If you walk into Burger King wearing a paper hat, you’re going to get some orders. And conversely, if you’re in your fifties and you get married to a minor, you probably shouldn’t be surprised when someone calls you a child molester. You know, because you’re married to a child. Except now Courtney Stodden‘s husband, Doug Hutchison, is getting huffy because Nik Richie called him a child molester, now it’s causing strife on the set of VH1’s Couples Therapy. I know: contrived tension on the set of a reality television show? Who’d have thunk it. RadarOnline reports …
“After Nik called Doug a child molester for marrying Courtney when she was only 16, Doug was furious with him,” a show insider revealed to RadarOnline. “Doug threatened to kick Nik’s ass after he tried to insult him.”
Courtney and Doug celebrated their fist year of marriage in May and have been criticized for their unconventional relationship ever since they tied the knot but the show insider said that Doug felt he just had to defend himself and his wife against the “uncalled for remarks.”
“People on set said that Doug got mad when he heard Nik making fun of Courtney and didn’t want to let him get away with it.” The source said Doug started calling Nik “pathetic,” and that the two of them will have the most drama this season!
While I have no doubt that everyone on this show is pathetic — let’s face it, when you go on VH1 so that Dr. Drew Pinsky can talk out his ass about your troubled relationship, you’re not exactly swimming in esteem. Nik is so far the only one who has any sort of sanity. Yeah, I just said that. Courtney and Doug make the guy behind The Dirty look quite respectable. That’s amazing!
