Don't bother sending Courtney Stodden any love letters, because—by her own admission—she won't be able to understand them.
In an episode of Bethenny Frankel's talk show airing Friday, Nov. 15, Doug Hutchison's 19-year-old ex admitted unashamedly, "I don't read or write."
This is why, Courtney explained, she won't be penning a tell-all book. Funnily enough, though, the former Big Brother U.K. contestant said she's "a firm believer" in "not judging a book by its cover"—when it comes to her as a person. "I am realizing now that I think it's healthy for me to focus on me and kind of reverse it a little bit," she said. [I want to] start over again."
So what's next for Ms. Stodden? "Right now I am focusing on different thing than wanting to star on reality TV," she said. And porn's off the table, too. "That's the not direction I'm taking," she went on. "Trust me, the second I turned 18 the entire porn industry turned upside down, Vivid, all of them, I turned down a $5 million porn offer about three months ago."
She does, however, have a solo sex tape, but it remains private—for now.
As for the critics slamming Courtney for having plastic surgery and dressing provocatively? She pays them no attention. "I happen to feel comfortable like this," she said. "I like the way I look—I love the way I look. I think that's all that matters. I think that can empower other people, too, from hearing that."
"I know people might think this is funny, but I actually feel that I am a true feminist," she said, "because I believe in women looking the way they want to look. I think real women support women."
Real women do support women. They also read books.
