Courtney Stodden, most famous for marrying then-51-year-old "Lost" actor Doug Hutchison when she was only 16 years old, stops by "Bethenny" on Friday (Nov. 15) to talk about how her parents approved of the marriage and that she considers herself a true feminist.

"A 50-year-old man comes into the picture. Immediately, my father absolutely shut it down," says Stodden. "[But] Doug eventually came down to visit me in Washington state ... when [my dad] met him, he spent about maybe four or five days with him and after his visit was over, my dad took me aside and said, 'I cannot believe I'm telling you this, but you have my blessing to marry this man. I know you're going to be safe. He's a good Christian man.'"

Moving forward, now that she and Hutchison are divorced and her time on the U.K.'s "Celebrity Big Brother" is over, Stodden says she wants to start fresh. »
