Howard Stern's wife Beth Stern made ET's Power Women of New York list for her work as a philanthropist and animal rights activist, and she opened up to ET's Rocsi Diaz about her passion for protecting animals.
Starting out as a model, Beth took an unconventional road for getting into the charitable work that she does now, but according to her it wasn't that much of a stretch.
"I've always been volunteering at animal shelters," said Beth. "I've always loved animals ... Now that I'm no longer modeling and I really don't have to make money, I'm able to spend my entire time working with animals."
Beth's hubby Howard admitted that he was surprised by his wife's distinction.
"I think the people who do the most are the ones who expect an honor like that the least," said Howard. "Beth just goes about doing her work."
Howard and Beth have been married for five years, and they told Rocsi that they treat their pets as kids. Their family album is a 2014 calendar, available now at animalleague.org
