Mean Betty: Courtney Stodden Got Her Wish — She’s On TV!
Will Courtney still be thrilled to be in the limelight when all is revealed on VH1’s ‘Couples Therapy’ show?
Oh kittens! We all know Courtney Stodden, the teen bride who will do anything to become famous; abd guess what? She has finally gotten her wish to have her own TV show!… Actually, kittens, it’s not exactly her own show, Courtney and her geezer of a husband, Doug Hutchison, will have to share screen time and drama with Alex McCord, her hubby Simon Van Campen and a few other “celebrity” couples on VH1’s Couples Therapy.
Season one just ended. And no, no one in Meanie’s household even remembers hearing that the show, which stars Dr. Jenn Berman and Dr. Mike Dow as the beleaguered therapists, had aired. But VH1 is still going to go for the gusto with, one assumes, higher profile couples for season two.
By having Alex McCord and Simon Van Campen on the show, they have a built-in audience of rabid RHONY fans. This will (hopefully for VH1) translate into higher numbers and a bigger audience. No one can ever forget the vision of Simon in red leather pants on Real Housewives of New York City, can they? That sight has certainly been seared into Meanie’s brain! One wonders what ensembles he’ll wear for Couples Therapy. Since Courtney is also known for her outré gear, will she and Simon confer ahead of time so that their outfits won’t clash on camera?
The moment that Courtney, then age 16, married actor Doug Hutchison, then age 50, miraculously got a ton of TV time cooing about it, the bleached blonde has been doing anything to get in front of cameras, including making out in pumpkin patches, wearing heels and almost nothing else to for a morning run, and having her poor semi-hairless dog dyed pink.
While most newlywed couples would be slightly embarrassed about having to go to couples therapy so early into their marriage, Courtney and Doug (who, by the way, have been married for only 15 months), seem to be relatively gung-ho about the fact that they have already hit a rough patch and are on their way to see a shrink. Gee, kittens, could the problem be that there’s a 34 year age difference between the two of them? Could it be that this is Doug’s third marriage? Or that Courtney can’t understand words of more than two syllables? Could it be, kittens, that Courtney thought that the moment she married Doug and the cameras appeared, she’d, oh, maybe co-star in a movie filled with A-listers, but instead found herself reduced to producing a web series on You Tube where her most famous clip was of her complaining about her stripper shoes?
Courtney left a gleeful tweet on July 30, wherein she claimed she was filming a reality TV show for three weeks:
One wonders though how effective couples therapy would be if it’s only three weeks long? And if you’re vying for camera time more than advice, will your marriage last longer than your plastic shoes?
