Girls Star Allison Williams Speaks Out Following Brian Williams' Suspension

It’s a tough time for the Williams family, but they’re sticking together. Girls and Peter Pan star Allison Williams, daughter of NBC News anchor Brian Williams, spoke about her father’s six-month suspension for the first time on Wednesday in New York City. During a Q&A with Seth Meyers, she acknowledged that it has been difficult for the family and defended her father, who lied about being fired at while in Iraq in 2003. She said, “One thing the experience has not done is shake my trust and belief in him as a man. He’s a really good man. He’s an honest man. He’s a truthful man. He has so much integrity. He cares so much about journalism. And yes, he’s a really good dad. I know you can trust him because, as any good daughter does, I’ve tested him on that.” Though Allison is engaged to Ricky Van Veen, co-founder of CollegeHumor, she admitted that with the hectic year, the wedding is on hold. “It’s been a very full year,” Allison said. “You sort of think, ‘What could possibly come along that would make me not think about this?’ And then I get Peter Pan and I think, ‘Okay, I will think only about Neverland and then we’ll go back to planning our wedding.’ Then current events started happening, so that derailed it a little bit, but it has been this really beautiful through line in our lives. It’s just something we haven’t focused on, but, spoiler alert, we are excited!”   [Lead image via]
