Teen bride Courtney Stodden plans to have a long future in the public spotlight, and no one is more certain she'll succeed than her mother-manager, Krista Keller, who wouldn't mind a little fame of her own.
“I am the momager. I started out producing a little show for Courtney, and it just grew and grew,” Krista tells The Huffington Post. “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.”
Having stepped before the camera on her daughter's VH1 reality show, "Couples Therapy," it now seems mama has caught showbiz fever herself.
“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. The producers told me I was incredible, and [they] wished there had been more of me in the show," says Krista. "Now there is talk about doing a momager reality show, and I'm very interested.”
Krista notes that she had to sign papers before her daughter could marry 52-year-old Doug Hutchison because Courtney was not yet 18 years old. She also says that even after the marriage, she remained her daughter's legal guardian until Courtney came of age and, because of child labor laws, she had to sign her daughter's contract to do "Couples Therapy."
“We are getting so many different offers, so you will be seeing more of Courtney, and maybe me,” said Krista.
