Has Courtney Stodden lost it? She posted a video as an alter ego mocking herself


Courtney Stodden has posted a video (above) in which she claims to be her own half sister, Courtland, and talks in a deep voice while trashing herself. She calls herself a “slut” and makes fun of her life. In the video Courtney is wearing a black bob wig, goth makeup, and torn fishnets, but of course her fake cleavage is on full display. It’s kind of disconcerting and makes me wonder if she’s going through an identity crisis or personality break/disorder. I can’t armchair diagnose her, but it’s hard not to notice how strange this all is. Here’s part of what she says:

[Courtney] is my [half] sister. She is a slut… At least I have half of my f’ing dignity left.

I’m from Washington State. I would never move to Hollywood to marry some old, washed up, D-List, saggy-balled actor.

It goes on, but I’ll spare you. If you have a high tolerance for bullsh*t you can always watch the video. In response, Courtney’s mom Krista told Radar the video is “funny because [Courtney] doesn’t take herself too seriously. She wanted to get dirty for fun. She’s more than just beautiful, she’s edgy.”

Of course Courtney’s mama pimp would say something like that. Her daughter has probably been telling her for years that she hates her life and Krista has been ignoring it and pushing her to live the life of infamy she never had.

So is Courtney mocking her haters? Does she feel trapped in the exploitative bizarro life her parents have created for her, hyper-sexualizing her at an early age and then passing her off to be the child bride of a creepy actor the same age as her dad? Or is she just messing with us to try and get us to pay attention to her and her lousy music?

Maybe the answer is a little from columns A, B and C. I mean it’s not like she’s seemed particularly sane and normal up to this point. This would look extreme coming from someone who didn’t get famous by getting married at 16 to a then 51 year-old dude. (Tooms!) But this is Courtney, you know. It may be a cry for help, but isn’t everything she does? As I’ve said before, I blame her mom. She’s only 18 at this point and she’s been famous (in certain circles) for 2 years. Do you think she’s ever called the shots in her own life?

Courtney is shown on 2-20 at an Oscar gifting suite. They let her into those? It’s the “Roger Neal Style Hollywood Beauty & Couture Suite.” Credit: WENN.com

    What does she do for a living?

  2. Rhea says:

    I’ll admit that I didn’t see this coming. I thought her idea of getting an attention would be another music video, putting more extra padding in her bra or matching a light up bra with her light up panties. :D

  3. Jag says:

    I like her better with a goth look. Didn’t watch the video, so can’t speak to the rest of it. I don’t think it’s anything more than a stunt, so no worries there, imo.

  4. Eleonor says:

    In this video I’ve seen her as a teenager, for the first time. It’s painful. I bet somewhere in her mind these thoughts are real, and at a certain point she’ll feel the need to break free from this situation.

    • lin234 says:

      I feel bad for her. I think some of things she said are things that have been weighing on her and she has no one else to talk to.

      I think her mom and Doug thought that they would become reality-famous for sure. They are to a certain point but the money has yet to roll in. She never finished school and with a mother like that, she really didn’t have a chance at a normal life.

      She’s really young and so she probably feels helpless – as in she doesn’t have a huge say when it comes to making decisions in her life.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I agree. Maybe this video is to be silly, or to show her “acting range” or something, but I’m sure there’s a significant element of fantasy in it for her where she really is the half-sister who isn’t any part of this nonsense.

      She looks really hot with black hair and dark lipstick. She should run away and chase being Courtland! #freeCourtney lol

    • littlestar says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing, that part of this has to be her REAL feelings. Especially the part where she makes a gagging sound when talking about being married to an old man. The look of disgust on her face seemed so real. I really do feel for this lost little girl – twisted parents and a husband who seems more like a pedophile than anything else. I hope this is just the beginning of her breaking free from all of that.

    • RosettaStoned says:

      It’s definitely not helping her case as an actor, but yep, I was reminded of being a teenager, bored at home when school was out, playing with my digital camera and making goofy videos/pictures. She seemed like such a kid in this video, it was funny in a really surreal way. Like, if Courtney was one of my friends and sent this video to me, I would laugh. But knowing it’s Courtney, I have to think “well Dough left her home alone and she got into Pee-paw’s pill cabinet!”

    • Dara says:

      My thoughts exactly Eleonor. This is by far the smartest she’s ever appeared.

  5. T.Fanty says:

    I’m on the slight sympathy path. She looks unhealthily skinny in that last pic.

    • Heylee says:

      I have sympathy too. And I was just thinking to myself, I know that she is 18 but damn, she is ridiculous skinny. I hope that she is eating. Despite everything, she is pretty and obviously has some talent and drive to perform… I hope that she is okay. I watched her on that VH1 show, it was hard not to once I started. She doesn’t really have a mean bone in her body but she has some serious issues with needing to be watched and paid attention to.

      • Joy says:

        I know it’s because I’m forever chubby but I envy her body. It may be too thin but man I would trade with her in a second! And I do feel like she’s been brainwashed by a horrific mother. My mother would have been finding a place to hide Doug’s body if he had hit on me at 16.

  6. aims says:

    Her mom maybe has surpassed Dina Lohan, as being the worst enabler on the planet. I have a question. Did she ever finish school? Or has she been programmed into thinking as long as you have your body, it doesn’t matter.

    • deehunny says:

      Of course worse than Dina Lohan. Is that even a legitimate question? Her mother let her marry a 51 yr old pedophile (not technically, but OK) while she was 16 for fame.

      At least Lohan dropped out of high school for her acting career (which existed at the time)

  7. dorothy says:

    Anything, I mean anything for attention. Sad. Her “career” has amounted to nothing.

  8. brin says:

    Can’t wait til she has a mohawk and becomes her half brother Curt.

  9. Beep says:

    She also put out another one in which she pretends to be “latina”. its totally racist.

  10. DetRiotGirl says:

    This isn’t the first time she’s done an alter ego video. Look up her “Courtina” video on YouTube. Maybe she thinks these of these videos as acting studies?

    *coughs quietly while trying not to laugh*

  11. ojulia123 says:

    This is the first video she’s done that had me laughing with her and not *at* her. Wonder how the husband feels at being called a saggy-balled, washed up, D-lister by his own wife!

  12. Annie says:

    I always get the feeling this girl is drugged.

  13. Sarcasmo says:

    I would argue that she’s never had it.

  14. Ellie66 says:

    She’s edgy…..bahahahaha! :D those shoes need to be burned and just how much padding does she stuff in her bra? She needs to wash her face and ditch the old “husband” and go back to school.

  15. Lynn says:

    I think this ( getting dressed up and doing little videos) shows how young she really is. She is board and looking for attention. Her mom approved of course just like when KS was 16 yrs on the Internet looking for daddy and found him. … And married him ?? Gross.

  16. Ellie66 says:

    I actually like her pants they are very cute they would look cute with flats. :)

  17. ladybert62 says:

    Mamma Mia! That outfit (actually both of them) are horrid – her body is so strange – big head, big boobs, tiny skinny arms and legs – she is grotesque!

  18. Cookie says:

    That is the strangest looking padded bra. It looks like she is wearing 3 bras on top of each other or something. The sad thing is that with regular hair and makeup she would be a pretty girl, but I would say the saddest thing is her completely insane mother and father for letting her marry this creeper.

  19. INeedANap says:

    This is actually a much better look and attitude for her. Here’s hoping she dumps her mom, her husband, and her stripper persona to start an all-girl metal band called Light Up Panty Killers.

  20. Mirna says:

    I said in another Courtney post that I felt bad for her and believed her parents talked her into marrying in a fame-grab. If her marriage was real, she would NEVER refer to her husband that way – even in jest or as an alter-ego. You don’t take the chance of wounding your husband that way. She is clearly calling out the charade. I hope that she finds herself and gets away, not just from Doug, but her parents. She’s not an ugly girl, but she is overdone and oversexualized.

    • Stuart Horsely says:

      Exactly. The description of her “husband” is quite accurate, right? Also, take a look at the pictures of them together. Even people with minimal knowledge of body language will realize that nothing about these two says “husband and wife,” “in love,” or “married.” It’s all about the camera; she’s NEVER looking at him, just the almighty camera or in some ridiculous contorted pose. I couldn’t stand to watch the entire video lest I vomit. I think most of us know now that the “marriage” isn’t real. I’d bet good money that they’ve never had sex and don’t even sleep together.

  21. PoliteTeaSipper says:

    I just feel very sorry for her and wish she had some nice mumsy-type woman to swoop in and rescue her.

  22. Fritzi Schnitzer says:

    Her brain is broken. Multiple personality disorders occur when a person tries to dissociate from trauma. She sounded pretty wasted(but I only made it thru 58 seconds). Also, I’ve never seen such an advanced stage of anorexia nervosa in someone that young before. She has serious issues.

    • Erin says:

      I agree that there is something broken about her mind for sure, I really can’t even imagine how fucked up she is having been raised in the environment she was raised in with the values her mother has. However, you’ve never seen such an advanced stage of AN before in an 18 yr old? sure she is skinny, and probably has disordered eating for sure, but I don’t know about calling her anorexic. I have a friend who is seriously anorexic, and the difference between the 2 is pretty extreme. Mainly this video makes me feel incredibly, incredibly sad for this girl. I wish her the self awareness to break free of this disgusting situation and her continued exploitation.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Dissociative Identity Disorder is not that common and the most severe dissociative disorder. I wouldn’t diagnose her with that based on videos she has made showing her playing with other personalities/personas.

      I do think she is broken inside. I think she has been pimped out (possibly literally AND figuratively) by her mother and eventually, she will rebel in a big way from this. When people defend celebrities who are 23-24 as “very young,” please think of this girl. SHE is very young and was very young when she got tossed into this incredibly unhealthy relationship with her now husband.

  23. Samigirl says:

    I just can’t with her anymore. In the beginning, I thought it was funny and a shtick. Now, it’s just sad.

    Edit: Remember in Men in Black when Vincent D’Onfrio’s body was taken over by the giant cockroach alien? That’s EXACTLY what she shoulds like!

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      I’m with you. I can’t quite believe she would say those things about her husband. I use the term loosely. No matter how disgusting these people are that has got to be so hurtful-you know she meant all those things.

      Is she actually self-aware enough to have this level of insight into her own life or is this a break from sanity? She doesn’t strike me as this self aware normally, you know? She bagged on her dog’s name, her husband, her being “rill”, so everything about herself. Scary.

      I wish these two people just never were. I need a bath after a Stodden story.

  24. AustinMJ says:

    Only made it through 5 seconds of this video – this girl makes my skin crawl.

  25. JL says:

    Wow;
    I think her mothers and husbands quest for fame just backfired.

    I think she’s figured out what a fool she’s being made out to be and how people really see her, I htink the girl is ashamed but has no one to help her out of this mess they’ve created.

    Could this “break” and self shaming be due to her starting in the porn industry. sometimes that brings guilt and shame. I haven’t heard she did porn yet, but it’s the obvious next step and you know mommy husdaddy are pushing it if it brings money.

  26. Mandy says:

    Ummm….I don’t even know what to say other than I hope she gets some serious professional help. AND get the hell away from her creepy ass “husband” and “parents”.

  27. Maritza says:

    She probably thinks the alter ego thing has worked for Beyonce and it might work for her. Anything for attention.

  28. Blue says:

    Awww I feel so sad for her.
    She is clearly struggling with all the shit going on in her life. She really has no idea who she is. Her parents (especially her mom) have really damaged this girl.

  29. fabgrrl says:

    I think she is supposed to be mocking her “haters”? Because we all know, goth girls are mean, pretentious and crude, because they are jealous of the blond Barbies who all the boys like. Right?

  30. Melanie says:

    I think this is the most creative way Courtney has tried to get attention so far. It’s not great or anything but it’s more impressive than just her photo ops of her dressing like a stripper. Although, I’ve got to say, you would think in video talking about what a slut she is she could at least cover up in it. I would pay money to see this girl in clothes that aren’t so form fitting and that covered 75-80 percent of her skin along with some shoes that aren’t stilettos.

  31. Jel says:

    She has to be on drugs. One is THAT bad of an “actor”. And the padded bra thing … Treacherous. Sweetie, go get some implants already.

  32. Madpoe says:

    The hardest looking 18 year old in America.
    And while I’m at it, don’t most teenagers have severe acne?

  33. Sugar says:

    the ril cout ney land has emerged. I made the unfortunate choice of viewing this late last night & lost a valuable minute of my time trying to figure out why I like C-land better?

  34. DreamyK says:

    Has she lost it? I’m not sure she even had it to begin with.

  35. Kait says:

    Does anyone else look at her and think “Oh that poor little girl”? Or just me?

    I really just want to tell her it’s okay to go find a real family, lose the implants and makeup and hooker clothes, and be a kid for a while. I have a feeling no one has ever told her that.

    • Inky says:

      I agree, it just seems so awful for her. It seems like she has been told what to do and she has just gone along with it because she is so young. Her mother is disgusting for pushing her into this, surely any responsible mother would want to stop their child looking like this at 18?

      I wonder if people are treating her as being older than she is, because she looks a lot older than 18.

    • Mirna says:

      I feel bad for her, too. At first, it was fun mocking her. But it isn’t fun anymore. This young lady has some real issues and her “parents” are too money/fame hungry to see it.

  36. Jessica says:

    Why did Courtney have all this plastic surgery done to her?????

    Did She and her mother think that once she landed in Hollywood, she would be making a ton of money or something?

    And I’m going to say it, Lindsay could run circles around this girl in the acting department.

    This video just makes her look utterly stupid and shows her age: 18.

    She seriously just needs to drop of the face of the earth.

  37. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    This is very sad like Octo moms kids – some adult needs to get her out of this situation – her eyes look haunted.

  38. my .02 says:

    So, is anyone in on a pool for her future addiction? I’m going with eating disorder and plastic surgery (the Hollywood usual for women).

    She is going to have a *horrible* time when she starts seeing aging symptoms. Her whole worth is based on her looks and being young. When she has to face the loss of them, it’s going to be a really big trauma for her.

    Her parents should be shot for creating and enabling such a monster. Ugh.

  39. Jackson says:

    I am not seeing “cry for help” at all here. “Cry for fame” is more like it. As others have said, I think it’s her attempt to showcase her ‘acting’ abilities and get attention….all without having to memorize a pesky script.

    • Susie Q says:

      I agree. I also think she knows exactly what she is doing and is doing it willingly. If she is upset about anything it’s that she sold her soul by marrying Doug and is sorry she did because fame is not coming as quickly (if it does at all) as she hoped and is stuck with the saggy balled old guy with none of the benefits she thought marrying him would bring her. She is an adult and could stop her mother pushing her if that’s what she really wanted.

      • MissKittyKay says:

        I agree with y’all. I think she WANTS us to think that she needs help. I watched Couples Therapy. I couldn’t help it! It sort of seemed like Doug just really wants someone to love. It doesn’t make marrying a 16 yr old right. She knows exactly what she is doing.

  40. yeahright says:

    I think she’s just making fun of herself and mentioning all the comments she probably reads about herself. Its just that she’s not funny and she’s a creep.

  41. KellyinSeattle says:

    She can actually speak? Anyway, she can laugh all the way to the bank because even though we all make fun of her, she’s collecting the cash…probably not a whole huge, gob lot, but enough to buy her Aziza makeup.

  42. Zorbitor says:

    “Judgement is not a gift” … Courtney Stodden

  43. bettyrose says:

    It’s really telling that she thinks the problem people have with her image is that she’s a “slut ” as opposed to an exploited child.

  44. whocares says:

    I think its her husband that talks her into doing all these ridiculous videos, telling her it will help get her famous but meanwhile its all to keep feeding his sick fantasies!

  45. soxfan says:

    Her mother, and I use that term so loosely that the letters are hanging off, is a vile, disgusting, pimp-nothing more, looking for money and fame at the expense of her daughter. Are they even mother and daughter? Is this girl even 18? Ugh-I weep for the future.

  46. Nicolette says:

    Has she lost? Like this is a new development.

  47. judyjudy says:

    The truest things are said in jest. Someone needs to help this poor girl.

  48. cheeve says:

    Scary that a goth look makes her look more fresh-faced and youthful than her every day look. I actually thought she looked pretty, although I did find the video unwatchable. This is also the most intelligent she has ever come across. Weird.

  49. Lauren says:

    ^this. She is clearly portraying symptoms of DID (dissociative identity disorder). He is her handler, NOT her husband. Remember back to Anna Nicole Smith and her bizarro videos/alter egos??? Courtney’s situation is scarily similar.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      ack – stuck capslock. Not sure what was wrong with my last comment.

      It’s not clear to me that she is displaying symptoms of DID. Without a professionally performed DDIS or SCID-D, it would be difficult to base a diagnosis on the videos of a wannabe actress displaying different personae.

  50. bea says:

    I can’t laugh at that.

    She seems wasted in the video. Obvsly not reading from a script, so she DOES mean what she’s saying – calling herself a “slut” the “dignity” comment, the “saggy balled D Lister”. It’s the rantings of a drunk/drugged person who is venting and telling the truth.

    It’s sad. Doug and her mom should rot in hell.

  51. Paige says:

    Am I going to hell for laughing all thru this “cry for help”?

  52. Snowpea says:

    A million years ago, I remember seeing a spread (no pun intended) Pam Anderson did for Brit mag The Face.

    Well in it they gave Pam a complete makeUNDER, straightened her hair, put her in these cute boxer shorts and hardly any makeup…

    …and everyone was saying, god why doesnt she do that all the time.

    Well, this chick is the same. She’d actually be in with half a chance if she cut off that dry hideous synthetic hair, put on a really cute pair of jeans and ballet flats (like someone else suggested) and go to casting calls looking FRESH instead of like an ol’ truck stop five dollar hooker…

  53. AcesHigh says:

    I kind of felt like I was watching some sort of porn towards the end because of the way she kept spreading her legs and showing her cleavage. Ew.
    I don’t think it’s a cry for help. She’s either trying to show the world her “acting” skills or she was just poking fun at herself and those around her. It’s not that uncommon.

  54. Lexi says:

    I watched the video after i read this article, it was stupid and sad, and made no sense, she is an attention whore, do it for attention is all

  55. Ginger says:

    Lord help me! I liked her video making fun of herself. I like her alter ego a lot better actually. I wish this girl could break free of her pimp Mom and her pedophile husband. She might actually have a shot in Hollywood is she did otherwise she’ll end up in porn. I just feel sorry for her when I see photos of her.She needs guidance and she certainly isn’t getting the right kind from her mother or husband “daddy”.

  56. Shelley says:

    She’s very pretty in the ‘before’ photos I’ve seen. She’s 18. It’s clearly time for her to walk away from the creepy asses surrounding her and decide what she wants. I don’t know to what extent she was a willing participant in all this or if it’s playing out the way she expected. But abused/exploited or not, it’s time to go. Those implants are bigger, and more distorted and painful looking, than her first set, and, plastered onto her child-like body, are especially disturbing. She’s so young. I watched this video with interest and hope it may be a sign she’s about to take her freedom back, and her life. She has no chance of a career in Hollywood while in this slimy situation, and would have a better chance at acting jobs (can she act?) if she gets out now.

  57. TalkyTina says:

    I would like to knock some damn sense into her disgusting mother.
    She reminds me a lot of my own and my first serious relationship was with an older man. And when I needed someone to rescue me the most…she acted like her mother.
    It wasn’t a good ending (to say the very least) and it still effects my life 11yrs later.
    I see some of the old me in her.
    Its scary and very sad.

  58. Racho says:

    this is the most ‘real’ I’ve ever seen this girl…how sad.

  59. K-rock says:

    She’s going for shock value as usual. Yawn.

  60. K28 says:

    She needs to get away from her sick parents and perverted husband!

    She wants to succeed and she is determined to (obviously)! These people around her do nothing for her! They exploited her and still do! It’s wrong! If she would get away from them and find a decent mentor, manager and stylist I bet she could be successful! ( Keep in mind most celebrities have all 3 )

    If she wants to sing, act, model, dance, etc, why shouldn’t she be able to? Follow your dreams and never give up, Right? She just needs guidance! Something she’s never had!

  61. Trashaddict says:

    What is with the giving birth pose? I can’t watch these out loud, even with the sound off it looks painful.

  62. muppet_barbershop says:

    Sounds comparatively healthy. She still does, after all, need to do adolescent things. Poor fool.

  63. em(original) says:

    She may or may not have DID, but you can’t argue that her behavior doesn’t lend to that possibility.

  64. Jane says:

    Lost it???? She never had it!

  65. Faye says:

    Personally I dont think she suffers from DID I think hes acting for attention which are two different things although shes created these characrters there obvious she is joking? Maybe or looking or attention. However I do think in the long run she will suffer from some form of mental illness and I do reckon she has been through some sort of sexual abouse (have you seen her creepy dad?). Nobody can say for certin with out a disgnoses from a prefessional doctor.

  66. Stuart Horsely says:

    Wanna try something to make it even scarier? Play it without the sound, lol, and watch all the movement and contortion; the girl can’t be still. Disturbing.

  67. Joette says:

    I feel bad for this girl. She was a child when she was allowed to marry her “husband” who really is just a filthy old man. She must be totally skeeved out by him. Her whole identity is wrapped up in being what she feels is sexy and that is all she has. Her mother should be ashamed of herself for letting her child become exploited.

  68. Adrien says:

    I would love to hang around with Courtland, she seems fun.
    Anyway, this video sounds like a plea for help.
