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.

Why is any attention given to this child molester?? I don't care which state or parent consented to this marraige, she is still a MINOR. And he's 52. That makes him a pedophile. STOP reporting on this animal.

Let's not forget that this girl is only 17. I feel sorry for her. I feel bad that she had parents who would allow a 50-something dirty old man to date their 15 -16 year old child and then marry her. Those people were her role models. I just know he is waiting for her to turn 18 so he can get her into porn. He will be her manager, she will be his little money-maker. I hope she wakes up sooner rather than later and gets out of this mess.

Did they really expect it work when he's old enough to be her grandfather. Well I can't blame him, that lucky jerk.

Congratulations on finally finding a reality show that will take you! What good is a fake marriage if no one pays attention?

This is a very immature girl who thinks, honestly, she is the hottest female on the planet. She posts sexualized bible quotes about the lord coming inside her daily, she goes to other FB pages and calls people lesbos, ugly whores, Chinks, etc, then removes them like they've not already been recorded. They have not been truthful about ANYTHING from day one. It might be hard to wade through, but you can see it at the facebook page Courtney Stodden Needs More Drugs! She calls others names, then whines SHE is being cyber-bullied. They're bothered by the 'notoriety' of their relationship? THEY HAVE PUT IT ON FULL PUBLIC BLAST SINCE THE BEGINNING!!!! Shut up, and there might not be 'notoriety'.

WHY?! Why does VH1 continue to encourage their delusion that they're anyone at all... or that anyone has ever or will ever care about them?

Of course they signed on. They were not getting any other offers so take what you can. Bet they make a sex tape when she turns 18 too.

The biggest problem in their relationship is that HE'S GAY. The second biggest problem is the fact that the entire thing was for media attention only. After trying to shop a reality show to everyone and being turned down, it looks like they're both finally getting what they wanted.
