I can’t even begin to tell you how upset I am that I missed this. This mall is literally two blocks from my apartment. I go there, I’m sorry to admit, like every weekend. So OF COURSE the one day that I don’t go, who shows up? None other than teen bride Courtney Stodden. This particular celebrity sighting would be Gosling-esque for me insofar as I would shit myself, if only because I’ve spilled so much pathetic ink tracking this girl’s comings and goings.

Sigh. You can’t win them all. So in lieu of a first-person account, we’re all going to have to settle for this photo set, which captures Stodden wandering around the outdoor mall in a floor-length evening gown as confused onlookers wonder what went wrong with the world. Whee!
