Here’s an uncomfortable treat for you, Dr. Jenn Burman of “Couples Therapy” talked to Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison about their marriage on “Access Hollywood” yesterday. In case you had any doubts about the validity of this marriage going into this season of “Couples Therapy,” you can put those to bed.
These two are “organic” soul mates who live life to the fullest and their marriage is 100 percent real and endorsed (kind of) by Dr. Jenn Burman, their TV marriage therapist. The couples’ biggest therapeutic issue, according to Dr. Jenn, is not that Courtney sometimes calls Doug “Dad,” or that they are 34 years apart in age, or that Courtney’s brain and body hasn’t finished developing yet, or that Courtney doesn’t have any friends her age, it’s that Doug lost everything when he married her and now they are enmeshed.
I will refrain for being judgey, or discussing how dirty this interview made me feel, because Billy Bush does all the work for me. He used the word pedophile, not me. [Access Hollywood]
What do you do if you’re a D-list celebrity couple whose union is on the brink of collapse under the glare of the spotlight? Why, you agree to hash out your disagreements in the presence of other D-list celebrity couples also on the brink of collapse on VH1′s new show “Couples Therapy,” of course! Among the couples who have moved into the “Couples Therapy” house is Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison, married for just over a year, whose troubles have nothing to do with their 35-year age difference, but her insistence on dressing provocatively and reveling in the attention it brings them. Look, I know I have to suspend my disbelief for a show like this, because reality TV is never completely real, but I am just not buying Courtney and Doug’s strife. I mean, he willingly dresses up as pervy Santa Claus to her slutty Mrs. Claus in Christmas-themed photoshoots. Anyway, putting aside the fact that they each obviously need therapy for their own separate issues not couples therapy (because they shouldn’t be a couple, I mean, right?), I’m glad they’re on this show if only because I can’t get enough of Courtney Stodden. Sometimes I feel like if I just stare long and hard enough, I will understand her. Keep reading »
I’ll admit, I didn’t watch VH1′s first season of “Couples Therapy” but I will be watching this season, which premieres October 3rd, as Dr. Jenn Berman and a team of shrinks try to help celebrity couples with their marital issues. The D-list cast includes Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson (and possibly their new pup Dourtney?), former “Real Housewives Of New York City” cast members Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, reality star Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie and more. I’m dying to get inside those marriages. Just dying. Actually, I’m most excited for Alex and Simon. They’re relationship has been making me twitch for years. Bathing suits, fights and lots of crying! Yessss! This looks the kind of trashy TV I can’t resist. [ONTD]
One day after her 18th birthday, Courtney Stodden tweeted, “No to porn … yes to Playboy ;) xxx.” Only Playboy’s not making any offers according to TMZ. A “source” says she’s been rejected by the magazine because she’s too “enhanced” for an 18-year-old. I believe they are referring to that time she went on Dr. Drew’s show to prove her breasts were au natural and kind of, sort of, failed the sonogram.
Anyhow, according to Courtney’s Twitter feed, TMZ “got it wrong” and we should “stay tuned ;) xxx.” I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Courtney’s naked body will be gracing an upcoming issue of Playboy. [Celebitchy]
