The reason 18-year-old Courtney Stodden is really famous right now—aside from her DD chest and risqué style—is the fact that she’s married to 53-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. The two shocked the world when they tied the knot when he was 51 and she was only 16. Since making Stodden his wife, Hutchison has hardly ever left her side, but he’s being forced to loosen the reigns because Stodden has just signed on to participate in the U.K. edition of the reality series Celebrity Big Brother, and the producers have made it very clear that they don’t want Hutchison around. They reportedly want Stodden sans her older hubby because they feel like his celebrity status will overshadow Stodden.
Celebrity Big Brother is basically about a bunch of C-list celebrities who have to live under the same roof for about three months and are continuously being recorded on camera. There are weekly “evictions” and the last one standing takes home a cash prize.
This is the first time Stodden has traveled out of the U.S. and although she’s nervous about moving into the Big Brother house, she’s excited that she’ll actually be able to drink—the legal drinking age in the U.K. is 18, versus 21 in the U.S., where Stodden is still underage. This could spell disaster for Hutchison, since his young wife has never really had the chance to experience the party lifestyle. “As the legal drinking age is 21 in America, Courtney has never done the party scene or had the college lifestyle experience, so it will all be new to her,” a source told Daily Mail. In other words, she’ll be free to do whatever she wants.
With this new TV endeavor, Stodden will have to put her marriage on hold, including the sex therapy sessions she’s being doing with her husband. The celebrity couple recently revealed that they’re partaking in a program to improve one big problem with their sex life—she wants more of it because, as she puts it, she’s “young and horny.”
What do you think: Will Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden’s marriage survive her Big Brother stint?
