'Dancing With the Stars' judge Carrie Ann Inaba gets engaged on TV

March 31, 2011 | 11:59 am

Inaba Carrie Ann Inaba is likely to give this performance a 10! The “Dancing With the Stars” judge was proposed to while filling in for Kelly Ripa on "Live With Regis and Kelly."

Her boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan, popped the question Thursday on the morning show with the help of Regis Philbin, who read a letter on air from a man looking for ideas on how to propose to his girlfriend — and  then Sloan appeared.

Cue the dimmed lights and violins! Then cue Sloan droning on and on about Inaba’s finer qualities. 

“I struggle to find the words to express what you mean to me,” Sloan said. “You’re an inspiration. You’re everything to me. Will you marry me?”

Judging from her acceptance, she liked his execution.

We’re sure, though, Bruno would have found something to critique about it.
