Yes, this is the second post about Courtney Stodden this week but that is why Videogum’s motto is “All the Courtney Stodden That’s Fit To Blogs.” It was very difficult for us during those early years when Courtney Stodden didn’t exist yet, but now it is really coming together for old Videogum. ANYWAY, there are actually a couple of things worth pointing out about this picture, besides the fact that it came from the UK Daily Mail in a story that is just about how Courtney Stodden did a photoshoot dressed as Marilyn Monroe for no particular reason. That’s INTERNATIONAL NEWS now! The fact that Courtney Stodden simply has a photoshoot is making headlines AROUND THE GLOBE. But more importantly, it is hilarious that by imitating one of the most legendary sex symbols of all time, Courtney Stodden is wearing the most clothes she’s probably ever worn in her life! So many clothes, by Courtney Stodden’s standards. A whole dress! With lucite heels of course. It’s not the 1920s anymore. (And admittedly there are a few photos from the shoot where she is basically lifting the dress up all the way over her head because clearly an entire dress is too constricting and she started hyperventilating through her vagina and had to let it BREATHE, but we are not posting those pictures because COURTNEY STODDEN IS A CHILD AND SOME OF US WOULD DO WELL TO REMEMBER THAT, DAILYMAIL.UK. AND LOTS OF OTHER PLACES, TOO.) The other thing that’s funny about this, at least to me, is how Marilyn Monroe was a beloved celebrity who sadly became a trainwreck, where as Courtney Stodden started as a trainwreck and sadly became a celebrity. REVERSE TWINSIES! Lincoln had a publicist named Kennedy. Kennedy had a swagger coach named Lincoln. I’m pretty sure this photo is what Eddie Vedder wrote this song about.

  1. I was PRETTY SURE that link was going to go to “Daughter.” Because of how Courtney is always upset that people think she is Doug’s daughter.

  2. Dear Gabe,

    Please do not post pictures that make me feel like I should be put in jail… unless that is where I am truly destined to be. Thank you.

    All college guys who still have a hard time differentiating between 17 year olds and 18 year olds.

    P.S. Look at the rack on that lamb! – Grandpa’s final words.

  3. Who are two people to whom the phrase “tragic and short life” will eventually apply?

  4. Now I’m just continuing my Courtney Stodden/Facebook connect trend. If these are linked to my facebook profile, I have a feeling my relatives are going to be very concerned about me.

  5. Thats just a really good wig.

  6. My favorite thing about this shoot is how fresh and unobvious it is.

  7. Magnificently manipulating more men but still mostly miserable and misguided…mmmm yummy #courtneystoddentweets

  8. Those lucite heels are one thing, but the clear strap of plastic that is meant to serve as the non-heel part of the shoe is really disturbing. Isn’t this just a giant sweat trap in the making?

  9. When I was 16, my best friend and I found an antique shop that also sold vintage clothing that had a going out of business sale. We found matching dresses (maybe bridesmaids?) that were blue versions of this, but with sequins and beading around the waist. We used to get really high, doll ourselves up like Marilyn Monroe, and sit on the overpass waving at cars to count how many honks we could get. I’m pretty sure we thought we were as hot then as she thinks she is now.

    My point is, thank goodness nobody ever let me be famous. There but for the grace of god…

  10. Also, that “husband” of hers comes across pretty flamboyantly in interviews, so the only way I can allow myself to live in a world that would let something so horrible happen so publicly is by telling myself that they are a perfectly platonic, best friend queen/hag combo who just have a really good “dress up” collection at home and are having a blast with their images and that nobody was sexually groomed from a young age or is being exploited by the people she should be able to trust.

  11. Gabe,

    You are great at writing! You should stick with it.


    • No, sorry. That’s not how we feel about Gabe around here.

      • Dear Max,

        I am sorry to say that I have secretly found out that Mr. Blume is having an affair with Miss Cross. My first suspicions came when I saw them Frenching in front of our house. And then I knew for sure when they went skinny dipping in Mr. Blume’s swimming pool, giving each other handjobs while you were taking a nap on the front porch.

        Why am I telling you this now? Because you’re such a good friend. Take care, pal.


  12. It’s like a visual representation of the worst karaoke ever.

  13. JFK called her a real Washington L.A. slut.
