I guess Courtney Stodden got sick of all the speculation over whether or not she’s had plastic surgery. So, like any normal 17-year-old girl, she called up TMZ, arrived on the beach, staged a photo-op with her 51-year-old husband and in the process attempted to prove that she doesn’t have fake breasts, a face forged in clay or the brain of a lizard. Or that she isn’t the Sexy Halloween costume version of a person. Any one of those.

…It would appear, of course, that Courtney Stodden is unaware how “proving stuff” works, or at least she’s unclear about the relationship between speculation and evidence. Anyway, here she is on the beach, getting our attention and yours, so at least she knows how publicity works. She’s pretty shrewd with that.
