I like to think there's hope for humanity, I really do. But in my line of work, I'll be honest -- some days, it's tough to keep that hope alive. This, my friends, is one of those days, thanks to Doug Hutchison's 19-year-old ex-wife, Courtney Stodden. The, um, aspiring model (?) has been a cause for concern ever since she stepped into the spotlight, marrying a (CREEPY CREEPY OH HOW CREEPY) man over 30 years her senior and undergoing extreme plastic surgery procedures before she was even done growing, but her recent appearance on Bethenny Frankel's new talk show might be her most worrisome move yet. On the one hand, Stodden says she's NOT considering a future in porn, despite some super lucrative offers, so that's good news ... on the other, larger, and more disturbing hand, she won't be writing a tell-all book either because apparently she "doesn't read or write."
I'm sorry, what was that, Courtney? Howzabout you come a little closer so I can slap you upside your illiterate, brainwashed head?!
And it gets even more outrageous. Because when Bethenny challenged Stodden's denial of any interest in the porn industry, Stodden defended herself thusly:
"I know people might think this is funny, but I actually feel that I am a true feminist because I believe in women looking the way they want to look. I think real women support women."
Okay, hang on one sec while I take a deeeep breath. Pheeeeeeeeew. Okay. I'm okay. Ahem. So, I guess we can forgive Stodden for not having the vaguest idea what a feminist is, since she DOESN'T READ (what's your excuse, Miley Cyrus?), but ... cripes!! How the hell did this child get to be 19 years old without learning anything about anything except breast implants, old men, and hair extensions??
I've got to say: It's not her fault. Sure, I'm an old lady, but to me? Stodden (Miley too, to some extent) is still a child, and the fact that she doesn't read or write or know anything about anything can be blamed on her parents. There's still time -- a lot of time -- for Stodden to come around, of course.
If only she could read a self-help book or two.
Are you surprised to learn that Courtney Stodden doesn't read or write?
