Yeah, remember how I popped open a bottle of champagne after hearing about how Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison were given Das Boot from VH1’s Couples Therapy because Courtney was basically jump-starting pedophiles? Well, I may have been a tad early on that one, because not only are Courtney and Doug back, but they brought Courtney’s mom, Krista Keller, with them, and of course she’s already angling for her own reality television show. Via HuffPo …
“I am the momager. I started out producing a little show for Courtney, and it just grew and grew,” Krista Keller tells The Huffington Post. “It’s a fine line between being mom and manager, but we are very careful. Courtney is the star, but we all work as a team. I always knew there was something very special about her.”
“I have been asked to do interviews all over the world, but wasn’t comfortable until I sat down with the Couples Therapy lead therapist, Dr. Jenn Berman. After that, I felt great. The producers told me I was incredible, and [they] wished there had been more of me in the show,” says Krista. “Now there is talk about doing a momager reality show, and I’m very interested.”
So basically, Krista ruined her daughter forever so that she could live vicariously through her. Hmmmmm, where have we seen that before? Anyway, Krista went after the rest of the Couples Therapy cast, claiming they set a poor example for Courtney, so here are a bunch of VH1 celebrities being the voices of reason for once, thus creating a logical loophole that could very well break the fabric of reality.
“Krista’s attitude is pretty telling,” Alex McCord tells The Huffington Post. “She said that parents have an obligation to set good examples for their children, and the other people on this show didn’t set good examples. Newsflash: None of us are Courtney’s parent. We were not there to parent her or anyone else. That’s Krista’s job, not ours, not Dr. Jenn’s and not Doug’s. Frankly, if Krista had done a better job of example-setting and parenting to begin with, Courtney wouldn’t be acting out as she does.”
“Perhaps Krista, if you had been a mom first and a momager second, you might just have instilled in your daughter the ability to respect others,” Simon Van Kempen tells The Huffington Post. “Prior to any interaction with other cast members your daughter was heard saying to her husband ‘let’s go and start some drama’ and that she did. Courtney also disrespected her own husband by returning to the house that day dressed in a way which defied Dr. Jenn’s dress code, as she’d not discussed it with him first. Respect is earned and Courtney has done nothing so far on the seven episodes that have aired, to earn any.”
