Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein, The Little Couple, Renew Wedding Vows!

Six years after they first walked down the aisle, Dr. Jennifer Arnold and Bill Klein of TLC’s The Little Couple renewed their wedding vows in a beach ceremony.

Their 2014 wedding took place on a beach in Galveston, Texas, surrounded by 50 family and friends on April 27, all planned out by Klein as a surprise for Arnold.

“It turned out great,” Klein says.

Dr. Jennifer Arnold, Bill Klein

“She was so surprised. It has been a crazy year, good and bad, and we came out unscathed. I really wanted to make it happen and do something special for Jen.”

The couple were hit with scary news last year when Arnold was diagnosed with a rare cancer and had to undergo intensive chemotherapy treatment.

All the while, they were adopting daughter Zoey, 2, from India. She joined son Will (who just celebrated his 4th birthday), at their home in Houston.

“Oh my goodness, I was very, very surprised,” Arnold, whose cancer is now in remission, says about the plans Klein had made for the ceremony.

“It was wonderful … more beautiful than I could believe. Being on the beach and having the kids there, it was definitely different this time around.”

Klein launched his plan by getting down on one knee and proposing again, and, the next day, she was shocked that he’d put together this ceremony.

“This time around it was about taking care of Jennifer,” Klein says. “Even though she found out about it last minute, she came up with better vows than I wrote.”

“Bill took me completely by surprise and it was in a good way,” Arnold says. “I don’t know how he got all of our family and friends there. It blew me away.”

The duo’s romantic vow renewal will, obvious, be featured in the season finale on June 17. Congratulations to The Little Couple on this very big news!

Future kings and queens, they’re just like us! Okay maybe not, but these two are royally wonderful, down to earth and nice people. There’s simply no denying it.

Steve Irwin Death: Cameraman Recalls Crocodile Hunter’s Final Words

Cameraman Justin Lyons, the sole witness to the tragic death of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin revealed the star’s final moments in a new interview this week.

“I’m dying,” was all the 44-year-old popular television host said after a surprise attack eight years ago by a massive stingray, Lyons told Studio Ten Sunday.

The two were in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in September 2006 to shoot a nature documentary when they found a “massive, 8-foot-wide stingray,” Lyons said.

Lyons, who worked with Irwin for 15 years, said they were “looking for something to do” when they went exploring around the water in an inflatable boat.

He told his friend to swim up behind the stingray and he would try to get a shot of the “normally very calm” animal. But the stingray did not remain calm.

“All of a sudden, it propped on its front and started stabbing wildly with its tail,” Lyons said, adding that it made “Hundreds of strikes in a few seconds.”

“I didn’t realize how serious it was. I didn’t know it punctured his heart. I thought maybe it just punctured his lung and we had a good chance of saving him.”

He pulled Irwin into a boat and tried to get him help. He did CPR on him for an hour but Irwin, who was bleeding profusely from his chest, could not be revived.

Lyons told Irwin to think of his children in that moment. “He just sort of calmly looked up at me and said, ‘I’m dying.’ And that was the last thing he said,” Lyons said.

When the medics finally came they pronounced him dead within 10 seconds of their arrival, Lyons said. He said he would never release the footage.

“Never,” he said. “Out of respect for his family, I would say never.”

Dwight Howard to Sign with Houston Rockets

Houston, you have a center.

According to multiple reports, Dwight Howard will sign a contract with the Houston Rockets in the coming days, putting an end to one of the more irritating free agent periods in recent memory.

Dwight Howard Wallpaper

Howard led the league in rebounding last season with the Lakers, but he never meshed well with Kobe Bryan or Coach Mike D’Antoni.

Still, Los Angeles placed a billboard outside its arena begging the big man to “Stay,” a plea that has seemingly fallen on ego-driven deaf ears.

While Howard is yet to make an official statement, all other teams in pursuit of the former top draft pick have allegedly been notified that he will not be signing with them, leaving Houston as his only destination.

On the Rockets, Howard will team with James Harden to form arguably the best one-two punch in basketball, with the squad possibly working on a deal to also bring Josh Smith to town.

We’ll confirm this news once Howard or his agent do so, but for now, the world awaits Kobe’s next Tweet…

Ana Trujillo, Houston News Anchor, Kills Boyfriend With Stiletto Heel

Ana Trujillo, a Houston TV host, has been charged with murdering her boyfriend by striking him more than 10 times in the face, head and neck with her stiletto heel.

She claims she acted in self-defense.

Ana Trujillo Image

Ana Trujillo, 44, was in a relationship with the late Alf Stefan Andersson, 59, a top researcher in women’s health issues at the University of Houston.

The background is very much unclear.

“We only have a dead man and a woman who confessed to doing it,” says Harris County, Texas, District Attorney spokeswoman, Sara Marie Kinney.

Trujillo hosted community access shows under the name Ana Fox. Lott J. Brooks, Trujillo’s attorney and former employer, says to withhold judgment.

Trujillo, he believes, suffered from battered women’s syndrome, and is a non-confrontational person who would not have instigated the fight.

“It doesn’t seem like something she would’ve done without provocation, without some sort of triggering mechanism,” Brooks tells People.

He adds, however, that he is still learning about the case and he doesn’t specifically know what Andersson may have done to Trujillo before she struck.

On the night of June 9, she and Andersson drank tequila at Bodega’s Taco Shop and he got angry over another man who offered to buy Trujillo a drink.

They then went to his 18th-floor condominium at around 2 a.m. and he got angry over her plans to visit her daughter from a previous relationship.

Trujillo called 911, led officers to the body and told them Andersson “was attacking her and grabbed her hair and neck,” according to a DA spokeswoman.

But officers observed no injuries on Trujillo.

Andersson, however, suffered “at least 10 very serious puncture wounds to the back of the skull, and to the head and neck,” says Kinney, all inflicted by a stiletto.

Investigators are trying to determine if Trujillo stomped Andersson with the shoe or held it and struck him as she claims.

Officials are unaware what kind of stiletto was used. The shoe is in evidence and can’t be examined by a prosecutor until after Trujillo enters a plea.

Trujillo is being held on $100,000 bail.

Houston Police Shut Down Kanye West Screening of "New Slaves"

Last week, Kanye West debuted his music video for “New Slaves” by projecting it across the fronts of buildings around the world.

But while Paris, Berlin and Chicago all agreed to be in on the rapper’s latest act, Houston apparently had a problem with whatever West had planned for Friday night at the Rothko Chapel.

Local reports confirm that authorities pulled up to that location – after West announced the gathering via Twitter hours before – and threatened to arrest all attendees for trespassing.

The crowd soon dispersed once it became clear that no video would be shown.

West’s new album, “Yeezus,” drops on June 18.

Will he dare mess with Texas in promotion of it? Stay tuned!

Sarah Tressler, Houston Chronicle Reporter, Fired For Moonlighting as Stripper



Sarah Tressler, a 30-year-old reporter who was fired by the Houston Chronicle because of her second job as a stripper, has filed a formal complaint against her former newspaper employer, alleging sex discrimination.

Tressler was working as a society and general assignment reporter for the Chronicle and writing an anonymous blog entitled “Diary of an Angry Stripper” when another paper, the Houston Press, revealed her part-time profession.

She said the major newspaper fired her “because of a claim that I did not disclose on my employment application that I worked as an exotic dancer.”

“I feel that women should not be denied other employment because they have worked as an exotic dancer,” said Tressler, in response to her dismissal.

Tressler has hired high-profile attorney Gloria Allred and filed a charge of gender discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Allred said Tressler was stripping as an independent contractor, not an employee, so she had no reason to list exotic dancing on her job application.

“Most exotic dancers are female, and therefore terminating an employee because they had previously been an exotic dancer would have an adverse impact on women, since it is a female dominated occupation,” Allred said.
