Rest In Peace, Bianca Romijn Stamos-O’Connell

Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky Stern lost their beloved 10-year-old pet bulldog Bianca yesterday named partially after friends Rebecca, John and Jerry. They adopted her two years after they began dating, in 2002.

As a proud mother of two cats and one that I’m still not convinced is a feline (he may possibly be a small brown bulldog) and the former owner of two golden retrievers, I understand that losing your pets is one of the hardest things in life.

This is especially true for those of us who have chosen to not have children. Ostrosky, spokeswoman for North Shore Animal League, Tweeted“We lost our precious Bianca today. My sweet little girl, may you rest in peace. I love you forever.” 

Howard Retweeted the message from his wife and told fans, “Tough day today my friends. Thanks to all for all the kind messages. Give your dog a hug for me tonight.”

In February, the couple got matching “Bianca” tattoos on their arms.

  1. I’m not a Stern, Fan at all but I do think Beth, is sweet, and from what I know about him. He does love his Animals. Sad story. My condolences go out to them during this hard time!


  2. I’m no fan of Howard, but a death of an animal is a hard thing to go through. I’m sure it will be tough. You have to put things in perspective, an animal is an animal still. A loss of a family member is obviously harder but some people think of animals as people even though they still are animals.


      1. Lets be adult’s about this, shall we?
        I’m not a serial killer and don’t want to be portrayed as one here or on
        lifetime. I was just stating my opinion as well as mos others. Animal fanatics are the ones throwing paint on innocent people. Maybe it is time for people to focus


  3. I’m a huge stern fan, so this is a big loss for the Stern, extended family. We have heard so much about Bianca, I feel like I lost a piece of my family today also.
