Courtney Stodden at a fashion show with her mom: so disturbing?


Earlier this week, Courtney Stodden did a brief interview on the red carpet that kind of summed up her life. It was hilarious, and it suggests that she’s totally over her 53 year-old husband. She was asked by two little girl journalists “what was your big break?” and she scoffed “My big break was my 52 year-old husband. I don’t know if you’re familiar with my story. I was 16 years old when I married a 50 year-old man.” She put the emphasis on “fifteeee” like it was super old, and it seriously is. She may look like a washed-up 45 year-old stripper but she’s still just 18.

The last we saw Courtney she was mocking herself in a strange video in which she adopted an alter ego and claimed she was her own stepsister, Courtland. She expressed disdain for her life, calling herself a slut and saying “I’m from Washington State. I would never move to Hollywood to marry some old, washed up, D-List, saggy-balled actor.”

So here shes is at an LA Fashion show for a line called “Shekeharrahate’s Haute Couture” with her mom, who is clearly the mastermind behind her media career. It really bothers me how her mom is holding her while she’s sitting on her lap. This whole family is incredibly disturbing on many levels. Remember these photos with her dad?

Here’s the link to the website for this fashion line. All the dresses look like very tacky prom and wedding dresses, like something the chicks on “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” would wear.

Also, we do shut down comments that bring up conspiracy theories and link to ridiculous sites about it. It’s possible for a young girl to be abused and controlled by her family without it being some huge hollywood mind control conspiracy. But yeah, this is not a normal situation and this is not a girl who is able to make her own choices in life. She also does not look sober in any way.

Update: For everyone saying this woman is not 18 – I confirmed it about a year and a half ago after finding a Facebook source from her hometown. She’s well known there, and her age is accurate.

    That’s… that’s weird.

    • Bluebear says:

      I think it is just sad. I am sure that girl was molested as a young child, leading to her belief that she is worth nothing more than sex. Technically, she was molested by that pedophile she married!

      • Rachel says:

        Technically, he’s not a pedophile. A pedophile is someone who is attracted to prepubescent children. She very much had a woman’s body when he met her. So while this entire situation is still gross and disturbing in the extreme, not a pedophile.

      • hazeldazel says:

        Since her husband is super duper gay, I agree that he’s not a pedophile. Which is good for her? I guess?

        But yeah, if you’ve ever seen the pictures of the dad on his speed boat on Courtney’s laying on the deck next to him in a bikini and he’s grinning in a super pervy way. She looks 13? (Pre-stripper outfit days) And the first time I saw that photo I’m like, “Okay now I get it”. And then you hear about the mom BRAGGING about arab sheiks wanting to buy her daughter, and I just have soooo much pity for the girl. There’s just so much crap she must have gone through in her short life. These really are the Lohans 2.0

      • Mazunte says:

        Above all, I think she was molested by her own parents, who pimped her out and should be in jail for this atrocity.
        This girl is so, so sad. Those parents are monsters.

  2. dorothy says:

    Ewww, that’s just beyond creepy. I’ll be glad when both of them crawl back under the rock they came from.

  3. virginia5 says:

    This is really disturbing.. I still dont think she is only 18 :/

  4. marie says:

    that is awful.. her parents should be ashamed. (and I say that because her parents are the ones that started it by agreeing to let their daughter marry a pedophile) the whole thing is sad to watch.

    • lexy says:

      Not to distract from the idea but marrying Courtney does not mean he is a paedophile. It is called ephedophilia as she was 15/16 years old. Paedophilia is the sexual attraction of an adult to children generally under 11 years old, but always prepubescent.

      It is still disgusting of course. Those marriage laws should be altered… I.e. You can only get married if underage and with parental consent if your partner is around your age too? I dont know… A 5 year limit? Not the age of a potential grandparent.

      • marie says:

        hmm, I did not know that, learn something new everyday. thank you

      • myview says:

        We can argue about what we think a pedophile is but I do not think we would argue about what child abuse is. Her parents abused her by signing their permission for her to marry a 50 year old when she was 15. Her legal husband is a child molester for taking advantage of a child. I say legal husband because I do not see how else he fits the role. This is heart-wrenching, disgusting, so wrong and I cannot believe there is no one to help/save her. These are the years that are the foundation for her life. What chance does she have? I think the media also have to answer for their coverage of this since she was 15. It is sensationalizing abuse. Publishing half naked pictures of her at 15, 16 etc. is wrong whether she was legally married or not. It adds insult to injury. I find this incredibly sad.

      • INeedANap says:

        An ephebophile is a pedophile with a thesaurus and a desire to be accepted.

        The mental and psychological difference is staggering. Don’t sugarcoat it by being pedantic.

  5. Joanna says:

    oh my god… she looks horrible. wtf?

    • erika says:

      can we blame our soceity’s fix on ladies like kim kardashian? can you all see courtney inspired by KK? the lashes, long, long…long ass hair? the peace sign? the open mouth ‘ehhhh…..ohhhh…..ohh…ahhhh….’ orgasm like, pout, the skin tight sausage dress, the boobs, the posing..

      god, i could go on and on. it’s sick, sad, truly ugly in every sense and sad…and sad……sick.

      i don’t know if this is a cultural/evolutionairy STEP DOWN or has our society always been ingrained to objectify and non-humanize supposedly ‘beautiful’ and compelling women like this?

      is this what neo-litchic/cave man wanted at his very base level?

      i’m trying to figure this out…

  6. fabgrrl says:

    If you were to ask me to pick which of those two women is under 40 years old, it would not be Courtney.

  7. i'm french don't kill me says:

    maybe it’s an experiment

  8. Itsa Reallyme says:

    That child is completely obnoxious and hard to like but she’s obviously been abused. I hate to see when parents so obviously use their kids to profit for themselves.

    • Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

      I agree. I want to like her, I kind of want her to succeed. –but…..watching her on couples therapy and some of those videos she does, she’s just so affected and annoying– It’s not entertaining on any level.
      I really feel for her and that is rare for me as I hardly ever feel compassion for wannabees or “celebrities”. But this girl–18 years old and already her eyes are dead.

      • Hakura says:

        @Marie Antoinette jr. – I agree, about the eyes. It’s the look you’d associate with someone that is (or was) a prostitute/drug addict/alcoholic for years. =( Like Lindsay Lohan.

        I honestly don’t feel like she EVER wanted to marry this disgusting man (I mean, who the f-ck would?), but that she was sold for profit (either literally ‘sold’ into marriage (for immediate profit to her parents), or used (by her parents & creepo) hoping to somehow ‘strike it big’ with the story.

      • Hakura says:

        @Marie Antoinette Jr. – Sorry, forgot to add – When you mention that you want to like her, for her to succeed, in a way… That’s exactly how I feel too… I’m always torn, because:

        A.) She’s obviously not a great singer or dancer (or whatever the F-ck she called her moves in the ‘music-video’ she did).

        But the issue that tears me most:
        B.) If she becomes successful as a result of any of this sh*t, so do her ‘handlers‘ (The 2 unworthy of the title ‘parents’), & the pervo)…

  9. littlestar says:

    I truly feel sorry for this girl. Just looking at her makes me sad. To be hyper sexualized at just 16 years old by her own PARENTS, and then basically sold to a 50 year old pedophile… Courtney Stodden has deep psychological issues and she needs help. Her family won’t help her. Her husband won’t help her. They feed off of her – she’s their “gravy train”. In 5 years time I bet she’ll be living in poverty and squalor somewhere. Makes me so sad. Thank gahd for my parents who made me work my ass off when I was a teenager. As my mom tells me now, “I feel bad for working you kids so hard when you were younger, but I didn’t want my kids to turn into drug addicts!” Lol. Too bad Courtney’s parents weren’t more like mine.

    • lurker says:

      Yup. CPS should have been called in when they let her marry the creep, although there’s no doubt the sexualizing started much, much earlier. My heart breaks for this kid. She didn’t have a chance.

      • Stuart Horsely says:

        What kind of doctor would perform a boob job on a 16 year-old, for starters? What sort of mother would allow it?

      • WendyNerd says:

        Stuart:

        My family used to hang around a family that was totally rich and, as it turned out, totally fucked up. The mother got the daughter breast implants for a graduation present. And yes, the mother and daughter are bleached blonde/tanned beyond belief. The daughter doesn’t look too different from Courtney and the mother looks like Dina Lohan. They have money so they dress and are styled better, but still in that gaudy, valley-girl, nipped and tucked neuveau-riche way. Anyways, the daughter recently had to have a kidney removed (at the age of twenty-three) because of her use of coke and ecstasy and has been arrested at least once. It’s so awful because she was so gorgeous before her mother paid for her surgery and she started tanning like nuts. She was just a drop-dead beautiful girl and now she just looks like everyone else. So yeah. Shit like this to me really gets under my skin.

      • Stuart Horsely says:

        Exactly, WendyNerd, short on brains, this “family.”

  10. Lakemom says:

    Another candidate for the Mother Of The Year Award…stiff competition this year between her and Dina Lohan.

  11. yeahright says:

    Do you ever think some quasi-celebs are just acting? Like this one and Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt etc.

    Its like people figured out they could be celebs without doing anything… like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian but at the same time they took themselves very seriously.

    But then you got ones like this one… its like they figured out you could make money by doing nothing so long as you broadcasted your ridiculousness and thats what you were known for.

  12. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Just….yucky and scary.

  13. guilty pleasures says:

    She had a ‘big break?’ Really?
    To my thinking, a big break would have been being left alone to grow up a normal teenager with friends and family.
    I agree with the predictions of poverty and squalor in her future.
    Sad. Unlikeable creatures all.

  14. Buckwild says:

    I wonder if she’ll make a break for it? Her recent comments make me think she’s no longer willing to go along with the plan so easily. But who would intervene for her, since her parents and her husband are all in on it?

    • Polk8dot says:

      @ ‘I wonder is she’ll make a break for it..’

      Yeah, she will – pretty soon, too, judging by her latest PR moves.
      I commented above that I believe this is all a stunt put on by a woman at least a decade older, who found this to be the easiest way to achieve fame-whoredom in Hollywood.
      I’m expecting the charade to be over shortly, and she’ll move into Stage 2 of her ‘performance-life’. There will be a ‘break-away from the cult-like lifestyle’. There will be ‘self discovery’. There will be media assault like we’ve never seen before. She’ll probably drag that out for another 2 years.
      Then comes Stage 3 – TRULLY cashing in on her ‘sex-capades’. There will be books, movie rights, etc. There will be ‘protecting other innocents’ campaign. There will be spilling of the ‘deepest heart secrets’; cries for help and understanding; begging for forgiveness; and finally blaming all of us for the attention.
      Stage 4, after about another 5 years, will start with complete shedding of this ‘persona’, dumping the fake foam boobs, ripping out the ratty extensions, going back to her natural hair and skin coloring, throwing away all the skanky attire. Basically becoming a completely different person, who acts and looks nothing like the fame whore of yore.
      All of this while laughing all the way to the bank.
      All this will happen, as it has always been a part of her pre-planned, staged ‘life in bondage and modern sex-slavery’.

      What that will do for the plight of real kids in real tragic circumstances is the only sad thing here.

    • WendyNerd says:

      I actually think Courtney’s Mom is worse. I mean, at least Dina had Lindsay pursue a somewhat respectable looking career path that kept her in age-appropriate roles when she was a kid/teenager and encouraged some manner of ambition beyond just being as much of a sex object as possible and posing for Playboy.

      Don’t get me wrong, Dina is disgusting, but when Lindsay was Courtney’s age, she wasn’t nearly as disgusting as Courtney’s Mom is now. Lindsay at least had some time as a fresh-faced, innocent teen star and managed not to go full skank until she was legally an adult. And to be fair, we haven’t seen Ali on a stripper pole yet.

      I can’t believe I’m actually defending Dinah Lohan. It really says a lot, doesn’t it?

  15. hayley says:

    I hope she gets away, and when she does, she goes far and fast. I honestly feel nothing but sorry for her. it’s obvious that her parents see her as nothing more than a profit. at least with her Courtland video and that other interview she gave, you can tell she still has a little bit of her own mind left and she could leave if she wanted to. I hope she does.

  16. LittleDeadGirl says:

    To be fair if I had her life I’d need to be drunk through most of it too

  17. Grace says:

    This girl is being abused. She’s over 18 but she definitely needs help. If she makes any money at all that isn’t taken by her parents or pedo hubby she needs to take it, change her name and appearance, and never look back.

  18. Joy says:

    I think this girl has the potential to be really pretty but she’s just tragic. Also have you ever watched her on camera? She totally makes coke face all the time. Her parents should be horse whipped and her husband is a pervert. That’s about the long and short of it.

    • Jill says:

      I saw one picture of her without all that makeup and straight hair. She looked beautiful and angelic. She was still dressed like a hooker though. she kind of looked like a prettier Christina Aguilera.

      • PortlandJan says:

        I recall seeing those same pictures, on another thread on this site. Under all that crud she’s wearing she actually has very fine features and that, rather than her current “look” should have been played up. I can’t even muster up my usual level of snark, as this poor girl has been royally screwed by both her family and her husband, and she lacks the education of self-awareness to see it for herself. Hope she does snap out of it, heads for the horizon and tells her present handlers to all go play in traffic.

  19. oliveo says:

    A short answer to the question asked by the post’s title: YES. I would be relieved if it were announced that Courtney Stodden is really a robot or a 40 year old actress playing a part.

  20. NeNe says:

    I think that her parents need to be locked up for promoting and supporting this kind of behavior. I do not feel bad or sad for Courtney, because she is loving every second of her 15 minutes of fame. In fact, I think she’s getting off on it, as evidenced to me by her appearance on Couples Therapy. I guess her big inspiration for fame is Kim K. You know from one trampy wh*re to the next!!

  21. Isa says:

    Is this a new thing? Ombré tan? Start off light at the top and get darker as you get to the feet?

  22. Jennifer says:

    Her parents are twisted. Her dad gives off a major perv vibe, her mom is nothing more than a pimp. And her husband. EW. Just ew.

  23. Style Spy says:

    I like how she matched her underwear and her lipstick …

    *SMH*

  24. ramona says:

    Very classy how she’s showing off her red knickers. What grace!

  25. JudyK says:

    I don’t understand how this “porn wannabe” is even worth a headline.

    Gawd, she’s pathetic.

  26. scarlett says:

    This whole situation is a complete shit show. Her parents are perverted vultures and her so called husband? Porn and drugs are in this girl’s future. She will be doing porn in a couple of years.

  27. Listerino says:

    She’s pretty much the second coming of Anna Nicole

  28. Wicked says:

    My goodness…just 18! Tragic!

  29. Susie Q says:

    Does anybody really think that she isn’t in on this with her family? Do you think if her mom was really exploiting her she would do it out in the open like these pics seem to suggest? This is all part of the master plan to make people talk about her (apparently it’s working) and to try and make this nobody famous…

    • Lulu.T.O. says:

      Sadly, I don’t think so.

    • Margie says:

      FINALLY! Thank you, Suzie Q!
      I don’t disagree for a second that she has been abused or that it continues in ways she just can’t wrap her head around yet. But this girl is no dummy. She manipulated an out-of-work, has been actor (who is just as at fault, if not more) into thinking she loved him and they could get famous. Supposedly, her mom knew this the whole time and helped her do it. She is VERY in control of herself, but now supposedly addicted to booze. She helped seal a lucrative deal with Coleman-Rayner, and much, much more. Victim? Yes. And now a willing participant in that abuse.

  30. VickyPollard says:

    I want to burn her whole shoe collection. They are ugly, and girl is heading for back/knee problems in a few years (assuming she really is 18 :P )

  31. diva says:

    Wow 18?!?! She looks at least 40. She is a mix of Anna Nicole, Lindsay Lohan, and Pam Anderson. She looks a mess and its obvious her mom is a mess too. Creepy and sad

    • Polk8dot says:

      I always considered Pam Anderson and Anna Nicole as the epitomes of no-class, hyper-sexualized, talentless nobodies. I never imagined that they would some day become ‘still better than…’.
      Alas, the bar has been lowered, actually more like burried in the ground, with this skank’s appearance on the media’s radar.

      Unbelievable that there is someone/something out there that managed to make Pam and Anna Nicole seem classy in comparison.

      *** SMFH ***

  32. Lexi says:

    Very very very disturbing, i feel sorry for her, its sad that she doesnt know how disturbing it is

  33. Sassy says:

    Ick. Her parents are deplorable. Her husband is a pedophile.

    And why is she super pasty in the face and neck and then she continues to get more orange? Very bizarre look.

    This whole situation makes me want to shower and scrub off the disgust!

  34. Joanna says:

    she’s wearing blue contacts, too. is anything about this girl real?

  35. K-rock says:

    What kind of drugs could she be doing? Or is it booze? She handles those sky high hooker pumps quite well, I can’t imagine being high and walking around in those things lol I’d be kissing the pavement!

  36. KellyinSeattle says:

    Her husband is beyond creepy. Her mom looks pretty good but she’s a terrible person.

  37. elceibeno says:

    I find it hard to believe she is only 18 years old. What is she going to look like when she is 30?

  38. Dee Cee says:

    Watching way too much TV, movies envying those people who work for the entertainment industry.. became inspiration, like a child wants to a Disney princess until she grows up and.. Courtney too desires to be well known as a specific celebrity character.. Right now she seems to be living in a shape shifting mental state by existing in a Cosplay world as this sexy girl ‘Jessica Rabbit’ type character portrayal. A living cartoon clown is her failure.. success at becoming this character she likes is pretty much her goal in life and .. never mind how stupid that is to desire, she will try anything with her lack of imagination to appeal.. look she now has a dark side too.. and don’t laugh at the lack of talent, she might have to become dark and scary sometimes.. she’s persistent.. it’s her life, her world.. only dream..

  39. dorothy says:

    What I wonder is, where was child protective services with this girl? I know she’s legal now, but wasn’t when she was pimped into this sex siren act.

  40. JL says:

    Disturbing doesn’t even begin to touch what that family is….

  41. Lemony says:

    I blame her parents & I feel sorry for her. I work w/ victims of sexual abuse & I believe something of that nature occured in her past & her parents have exploited her. I hope she can get help somewhere down the road.

  42. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Something is seriously wrong with this mother. What mother wants this for her child? Yet this woman not only actively defends and supports her daughter’s marriage and behaviour, but encourages it! Something is just wrong with that woman and I feel sorry for this girl. She’s a child being used by everyone, and thinks it’ll make her a star.

  43. Ojulia123 says:

    Her skin color. It is ombré. How trendtastic.

  44. Ginger says:

    I find it disturbing how over sexualized this girl is at just 18. The video she did as her alter ego was strange but had a least a bit of humor. It made me think that is what she might really be like behind this weird stripper persona. It’s obvious that her parents and her husband exploit this poor girl.

  45. Asdfg says:

    Why does barely legal Courtney get crap and the barely legal playboy bunnies get praised?

    How is Courtney’s situation any different from the playboy bunnies situation?

    Hmm…. Either way, both situations are truly disturbing!

      • Asdfg says:

        That’s true, Courtney’s well known compared to most of the playboy bunnies!

        A lot of playboy bunnies hooked up with Hugh Hefner at the age of 18 ( That we know of) yet people just roll their eyes and look past it like it’s no big deal!

        It’s sad how people shame Courtney yet they couldn’t careless about the girls who sex up Hugh Hefner or that Hugh Hefner is sexing up teens/tweens!

    • Asdfg says:

      So, wearing sexy clothes and make up is a sign of abuse now?

      To all the people who are saying the way she acts/dresses/ is a sign of abuse, y’all need to get out more! There are millions of promiscuous teens/tweens that dress sexy and wear heavy makeup!

      I’m not saying Courtney wasn’t exploited and pushed into marriage, because I know she was! I’m just saying she should be able to dress however she wants without people shaming her!

      It’s not like Courtney’s the only person in the world who wants to be and feel sexy!

      • Lemony says:

        @asdfg: I get out plenty, & I don’t feel that the way she dresses necessarily indicates that she’s been abused, I think the way she’s spoken about sex, men, her marriage, & the way her parents have spoken about the those same things indicates that she’s been abused. Her behavior & her parents’ behavior is what I am most concerned about. Obviously I never met her, so I’m just speculating. But as I mentioned above, I have some experience w/ victims of sexual abuse & her (perceived) behavior is a red flag to me. Not her fault if she was. Also, in my opinion, there is a difference between dressing sexy & dressing like a sex toy. It’s perfectly normal for a woman to dress sexy/flirty/feminine/etc when she wants to…it’s an entirely different thing to dress like an object that exits soley for someone to have sex with.

  46. vvvoid says:

    I do believe this girl is a victim of sexual abuse. It’s really sad.

    • Asdfg says:

      Just wondering, what makes you think she’s been sexually abused?

      • WendyNerd says:

        She calls her husband “Dad” and talks to him in a manner of a young child talking to their father. That certainly helps.

        There’s her absolute desperation and determination to dress like a stripper. And I don’t mean the fact that she dresses sexy. I mean her absolute refusal to dress in any other way no matter what the circumstances. For instance, she did this video where she keeps complaining about her foot/ankle hurting and refused to take off her stripper heels anyways. And the thing is, we NEVER see her dressed in any other way. Even women who love to dress revealingly and love attention (Kim Kardashian, for example) still every so often head out in a pair of jeans. Not Courtney. Even in the middle of December she will walk around in her bikini outside.

        She has no other pursuits beyond putting on a sex kitten act. Even stars who have been sold on their sexuality don’t constantly try to pout all the time and make bedroom eyes all the time. Everything Courtney does revolves around putting out a hyper-sexual image, and she never lets up.

        Those are the behaviors of someone who believes their only worth is through their sexuality and a pathological need to be hyper-sexual at all times is a major symptom of abuse.

        We never see her with kids her own age, just her creepy parents and husband. She has been isolated from members of her age group for a long time, even before she married Doug. Abusers often do whatever they can to isolate their victims from others and keep them from creating friendships and relationships with their peers.

        She takes pictures with her Dad spanking her in public and is happy to do it.

        She’s also insanely young to be thrusted into the spotlight like this, and was insanely young to be married to anyone, let alone a man in his fifties. Sorry but such an intense need for attention to the point of doing something like that is another major sign of abuse. Many abuse victims either become obsessed with getting attention or obsessed with being in control all the time. This is especially true of sexual abuse survivors.

        And sorry letting your sixteen year old marry a fifty year old isn’t the behavior of functional, nurturing, and loving parents. Even if they were “in love”, a good parent would never let something like that happen.

        So yeah, every sign points to abuse.

      • vvvoid says:

        Wendy said it. Definitely.

        Also her dissociative tendencies. I don’t think it’s just drugs that make her seem out of it, I feel like she’s been traumatized.

        I’m no prude, and I am not constitutionally opposed to the idea of parents letting their children marry at 16. It’s not just Doug’s age that bothers me, it’s Courtney’s nature. This isn’t just fun and games the way her family/husband try to make it seem, all the stripper outfits, inappropriate behavior, obvious breast implants…
        It’s disturbing.
        If she was already behaving this way at 16 and being married off to a 50 year old man…just imagine hitting rewind, what were they “letting” [making] her do when she was 10?
        I hope one day she breaks away from this and exposes her parents and ”husband” for what they truly are.

      • Nina W says:

        Also how many 18 year olds do you see lining up to marry a man old enough to be their father?

  47. MelissaH says:

    This is truly heartbreaking. It’s sad that this girl is being exploited and her parents aren’t the only ones to blame. Anyone who snaps a picture of her, writes an article about her or comments on an article (including myself) are to blame. Her parents exploit her for money and we’re more than happy to comply. I feel sick to my stomach and my heart is breaking after looking at these pictures. That could’ve been me, I was just lucky enough to have been born to a better mother.

  48. snappyfish says:

    my eyes need a silkwood shower.

    i agree that she seems “slow” or something. her parents and her husband are all very creepy indeed.

  49. Shelley says:

    Here’s my perspective, for what it’s worth, from some time I spent with a raging headache, unable to read and therefore googling to find out who this young woman is. I now think she knew and knows exactly what she’s doing. While all this may backfire on whatever deeper goal she may have, the reality right now is that if she hadnt married this obscure, although well-thought of, actor, we literally wouldn’t have a clue who she is.

    I wil bet she’s been hyper-ambitious from a very young age; maybe she was on the pageant circuit a la Jon Benet, or otherwise involved with activities that brought out the worst in her and her mom. I haven’t read anything about her earlier years, other than seeing a photo of her with her two older sisters.

    She was almost 17 when she married Doug, so he’s hardly a pedophile – which is a repulsive term and should be reserved for the repulsive people who earn it. He may be gay, although he was married twice before. He may genuinely like or even love her, or may simply be in on it for an agreed upon share of her/their earnings.

    At his age, he may well understand that 15 minutes of fame may still make you a lot of money. I’m not sure if she, at her age, can understand that as well as he can – but she may. She, in a way, has nothing to lose – in 2 years, she’ll be just. 20 and has many years to do, learn, and go whatever and wherever she wishes.

    If he does have regard or affection for her, and she leaves him, he’ll be a year closer to 60 every year they’re together. She may be like stars of the past who pushed their way into Hollywood very young, by lying about their ages and never turning down a job, eg, Ann Miller – and many of these women had extremely pushy, horrendously callous mothers.

    Courtney, however, either has no talent – or is hiding it very well. Her hair is suddenly white, he makeup suddenly completely grotesque. I don’t understand what the thoughts are of whoever’s strategy this us. The novelty of their union is due to her youth, yet her handlers aren’t letting her look or act young, seeking small, decent acting jobs for her, helping her to make a really good single song and a solid, well-done video for it – it’s like they’re all possessed by the spirit of KMart. If this is her own idea of how to establish her career as anything other than a literal flash in the pan, I believe this is her biggest mistake. Right now, this gameplan is leading her nowhere – which would mean all her ambition and drive, all her time, trouble, and bleach will all have been for naught. Then again, she may know her own limitations, be thrilled that she’s gotten the attention she has, and be laughing at us for our speculations and concerns all the way to the bank.

      Yes, this. I do not believer that any legitimate “handlers” or managers want to touch this situation with a ten-foot-pole. It is a PR disaster waiting to happen. I think she is styling herself with possibly some input from Doug. Her mother looks horrified to me, but pretending not to, like there is someone pointing a gun at her just outside of the frame.

    Just because you can have children, doesn’t mean you should.

  51. Mew says:

    Hey, why not call him rapist, scitzhofrenic, alcoholig, drug user and space man at the same time, just because he’s married to her, because that makes just as much sense as calling him pedophile…

    Who knows, maybe she likes to pimp herself. Maybe she’s the one who wants to put on the act. Do you think Coco was used when she was a child, pimped and Ice T being a pedophile now?

    We can’t know what’s the truth. Maybe she’s a victim. Maybe she thinks she’s a smart little playa making money the easy way. It wouldn’t been the first young woman on this planet who think they can make easy living looking like a sexdoll.

  52. WendyNerd says:

    My question is, are they really profiting that much? I mean, they get attention, but as people like Blowhan prove infamy =/= fortune. Since marrying Courtney, Doug’s hardly worked at all according to his IMDB page and he’s said his agent dropped him. Courtney doesn’t have legit record deal or done any acting work (releasing songs online yourself and one online commercial for a credit website don’t count), they couldn’t even get their own reality show, and not only did her video look hideously cheap, but the quality of her styling has gone down the tubes (and that’s saying something as she’s always had really awful styling). Her extensions/hair styling has gotten a gazillian times messier/cheaper, her make-up looks like the stuff I bought from Claire’s when I was eight (how much do you want to bet her lip gloss is cherry flavore?d) and I’m pretty sure almost everything she wears is some form of polyester/nylon blend. We don’t see them dressing well, or actually working. Just drawing attention to themselves. Every sign points to them only earning attention, rather than money or career status.

    So really, how much are they profiting? After a while, whatever money they have will dry up and people will finally get bored of them. Then it’s probably the poor house a la Spencer and Heidi (though they at least were the stars of a hit reality shows rather than just one-season wonders).

    So, where’s the actual profit? Because all they’ve accomplished is being the current star attraction of the jackass/creepy freak show. And if they don’t actually make any money, it’s going to get truly hideous fast.

    I’m not saying this to be mean. I really feel sorry for her. She’s obviously the victim of a bunch of loathsome fame-whores and their poorly thought out scheme to become “stars”. I just really don’t want to have to hear about this girl shooting her first porno in a year. But it seriously looks like it’s coming to that because there is no sign that they’re making a good enough income to keep themselves out of the poorhouse and reject what’s offered to them for long.

    But I could be wrong. Maybe they really are making money. Anyone know?

  53. paranormalgirl says:

    This breaks my heart. SHE breaks my heart. Clearly, she is married to an ephebophile. Clearly, she has been hypersexualised from a young age. There is no way she doesn’t have stuff going on inside her that can/will tear her psyche apart. She is in such dire need of intensive therapy. If I lived in CA, I would offer to treat this girl free of charge for as long as she needed it.

  54. dcypher1 says:

    Whats with the dark tan legs and ghostly pale face it looks weird. Shes half white on top and tan on the bottom just like crackie I knew she reminded me of someone lilo and dilo.

  55. Lady Satan says:

    This really is sad now. The girl looks the same age as her mother in that photo!

    She obviously is regretting her decision to marry Mr. Saggy Balls. What a shame she was (and is still) pimped out by her family who obviously just want her to bring in the money any way she can.

    I hope she has at least one good, true friend who can help her out of the mess she is in and get her the help she needs.

    She is actually looking rougher than Lohan in those photos, and if that’s not a cry for help I don’t know what is.

  56. Chrissy says:

    Why would two little girls being interviewing her? That’s even more disturbing. I would also like to say I don’t think you should be censoring peoples’ comments unless they get nasty and abusive to others.

  57. Noinin says:

    She is high and really, really unhealthily skinny. She needs help ASAP. As for her husband, I don’t think he is a predator. From what I saw he seemed to be head over heels with her. In couple therapy the shrink emphasized that he was vulnerable, she implicitly said that he would have never set his eyes on a 16 years old if the parents hadn’t pushed him to do so. I really dislike the way Courtney behaves, and her Chipmunk voice, but I really hope someone helps her. It’s a wild world for a 19 years old.

  58. Nicolette says:

    I don’t know what’s more tacky/disturbing/annoying, her cheap extensions, her red panties showing when she’s sitting (classy) or her Mom creeping me out by the way she’s holding her. And as dycpher1 stated above, what’s with the dark tanned legs and pale face? Doesn’t make sense but nothing about her does.

  59. At his age, he may well understand that 15 minutes of fame may still make you a lot of money. I’m not sure if she, at her age, can understand that as well as he can – but she may. She, in a way, has nothing to lose – in 2 years, she’ll be just. 20 and has many years to do, learn, and go whatever and wherever she wishes.

  60. Jeffrey Swanke says:

    There’s no “conspiracy” at work with this weirdo, she’s simply mentally ill.

  61. JRenee says:

    This is so wrong on so many levels. This is not going to end well…the parents are despicable!

  62. Nina W says:

    Is she wearing a tablecloth?

  63. myview says:

    Here is what the conversation would have been between myself,my 15 year old and this 50 year old male.
    Courtney: Mom can I talk to you?
    Me: Yes. You can talk to me about anything. However, first get your butt upstairs and wash all that excessive crap off your face. Next, go to your room and put some clothes on. If I ever see you dressed like this again, you will be without a phone and computer for a very long time.
    Courtney: But mom there is a man on his way over here to ask…
    Me: I said I would speak to you when you put some clothes on. Do you want people looking at you and thinking you are a tramp?
    Man: (rings door bell) I am here to tell you that your daughter and I need you to sign this form so we can be married.
    Me: (blink blink) If you are actually serious I suggest you get in your car before I attack you. If you ever get within 100 miles of my daughter again I will have you arrested. And when you do get out of jail I will hunt you down and cut your balls off. Now get out!

  64. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Very many of us are seriously disturbed by what we see happening to this young woman, but what can be done to save her? Who cares for her enough to give up what they can make from her? Doesn’t need a crystal ball to predict a young, messy ending. Can’t someone help her?

  65. Simple Red says:

    IDK what to think of her…
    It’s sad how her teen life choices were made.
    It’s like a spin cycle

  66. overit says:

    Two comments:

    1. anyone think that even though she’s making a “smiling” expression, she looks like she’s crying inside?
    2. she reminds me a little bit of Christina Aguilera after she became an alcoholic…I think she’s self-”medicating” with alcohol or something to get through this.

    This girl breaks my heart. I wonder who she could have been if not this…

  67. Memphis says:

    This family is just on a whole other level of disturbing. It’s obvious some major sh!t happened to Courtney, and it’s obvious her parents don’t give a damn.

    I don’t think her life story will be a long one.

  68. ViloDeMenus says:

    She’s one of those girls who want fame, no matter who or how they have to suck up to and no matter what, this is her fame. She’s got a long damn life to be a nobody, who was famous for marrying an old man. Sad tale.
