Jen Arnold, star of TLC’s The Little Couple, has decided to let cameras document her battle with cancer.

The Texas-based neonatologist, 39, is undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy, for an unknown type of rare cancer. “Jen is a doctor and teacher, and she saw this as an opportunity to educate and possibly help through sharing her story,” a TLC spokesperson tells People.

She and husband Bill Klein recently adopted son Will, 3, and daughter Zoey, 2.

Home invasion

L.A. police are investigating the fatal home-invasion shooting of a director who worked on America’s Next Top Model. The Los Angeles Times reports 42-year-old James Howe died and his wife was seriously wounded in the Nov. 27 attack. Police say Howe and his wife answered the door for what they thought was a lone salesman, but instead, two men and a woman forced their way inside. The couple’s 6-year-old son wasn’t harmed.

    Mag: Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods’ ex wife are friends

    No bad blood here. Though Elin Nordegren is unlikely to befriend one of her ex-husband Tiger Woods’ conquests (even though we’re sure that Perkins waitress was/is a great human being), Us Weekly is reporting Nordegren has no issue with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. In fact, the two are friends. Not besties by a stretch, but after spending time doing parental things, the two have found they get along. A source tells the mag: “You'd think it would be weird, but ... they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
