The Blue Bloods star reveals she likes to be in charge of cooking the feast on the annual holiday, but preparing the meal one year turned into a nightmare - just as she was putting the finishing touches to her dishes.

"I had a Thanksgiving disaster," she laughs. "I had everybody out there at the table, I was mashing the potatoes. I went for the salt, I went for the pepper, and the cover of the pepper fell off and the whole thing dumped into the mashed potatoes!"

Desperate Moynahan couldn't think of a speedy culinary solution for the problem, so she decided to clear up the mishap the only way she knew how.

"The table was waiting, so I got the vacuum cleaner out and I just sucked it up!," she confesses.
