I know, I know. Hush, baby birds. It’s ok. I know that Thanksgiving was ruined when we learned that Courtney Stodden wouldn’t be stripping on Thanksgiving Eve. I know how bad that hurt. And the fact that we didn’t get an explanation hurt just as bad, didn’t it? I’m so sorry. I wish I could shield you from all the pain in the world, but I can’t.
However, I can finally give you an explanation for Courtney’s sudden cancellation. Or, well, a few explanations.
Here’s the short and sweet statement from the club itself:
“Her management approached the Abbey but ultimately she just wasn’t a fit.”
And here’s the explanation from Courtney’s mom:
“It was too much for the Abbey to handle, too much press and controversy. Courtney’s not disappointed. She rolls with the punches.”
And finally, here’s the statement from Courtney’s rep about the owners of the club, SBE:
“The reasons for the cancellation provided by SBE are a mystery to us and based on fear, in our opinion. It is most unfortunate that a venue such as the SBE-controlled Abbey needs to approve and censor performers that audiences want to see, and would not be able to control the crowds and paparazzi anxious to see Courtney’s show. Courtney Stodden has a huge gay fan base and truly loves and adores everyone in the community. At this time, Courtney is heartbroken and we are currently seeking alternate opportunities for Courtney to make her debut club performance in West Hollywood.”
So there you go. Courtney is either rolling with the punches or she’s heartbroken, but either way, a Courtney Stodden performance is going to happen. So get ready again, friends. Get them hopes up. Because when you’re Courtney Stodden, nothing can keep you down.
