Doug Hutchison wanted to have a romantic relationship with his young wife, Courtney Stodden, whom he married when she was a minor, and Courtney’s mother, Krista Keller.
Krista claims that Courtney and Doug went through an early rough patch. Krista consoled Doug and they became close.
Krista recalls: “She [Courtney in her teens] goes, ‘[Doug is] mean, he’s crabby, he’s old, he’s disgusting. And I want to be with people my own age.’ …And this was a hard time for Doug, so Doug was reaching out to me because I was right next door, and I was there for him emotionally. You know, it looked like every time [there were issues with Courtney], Doug wanted to talk with me — I don’t know if Courtney much liked it, but I was there for him when she wasn’t.”
Krista claims that she and Doug never slept together but he wanted to.
Krista insists that she never fell in love with Doug either. Krista explains: “There was concern that [I could perhaps fall in love with him] if we continued on being so dependent on each other.”
Doug wanted a threesome with mother and daughter!
“[Doug] was asking me to stay there with him and saying that he’s had fantasies of having both Courtney and me,” recalls Krista. “And so when he started talking like that, I thought, ‘Oh, my God — this is headed in not a good direction.’ So I’m the one that actually decided to step away and encourage Doug to find help somewhere else.”
Courtney and Krista are starring on Lifetime TV show The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition.
On the show Courtney revealed that she felt used/sold out by her mother in the pursuit of fame. Krista admitted “It’s going to haunt me every day that I signed that paper for her to marry that man. I feel so bad about it.”
Courtney’s estranged mother (they haven’t spoken in over 6 months or seen each other in a year) added “I don’t really even know her anymore… It’s just like, ever since she got into Doug’s entanglement, she’s just changed. My daughter that I’ve raised and knew and loved is just no more. It’s like she’s gone.”
Mother and daughter are currently working through their issues.
