HOLLYWOODLIFE: Do you feel like it’s going to change the dynamic on the show at all, with her wedding planning and things like that?
MARGARET: Yeah, I think it lends to some fun! I don’t see her being a bridezilla, because she’s excited. I mean they wanted to get engaged, they want to get married. We’re both looking forward to it!
