HILL: Your co-host Cat Cora was arrested recently for DUI. Have you spoken to her at all?
STONE: I saw her last night and she's doing fine. You know, of course, you go through this sort of stuff in life and you make some decisions you're not so proud of. I'm sure that she's had a tough time with it, but she's keeping her head up and she's doing alright.

HILL: You have good news in your life. A little engagement action?
STONE: Yeah, I did. I got engaged in the south of Italy with my darling girlfriend.
COWAN: Is that where you got engaged?
STONE: We did, yeah. We were on the Amalfi Coast. It was really special. She said yes, so I'm a happy man.
