Joel Osteen’s Wife Being Sued

From the “How do we lose a reputation” file.‚  Oddly enough, her attorney is Rusty Hardin, of Roger Clemens fame.

A Continental Airlines flight attendant’s lawsuit against Victoria Osteen, wife of nationally known pastor and author Joel Osteen, was expected to go before a jury, attorneys said.

Sharon Brown alleges in a civil lawsuit that Victoria Osteen, co-pastor of Houston’s popular Lakewood Church, assaulted her during a Dec. 19, 2005 flight from Houston to Vail, Colo., by throwing her against an airplane bathroom door. She also alleges Osteen elbowed her in the left breast.

The Federal Aviation Administration fined Victoria Osteen $3,000 for interfering with a crew member during the flight.

Rusty Hardin, her attorney, adamantly denies the allegations.

“It’s absolutely insane,” Hardin said Wednesday in an online edition of the Houston Chronicle.
