Absence makes the heart grow fonder?
Blonde TV personality, singer and actress Courtney Stodden is engaged to Doug Hutchison…again. Criticism soared through Hollywood and social media in 2011 when a then 16-year-old Stodden married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. Stodden's mom and manager, Krista Keller, also confirmed the couple's engagement saying, "Courtney realized just how much love she really had for Doug. They really love each other and wanted to be together," Keller said.
The two were married in 2011 in Las Vegas and soon faced a storm of hate and confusion from the public as Hutchison was labeled a "pedophile" and "predator." The two constantly made headlines for their very, very public displays of affection and Stodden's push to be known for more than the controversial marriage - aiming for TV shows, modeling and singing.
Then in 2013, the two divorced and Hutchison confirmed that their large age gap was the culprit. In November 2013, they signed a legal separation document... but it seems the two are now going for a second try at marriage.
Soon after their legal split, Stodden said she was looking forward to being a regular teenager. "Right now I’m just looking to have fun and to grow into who I am as a woman and be single and independent and build my own foundation. I’m just my taking the time to be me and be single and be 19 and to try and be as much as a normal 19-year-old as I possibly can."
Sources say she’s been able to "experience" other men (oh boy) but wants her "old" husband again.
Will the second attempt at marriage be happily ever after for these two? Your guess is as good as ours...
