Apparently Tunney had taken ill during the Rio de Janeiro vacation her beau planned to pop the question. To Marmet's dismay, his soon-to-be bride upchucked all over him before he could get down on one knee.

"I had what I thought was Dengue Fever and I threw up over his shoulder when he was about to take the ring out," Tunney told Us.

Luckily, the second time was a charm for Marmet and the two became engaged on Christmas Day in Brazil.

"I was shocked," she added. "I was too ill to notice anything was up in Bahia so he'd caught me completely off guard."

Tunney, 40, has been married once before. The star ended her marriage to producer Bob Gosse in 2002.
