Daytime Host Engaged
Labor Day weekend was full of love on the East Coast for our favorite TV personalities, from late-night to daytime. News anchor turned daytime host Katie Couric was proposed to by her boyfriend, banker John Molner, says Extra. While spending the weekend in East Hampton, John popped the question on a beach while the sun set and Katie said yes, of course! Molner and Couric have been dating almost two years.
Katie thanked her friends and fans by tweeting, “Yes it’s true! So touched by all the kind Tweets & warm wishes – thank you! A great end to the summer.” What’s more, Couric’s daytime talk show Katie has been renewed for season two, premiering on Monday. This will be the first marriage for John, while Katie lost her husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998. Monahan and Couric have two daughters together, Ellie, 22, and Carrie, 17.

SNL “Anchor” Married
This Sunday at Martha’s Vineyard, Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers, soon to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night, married his fiancé of only two months, Alexi Ashe. After several years of dating and a very short engagement (do we smell a bun in the oven?), the couple wed in front of Seth’s current and former SNL co-stars Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Taran Killam and Fred Armisen, as well as Lorne Michaels himself. According to People magazine, other stars on the 150-person guest list included Allison Williams (Girls), Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation), and Nick Kroll (The League, The Nick Kroll Show), on the arm of girlfriend Amy Poehler, no doubt.
On top of planning a wedding in record time, we tip our hats to Alexi for taking on most of the planning duties alone. While promoting his new animated Hulu series ‘The Awesomes,’ at the TCA Summer Tour, he joked with fans about having to tell Alexi, “I’d love to do a cake tasting, but I have to go to Comic-Con.” We don’t have any pictures of the nuptials yet, but we can be assured that Alexi is in for a lifetime of laughter.
