Courtney Stodden Appears on the Doctors and Opens Up About Drug Habits, Anxiety, and Divorce
If you don’t know who Courtney is, here is a quick background story. At the age of 16, Courtney Stodden was thrown into the spotlight by marrying then-50-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson in 2011. That’s pretty fucked up if you ask me.
Six years later, at age 22, she has suffered a miscarriage and is still in the midst of a bitter divorce from Hutchinson. Now, she reveals the grief and pressure have driven her to become dependent on prescription drugs. I don’t know too much about Courtney but you can’t help feel bad for her. She was put into a life changing situation at such a young age and has been messed up ever since.
Daily Mail reported:
“Today the aspiring actress will appear today on The Doctors, seeking help from the on-set experts to explain her personal torment and discuss how to move forward.
Stodden admits on the show that it was ‘crazy’ to marry 56-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson when she was 16 years old and he was 50 years old.
She said it’s difficult to talk about last year’s miscarriage and recognized that mixing champagne with anti-anxiety medication would lead her down a slippery path.
Now Stodden said she is moving forward in her battle against her ‘demons’ of anxiety and depression, and is trying to focus on finding herself.”
Catch her on the Doctors if you want to hear more about her story, I won’t bore you with the details. Let’s just hope she is able to turn things around and get her life back on track.
