The Lifetime celeb-reality series The Mother/Daughter Experiment doesn’t premiere until tonight, but it’s already provided us with plenty of discussion material.

A preview clip released last week featured the return of Kim Richards, who’s fresh from a year of multiple arrests, a stint in rehab and embarrassing, drunken toast at her own daughter’s wedding.

Needless to say, seeing the Richards gals share a roof for the first time in several years should be interesting.

But as dysfunctional as that relationship might get, we’re guessing it won’t hold a candle to the wildly to the intergenerational tension between Courtney Stodden and her wildly effed-up stage mom, Krista Keller.

Right off the bat, Courtney confirms what we’ve suspected for years: that her mother pushed her into the spotlight (and possibly into the arms of her decades-older acting-coach-turned-husband) in order to fulfill her own desire for public adulation.

"She’s crazy for fame," Stodden says of Krista. "She wants it, and she will stop at nothing to get it."

But the wild accusations don’t stop there.

No, just moments later, Courtney accuses her mother of trying to seduce Doug Hutchison, the 55-year-old actor who married Courtney in 2011 when she was just 16.

"She began trying to steal my husband away from me," Stodden says. "She took his hand and said, ‘I don’t know what to do, but I’m in love with you’."

Hilariously, Krista "quit" her job as her daughter’s manager last year after publicly declaring that she was disgusted by Courtney’s sex tape.

Several outlets reported that Krista was actually fired, and now it looks like we may have a good as to why!
