Courtney Stodden

Teen Bride Checks Into VH1's 'Couples Therapy'

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Well I definitely think she needs therapy, most likely for a personality disorder...

Sad! While most 17 year olds are applying to college and a few exceptional ones are making news by competing in the Olympics. She wants to be in the news for appearing on Couples Therapy with her pervy husband. So sad to be washed up at "17"!

I actually know this guy from long ago. He´s always had a thing for very young girlfriends --- and they have flocked to him, as Marlene would say, like moths to a flame.

I'm sorry....she's an idiot! I think they both are. But worse off, her parents should be ashamed of themselves. They allowed her to get embroiled in this. It's obvious to me, they were more interested in fame and the potential money that would come from it, then they were the welfare and physical and psychological well-being of their daughter. Of course, this could also be just another attempt for Courtney to extend her 15 minutes of fame too and their could be NOTHING wrong with their marriage....except of course, for the fact that they have a 34 year age difference and she is still a minor. I think the whole thing is outrageous!

17? This hardcore worn chick can't be 17, she looks at least in her late 30's, and she's married to this older guy? Eeeew, that's nasty. Anyone that watches their show is a loser like they are.

This is just the latest step in their ongoing self promotion. She couldn't get her own reality show so this is the next best thing for now. If it gets great ratings, they'll try to use them to get her own show. She also must be turning 18 soon and once she does, everyone will lose interest unless she starts posing nude.

Once she moves into nudity, all interest in her will fade away along with whatever mystery she has left to offer. At that point, she'll be just another bimbo among thousands.

I watched Courtney and the husband back on television when they announced they were getting married, she behaved like she was already a movie star, and Doug, the husband acted like some pervert, chasing after a 16 year old girl, not a woman-= by any means;, and he - old enough to be her father.

The big age difference between them, is a big problem in itself, and maybe the adultery commited, because of boredom, and arguments.

They both want to be attention seeking reality stars, airing their dirty laundry to the world.

Give the public a break already- Courtney and Doug-
