Recently, we posted a photo of Courtney Stodden, allegedly taken when she was 15. She looked bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and notably different than what she looks like now. But it was tough to tell what plastic surgery, exactly, she had undergone (other than a boob job).

So I don’t know about you, but I had hoped that another “before” photo might help answer some questions. Well, one has reportedly been unearthed, via the blog Crazy Days and Nights, but the mystery of Courtney Stodden remains intact. DRUMROLL PLEASE:

And just as a reminder, this is the after:

Between the top pic and the bottom pic, it looks like the following has happened: she’s lost weight, she’s possibly had her lips and boobs done, she’s aged about 20 years, she’s practiced her porn star face in the mirror, and she’s been assaulted by clown make-up.

But the main difference is the most disturbing: Courtney Stodden, from one year to the next, becomes completely and totally dead in the eyes. It looks like someone has sucked the poor girl’s will to live, leaving her an empty carcass of the human being that she once was.

Did she undergo serious trauma? Has she been fed a steady diet of Oxycontin, Xanax and Vicodin for a year-plus? Or did she sell her soul to the devil in order to grow breasts, thereby explaining both the eyes and her mother’s repeated assertion that her daughter hasn’t had surgery?
