Last month, the 17-year-old and her 51-year-old husband attended meetings with MTV and VH1 in hopes of securing a network for their reality show idea. There’s no substance there, since only 50% of the couple is actually good at anything. Or even intelligent. So, it’s a platform for Stodden’s padding of Victoria’s Secret and inane, hyper-sexual ramblings.
Sources, and Stodden’s pimp momager, tell RadarOnline that the couple were offered to be part of an ensemble VH1 reality show. However, it was a flat no as they want to be the stars.
Courtney, 17, and her 51-year-old husband Doug Hutchison were offered a spot on Relationship Rehab, a show being produced by Celebrity Rehab’s John Irwin. It will follow couples living together in a Los Angeles home who would get counseling by world renowned therapists and participate in therapeutic activities and planned events.
“Though Doug and Courtney considered the offer, in the end they felt that this wasn’t a perfect fit for the kind of show they wanted to do,” a source [said].
“There has been a lot of speculation about their marriage and a lot of people are just waiting for the inevitable ‘train wreck’ to happen, but Doug and Courtney have an incredibly strong relationship and seem very happy together,” the source said.
“So doing a show about going into ‘rehab’ just doesn’t make sense for them.”
Courtney and Doug were offered between $150,000 and $200,000 to appear on the eight-episode series that would have been filmed over three weeks. “By turning down Relationship Rehab Doug and Courtney walked away from a nice chuck of change,” the insider said.
Courtney’s momager Krista Stodden[said]: “Doug and Courtney are faced with an array of career opportunities and offers each and every day. I’m impressed by their ability to stay true to their convictions and stand behind any decision to respectfully pass on projects that they may feel are not completely right for them.” – via RadarOnline.
