Here’s a hint: it has nothing to do with this woman’s job as a parent, and everything to do with stripper heels and God-given desires that Courtney just can’t suppress.
Also, Courtney’s mother allowed Doug Hutchison to marry her then-underage daughter because she knew that Doug Hutchison would be able to “handle” her daughter, and I don’t know if that means Courtney’s mother thought it’d be OK to push the child-rearing responsibilities onto someone who had a weird, sick attraction to a young girl who was barely out of puberty to lessen the load on her own shoulders, but that’s what happened there. Courtney’s mom needed a real man to handle her young daughter, and that’s just what she got.
Don’t be mistaken, though—Courtney was the one pursuing Doug, however, and according to her mother, whatever Courtney wants, Courtney gets. She also makes mention of the fact that the blossoming relationship was a “beautiful” thing to watch, and she has never regretted allowing the fifty-some year-old man to marry her daughter to this day.
Also, if you watch this video, you’ll hear it straight from the horse’s mouth that Doug is also a “fabulous man” who has enviable qualities, qualities that she, herself, would love to find in a man, and that’s coming directly from the mouth of a woman whose husband left her just weeks ago.
… Gee, I wonder why.
What a messed up bunch of birds, right?
