Courtney Stodden Speaks Out About Depression, Substance Abuse, and Miscarriage

Reality star and model Courtney Stodden appeared on The Doctors to talk about her struggles with depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. Stodden is best known for her controversial marriage to actor Doug Hutchison when he was 50 and she was 16. Stodden and Hutchison appeared together on Season 2 of the VH1 reality show Couples Therapy and are now separated.

“I was taking online acting courses from him and somewhere in there, you know, we started falling for each other and I, I fell in love with him,” Stodden said. “We married eight months after we started communicating. I was 16 and he was 50 years old.”

OnThe Doctors, Stodden also opened up about a particularly difficult and personal topic — drug addiction — and how she’s taken to self-medicating to deal with her issues. But luckily, the doctors and a special board-certified addiction specialist offered to help.
