Niecy Nash had a little trouble controlling her emotions when she found out she was nominated for an Emmy this year – but her husband was the one who paid for public reaction.

"This year when the nominations came out I was at a restaurant having breakfast with my husband and all of a sudden my phone starts going crazy and I literally started bawling my eyes out," the Getting On and Scream Queens star tells PEOPLE in an exclusive video.

"We had to hurry up and leave the restaurant because everyone in the restaurant thought my husband was being mean to me," continues Nash, 46, who married electrical engineer Jay Tucker in 2011. "You have all these people giving him the stink eye, like, 'What is he saying to that woman?' "

For years, men like Jerry Seinfeld, David Letterman and Jon Stewart have toiled away on the comedy circuit, just to crash against a glass ceiling, struggling to make the same money or gain the same notoriety as their female counterparts. So few movies, sitcoms or late-night shows feature men in a leading role that journalists have finally begun asking, "How can this still be happening?"

As black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross says, "When I think of stories about men, I think … kitchen."

So men can't be funny? According to Allison Janney, the star of CBS' Mom: "Personally, I haven't seen it."

At her first wedding more than 16 years ago, actress and former Clean House host Niecy Nash tied the knot a in a quinceaçera gown and had "a Styrofoam heart in the middle of the table," she told PEOPLE in January. "It was just a mess."

Not today.

After months of planning with family, friends, and experts, Nash and electrical engineer Jay Tucker were married Saturday in an outdoor afternoon ceremony at the Church Estate Vineyard in Malibu, PEOPLE has learned. The reception took place in a tent.

"I have to say, this second time around, it feels custom," Nash said about her engagement to Tucker. "Even after I got my divorce, the ink wasn't even dry on the paper, and I said, 'Ooh, the next time I become a wife, I got this thing down pat!' I always believed that there was someone built for me."

Niecy Nash knew fiancé Jay Tucker was the man for her during her run on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, but it will take a little TLC for her to pull off her dream wedding – literally.

"I am telling you, I was so excited to find the man, I didn't even think about planning," newly engaged Nash tells PEOPLE.

Nash, 40, is going to get a little help with that planning: She announced Monday that the TLC network will air a two-hour special documenting her late-May wedding to Tucker, an electrical engineer, as well as the steps leading up to their wedding day, including finding a dress and the perfect venue.

"I am a woman who does not have the bride gene," says Nash. "No bridezilla here! I haven't been planning a wedding since I was three. I have to go to the experts to say, 'What am I supposed to do here?' And me and my mother watch Say Yes to the Dress religiously. So I'm really looking forward to it."
