When Courtney Stodden rose to international fame for marrying a guy older than her own father at 17, she did so with considerable help and support from her own mother and manager, Krista Keller. She’s now saying the two are here to stay.
Krista recently made an appearance on her daughter’s TV debut, the VH1 reality series Couples Therapy, which also features Courtney’s much older husband Doug Hutchinson.
It won’t be the last time we’re seeing the two together, Keller says for The Huffington Post. In fact, if all goes according to plan, we might just see them on their own reality show, one that would explore the mother/daughter, manager/client relationship.
“I am the momager. I started out producing a little show for Courtney, and it just grew and grew,” Krista explains.
“It's a fine line between being mom and manager, but we are very careful. Courtney is the star, but we all work as a team. I always knew there was something very special about her,” the proud momma says.
“I have been asked to do interviews all over the world, but wasn't comfortable until I sat down with the Couples Therapy lead therapist, Dr. Jenn Berman. After that, I felt great,” she says.
“The producers told me I was incredible, and [they] wished there had been more of me in the show. Now there is talk about doing a momager reality show, and I'm very interested,” Keller adds.
One thing is certain: even if Keller doesn’t get her own show with Courtney, who is now of age, the former “Teen Bride” won’t be going anywhere anytime soon – so those betting that her 15 minutes will be up soon might want to reconsider on that.
“We are getting so many different offers, so you will be seeing more of Courtney, and maybe me,” the momager gushes.
