Here she is explaining it on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno on Tuesday (transcript via Blindgossip.com):
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 [sic] 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.
