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

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.”

But Stern, 53 does seem to plan to tie the knot with Ostrosky – at some point. “I never thought I would get married again,” he said. “Beth’s a special girl. It just worked out.”

And when pushed for what sort of wedding they might have, Stern joked, “Sometimes we fantasize about actually having a wedding with the white dress and the whole thing – because I look great in a white dress. . . . But then we think we’d just have some friends over for a party, something like that.”
