Two of H-Town's glamorous buxom blondes are making national news this week — one for a mega-closet, the other for a canine focus — and both for their charitable bent. 

Kristi Schiller is the latest to garner national ink with a feature in People magazine about K9s4COPS, the non-profit that she has ardently supported since founding it  in 2010. Schiller and her team are the subject of a two-page "Heroes Among Us" profile in the July 28 issue where this "wise-cracking Texan with a colorful past," as she is described, makes the case for supporting the non-profit.

The magazine reports that since its founding K9s4COPS has provided 60 dogs (minimum cost $10,000 each) to police agencies in 17 states.

This is not Schiller's first moment of national attention. Her team had one of the premier floats in the Rose Parade on New Year's Day, 2014, introducing the non-profit to millions of viewers.

On Sunday, Good Morning America jumped on the Theresa Roemer closet story that has made news this week with online and televised reports after CultureMap highlighted a piece about it on the Neiman-Marcus blog. The piece on Roemer's three-story, 3,000 square foot closet was the subject of the Pop Culture moment, nicely placed between news of Adame Levine's marriage and a video gone viral of a cowboy twerking for his young daughter.

Reporter Sarah Haines noted, "Forget the beer fridge, this place also has a champagne bar. Classy!" She added that Roemer entertains in the closet for charity fundraisers.
