Biography: Howard Stern's Beth Ostrosky
I've wondered who Beth O is and what she looks like because I hear about her on the radio all the time and so I went and looked her up. I even found a couple great pictures to link to, sorry not nude.

Childhood and Family:
"My two brothers were my biggest influences growing up. I adore them. They are my biggest support team." Beth Ostrosky.
In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Beth Ostrosky, nicknamed “Beth O,” was born on July 15, 1972. She has two brothers and her mother was a relatively accomplished model. Beth attended Fox Chapel High School before studying English Literature at the University of Pittsburgh.
Flirting with Disaster
"I had my first modeling job when I was 9 years old at a fashion show with my mom in Pittsburgh." Beth Ostrosky.
Initially wanting to be a high school English teacher, Beth Ostrosky turned her interest in modeling and had her first modeling job at age nine. Grown-up Ostrosky later relocated to New York for further modeling career. And after receiving a few low-key campaigns and shows, the tall blonde bombshell tried her luck in acting. She recalled: “I was modeling as a young girl and acting opportunities for TV commercials came my way. It wasn't (acting) until I moved to New York that I got my first movie audition.”
In 1996, Ostrosky landed on her first film role, as Jane, Ben Stiller's love interest in writer-director David O. Russell's comedic drama Flirting with Disaster (also starring Patricia Arquette, Téa Leoni, Mary Tyler Moore, George Segal, Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin). On working with Stiller, Ostrosky said: “He made my first movie experience so much fun. He's hilarious and sweet.”
She followed it up four years later with a more prominent role opposite Amanda Peet in writer-director Peter M. Cohen's romantic comedy Whipped (2000). During this time, she also resumed her modeling career with specialization in swimsuit spreads.
And since her first meeting with now-beau radio personality Howard Stern at a dinner party, Ostrosky has been known to call into the morning radio show from time to time. She also continued acting, Randy T. Dinzler's The End of the Bar (2002) and in Anthony Volastro's 15-minute drama film, Another Night (2003). On the small screen, she could be seen in a March 2003 episode of ABC sitcom "Less Than Perfect" and co-hosted Spike TV's "Casino Cinema" with Steve Schirripa in 2004.
2006 saw Ostrosky became a special correspondent on syndicated entertainment news program "Extra" and hosted the new season of G4's show "Filter." She also just completed filming Saturday Morning, a sci-fi romantic comedy written by Rob Greenberg.
As a model, Ostrosky, who has been one of FHM’s “Top 100 Sexiest Women of the Year” in 2005 and 2006, continued to appear in her own range of calendars as well as on the covers of several magazines.
