You'll Never Guess How Allison Williams Got Engaged!
Hint: It involves a couch, reality TV, and Lee Eisenberg.
Allison Williams is a huge fan of The Bachelor. Like huge. The Girls actress appeared on Bachelor Live last night to chat with Chris Harrison about the ABC show-and something big, crazy, and dramatic happened. But it wasn't due to the antics of a contestant; rather it was a revelation courtesy of Williams! During her visit, she revealed, "I would not be married to my husband if it wasn't for this show." Huh?
It turns out, while dating her now-husband, CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen, the two attended weekly viewing parties ("like a big group date, with both genders equally distributed") hosted by their friend, TV and movie producer Lee Eisenberg. So to propose, Van Veen naturally incorporated his girl's interest. "[Eisenberg] has a couch where we always watch the show, and that's where Ricky proposed to me, was on Lee Eisenberg's couch."
We can only hope he offered her a rose. One thing's for sure: She accepted it! The couple tied the knot at Wyoming's Brush Creek Ranch in September and honeymooned in Naples and the Amalfi Coast.
But the wedding wasn't Williams' only turn as a bride this year! She also donned a wedding dress for the upcoming season of Girls, when her character, Marnie, is set to walk down the aisle. She certainly makes a beautiful bride!
