Child bride aficionado Doug Hutchison reportedly has his big boy panties in a twist after one of his cast mates on Couples Therapy called him a “child molester” to his face. The horror!
According to TMZ, the show (in which Doug and his human pet Courtney Stodden are participating) began filming last week, and The Dirty‘s Nik Richie wasted no time in telling Doug what we all wish we had the chance to tell him: it’s mad rapey for a grown man to have sex with a 16-year-old girl, whether or not he marries her first. He also refused to shake his hand or speak to him beyond that statement. Burn! According to sources, “Doug was deeply offended by the remark and has been extremely upset since.” Poor widdle pedo.
While I have no great love for The Dirty’s brand of mindless shit talking, I have to say Nik was in the right here. While I’m able to joke about Courtney and Doug’s freakshow from afar because there’s a chance it might all be fake, I don’t know a single person who wouldn’t react exactly the same way to being confronted with Doug’s creepitude up close. I only hope the producers don’t edit it out and we get to see the drama unfold on TV, because it is going to be hell of cathartic.
