The South African reality show featuring Oscar Pistorius' girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who was shot dead by the Paralympic and the Olympic star on Thursday, will air this weekend as planned, according to the show's creator.

Show's creator and executive producer Samantha Moon said in a statement Friday: "As we grieve today with Reeva's family and friends and struggle to make sense of this shocking tragedy, it has taken much deliberation to come to the decision to continue screening 'Tropika Island of Treasure 5' as planned."

Moon added: "Reeva was an intelligent, beautiful and amazing woman, and we feel it would be an injustice to keep that unknown from those who did not know her personally."

"Every episode that she is in, every frame that she so ably dominates-shines with her light and her laughter echoes in every conversation, and we want to share these special memories with the rest of South Africa," she further said in her statement.

Moon added the episode would be dedicated to Steenkamp's memory, adding a special tribute to the model will also air ahead of Saturday's show, CBS News reports.

Steenkamp died Thursday after being shot multiple times at Pistorius' house in a gated community in an eastern suburb of South Africa's capital, Pretoria. Pistorius, 26, has been charged with her murder. (ANI)
