reeva692PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA – A celebrity TV reality show featuring Reeva Steenkamp — the model allegedly murdered by Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius — is airing Saturday night (Feb. 16) in South Africa.

Pistorius, given the nickname ‘Blade Runner’ after he competed in last year’s Olympics on special carbon fiber blades attached to his legs, is accused of shooting Steenkamp repeatedly at his home.

Pistorius’s legs had been amputated below the knees when he was a toddler, because of a bone defect.

South Africa’s broadcasting company confirmed that the fifth series of ‘Tropika Island of Treasure’ will begin airing tonight as scheduled, and will include Steenkamp on the show.

The show’s executive producer said while there had been much deliberation about whether or not to include the beautiful model in the show, the decision was made to include her so that they could show her ‘light and laughter’ to those who did not know her.

Meanwhile Pistorius, the boyfriend accused in her killing, will appear at a bail hearing on Tuesday (Feb. 19).

    I heard this on the radio when the news story originally broke, the broadcaster literally said, "Oscar Pistorius, known for his amazing feats on the track…"

    Doesnt seem KTLA is losing people and doesnt have many people interested in their web page or comments to their news stories. People want the truth. Perhaps if KTLA told the news as it really happens like with the Chris Dorner case instead of the way law enforcment wants people to hear it people would be more interested. Just sayin'

    The guy clubbed her then shot her 4 times, stop talking about how great he is, he's just another killer who didn't deserve a girlfriend like her. "I thought she was an intruder". What a wimp and a coward and now a total loser. Too much, too soon=celebrity trash.
