    We're happy to report that Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba isn't letting her breakup with fiancé Jesse Sloan get her down much.

    "I'm OK," she told me at Entertainment Weekly's Emmy party at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood. "Everything is OK. Life is like that. Life is a journey and I go with it and I honor it."

    Inaba revealed a couple of weeks ago that she and Sloan, an accountant, called off their engagement earlier this summer. Sloan actually popped the question on Live! With Regis & Kelly in March 2011.

    The DWTS judge told us at last year's Emmys that the two were planning a small wedding. "[W]e're thinking intimate at the beach or maybe in our backyard," she said. "We just want to keep it simple and loving and funny."

    It doesn't sound like things got too messy when they decided to call it quits.

    "He and I are still friends," Inaba said. "And I'm also friends with his daughter. That's the most important part—his daughter. So, yes, we're all good."
