The newly married couple could barely wait to share their good news with the world: Welch changed her Instagram name to Alexis AStoudemire immediately after the wedding, before the athlete could even tweet the information out.

The Knicks power forward left Madison Square Garden with curvaceous Rose after the game and partied with her at Midtown lounge Covet, and they left together at 2 a.m.He really writes the best villains ever, and this guy was the worst of the worst,” Di Caprio explained to [email protected] on the Samsung Galaxy and Cinema Society red carpet at the screening of the film Tuesday.
