Say what you will about radio personality (a weak description, I know, but aren't you tired of the term "shock jock?") Howard Stern: These days, he's looking positively wholesome compared to his doppelganger, Anna Nicole Smith paramour Howard K. Stern.
Stern was in Miami over the weekend, having recently popped the question to his girlfriend of seven years, Beth Ostrosky. Stern and his model fiancee were photographed strolling along South Beach on Friday.
He has recently bemoaned the coincidence in name, mainly because there are a lot of people out there who think he is Smith's widower. He even called an AP reporter on-air two weeks ago to clear up the confusion.
