Last month, I told you guys that my very favorite couple, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison, were looking for a producer so they could get their very own reality show underway. And finally, on this most glorious day of days, we finally have the official word that this show is a go! Rejoice!
The 17-year-old and her Green Mile actor husband Doug Hutchison have signed a deal with Roy Bank, the president of Merv Griffin Entertainment.
“We are so excited to be working with Roy Bank, a great professional in this business,” Courtney and Doug exclusively told Radaronline.com.
“We are proud that we were able to find the perfect producer for our reality show and are thrilled to be working with this prestigious production company.”
Bank was the executive producer of reality show hits like Mark Burnett Productions’ Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?
“The reason we went with Roy is because we feel that he is the man who will be able to place Courtney’s show in front of the best network for her,” Krista Stodden, Courtney’s momager, told Radaronline.com.
The reality show will give viewers a look into the newlywed’s unconventional lifestyle and promises to be no holds barred.
“They are going to be very, very open about their lives,” Courtney’s mom said. “They want everybody to see their life. Nothing is off limits.”
Of course nothing is off limits, these are the Hutchisons we’re talking about! We’re going to see Courtney “prowling mysteriously around the house while lickin’ my lips searchin’ for some nip” and we’ll get to check out firsthand how “not creepy” Doug is, and yes, we’ll also all ponder how legal it all is.

Did you squeal too? I think I squealed. I don’t know, I made some sound when I heard this news that made my little guinea pig run back inside his house. But anyway, how glorious is this? My new favorite celebrities and models for soulmates, Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden, are getting their very own reality show! And it’s about damn time.
I can’t embed the video where the Hutchisons reveal their reality show plans (it’s on Radar, and I strongly suggest you watch it), but rest assured that Courtney believes that “it’s going to be a reality show like no other. Out of this world.” Then again, it’s not finalized yet – the couple says that right now they’re being “seduced” by producers and they’re in talks of shopping it around to networks – but come on, who wouldn’t want this show to happen?
Other gems from the interview include, well, everything. At one point, Doug says “51 plus 16 equals love,” and Courtney corrects him with “51 plus 16 equals sexy love.” Really, have you ever seen this couple in action? They don’t even seem real. That’s why I included that interview above, just so you could see how outstandingly ridiculous a reality show would be. Really, just watch Courtney move her lips. It’s beautiful.
I’d watch the hell out of this show, what about you guys?

Another reason why Doug isn’t creepy for marrying Courtney Stodden, according to her mother? Girl looks at least 40. She looks like she was rode hard and put up wet, as they say. And I guess Doug doesn’t look quite 50? I don’t know, it’s really hard to follow the thought process of any of these people.
“He’s not creepy. He is such a great guy, he’s so intelligent. I see why they’re together, he looks like he’s in his early 30s, and Courtney looks like she’s in her late 20s. It’s like they’re talking about someone else when they say bad things about Doug. He’s with my daughter and I wouldn’t want a creepy guy with my daughter. He’s a wonderful, great man.”
Ok, so if we’re using Hutchison logic, and if people always say that I look about 16, then that means it would be totally legit for my 23-year-old self to start seriously pursuing Justin Bieber, right? Our love can dare to speak its name?

You could tell, right? I knew you could. Just look at that picture above of that multi-talented 16-year-old. Good breeding, that’s what that is.
Anyway, it turns out that you guys love the Hutchisons, Doug and Courtney, as much as we do, so I’ve been checking around, seeing if I could find any neat stories about the lovely couple. And, wouldn’t you know it, I surely did! Because it turns out that Courtney’s mom, Krista, has almost as good a head on her shoulders as her daughter. And far be it from me to paraphrase.
“I am her mom-ager now,” Krista Stodden told RadarOnline.com. She has moved to L.A. to live near her daughter (next door in fact!) and juggle all of the offers that are pouring in from around the industry.
“Doug was managing Courtney’s career, but he has so many things coming his way that he just can’t handle it all,” she said. “It will be better for Courtney with me managing her.”
A singer and perhaps future reality star, her bombshell daughter has worked with her mother for years Krista said. “I used to produce her TV show, and she respects me and I respect her.”
Krista said she looks up to other mothers in Hollywood who manage their kids and she is confident that she will make the right business decisions for her daughter.
“Dina Lohan, she’s a beautiful lady, and I’m sure she loves her daughter, and she’s tried just as much as any other mother to make the right choices for her kids,” she said about the controversial matriarch of the Lohan family and often party pal of her daughter Lindsay.
The top mom on the block though? Kris Jenner who manages the Kardashian kids’ multiple careers. “Kris Jenner is a real business person who has her family’s best interests at heart.”
But when it comes down to it, there is really only one reason why Krista is working for her youngest child. “I love my daughter, and I’ve been a good parent.”
Thoughts from this charming little piece include “dear God, please let these people get a reality show,” “of course this lady would think Dina Lohan is a good role model for parenting,” and “oh my goodness, all I want for the rest of my life is to be able to watch this reality show.” What about you guys?

Jenn really went and did it, you guys, she really did. She got me addicted to the epic saga of Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden. What’s not to love here? Trashy girls, shady dudes. It’s the romance of the century, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let us miss out on a minute of it if I can help it.
But anyway, Gawker has got the emails between Jeremy Baumhower, radio producer, and the email address listed on Courtney’s very own website. And let me just tell you, I’m still laughing.

I just love ol’ Doug and Courtney, don’t you? What a beautiful couple. If anything gets my heart to pitter-patterin’, it’s the magical love story of a 51-year-old man gettin’ hitched to the trashiest 16-year-old girl I’ve ever seen. And we all know how the rhyme goes … first comes love, them comes marriage …
But no baby carriages just yet, Lord willing! We know because Courtney’s mom had a good long chat with Radar about it:
“She’s making sure as much as she can at this time that it isn’t happening,” Krista said about her newlywed daughter, who tied the knot Hutchison in Las Vegas in May. “She’s on birth control because she would prefer to wait for children,” her mom said. Her husband might have a different idea though. ”I think Doug would love to have children, but Courtney wants to wait a few years.”
“Courtney wants to work on her career,” Krista explained, but knowing that accidents do happen, she said it would be a joy to the family if her daughter did fall pregnant.
“If something happens we do not believe in abortion, so if God blesses them that would be ok, but they’re not trying for a baby now,” she says.
As a would be doting grandmother, Krista said that if Courtney and Doug did have children: “the baby would be so creative. Doug is brilliant, so creative and they both would pass on so many creative genes.”
Honestly, I just gagged a little bit, no joke. Is it weird that the girl’s mom is talking about this like it’s normal? Is it judgy of me to almost vomit at the thought of them having babies right now? I have a lot of questions, let’s get to talking about it.
