Bill Klein and Jennifer Arnold on 'The Little Couple'Bill Klein knows what it's like to be bullied. Klein, who stars with his wife Jennifer Arnold on 'The Little Couple' (Tuesdays, 10PM on TLC), both have dwarfism, and had a tough time as kids. On Tuesday's episode, the couple was asked to speak at an elementary school near their home in Houston about bullying.

Klein and Arnold planned how they were going to approach the talk, and Klein brought up some notes he found from his former family doctor. "I guess at this ripe young age of 11, I was having some issues that I did voice to him, and he documented it," he said. "It said, 'Billy is now 11-years-old. He has difficulty in dealing with his shortness of stature. He's being bullied in school.'"

At the school, Jennifer talked about not getting invited to parties and being left out because she was different. Bill then delivered the message. "You know, picking on somebody," he said, "you might see it as just a little bit of fun, but it can have a huge effect on us."
