Joel Osteen's wife removed from plane for creating disturbance

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. The Osteens run the largest church in the nation, so passengers on a Continental flight were shocked Monday when Mrs. Osteen was removed from that flight after a disturbance.

"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."

"Of the cockpit?" we asked.


Victoria Osteen claims it was a minor misunderstanding in a letter posted on the Lakewood website..

However, FBI Special Agent Luz Garcia has said that the Osteens were asked to leave the jetliner after "an altercation."

Garcia also said that Victoria Osteen "failed to comply" with instructions from a flight attendant.

The incident apparently stemmed from a spilled liquid on Osteen's seat in the first class section of the airplane.

OK, pre-Rapture jitters, millionairess temper tamtrum or she was afraid she'd melt my pretties?
