Howard Stern: It’s Better to Be Engaged Than Married

Howard Stern: It’s Better to Be Engaged Than Married

From People By Liz Corcoran and Stephen M. Silverman

Five months after their engagement, Howard Stern and fiancée Beth Ostroksy are no nearer to announcing plans for their nuptials.

"Well, we don't really have wedding plans," Stern told PEOPLE Saturday at a party hosted by Hamptons magazine, which features Ostrosky on the cover. "We're enjoying being engaged. We like the whole idea of being engaged. We think we like it even more than the idea of being married."

As for their future plans, "we think for another year we could be engaged," he said.

The news will come as no surprise to those who recall Stern's vow never to marry again after a fake wedding announcement on his radio show last year. "I am not married," he said at the time. "It's a nice feeling that we get along great. We're very happy and I don't want to f--- it up."

Tango’s Take The King Of All Media has been married before and has kids from that marriage. He must know what he’s getting into, but why does so much change with a little ceremony and ring? Not to trivialize the institution of marriage but why do people that cohabitate have a greater likelihood of divorce? Howard Stern (the radio guy not the Anna Nicole Smith lawyer) realizes that something does change when you get married. Is it just because it’s official? Hopefully, once they do get married he’ll feel free to share a little bit of dirt on their marriage. He owes us that much.

More Celebrity News: According to Jamie Burke and Sienna Miller have decided to go their separate ways after 8 months or so. Word on the street is that Jamie was not thrilled about Sienna Miller spending time with Diddy. Does this give any more credence to the Diddy-Sienna Miller romance rumor, especially after Sean Combs and 10-year girlf Kim Porter have split? We hear that the new Sienna Miller picture, Interview, is pretty awesome, so hopefully we’ll be hearing more about that in the near-term.

Speaking of unhappy: Tom Brady’s ex-girlfriend, Bridgette Moynahan, is due to give birth next week. Possibly on Gisele Bunchen’s birthday. Supposedly, these guys had a bit of a blow up in Napa over the weekend. But they are also ‘supposedly’ planning a wedding in Brazil before the football season begins. So who knows anything about anything anymore? We do know that Gisele made like $36 million last year, so she’ll be aight.
