  • Mean Betty Applauds Courtney Stodden's New Makeup Choices!

    Gasp! Can it be? Is this really makeup-addicted teen bride Courtney Stodden? Meanie can hardly believe it!
    -Mean Betty,

    Kittens, do you know from whom we haven't heard in quite some time? No, it's not Lindsay Lohan (she got arrested again last week); and no, it's not Amanda Bynes, either (same deal); then who? That's right: Courtney Stodden, teen bride and, so it would seem, budding porn star.

    Courtney, by the way, turned 18 last month; and while this finally makes her legal instead of jailbait, Meanie isn't entirely sure it makes her feel any better about the fact that the girl is married to a 52-year-old. But that-and all of the adult film offers dear Courtney allegedly garnered when she came of age-aside, Meanie is happy to report something POSITIVE about Courtney for once: She is no longer doing her makeup in such a way as to make her look several decades older than she actually is!

    Look no further than the picture above for proof; though if
