The Word: Courtney Love hasn’t seen her daughter Frances in three years

Courtney Love hasn’t seen her daughter Frances Bean Cobain in three years — but says things are “really good” between them.

“I’m really good with my daughter right now,” she said in an appearance on the “Howard Stern Show” this morning. The Hole singer admitted that they haven’t actually seen each other face-to-face in three years, but said they email and tweet.

Courtney also claims that Frances was offered the role of Bella in the “Twilight” franchise at age 13 after someone “saw her picture in a magazine,” which is 100% how casting for major tentpole franchises works, but says Frances turned it down because it was a “sexist Mormon piece of s—.” That’s Kurt Cobain’s girl.

So what else has ol’ Marlboro Voice been up to? Prepping to appear on a reality show. Courtney won’t say which one, which must be the first time in her life that she’s thought something and not immediately said it, but Howard seems convinced it’s “American Idol.” Best to take everything Courtney says with a grain of salt, but if it is true, would that not be completely awesome? Scarier than Simon and slurrier than Paula. The dream judge, really.

Last week Frances went after Kim Kardashian’s little sister Kendall Jenner, according to the Daily Mail.

After 17-year-old Kendall tweeted “Just wish it could be easier sometimes mann,” Frances Bean soon responded, calling her “a f—ing idiot.”
