    Priyanka Chopra: I'm a terrible wife

    Priyanka Chopra has joked she's a "terrible wife" because she "can't cook". The 36-year-old actress married singer Nick Jonas last year, and has now revealed she warned him when he proposed to her that whilst he was used to have amazing home cooked meals from his mother, he wouldn't be getting the same treatment when he married her, because she's awful in the kitchen. Luckily for the 'Quantico' actress, the 26-year-old Jonas Brothers star didn't mind her lack of culinary expertise, as he admitted he too struggles when it comes to meal times. Priyanka added during an appearance on 'The View' on Tuesday: "I'm a terrible, terrible wife in that sense, but the most amazing thing when I told him that, 'Babe, I can't cook and I hope you know that,' he said, 'It's alright babe, neither can I.' But you don't hear that from guys!
