Bell introduced Shepard to her relatives last November (09) for America's Thanksgiving holiday, and the actor eventually proposed in January (10).

But the Heroes star was left speechless at a formal family dinner, when her "sweet" aunt tried to lighten the mood with a filthy joke.

She recalls, "At Thanksgiving, which is about 15 people -10 of which were over 75 - my sweet, sweet aunt... decided she was all of a sudden bit by a commy (comedienne) bug. And she says, 'I've got a joke!' And we all thought, 'OK, this is weird.'"

And Bell was stunned when she heard what came next: "She looked at us and she said, 'What has two thumbs and loves to masturbate? This girl!'

"My cousins and I did not know what to do... You gotta know your audience - it was not appropriate."
