You may remember Stephanie as Miss Howard TV for the month of October on HowardTV, (Howard's on-demand uncensored channel on cable television), but really it feels like she's the 13th girl in 12 months that Stern-sidekick Artie Lange has fawned over. However with Stephanie, there was that special "paisan" connection. If you go to ASU, you've probably facebook stalked her. If you have HowardTV, you're well ahead of the game. She is also Miss August in the Pac-10 release of the Tempe12 swimsuit calendar. Mah'ron.

LAist: Where did you grow up?
Stephanie Petruso: I was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona.

So you are August in the Pac 10 Tempe12 calendar, representing ASU.
How is ASU? I heard it's a haven for beautiful women.

ASU is a good school so far, this is only my first semester big change from junior college, but I love it. As far as a "hot haven" for women goes... I wouldn't know I don't check the ladies out.

How did you get into the Tempe12 Calendar?
I knew one of the interns, him and I had a talk about it one night, and then a couple days later he called me into the office to meet David the owner, and the rest is history.

Were you a fan of Howard Stern before you were a Miss Howard TV girl?
I was, I used to watch his show on the E! Channel when they played it and also when broadcast radio played him as well in the mornings I would listen. The man is absolutely hilarious.

Who was the coolest guy on the Stern staff you met?
Howard of course!

Who gave you the douche-chills?
Umm, well nobody really gave me the douche chills, but Artie [Lange] did seem to really take a liking to me, which was sorta weird but flattering of course!

Did Artie's assistant Teddy mack on you?
No, not at all.

Did you give Artie your number?
Haha, I wasn't lucky enough to have Artie ask for my number.

When chicks say they like funny guys, isn't it true that a hot guy being mildly funny = really funny vs. an ugly guy being really funny = mildly hot?
Wow, haha, that's a good question... in my opinion guys that are funny make themselves more attractive only because there is more to them than just looks...sorry for all you hot guys out there, your looks will only get you so far in life before some chick realizes how big of a tool you really are, so I suggest getting a personality.
