Courtney Stodden refuses to cover up, gets kicked off 'Couples Therapy'

Teen-bride-turned-reality-star Courtney Stodden and her husband, 52-year-old Doug Hutchison, got the boot on Wednesday night's episode of "Couples Therapy."

The duo, who were far from beloved by their fellow houseguests, found themselves the subject of several cast complaints -- many of which centered on Courtney's distracting clothing, or more to the point, the lack thereof. That prompted show psychotherapist Dr. Jenn Berman to demand that the 18-year-old cover up.

Courtney agreed at first, donning full-length jeans and a tank top, but she was soon back to her barely-there ways.

"I'm an activist for bullying," she told Dr. Jenn in defense of her decision to continue to wear next to nothing.

But really, she saw herself as something more than that.

"I guess you could call me the 21st century Erin Brockovich," she said.

No, really.

And this Brockovich-for-a-new-generation wasn't about the budge on the issue.

"It's unfortunate because I think we had a lot of good work to do," Dr. Jenn said. "(But) if you're not willing to follow the dress code, you have to leave."

Courtney and Doug packed their bags and did just that.

The remaining couples, including former "Real Housewives of New York" stars Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, pretended to be sad about the departure -- in between fits of laughter.

"Couples Therapy" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on VH1.
