He used to make films for students, and this was one of those he made for a class. Did Alison Berns accept his offer?

Alison Berns Married Life/Divorce
Alison Berns married her heartthrob Howard Stern on June 4, 1978. The college sweethearts, who were both just 24 years old at the time, were married in a small ceremony in the temple of Ohabei Shalom in Brookline, Massachusetts in the presence of family members and close friends. Temple Ohabei Shalom is the third oldest in New England and the oldest Jewish community in Massachusetts.
Their union can be considered very happy when judging by their public appearances, interviews and joint shows. It was a happy one. The couple worked together on several film projects, including Negligee and Underpants, U.S. Open Sores and Private Parts. The two were always totally in love with each other and it didn’t seem like the relationship was going to end. So their joy knew no bounds when they welcomed their first child, Emily Beth, in 1983. The couple had a total of three children. After Emily, Debra Jenifer was born in 1986, while Ashley Jade was born in 1993.
As months turned into years, Alsion began to feel alone and the relationship began to strain. Her husband, Howard Stern, had become very successful with his career as a TV and radio presenter, as his show ‘The Howard Stern Show’ had become famous. It gained an international fan base and brought him so much popularity. He concentrated too much on his work and put so much effort and time into keeping the rhythm while neglecting his family. In fact, his work became more important than his family and even his friends.
Stern moved out of the house into a 4000 square meter apartment in Manhattan after they decided to end their marriage in October 1999. In 2001, they finally ended their 23-year relationship through a divorce. However, Alison began dating David Scott Simon in the year of the divorce and would later marry him on November 23, 2001. They are still married and happy together with Alison, who works as a PR manager in David Simon’s company. Her current ex-husband Stern also dated Angie Everhart and later model and TV presenter Beth Ostrosky, whom he married in 2008.
