Teenage bride Courtney Stodden and her much older husband Doug Hutchinson clearly joined the cast of Couples Therapy not because their marriage was in trouble, but because whatever plans they had for landing their own reality show fell through. This is their plan B: Join an ensemble-cast reality show and hijack filming with manufactured drama and stripper outfits (or a combination of the two) in order to secure the most camera time.
Obviously, none of the quasi-celebrity couples who signed on for the show did so strictly for the purpose of repairing their relationships. They were undoubtedly glad to be on TV, get a paycheck, promote whatever businesses they have, etc. The difference, though, is that none of them were caught on camera saying, "Hey, where is everybody? Let's go start some drama!" as Courtney did as she was walking up to meet the rest of the cast for the first time, wearing 10-inch clear heels and a skirt about half that length. That moment exposed more about Courtney than one of her bikini tops — her intentions were not very honest, as far as the concept of the show goes.
In the minutes following their introductions, Courtney and Doug got into a fight with The Dirty's founder Nik Richie and his wife Shayne Lamas. You have to really be some lowlife, disgusting trash to make Nik look like the respectable one and Shayne sound well-spoken. (Seriously, click that link, watch the videos, be amazed by the slime and simplicity.)
