Here’s a photo of Courtney Stodden walking down Hollywood Boulevard as she goes shoe shopping with her dad, Alex Stodden, who is apparently in Los Angeles for the “premiere” (?!) of Courtney’s new music video, “Reality.” Sure! Just a father and daughter, being totally normal human beings. Maybe after they find some nice shoes he can take her out for ice cream!!!! Daddy’s little girl. (Gross.) You guys, how scary is having kids, though, right? I just mean, like, it’s such a huge commitment and life change and you are now first and foremost a parent until the day that you die, which is fine, because there isn’t really a huge alternative, but it’s still a lot to accept. And I’m not trying to be some kind of heteronormative monster with that “no alternative” comment or anything, lots of people don’t have children for lots of reasons, and if gay people have children they are faced with the same dilemmas. What I mean by “no alternative” is that the rearing of children is one of THE major experiences and potential “purposes” of being on this Earth, and if you don’t take part in it, you are missing out on a key element of “being human.” That’s up to you! But, either way you’re in for a bit of pain, I think. Either you have some kids and deal with all of that, or you don’t have kids and deal with all of that. Tough stuff however you want to cut it. But so imagine that you have a kid, right, and you give up so much of your own identity or at the very least free time, and you now dedicate your life, which has really only just begun in so many ways, to them and then after 18 years of this they grow up and are like, “Mom, dad, I have something I need to tell you. I think I’m Courtney Stodden.” It’s a tough morning, but you love them anyway. They’re your kid!

  1. Daddy’s little wax museum doll.

  2. What is the temperature in Los Angeles? It’s either warm enough to wear a bathing suit or cold enough to wear a fur. You can’t have it both ways Courtney.

    • But you see, she’s one shoulder slinging that fur. What does that tell us about the temperature?? Can we start using Courtney Stodden as a new CSI technique for figure out the exact weather and soil moisture and everything else at the time of murders? Just an idea.

      • Let’s all agree to limit the use of Courtney Stodden and “Soil Moisture” in the same breath. I’m glad it’s here this once, but let’s take it easy from here on out…

    • Temperature varies wildly in LA depending on time of day. If you’re going out on a 12-hour shopping spree, you gotta have layers to accomodate. Her outfit is pretty much how everyone dresses here all the time, NBD.

  3. I think my feet just broke out in sympathy blisters.

    • One of the many things that perplexes me about Courtney Stodden is why she insists on wearing those lucite heels. I have never seen her not wear them, and you know that plastic bridge has to be so uncomfortable. You can still dress “sexy” without those terrible shoes! Come on!

    • Totally. Hollywood Blvd *is* where all of the stripper shoe shops are, after all. I don’t think lucite platform heals were meant for pounding concrete, although the shoe designer Jeffery Cambell probably disagrees as all of his platforms seem to be made with lucite heels nowadays.

  4. Can we possibly stop talking about Courtney, which makes me sad, and maybe go back to talking about Topher Grace? There hasn’t been enough Topher Grace in my life lately.

  5. Life is not fair. How does a spray-tanned frosted flake get a body like that? Genetics should be punishing her with cellulite and stretch marks.

  6. I’m assuming “Christmas Time is Here” played softly in the background the entire evening.

  7. She is our generation’s Shauna Sand.

  8. The only shopping bags that are more sketchy than black plastic are pink plastic. Why do I feel like they just left the Hustler store?

  9. So the time I want to log in with facebook connect, I can’t. This seems like a metaphor for my life somehow

  10. How big is the age difference between Courtney’s dad and Courtney’s Doug? Zero, right?

  11. That guy looks like a disguised alien from Men in Black.

  12. Ugh, another Pussy Posse photo.

  13. Sensuously shopping for shoes with a delectable dad not at all disappointed in my development! #parenting

  14. I didn’t really care at all about these lunatics until I noticed Mr. Stodden is treading upon Pee Wee Herman’s star with nary a notice. Who walks down the Walk of Fame and doesn’t go, “Hey! Pee Wee Herman!” followed by the Pee Wee laugh? What a jerk. I always pay Pee Wee a little tribute when I’m done shopping at Fredrick’s of Hollywood. It’s just what you do.

  15. When we see the star the father is walking on, we become aware of the literal stomping out of the celebration of youth as represented by one Pee Wee Herman, a contemporary Peter Pan for the late last millennium. As our two subjects with their painstakingly cultivated persona promote a celebration of the crucifix of sex and commerce in the city where dreams are created and crushed, all for profit as our boys and girls are encouraged to throw away their innocence to aspire to walk this boulevard of dashed hopes, a home to hollow shells once vessels of humanity now lying littered and broken, begging for a chance to return to that place where their dreams were on the screen in front of them instead of buried under the memories of being used as just another recreational device by these men for whom a red convertible and a hair treatment were not enough to satisfy their lust as their bodies begin to fail them with age.

  16. Are you sure she didn’t go shopping with a Chinese family? I see a lot of Chins there!

  17. Who wears “f*ck me” shoes shopping with their dad?

  18. Her dad’s face = ERMAHGERD PERPAREZZI!

  19. A bit late to the party, but I don’t think your kids just happen to turn into Courtney Stodden all on their own… I think there is an awful lot of pushing and grooming and encouragement on the parts of the parents before something like this happens to a home-schooled 16 year old.

  20. Courtney’s dad and Doug Hutchison probably have a lot in common.

  21. My dad would not be caught dead in public with me if i dressed like that.
