"I get to see a lot of Nick when I'm not around [thanks to 'Newlyweds']. That's interesting to me, to see what he talks about and what he does. I was surprised most that marriage wasn't a fairy tale. I think I expected it to be perfect. I think it's good that it's not because then I wouldn't want anything else in life."
