Beth and Howard Stern may have been surrounded by break-up claims recently, but the truth behind the rumours has finally been revealed.
Beth, 46, appears on Friday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, and she tells the talk-show host that the rumours are 100-per-cent untrue.
The host of Hallmark Channel’s “Kitten Bowl VI” insists: “The other day, someone comes up to me and they say, ‘I’m so sorry about what’s going on with you and Howard. I hope you make it.’ And I had no idea what was going on.”
She adds: “What happened was, that morning, I said to Howard, ‘You gotta stop walking around so grumpy this week. I mean, you’re really just Debbie Downer the past few days. Shape up. Come on. We love our life.’”
Beth continues, “And so he went on the air that morning and said, ‘Oh, my wife thinks that I’m so depressed. I hope she still loves me.’ That’s what I think he said because I don’t listen to the show.
“So next thing I know, you get these Google alerts. ‘Howard and Beth Stern Breaking Up,’ ‘Marital Problems,’ there’s the picture of us with that lightning bolt in between our heads. And I don’t know what’s going on! And then apparently, he spoke about us on the air. This was just last week. And then it just spread like wildfire!”
Beth adds that the pair, who tied the knot back in 2008, have had “20 years of marital bliss.”
She insists, “I’m setting the record straight right here. I love my Howard.”
