We knew this day would come, but it’s still a shock–because August 29, 2014 marks the 20th birthday of Courtney Stodden. That means that there’ll be no more references to teen bride Courtney Stodden. At least, only if we’re looking back at when the 16-year-old beauty married 51-year-old character actor Doug Hutchison. In his defense, Doug Hutchison had just done some great work as a psycho in The Punisher: War Zone, and deserved something to make up for not getting an Oscar nomination. [photo via…]
Anyway, Courtney Stodden soon became a big name in the tabloids, and reality television couldn’t wait to embrace the flashy gal. Neither could we, but at least we had the common decency to wait a few years before indulging our own fantasies about the gal. The important thing is that Courtney did okay in life. She achieved her own kind of fame and released a pop song that wasn’t too bad. It was kind of a shame when Courtney and Doug broke up after some stabs at maintaining their marriage on television.
This past year has been busy for Courtney. We’ve chronicled her lesbian sunbathing and stripped-down promoting for PETA. And now we have Courtney turning 20 years old with an announcement that she’s decided to renew her wedding vows with Doug. That’s actually kind of a disappointment. Courtney’s girlfriend at the pool was really cute. Of course, Doug might have negotiated a meaningful way for that all to work out.
