Allison Williams is delaying her wedding to CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen, but don't blame dad Brian. The brouhaha that led to his suspension from NBC News is just one reason, she explained to Seth Meyers during a Q&A Wednesday night at New York's 92nd Street Y. "It's been a very full year," the Girls star said, according to E!, when explaining her reasons. "You sort of think, 'What could possibly come along that would make me not think about [wedding planning]?' And then I got cast as Peter Pan and I think, 'Okay, I will think only about Neverland and then we'll go back to talking about 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."

She spoke more about her father, saying the situation has been tough, but "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." In other Williams family news, Stars and Stripes reports Brian Williams yesterday stepped down from the board of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation; he joined the board in 2006. (Meanwhile, Williams' wife has stepped out for the first time since his suspension.)
