Courtney Stodden, 22, is an reality television contestant, actress, model, recording artist and national spokesperson for PETA. Stodden first came to national media attention when she married the then 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison as a 16-year-old in 2011.
One year prior, Stodden began her entertainment career by competing in the Miss Teen Washington USA pageant before entering the modeling world. She is managed by Hutchison.
The couple appeared as cast members in the second season of the VH1 reality television series Couples Therapy, which premiered in October 2012. Stodden says the couple agreed to the show to resolve issues in their marriage that resulted from their age difference.
In August 2013, Stodden joined the twelfth season of the British version of Celebrity Big Brother, but was evicted on Day 21 just two days before the season finale. In May 2015, Vivid Entertainment released a solo sex tape created by Stodden. She stated that she would donate what she was paid to charity.
In January of this year, Stodden and Hutchison reportedly separated. However, they are still living together at this time.
