It’s chic to date sheikhs? In The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition’s Friday, April 22, episode, Doug Hutchison makes his much-anticipated arrival in the house, and he has a lot to say about his marriage to Courtney Stodden, as seen in Us Weekly’s exclusive first look.
The Lifetime series’ preview clip shows the Lost actor, 55, revealing that he met with Stodden’s mom, Krista Keller, back when things were getting serious between him and Stodden, 21. Much of this season’s drama has centered on Keller’s issues with Hutchison, as she admitted to telling her daughter’s husband she was in love with him.
“After I found out about Courtney’s age, I had a really frank talk with Krista, and I said, ‘Listen, I don’t know if you know what’s going on here, but your daughter and I are falling for each other,'” Hutchison says during a group therapy session. “And Krista said, ‘You’re a good person, and I don’t have any problem with you and Courtney continuing to explore this together.'”
“Courtney was being courted by tons of men closer to her age, wealthier than me, more famous — from sports figures to politicians to sheiks in the Middle East,” continues the actor, who tied the knot with Stodden in 2011 when she was just 16.
