Seventeen-year-old Courtney Stodden gained fame in 2011 for marrying 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. For some reason, she intrigued the public who started following her every move. While most of the attention stemmed from inappropriate, impromptu photo shoots, she also gained a fan base on Twitter for her alliterative tweets.
Many are quick to judge the aspiring singer, seeing her as nothing more than attention seeking, but Stodden proves once again that there is more to her than meets the eye. Spending New Year’s Eve in Venice Beach, Stodden and her husband spent some time shopping, but not for what you might think. Rather than browsing the racks for some new clothes, Stodden stopped in at a book store to pick up some new things to read.
Stodden’s love of books is no secret. For Christmas, her husband got her a thesaurus (actually, he got her three). She has said that her favorite book is The Bible and it is apparent that she uses both of those books when writing her tweets.
Stodden has not yet revealed how she spent her New Year’s Day, nor has she tweeted yet this new year. It will be interesting to see what she does this year. Will she release more songs? Get her own reality television show? Or will Courtney Stodden continue to intrigue the public in her own simple way?
