The Riches of Howard Stern’s Ex Wife
How rich is Alison Berns? As of early-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $20 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. She’s also gained a significant amount of wealth from her time with Howard Stern, who has a net worth of over $600 million. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Meeting Howard Stern
Alison was educated at Newton North High School, and after matriculating, attended Boston University. She would complete her studies there and then move on to Columbia University. During her time at Boston University, she met Howard Stern who was a film student at the time, and the two would work on a project together for Stern’s studies, entitled “Transcendental Meditation”. The two would grow close, and would eventually see a movie together, beginning their romance.
She would become Howard’s first and only girlfriend during college. He would help her to become noticed in the entertainment industry, as he also grew in popularity. The two later married in 1978 at the Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline, Massachusetts, in front of family and close friends. The couple would go on to have three children, and would stay married for more than two decades. Around this time, she started to get more acting opportunities which would help her net worth to increase.
Acting Work and Divorce
Alison would appear in a string of television projects during the 1980s and ‘90s; one of her first projects was entitled “Negligee and Underpants Party” released in 1988, and starring Howard Stern and numerous other personalities who appeared in the film as themselves. Around the same time, she became a part of “US Open Sores”, which was a Howard Stern event that took place in 1989 featuring Howard battling against his radio producer, Gary Dell’Abate. There were numerous other Howard Stern projects that Alison would become a part of over the next few years.
In 1997, she would be cast in the biographical comedy film entitled “Private Parts”, based on the book of the same name written by Howard Stern, which follows his life from childhood up to his success on radio. However, in 1999 the couple decided to end their relationship after more than 20 years of being together. Howard would later go on and state that he was consumed with work and had become a workaholic, as well as neurotic because of it. This caused a falling out in their relationship, and they would finalize the divorce in 2001 with a settlement that increased Alison’s wealth significantly.
After their divorce, both went on to live lives independent of one another. Just a few months after the separation, Alison would marry David Simon; not many details are available about him, except that he is the CEO of the shopping mall Simon Property Group. Howard would start to date model and television host Beth Ostrosky, and the two would marry in 2008. Despite moving on, the two still meet and get together when it comes to their children, and they’re still seen in pictures alongside their children. Alison managed to maintain the home that she was living in when she was married, while Howard moved to a 4,000 square foot apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
While Alison decided to live a life away from the spotlight, his husband continued his career. Media coverage of her lessened as her former husband started to move on to other projects in later years.
Is Alison Berns on Social Media?
Much like the wives or ex-wives of numerous media personalities, Alison maintains her privacy by not having any accounts with any of the major social media websites. However, there are videos available of her on YouTube depicting her younger years when she was still associated with Howard Stern.
In an interview, Howard later admitted that the separation and divorce of his first marriage was devastating to him, and even many years later, he still can’t figure out what went wrong. He also mentioned that his current marriage was definitely easier, but it also means that things can get complicated very easily. He mentioned that he was using women as a sort of surrogate mother, meaning that he would show very childish behavior in front of them.
