The doorman's respect aside, I guarantee you one thing Beefus was doing during their dating days, pushing towards marriage, was "wistfully" mentioning to Howard what a nice ring "Beth Stern" had to it. She was also probably "accidentally" leaving notes in very conspicuous places, where she "practiced" writing her name as "Beth Stern". She probably put little hearts around it, and wrote "Howard & Beth Stern" a few times for good measure. And that's why Howard's so butthurt about it; it's irrefutable proof that he was played. Internet, your thoughts?
