Published
Pennsylvania native Beth Ostrosky was born in July 1972. Her mother was a relatively accomplished model, and ushered Beth into fashion shows when she was only 9 years old.  Beth moved to New York at 19 and was soon sent to Europe, where she spent 4 years doing European catalogues and magazines in Germany, Paris, Milan, South Africa, and Spain.  Upon returning to New York, she continued her work in catalogues and national commercials.  Although she has appeared in a few movies, she does not consider herself an actress.

Beth's simple, successful life and career would soon be turned upside down after one very special dinner party.  Though neither was supposed to attend, Beth hit it off with Howard Stern at a New York City restaurant in 2000.  While he was accustomed to the media hype, Beth was unprepared for all the attention she received.  She remained in the background for some time, deflecting questions or avoiding the paparazzi altogether.  Finally, after FHM readers ranked her among the Top 100 Sexiest Women of the Year, she decided to emerge from her shell and did a cover shoot for the magazine.  Beth and Howard were married in October 2008, and she now goes by Beth Ostrosky Stern.

Since her relationship with Howard Stern went public, Beth has become a household name.  She regularly graces magazine covers and continues to work as a TV host and correspondent, most recently as the host of the hit HGTV series “Mom Caves” and a new special “Posh Pets” coming to HGTV this summer. Beth will also host National Geographic’s upcoming “Spoiled Rotten Pets.” She’s been a guest on David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Regis & Kelly , Rachael Ray, Ellen, Nate Berkus and the Today Show.  She’s been featured on the ABC series True Beauty and served as a mentor on America’s Next Top Model.  Beth uses her spot in the public eye to educate the public about animal rescue as the national spokesperson for The Northshore Animal League America, the world's largest no-kill animal shelter.  Her New York Times Bestselling book, Oh My Dog: How to Choose, Train, Groom, Nurture, Feed, and Care for Your New Best Friend, was released in May 2010.

Hi Beth,  Just wondering if you have heard of Yappy Hour Vineyards dog wine!  It's fantastic.  I just received a bottle as a gift and I want to send one to every dog lover I know.  I'm going to send a copy of this to Yappy Hour, and maybe you could have them on your show?  It's the most unique dog lover gift I've ever seen.  Check them out at www.YappyHourVineyards.com


Thanks, Michelle

Hello Beth,

I love your show. Seeing animals being loved and wanted so much makes my heart so happy. I am an artist and love animals so much, it's reflected in my work...  I design luxury pet beds that express my love for dogs and cats and who knows maybe other pets can get some sleep on them too???lol.

Hello,  I live in NY with my very SPOILED 2yr old, 2.7 lb Chihuahua.  Her name is YumYum.  She has her own facebook page, Twitter and Instagram Account.  All under the name ChiYumYum.  We are going to 2 fabulous events in June.  One is a Doggie Disco Birthday Party and the other is "Puppy Prom".  We think you will love these events as they surely will show how over-the-top we love to go for our loving furbabies.  There will be crazy disco costumes, flashing lights and music and extravagant Prom Gowns.  If you are interested in either of these for your show, please feel free to contact me.

Beth-While I appreciate that you and Howard are animal advocates; I just have to think, really?!  The pampered lives that these animals lead is crazy and my pets are my kids s we have no childre either.  But my God, the xtravagence is over the top!  What these people could do with the money they spend on pigs and such, they could be doing so much more with rescuing and neutering stray animals in their area.  Just want to maybe rethink you advocacy.  Sincerely, Shwlly Hakanson
