Beth Ostrosky is an American-born model, actress and TV personality whose name became well known when she married famed radio-host, Howard Stern. The couple married in October 2008 in New York City. Beth and Howard are the proud pet parents of “Bianca,” an adorable, white-colored bulldog. As an actress, Beth received her most notable role in the Ben Stiller movie, “Flirting with Disaster” in which Beth played “Jane,” one of the daughters in the movie. She also went on to appear in the movie “Whipped” along side the film’s star, Amanda Peet.
While many people are familiar with Howard Stern’s highly entertaining yet highly controversial radio broadcasts, many may not know about web-column called, “Beth’s Thoughts.” The column can be found on the North Shore Animal League of America website.
In the column Beth talks about her training over the summer for the ING! NYC marathon, which will take place this November. Beth, along with her team, “Go Beth O!” which consists of a group of dedicated supporters and runners who have pledged contributions that will be donated directly to Beth’s favorite charity organization, NSAL.
“Together, we hope to raise $262,000 through sponsorships. All proceeds will benefit the Animal League’s life-saving mission to find “forever” homes for more than 20,000 orphaned animals each year,” says Beth.
Beth was also the host of Animal Planet’s, “World’s Ugliest Dog.” Despite the negative connotations with this name, Beth was truly inspired by some of the stories that came out of hosting this show. One of the stories was about a dog, “Archie” who, not only was a past winner of the competition, but also an ugly dog who was saved from being euthanized by a family who adopted him just in time. As was the case, Archie was going to be euthanized simply because he was ugly. This year’s winner was “Gus,” a three-legged, one-eyed dog who was suffering from cancer. Beth was touched by Gus’s family who was living and taking care of this dog.
“There are NO ugly dogs in my opinion!” Beth admits in her column. “It [World’s Ugliest Dog] will air on Animal Planet at the end of October. I loved how everyone came up to me and said how great it is that I help animals by representing North Shore Animal League America. I was so proud!! It is amazing how well-known the Animal League is all over the world.”
