Courtney Stodden is clawing her way into the public eye with each passing day, and it looks as though all the hard work and effort is paying off as her latest career turn sees her being given her own reality TV show, in which she will star along side husband Doug Hutchison.

Courtney first caught people's attention last year when the 17-year-old married Hutchinson, who at 52 is 35 years older than his stunning teenage wife, in a traditional Las Vegas ceremony. She turns 18 later this month.

The news was broken yesterday (July 31st) when Courtney took to her Twitter site and posted "FYI Stoddenista's: Will be m.i.a for about 3 weeks - packing up & heading out to shoot a reality show! Love you all xxx God Bless, Courtney" to her news feed.

The news was later confirmed by her mother (and manager) on Celebuzz.

Stodden and actor Hutchinson married last June, where the legal age for marriage drops to 16 with parental consent. Given the sizeable age difference, outrage ensued and the pair was forced to defend their union.

Courtney has since broadened her horizons by modelling, made a start as a singer and also running a campaign with animal rights charity PETA.
