Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison / VH1's Couple's Therapy

Courtney Stodden Claims She Was Attacked By ‘Real Housewife’ Alex McCord

“Teen Bride” Courtney Stodden claims she was physically attacked by former Real Housewives of New York City star Alex McCord while they were participating in the VH1 reality show Couples Therapy.

Eighteen-year-old Stodden and her 52-year-old husband Doug Hutchison have been a polarizing presence on the popular VH1 show which features celebrity couples seeking therapy from relationship expert Dr. Jenn Berman.

Stodden, who was 17 at the time of taping, has been the brunt of numerous jokes by other members of the cast; most especially by fellow couple Nik Richie and Shayne Lamas.

Richie, founder of celebrity gossip site The Dirty, went so far as to call Stodden a piece of trash and Hutchison a pervert and pedophile. His wife Shayne Lamas of The Bachelor 12 fame can frequently be seen engaging both Stodden and Hutchison in verbal altercations and refusing to participate in group activities because she finds the teen’s outfits to be inappropriate and distracting.
