Courtney Stodden is often photographed as a “celebrity”, but she’s only known for marrying 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison when she was only 16. She later went on to appear on “Couple’s Therapy” and “Big Brother”. She’s most famous for her huge boobs and for wearing very little clothing.

Reality star Kim Kardashian is as famous or more so than she was years ago. Most of us are left scratching our heads as to why she is still famous.

These days Kim is engaged to rapper Kanye West and a mommy. She does have great curves but is that enough to make you famous? Apparently so!
