Courtney Stodden Still Looks Really, Really Different

It’s been a while since we’ve really cared about Courtney Stodden, at least in the deep, aching, almost teenaged and almost certainly deranged way TheGloss used to. Anyway, Stodden’s been quietly undergoing a makeover for some time now, sporting soft eye makeup (well, comparatively), less foundation, more natural brows, more identifiably human hair. Many people (in our office and outside) speculate that Stodden’s sporting the new dye job/makeup to distract from possible cosmetic surgery. Or, perhaps, ease us into it?

Regardless, we have noticed the dropoff in Stodden coverage. Is it because her shtick got old? Or because… she did? It kind of saddens/sickens us to think that people are less interested in Stodden now that she’s no longer 16. Though, granted, her antics are marginally less perverse in this capacity.

We actually think the real problem is self-awareness. A little while back, Stodden started staging absurd, unsettling photo-ops with the paparazzi (NSFW-ish) and suddenly it just didn’t feel as absurd. Also, once sentience pervaded her Twitter persona, things just weren’t the same.

Her look is still a different story:

Duckface firmly in place, she just had a lighter hand with the lip liner.

Anyway, this has been your brief, bittersweet Courtney Stodden update.

    She’s on VH1′s new season of “Couples Therapy” which I watched last night and hated myself for watching at the same time.

    She looks better now! She seems less dead behind the eyes.

  • jamiepeck

    She’s only just begun, Ashley. Just wait until she moves onto phase 2 of her plan.

    I like her paler look. It is hard to tell if someone has had cosmetic surgery, but many celebrities do indeed get very good, subtle work done, which of course is much nicer to watch on television or the big screen. And that is the goal, to enhance natural beauty. I prefer to be able to recognize people!

    Noooooooooo, the frosted lip gloss is back!!! She looked so much better without it.

    I am bizarrely fixated on Courtney Stodden and I 100% blame The Gloss.

    This is all because of Nik Richie who was/is on Couple’s Therapy as well. A lot of people think she is doing this in an attempt to fit his rigid beauty standards/look more like his wife Shayne Lamas. I’m sure none of you read thedirty.com, but you really should. It’s basically any feminists worst nightmare, but makes for a bizarrely fascinating look into pop psychology and the culture of fame whoring.
