It's definitely kind of fun to laugh at teen bride Courtney Stodden and all of her and 100-year-old husband Doug Hutchison's weirdness, but looks like there actually might be some seriously dark shit going on in the World of Stodden. Stuff that maybe we shouldn't laugh at. Stuff like she's totally addicted to prescription meds. Stuff like her mom is really the one who's in love with Doug. Stuff like she tries to hook up with other dudes when her husband is watching.
I know, right? Makes you feel a little icky about laughing at her (or writing about her!).
Nik Richie, one of Courtney and Doug's co-stars in the reality show Couple's Therapy, has made some disturbing allegations about Courtney and her family to The Huffington Post. And, actually, they're kind of believable. Here's what he had to say:
Courtney made sexual advances at me every time we were alone in the house. She didn't care -- she even did it in front of Doug and he was cool with it. It got so bad I had to have a meeting with producers to tell her to stop because I didn't want to go to jail.
I think their entire relationship in contrived. This is a desperate attempt by Courtney's mom to use Doug to fulfill a dream and or sexual fantasy she could never have. Courtney doesn't love Doug -- she is too young and too high on meds to even know what love is. I get the feeling she is hiding a lot of dark secrets. What child marries a creepy old man who courted her online and in email? That is 'Dateline' style.
High on meds? The mom's trying to fulfill a sick sexual fantasy? This stuff is strange with a capital S, but dude, if it's true, it definitely explains a lot.
I don't think in all my years of being alive I've ever seen a "celebrity" quite as odd as Courtney Stodden. Maybe Anna Nicole, but Courtney is just weird. Being high on something would definitely be somewhat of an explanation as to why she's so ... well, weird. And if that shit is true about her mother, well, that's just sick, and Courtney should get emancipated yesterday.
Courtney's mom fired back at Nik's allegations, saying: "He is just trying to get media through Courtney, because she is a media sensation. He cannot do it on his own, and yes, you can quote me."
That's kind of believable too, I guess. But I don't know, Nik's story does make you think there's a lot more than meets the eye.
What do you think in god's name is up with Courtney Stodden?
