Courtney Stodden had a good question for Ken Bone during the debate and it had nothing to do with politics. The reality star, like many, watched the second presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on Sunday night, Oct. 9. Also, like many others, Courtney took great interest of one particular man who was in the audience.
During Sunday night’s presidential debate, all eyes were on Ken Bone, an undecided voter, who asked his question about energy policies, according to Maxim. Many took to social media, particularly Twitter, to talk about his red Izod sweater and mustache. Courtney Stodden outdone everyone when she talked about her instant crush for the young man on Instagram. Stodden took to the social media app to share a side-by-side photo of herself and Ken Bone along with the hashtag #BoneMe.
“Every Barbie needs a Ken … and Ken Bone is mine!” Stodden wrote in the caption below her provocative mirror selfie, which shows her wearing a white lace bra and a barely-there black thong.

Ken Bone quickly became an overnight sensation thanks to his attire. Many viewers took to Twitter to share their love for the 34-year-old man. Thanks to his cable knit sweater, glasses, white button-down shirt, khaki pants, innocent looks, and funny name, he was dubbed as the real “winner” of the debate. Bone is a coal plant operator from Illinois who wanted to ask the presidential hopefuls about their energy policies. The internet, unfortunately, was too busy planning Bone’s future presidential campaign to listen to either of the candidates’ responses, reports Daily News.
Stodden, however, has been seen without her husband Doug Hutchison lately. Last month, she was spotted kissing with a mystery woman. And during an episode of Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss, the 22-year-old discussed the possibility of having more children with Hutchison off into the future.
“It’s hard to say another kid. Yeah, I suppose so. I’m still in the grieving process, so it’s hard for me to answer that question. But you know, you never know. I’m only 22, so I have a long time to think about that.”
Stodden suffered a miscarriage in July. Although the past few months have been difficult for the starlet, she admitted that she does not regret opening up about her miscarriage on social media.
“I’ve had so many people reach out to me – men and women – who’ve experienced it and they just said that I’ve helped them so much. When you think you’re alone, not only in a miscarriage but in any trial in life, you feel like you are the only one and the world is closing in around you. I don’t have any regrets about that at all. I got so much support and felt like I wasn’t alone in that process.”
Stodden also revealed that she’s at a “crossroads” in her marriage with Hutchison. The couple first made headlines when a then 16-year-old Stodden wed a then 51-year-old Hutchison. They were then faced with a long-year-separation two-and-a-half years into the marriage, reports People. Stodden said the reason for their separation at the time was so that she could date around and figure herself out.
“After I got off the show [Celebrity Big Brother], I was like, ‘You know what, I need to sow my wild oats. I need to go out. I need to date. I need to screw.’ So that was basically the primary reason for that separation and we were separated for about a year maybe.”
Stodden said she dated around during their year-long separation. She even received a string of marriage proposals when she dated around. Once she “got it out my system,” she decided to stay married to Hutchison, but she admits that the two are at a “crossroad point” in the current status of their relationship.
“I think when a couple faces a difficult trial in life together, whatever that may be, it either tears you apart or brings you together. And I think right now we’re kind of in the kind of crossroad point where we’re trying to figure it out.”
A source recently told Hollywood Life that Hutchison allows her to date women on the side. It looks like Stodden is not giving up her flirtatious and wild behavior anytime soon, even if she’s still happily married.
