As Courtney Stodden informed her Twitter followers on Monday, and her mom confirmed to Celebuzz today, everyone’s favorite teen bride is off shooting some kind of reality show at this very moment. “FYI Stoddenista’s: Will be m.i.a for about 3 weeks – packing up & heading out to shoot a reality show!” Courtney wrote.
Our first response to this news? We did a little Cat Daddy of our own in the office. (Sorry, no cameras were present.) Our second: that nauseating feeling you get when you fear that some TV exec will destroy the artistry of a natural-born talent. There are so many ways you could go with this, and all we know so far is that it’s not taking place in the Marina Del Ray home she shares with actor hubby Doug Hutchison. In the past, we’ve seen a lot of Courtney on camera, mostly via her YouTube channel, so let’s examine her past work and speculate about this magical show.
1. Newlyweds/T.I. and Tiny/Khloe and Lamar
Judging by our own interview with Courtney (above), her life with 51-year-old Doug is filled with cute moments in which they find out about their similarities and differences. Reality-TV is filled with hits and misses of this “Odd Couple” vein. Sometimes it’s more compelling than a sitcom. Sometimes it’s reaaally boring if not carefully scripted. Maybe that’s why it’s not in their home?

It’s taken a few months, America, but we may finally be accepting the fact that Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison are the real thing. I mean, why else would we see the 17-year-old aspiring starlet and her 51-year-old actor husband going to church and the mall together on Sunday? Not for the photo op, surely! Anyway, we here at TheFABlife had the chance to take a little peek into the everyday lives of this fascinating couple — not the Dr. Drew-style peek, either — when Courtney answered a few questions on camera.
First up, we wondered, with their age gap, do Courtney and Doug have the same taste in music, movies and TV shows? (Subtext: Is that, at least, like hanging out with someone’s dad?)
But Courtney said they do like some of the same things and have been introducing each other to new ones. “There’s fine lines in between what we share and what we teach each other,” she said enthusiastically. “I’ve turned him on to Maroon 5, Train and all the new awesome bands. And he’s turned me on to some of his music. We’re batting that back and forth and exploring each world.”
And like many a kid raised on Nick-at-Nite, Courtney knows her old-timey TV shows, like, erm, “I Love Lucy’s.”
“I love I Love Lucy’s, The Honeymooners, Green Acres. We love that kind of stuff,” she said. “But it’s so cute: Doug calls Maroon 5 ‘Monsoon 5.’ He’s like, ‘YEAH! Monsoon 5!’ It’s so embarrassing, but it’s darling too.”
