Joel Osteen's Wife On TV

What the hell is with all the GLARING LOOKS. It looks like she sees a SEMI- baring down on her, and she is caught in the headlights. I think maybe thats why Joel only lets her preach on Wednesdays. I was waiting for laserbeams to shoot out at anyminute. I am more concerned with the interviewer though, she ought to get a good lawyer and sue her plastic surgeon for that horrible lip job.

I was waiting to find out the most commonly misspelled word in the English language!

She's actually a really nice person, but I haven't talked to her since she married into the cult. Her mother owns Iloff's Jewlery on Post Oak. She has always been stunning beautiful and her mouth has always been that way. <shrug>

Not Mrs. Olsteen's mouth, the INTERVIEWER'S mouth, she looks like Lips Manlus from Dick Tracy.

My first thought is "trophy wife", such as a worldly, successful businessman might bag. I certainly don't know what is in her heart but she seems like a nice person, might even be serious about her spiritual progress in this life and might just be a bit shy and therefore a little overwhelmed by her role.

Some quotes that come to mind are; "Judge not, lest ye be judged", "In heaven there is no marriage" and, from Buddha, "Avoid marriage like a burning pit of hot coals", as I tend to believe that truly devout people avoid marriage and give their life to pursuit of divine love, not human love.

As for the interviewer, well, I've got to give them some credit for not going with the standard good looker for that job.

She is kind of odd. But I just wonder if it comes with the territory. Most TV preachers seem to be kind of kooky. And Joel's sister Lisa... she's just plain annoying. She can't say six words in a row without throwing in an "Amen."

But none of them are as bad as the freakshow on TBN. Now that's scary.

Not at all! She cracks me up though and I do think she's managed to redeem her image some after the whole PTL scandal.

I have a good friend in Dallas that dressed up in drag for Halloween as Jan Crouch, complete with large fake boobs, running mascara, and a huge purple wig. It was hilarious.

My favorite Victoria Osteen story, as told by her adoring husband, Joel:

"Especially controversial are leaders like Osteen and the flamboyant Creflo A. Dollar, pastor of World Changers Church International in College Park, Ga., who preach "the prosperity gospel." They endorse material wealth and tell followers that God wants them to be prosperous. In his book, Osteen talks about how his wife, Victoria, a striking blonde who dresses fashionably, wanted to buy a fancy house some years ago, before the money rolled in. He thought it wasn't possible. "But Victoria had more faith," he wrote. "She convinced me we could live in an elegant home...and several years later, it did come to pass."

Isn't that sweet!

What about the host of that show? I guess she is pregnat.
Lara Bell's baby is over 2 years old. It's probably an old interview.

I refer to her as "Miss Piggy". She does look like a live action Miss Piggy.

Kimberly: i just emailed a picture of that woman to my niece. Her soon to be prize winning cow is named Laura Bell...truth stranger than fiction.

[For my money, the cow is prettier-and half as frightening]

FWIW:

(12/19/05 - KTRK/HOUSTON) - A dispute that involved the wife of Houston's most famous pastor, Joel Osteen, and a Continental Airlines flight attendant ended up delaying a flight for hours Monday. And now, Victoria Osteen's actions on that flight are in the spotlight.

"She violently ran towards the cockpit, scaring everyone around her," said passenger Knicky Van Slyke. "Everyone was terrified about what was going on. And a bunch of flight attendants ran up and had to restrain her. She was banging on the door."

Don't know if it's part of the real story, or the Olsteen Spin Police putting out their version, but a friend sent me an article that said the altercation started over some spilled liquid on her seat that she asked a flight attendant to wipe up. The flight attendant claimed she cleaned it up but Victoria was apparently not satisfied.

The same article also hinted that the Olsteens had called the FBI and reported the flight attendant involved but the FBI declined to get involved.

There's definitely a good story here. Hopefully someone can find out what really happened.

Well that is the craziest thing I have heard from Mrs. Olsteen. I don't even know if the story is told right. Other than that, she is actually on my good list. For a television preacher, she and her husband seem pretty down to earth and are very real. They are hardly the critical judgemental evangelist type and to be honest, that is what I expect from some individuals of their status, but I have found nothing to complain about yet.

Wife of Joel Osteen Asked to Leave Plane By PAM EASTON, Associated Press Writer

HOUSTON - The wife of the pastor of the nation's largest church was asked to leave a plane after she failed to comply with a flight attendant's instructions, the FBI said Tuesday.

From the DMN:

No. 9 Texan of the Year:

Joel Osteen

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dw...1.1027a0be.html

Mr. Osteen's version of the faith eschews traditional Christianity, pitching an optimistic gospel of self-improvement. A popular TV figure, he stands apart from old-line televangelists by not appealing for money and avoiding hot-button issues. Though criticized for downplaying sin and repentance, and for a simplistic message to a self-involved flock, Mr. Osteen wins converts through plain-spokenness and relevance of his teachings. And whatever the theological complaints, no one has accused the pastor of financial or moral impropriety (and you can't blame him for his wife's diva-like behavior this week that got the Osteen family booted off a flight to Vail).

I heard that after the Osteens were booted off the plane, the chairman of Continental paid for a charter flight for them to Colorado. I could see it happen, because after all he certainly wouldn't want them to be late for the slopes, but it doesn't seem a great use of shareholder money.
