I have been so good lately. Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden keep giving incredible interviews, and I have sanctimoniously sidestepped each one. My mettle deserves a medal.

But I officially give up.

The Week in Review: After verifying that Courtney Stodden is 16 (she really, really is), Good Morning America interviewed the newlywed couple. And you didn’t hear a single peep out of me. Nope! (Even though I wanted so badly to post a link to this.)

More recently, E! interviewed Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison, whereupon Hutchison again blasted rumors that his wife has had plastic surgery (and in fact, she probably hasn’t).

In that same interview, Hutchison says that his marriage has been a boon to his career: “What’s kind of blown my mind about how this has all gone so global and viral,” he told E!, “is that I have had more opportunity now. I’ve been courted by producers, directors, agents… record executives.” Which is good news because, soon after his wedding, Hutchison was reportedly dropped by his agent (and his mom).

Actor Doug Hutchison, 51, Weds “Singer” Courtney Stodden, 16

Introducing the Hutchisons!

Wedding bells pealed Friday, May 20 for actor Doug Hutchison and his bride, 16-year-old Courtney Stodden! The couple married in Vegas.

Hutchison, a talented character actor who briefly trained at Julliard, is 51. He played my favorite alien serial killer on X-Files. But you might remember him best from his gut-turning portrayal of creepy sociopathic prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile.

The new Mrs. Hutchison is a self-described “upcoming recording artist, a model, inspiring actress, dancer, [and] TV show hostess.” Her website adds that she is an “all-American girl.”

The couple released this statement:

We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial. But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.

Aww, I think this is great. Every 16-year-old girl dreams of marrying a movie star. Dreams really do come true!

Other advantages to their 35-year age difference:

- Courtney can buy beer and cigarettes if she brings her new husband along. (Kidding! No one cards this girl, guaranteed.)

- She’s 16! Maybe she’ll finally get that used car she’s had her eye on.

- In a few years he’ll pick up the tab for her boobs college tuition!

- Then he’ll actually save money, since Courtney will be able to use her student discount on everything.

- Maybe now we can all stop freaking out about the two-year gap between cradle-robbing Selena Gomez and young, innocent Justin Bieber. Ha, ha, yeah, right!

Well? Did I miss anything? Help a lady out.

I don’t even want to picture a lover’s quarrel between the two, though. What do you think? Will she shout “You’re not my father!” and slam the door to her bedroom?
