Who is David Scott Simon?
David Scott Simon is allegedly an American businessman, but who is known to the public only for being the spouse of a former American actress, Alison Stern-Berns who is widely recognized for her on-camera acting career, including for her memorable appearance in the 1997 biographical drama movie “Private Parts”.
Despite common belief, Alison’s husband is often confused with David Scott Simon, a renowned American journalist and an author who is best known for being the host of the NPR’s Weekend Edition radio news magazine. On the contrary, he is not a celebrity at all, and there aren’t any relevant yet available details regarding his biography.
Alison Stern was born under the zodiac sign of Gemini on the 26th May 1954, in Massachusetts, USA, and is of American nationality and white ethnicity. After matriculating from Newton North High School in Massachusetts, she enrolled at Boston University, from which she graduated in 1976, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. She later continued her education at Columbia University in New York City, from which she obtained a degree in Social Works.
Apart from being recognized as an actress, she is probably best known for being the former spouse of a famous American media personality – producer, actor, author and photographer Howard Stern. Some of her most memorable on-camera appearances occurred in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when she made a streak of performances in Stern’s TV productions such as “The Howard Stern Show” and “Howard Stern” to name a few. Her one and only big screen appearance occurred in 1997, when she starred in the biographical drama movie about Howard Stern, entitled “Private Parts”.
Alison and Howard first met during studies at Boston University, when they worked together on a student movie – “Transcendental Meditation” – and soon afterwards began their relationship. As Stern stated in one of his interviews “Within a week after our relationship began, I knew I was going to marry her.” which occurred on the 4th June 1978 at Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline, Massachusetts. In the course of the next decade and a half, the couple welcomed three children together, all three daughters – Emily Beth born in 1983, Debra Jennifer born in 1986 and Ashley Jade born in 1993. However, after nearly 22 years of mutual life and marriage, in October 1999 the couple parted their ways. This whole ‘venture’ was finalized in 2001 when they ‘amicably divorced’.
Only a couple of months after divorcing Stern, Alison married David Scott Simon on the 23rd November 2001.
As it has already been mentioned above, there is a huge lack of information about Alison Stern-Berns’ husband David Scott Simon in the mass media, so it is impossible to estimate his wealth. However, it has been publicly acknowledged that, as of mid-2019, the total of Alison’s net worth is estimated to the impressive sum of $20 million, initially acquired through her career, but boosted significantly through her divorce from the abovementioned Howard Stern, whose wealth is currently estimated to be an imposing amount of $650 million.
