Carmen Electra, Rob Patterson

Chris Polk/

If you pushed the snooze button instead of listening to Ryan Seacrest's morning show on KIIS-FM, then you probably don't know that marriage engagements are like stripper poles and that Carmen Electra doesn’t much care for paperwork. (Like they say, the early bird catches the, um, writhing, squirmy bit of information.)

While we had already told you that Carmen is in no rush to marry fiancé Rob Patterson, we didn’t know that her hesitation was due not to the fact that she'd been married twice before but to an aversion to filing.

Confused? Here's how Carm tells it...

"I feel like being engaged feels nice, because it’s a commitment but there’s no paperwork. And, um, I dunno. I feel like we’re happy, so why—I dunno, there’s no reason to push it to the next level when we’re content and we’re happy the way we are."

Ryan says he understands, kinda.

Ryan: It’s a portable stripper pole. You could really take it down from the ceiling if you had to, but you’re still committed enough so you don’t fall down.

Carmen: Exactly, exactly.

Ryan: And that’s what it’s all about.

Carmen: And that’s what it’s all about.

It is? Maybe we did hit "snooze" after all and just dreamt this whole, surreal thing.
