat adopted son.
After Odom had said "Hey baby" to Khloe upon waking up out of his coma, Kim Kardashian West is also now confirming that he smiled when she and Kendall visited the pro-athlete earlier this weekend. North's mom shared the sentiments on Instagram.
Justin Bieber Song Feat. Selena Gomez Leaks

Beliebers went relatively nuts on Saturday night when a particularly interesting song leaked from 21-year-old Justin Bieber that featured a familiar tune... ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
The song "Strong" was accidentally leaked online over the weekend and while that causes a stirred up reaction in its own right, it was the extra set of vocals on this ballad that gave Beliebers some hope for a reunion with his lost love.
Beyond that, the song is about their once volatile relationship. This song does anything but sweep their ups and downs under the carpet — it brings them to the musical surface. Although the song has already been taken down from YouTube, we can't imagine that we'll have to wait that much longer to hear these two behind the mic.
James Franco Celebrates Bar Mitzvah
James Franco is officially a man... according to the rules of Judaism. Actually, in that regard, he's technically been a man for over 20 years — most of his female fans would agree.
Anyway, in a totally awesome charity event this weekend, Seth Rogen and wife Lauren (who work with Hilarity for Charity) threw Rogen's best bud an unforgettable Bar Mitzvah at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday. By unforgettable, we mean Miley Cyrus performed.
The proceeds of the party benefit Rogen's cause, Hilarity for Charity — an organization "creating the next generation of Alzheimers advocates."
Rogen elaborated on the fanfare event a few weeks ago. "Ever since I've known James, he's been asking about wanting a bar mitzvah. We're excited to see him finally become a man while also helping us raise awareness and funds for people living with Alzheimer's and towards research that will lead to a cure."
Rogen, who was inspired to help the Alzheimer's community by his wife continued, "And in celebration we'll also have a mohel and a live bris for James at the event. You don't want to miss it."
No word on the bris.
