Howard Stern, Beth Ostrosky get hitched10.06.08

Howard Stern, the self-proclaimed King of All Media, has been married once before, but is Beth Ostrosky the Queen who will help him find his Happily Ever After?

That’s to be written, but the 54-year-old deejay and the 36-year-old model took the biggest step toward that goal with their wedding at Manhattan’s Le Cirque restaurant Friday night.

Stern proposed to Ostrosky on Valentine’s Day in 2007. It’s his second marriage, her first.

Officiating the ceremony was actor Mark Consuelos, the husband of Kelly Ripa, who also attended. The rest of the guest list wasn’t exactly the Wack Pack.

In addition to Stern show regulars, People magazine and Howard 100 News reported that the guest list included Bedford resident Chevy Chase (who reportedly delivered a raunchy roast), Larchmont native Joan Rivers, Sarah Lawrence College graduate Barbara Walters, Westchester real estate maven Donald Trump, Billy Joel and wife Katie Lee Joel, Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines, former Train lead singer Pat Monahan, John Stamos, Jillian Barberie, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman and former Senator Al D’Amato.

“I danced with Howard,” said Rivers, according to People. “The wedding was fabulous, everyone had a great, great time.”

The Piano Man sang two songs, Monahan sang another, and Maines and Barberie teamed up for yet another, according to reports.

In a report airing today on Howard 100 News, Barberie had a suspicion about Kimmel and Silverman, who earlier this year had a civil yet very public breakup: “I think they’re back,” she whispered today on her Los Angeles morning talk show.

With former rival Howard Stern, Rosie O’Donnell talks career, love life and 9/1106.03.08

Shock-jock Howard Stern, in part known for participating in celebrity feuds with personalities ranging from Elaine Boosler to Kathie Lee Gifford, continued his recent fence-mending trend this morning.

howard.jpgFollowing a volatile two-decade feud with Bedford resident Chevy Chase, the two buried the hatchet on-air last year. And this morning, Stern fans — possibly for the first time on the radio — heard the deejay who launched his pro career in Briarcliff Manor chatting it up with South Nyack resident Rosie O’Donnell.

Back in its hey-day, the throwdown got downright nasty, at times making O’Donnell’s feud with Westchester real estate maven Donald Trump look like rock-paper-scissors by comparison. On Stern’s show in 1998, the staff once estimated the size of O’Donnell’s noggin, filled what was deemed a comparable container with jellybeans and challenged visiting celebrities and listeners to guess the number. And O’Donnell always had some choice words about Stern whenever his more militant fans prank-called her self-titled talk show.

rosie.jpgIn recent years, however, Stern’s rants about Rosie subsided, particularly after he admitted on the air a year or two ago that they had a nice chat when bumping into each other at a restaurant.

Today, O’Donnell called from her home — presumably in South Nyack — to chat it up with Howard and the gang. The gripping interview, which lasted almost an hour, covered her career, her love life and her controversial theory about 9/11.

On quitting her own talk show: “I left because I could no longer enjoy it the way one should enjoy their work, and I was sort of paying someone else to raise my kids and (hated) not having time to live my life.”

On ‘The View’: O’Donnell said she respects her successor, Whoopi Goldberg, because of her ability to be real; remains friendly with Sarah Lawrence College grad Barbara Walters; but was never completely embraced by Joy Behar (for whom O’Donnell opened early in her career as a stand-up comedian). The liberal O’Donnell said she has only exchanged a few baby-related e-mails with conservative “View” cohost Elisabeth Hasselbeck since O’Donnell left the show. Then O’Donnell admitted that Hasselbeck was the most attractive woman on the show.

On her celebrity crushes: O’Donnell, a lesbian, said she really did have a crush on Tom Cruise and revealed that Matthew McConaughey also turned her on while slow-talking his way through a description on how to make beer-can chicken. She said her current celebrity crushes include Angelina Jolie, Angela Bassett, Penélope Cruz, Salma Hayek and Diane Lane. Not on that list, however, is Stern’s fiancée, Beth Ostrosky, whom O’Donnell complimented and described as a “too perfect … Barbie doll.”

On her love life: She said she was sexually abused as a child, lost her virginity when she was 21 to a man, and could count her number of sexual conquests on “two hands.” She added that rumors of a wild life as a single woman had been greatly exaggerated, adding, “I’m not even nude in the shower.”

After the break, find out O’Donnell’s take on Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, her current tour and her curiosity about the Twin Towers’ collapse. (more…)

Suburbarazzi voters don’t care who Howard Stern’s soul mate is03.12.07

One thing you can say about Suburbarazzi voters: They care about not caring.

When asked who Howard Stern’s true soul mate is, not only did a non-Suburbarazzi writer suggest the answer “Who cares?” but 34 additional people followed suit and voted the same way. Nearly a quarter of the 147 voters (registering 35 votes) felt compelled to make known their apathy, though it remains to be seen if the bulk of those people were part of Les Moonves’ legal team or Kathie Lee Gifford supporters.

The former Briarcliff Manor deejay’s fiancée, Beth Ostrosky, finished fifth in the voting with 7 percent (11 votes). Who finished ahead of her? Howard Stern, himself (22 percent; 32 votes), Stern show co-host Robin Quivers (19 percent; 28 votes) and first Stern wife Alison Berns (8 percent; 12 votes).

Here are the rest of the results, with producer Gary Dell’Abate and the enigmatic “Thanks! Good Photos!” at the bottom of the list with two votes and one vote, respectively.

Howard Stern pops the question02.14.07

And for once, it’s not about underwear.

The former Briarcliff Manor deejay proposed to his long-term girlfriend Beth Ostrosky last night at his Manhattan apartment, and she accepted. When he announced the news this morning at the start of his radio show, his crew immediately began busting the chops of the man who repeatedly swore off marriage and begged others not to marry after he and his first wife announced their divorce in 1999. Ostrosky called in to the show later in the morning, saying she has happy and “shocked” with the proposal.

He also once bet his long-time sidekick Robin Quivers $1 million that he would not marry again. Quivers has said she would not demand the payout if the marriage comes to fruition, but I’m sure she’ll mention the terms of the wager repeatedly until and after such a ceremony takes place.

No wedding date has been set, Stern and Ostrosky said.
