Mandy Moore, Watch What Happens Live


Mandy Moore is not in a love triangle with Minka Kelly and Wilmer Valderrama.

As Moore told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, "We're all close friends." Kelly and Valderrama were briefly linked in 2012 before romance rumors resurfaced earlier this month. Moore, who is best friends with Kelly and once dated Valderrama, has a laissez-faire attitude about the whole thing. "It's not weird," the This Is Us actress explained. "I love them both, and I've been friends with him for 15 years. We're like very, very close friends."

Moore dated Valderrama for a year, and they've remained friends even as they dated other people. "He was my first boyfriend when I was 15," the actress said. "We can still be friends."

Indeed, Moore and Valderrama proved exes really can be friends when they bumped into each other in July on the sets of NBC's This Is Us and CBS' NCIS. "Sometimes you get to work on the same lot as your friends and you can run over, catch up and watch them continue to be a bad-ass (in real life and on TV). Love this guy," Moore said on Instagram. "Friends for over 16 years."

So, what's going on with Moore's BFF and ex-boyfriend?

Earlier this month, after taking a trip to Mexico with Valderrama, Kelly denied ever being involved with the From Dusk Till Dawn actor. "He's not my ex. We are good friends and we always have been," she said. "It's funny, this whole 'back with my ex' thing. We're not exes!"

"It sucks when stories that aren't true are made up, you know?" the Path actress continued in an interview with Power 106. "Look, if it's true and it's out, then it's true and it's out. When it's not true and it's out is when it's really frustrating. You just have to find the comedy in all of it." Valderrama knows how to treat a lady, Kelly added. "He's a good friend to me," she told the radio host. "Wilmer's a really, really good person, and any woman would be lucky to have him."

Moore, meanwhile, has been dating Dawes' lead singer for about a year Taylor Goldsmith. "I am very happy!" she recently told In Touch. "[Taylor] is a gem of a person. I really lucked out."
