Casey Wilson’s ‘Wreckage of My Presence’ book relives SNL exit


A Penny for her thoughts: Casey Wilson‘s book of essays welcomes readers inside the mind of the very confident celebrity.

“I sent Oprah and Gayle King invitations to my wedding,” Wilson jokes to USA TODAY. The RSVP status from the famous besties is “response pending,” though she married writer/producer David Caspe in 2014. “I just hope they can find my new address, but I’m sure they’ll reach out,” says the actress (“Happy Endings,” “Black Monday”) and now author of “The Wreckage of My Presence.”

Wilson’s essays touch on light topics – like eating all her dinners in bed and her dad’s decision to get a perm – but also tackle tougher subjects including her mom’s sudden death from a heart attack and her elder son’s health issues.

“I love this genre of books where there’s little bite-size pieces and essays that make you laugh but also occasionally might make you cry,” she explains of the inspiration for the book she worked on for more than four years.

“I make a ton of jokes at my expense and just unbelievably terrible decisions I made,” she says, “and just want people to be able to have a laugh at my expense.”

On losing ‘SNL’: ‘The relief outweighed the regret’

Wilson joined “Saturday Night Live” in 2008 and lasted with the sketch show until 2009. She describes the time in her book as “the year and a half of utter madness,” when she started antidepressants to help deal with the loss of her mom and put on weight. When she wasn’t asked to return for the next season, she writes she didn’t shed a tear because “the relief outweighed the regret.”
