Courtney Stodden

Teen Bride Checks Into VH1's 'Couples Therapy'

EXCLUSIVE

0802_courtney-stodden_doug_getty
Here's a shocker ... 17-year-old Courtney Stodden believes there are MAJOR PROBLEMS with her marriage to 52-year-old "Lost" actor Doug Hutchison ... and now she hopes they can be solved on a VH1 reality show.

TMZ has learned ... Stodden -- who married Hutchison when she was 16 -- has signed on to the upcoming season of VH1's "Couples Therapy."

Sources connected to production tell us ... the couple has acknowledged there are "obvious problems in their relationship because of their age difference and the notoriety they've gotten because of their relationship."

Courtney and Doug -- along with 4 other couples -- will receive "intense counseling" throughout the course of the show ... which began taping a few days ago.

It really amazes me that we feed this beast by watching these shows, and that these people earn a ton of money for doing nothing. If you want to see this kind of stuff, just pay more attention to your family. I'm sure you can find the same thing and more somewhere in your family tree.
 
Ah, but that's reality, not entertainment.

Where do I start? First off, they both are already wanting to bang other people for obvious reason and they both should, so I give the marriage somewhere between 9 days and the time the taping for the show is over.. Second, this dude cannot work the hipster look much longer, it is painful for all of us to watch.. and three, Courtney needs to do us all a favor and hit the porn business running when she is 21 and milk it for all it's worth.. She is seventeen going on 40 and looks like she has been ridden hard and put away wet.. Other than that I am sure they are a very nice couple and I wish them the very best yada yada.. blah blah blah...

It's all part of the PR machine. These guys aren't having marital problems, but for a price they are having "problems".

Looking forward to the day we finally get some solid verification this chick is in her late 20s. Plenty of smoke out there about it.

How can there not be an issue between them? they are of different age groups that's a big issue there. she's young he's.. well no spring chicken . What makes this bad is that she's only 17 and she looks like shes in her mid twenties . Girl needs to live not settle .

They have been trying to get on TV for the longest. Nothing wrong with their marriage. IMO this is their latest scam to get on TV and it finally worked. Two morons.

Problems? He wants her home before 10PM on school nights, and she is tired of fetching his Viagra. What problems?
