Latina beauty Odette Yustman has just been cast on the hit show Brothers & Sisters as her real-life fiance Dave Annable’s new love interest.  

The chemistry on set should be palpable as Yustman and Annable are getting married this fall. "He proposed over Valentine’s Day weekend and we started planning quickly.  I figured, I want to marry you, you want to marry me, so let’s start this," she says.

Yustman’s also been busy practicing her Latin cooking for her hubby-to-be and told Latina.com that she is getting dangerously good. Apparently Annable, who plays Justin on the hit ABC family drama agrees. "I've mastered tostones and make a great Ropa Vieja," boasts the cubana. "My fiance always says 'This is the best thing ever! I will try anything you make.”

Yustman is a super busy lady, with a new film opening this weekend (You Again), her guest stint on Brothers & Sisters and all the planning for the wedding—but one thing she doesn’t have to worry about is teaching her guy how to salsa dance. "Oh, he’s got his moves down pat!" gushes Yustman. "Believe it or not, he’s almost better at dancing Salsa than me, luckily he came taught already!"
