'Marry Me' Star Casey Wilson Reveals the 1 Personal Topic She Forbids on the Show

Casey Wilson and Ken Marino

Depending on the relationship, working with your husband can either sound like a dream or a nightmare (some couples need that separation between home and office and there is nothing wrong with that). When actress Casey Wilson signed on to star in husband David Caspe's NBC sitcom Marry Me, she knew there would at least be a little bit of their relationship included in the show, but that doesn't mean she didn't set a couple of her own parameters.

At the Paley Center's Fall TV Previews, Wilson admitted to The Stir the one subject she put on the banned topics list.

"All of my dieting," she says. "I was like, 'I don’t think anyone needs to hear about all of that.' I don’t think we’ll be seeing a lot of dieting stories, like someone throwing their phone with the Weight Watchers app against the wall."

Wilson and Caspe married just two months after they filmed Marry Me's pilot, which she describes as really fun but also really crazy. Unlike her onscreen alter-ego Annie, Wilson says she was not as desperate to get engaged ... but notes it's because in real life she and Caspe had been dating for two years whereas Marry Me's Annie and Jake have been an item for six.

While Marry Me's first episode harps on the extent to which Jake has been dragging his feet on popping the question, Ken Marino, who plays the well-meaning but slow on the proposal character, advises men in long-term relationships to put a ring on it already ... and do some fact finding before you buy the sparkler. 

"Make sure you ask a lot of questions about what kind of ring she might want and then get that one," he suggests. "Don’t try to change it up by using your grandma’s ring or something. And then be a little colorful with your proposal. Do something a little special. And hurry up. Either shit or get off the pot, you know what I mean? You’re not getting any younger. Just do it. If you love the person, do it. What are you waiting for?"

Marry Me, premiering tonight, airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.

What say you -- could you work with your husband?
