Courtney Stodden & Doug Hutchison Demand $3 Million For Radio Interviews! Are They Delusional?

Wow, talk about an inflated sense of self-importance!

According to Gawker, country singer-turned-“child bride” Courtney Stodden, 16, and husband Doug Hutchison, 51, have demanded a whopping $3 million to conduct a series of radio interviews.

Gawker published on Friday an email exchange between radio producer Jeremy Baumhower and Doug, in which Jeremy asked if Courtney and/or Doug would make themselves available for a radio tour, in which they would spend about two to three hours doing interviews that would be broadcast on more than 600 radio stations, reaching an audience up to 20 million. Plus, any station which played the interview would be required to play Courtney’s music.

Free publicity for a fame-hungry teen trying to launch a singing career? Not a bad deal. But Jeremy was shocked when Doug responded “we want 3 million to appear.”

Jeremy pushed further, highlighting the free publicity, but Doug responded back simply, “we want money.”

Interestingly enough, Jeremy, who’s negotiated interviews with the likes of Nick Cannon, suspects Courtney is actually behind the emails—and the outrageous monetary demands. Why?  Because $3 million is “a laughably large sum that you wouldn’t ask for if you had ever negotiated such deals or worked in Hollywood before,” reports Gawker.

Or, Doug could actually be that clueless, and think their asking price is actually seven-figures!

C’mon, she said “3 million”. She didn’t specify that it had to be dollars. That could be three million of anything!

If everyone would stop giving them attention, they wouldn’t feel so important! If they get this $3 million, it will be because the public can’t stop gawking in horror. Perhaps we should stop reacting now.
