Ali Wentworth’s Classy Engagement

[BlindGossip] Before Alexandra Wentworth met and married George Stephanopoulos, she dated an comedian. On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday night, the funny actress described one particularly eventful date with the comedian.

Here’s the story. I was living with this guy. We’ll call him… Josh.

I came home one afternoon and he said, “Ali, I’m really worried. There’s something wrong. I was in the shower, and I felt something… I think it’s a ployp… you need to check it out.”

So, I’m from a very uptight, waspy, blue-blood family. We don’t look in orafices and holes. I didn’t even poop until I went to college. That’s how uptight we are.

But it’s a medical emergency… So he put down a towel, and he’s naked, and he laid down on his stomach. And I – very gingerly and in a very elegant way – parted his buttocks and reached in…

…and I pulled out a diamond ring. And he said “Will you marry me?” I said, “Of course I’ll marry you!”

Well, I ended up not marrying him, but to this day, I wondered if I had dug deeper, I could have had a tiara by now..

1. Does anyone know to whom Ali Wentworth was engaged before George Stephanopoulos?

2. Did you know that Ali and George met on a blind date, got engaged two months later, and married within a year?

2. Do you think Ali ever calls George “Schmoopy”?

Here’s a video from last night’s show. The conversation about the engagement starts at approximately the 3:15 mark. From NBC:
