Howard Stern 'devastated' by dog's death
Posted July 19, 2012
Go easy on Howard Stern. His beloved dog died this week.
The America's Got Talent judge's wife, Beth, broke the news on Twitter two days ago saying, "We lost our precious Bianca today. My sweet little girl, may you rest in peace. I love you forever." Beth called it the "saddest day of my life."
Bianca, 10, was an English bulldog. She was such a part of the family that Bianca participated in the couple's New York wedding in 2008. And Howard has Bianca's name tattooed on his arm. He echoed his wife's sentiments, writing, "Tough day today my friends. Thanks to all for all the kind messages. Give your dog a hug for me tonight."
Howard also shared the news with fans on his Sirius XM radio show. And last night, following AGT, he told Access Hollywood, "I didn't want to cry on the air, but I kind of did. I love my dog and that was really rough. I'm having a hard time with it and my wife is having an even harder time and we're both just devastated."
Despite the loss, Howard showed up for his AGT gig on Wednesday and kept it together, though he admits it was challenging.
"It was difficult," he said. "When I start talking about her and I think of specific things we would do together — just little rituals we would do — it gets me crazy that she's not with me.
"I walked upstairs today where she usually lies, like right in a certain spot and I was convinced I was going to see her," he added. "I really wanted to see her and she wasn't there and I lost it… it's tough."
