I know we've all seen multiple Bio's of Beth on pages but I wanted to post this because now I feel bad. I always thought Howard paid/pulled strings for her FHM shoots, media exposure, and future jobs, when in FACT, it was the public who I guess based on her top media movies, top modeling, and sitting in Howard's apt, voted her among the top 100 sexiest women of the year and broke her out of her "shy girl" shell. I kind of feel bad now, that this "simple" and "shy" woman was thrust into all this fame by the public. Boy, is my face red now for making fun of her. http://ngc-uat.nationalgeographic.com/wild/spoiled-rotten-pets/articles/about-beth-stern/ "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(Poor thing), 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."
