It's a match ... but not yet an engagement.
Patti Stanger and her beau, mortgage banker David Krause, appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday, and were asked by host Lara Spencer about reports they are engaged.
"We're not engaged yet," the star of Millionaire Matchmaker, 51, said. "But maybe watch the finale and you'll see something."
However, Stanger is sporting new jewelry: "I have a promise ring," she said on GMA, telling PEOPLE later in an exclusive statement from her rep, "A promise ring to me means a commitment. However, at the same time I have the freedom to take my time to consider marriage."

A standing ovation from her crew greeted Robin Roberts at the door of the ABC Times Square studio of Good Morning America, even before the sun rose Wednesday – exactly five months after the anchor had a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, a rare blood disorder.
Outside, in the street, a crowd of fans had already gathered with placards, banners and even an ebullient fellow from Dallas waving what he called the world's largest wristband, hailing his heroine. It read, "Welcome Back Robin."
Once the show hit the air, Roberts, with her colleagues surrounding her, looked into the camera, broke into a great big smile, and announced: "Hi, it's Robin. I've been waiting 174 days to do this: Good Morning America!"

In an exclusive interview, Good Morning America's Robin Roberts reveals for the first time that there was a point after her September bone marrow transplant, "where I felt like I was dying."
It was a few days after Roberts, 52, underwent the transplant for a rare blood and bone marrow disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome. "I couldn't eat or drink," she says. "I couldn’t even get out of bed."
Fading in and out of consciousness, Roberts recalls, "I was in a coma-like state. I truly felt I was slipping away … then I kept hearing my name."

She's healthy and coming back to television soon!
"It's a matter of weeks, not months," Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, speaking from her apartment, told viewers live on Monday's show. "I'm coming home."
Looking healthy and resplendent in purple, an emotional Roberts, 52, said she would be coming to work next week for what she described as a "dry run" – taking measure of where she goes on set, her stress level in the studio and her skin's reaction to the lights, all in preparation for a full return to the air.
"My last bone marrow aspiration showed no abnormalities – praise God," Roberts said to the delight of her GMA colleagues. "What all this means is, doctors were waiting for this information so that I can began the process of returning to the anchor chair."

Brooke Burke-Charvet put on a brave face Tuesday morning, recounting the emotional distress she endured leading up to her thyroidectomy.
Managing to stay smiling, the typically upbeat Dancing with the Stars co-host, 41, told Good Morning America her initial diagnosis was "shocking," adding, "I never thought I'd hear the word 'cancer' in relation to myself. The [thought] in my mind when I [heard the news] is that I'm a mother, I've got four children, I've got a family counting on me."
Burke-Charvet's brood was very supportive of her health condition, but it was especially tough for her older daughter.
