Lynne Curtin

GRAMMY Awards Gifting Suite Experience

Things aren't stellar in the financial department for former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin.  Not only is she getting divorced, she also owes the government a pretty penny.

After being plagued with money drama during her 2008-2010 stint on the Bravo reality show, it seems that Lynne still owes Uncle Sam for some back taxes, and it's resulted in a lien.

Woo Hoo! We're 100! And we look every day of it. 

My, my – how things have changed on Real Housewives of Orange County since the beginning! And I can't say all the changes have been good things. 

Last night the show celebrated its 100th episode with a 2-hour flashback/recap of some of the show's most iconic moments. Among the milestones was catching up with some of the memorable cast mates throughout the 8-season run and discussing current cast member's reflections to how the show has evolved.

Tamra Barney, you will be relieved to know, hasn't changed one single iota except her hair has gotten less frizzy and her boobs smaller. Thank God for small mercies… #sarcasm In her casting video Tamra is a grade-A bitch and says when producers told her they were deciding between her and one other woman for the spot she turned up the ruthlessness.

For your Friday dose of The Real Housewives of Orange County, we have three weddings and a divorce, and an on-and-off friendship that is apparently back on again.  I’m sure I’ll be telling you differently on Monday!

And another Bravo Housewives marriage bites the dust.  Lynne Curtin, the cuff selling, non-blinking, exercise fanatic from seasons four and five of RHOC, is planning to divorce her husband Frank.  As you recall, the couple famously lived far above their means (which is apparently a qualification to be on the franchise), with Frank hiding the money woes from his wife and two daughters.  The couple was even served with an eviction notice while being filmed for the show!

Yesterday Lynne announced, “After more than 20 years of marriage Frank and I have decided to go our separate way.  I love Frank but it was time to go out on my own.”

“Who knows what the future holds, but I’m looking forward to doing the things that I want to do,” continues Lynne, adding that she has yet to file for divorce.

In a phone interview with the Orange County Register, Frank stated, “I’m not a willing participant in this. It hurts to even think about it or talk about it. Call me old-fashioned, but I take my vows very seriously.”

Bravo aired the lost footage of the Real Housewives of Orange County last night and it featured a never been seen before smackdown between Gretchen Rossi and Lynne Curtin!

The drama began when former housewife Lynne told Tamra Barney that she felt stabbed in the back by Gretchen. The reason? Not only did Gretchen apparently steal her idea to start a handbag line, but Gretchen also recruited the help of the people introduced to her by Lynne months earlier after Lynne asked her to tag along to a business meeting. Lynne also revealed she was upset with Gretchen for starting the bag line without informing her, before going on to accuse Gretchen of just slapping her name on her handbag line.

Upon hearing Lynne’s comments from others, Gretchen decided to confront Lynne, who refused to back down. “I don’t know what’s your business. What’s the business of the week? Is it cosmetology? Is it real estate or is it make up? What is it?” asked Lynne when Gretchen demanded to know why she was talking smack about her business. “She’s ripping me off,” added Lynne in her camera interview. Gretchen’s response was that she didn’t need Lynne’s permission to begin her line, adding that Lynne also hawks a lot of different products. A look at Lynne’s website Lynnecurtin.com does show she now sells bedding in addition to her jewelry line.

And this morning, Tamra chimed in… of course, giving more details on handbag-gate. Below is what Tamra posted on her facebook page –

“The reason Lynne was so mad is because the “2 guys” found out lynne was making handbags and tried to get her to slap her name on their bags. She said NO she wanted to design her own bags. so they went to Gretchen after meeting her with Lynne at an event . She felt betrayed !”

As for Gretchen, she isn’t directly responding to Lynne’s comments, simply tweeting yesterday, “Bottom line: I don’t have the time or energy for negativity or negative people in my life! Too many positive things to do!” A video clip is below for those who missed the bitchfest episode.

The lost footage show also gave us a lot of new footage such as Alexis Bellino visiting a marriage counselor and admitting her and Jim visit the counselor several times a week. We got to meet Darren Vieth aka Tamra’s ex and father of her son Ryan Vieth, as the two prepared for Ryan to get surgery for Gynecomastia aka breast development in men — a side effect of steroids usage. Ryan admitted he had taken steroids in the past. Also on the reunion show lost footage, Vicki Gunvalson revealed estranged husband Donn used to threaten her with divorce quite often during their marriage.

Speaking of Vicki, she has now deleted her facebook page in addition to making her twitter page private following the recent backlash and negative publicity concerning her boyfriend Brooks Ayers. It came out last week that Brooks was arrested twice for failure to pay child support and once for a DUI.

Meanwhile following last week’s reunion, Slade Smiley spoke with E! Online about Tamra’s comments and her contact with his ex-girlfriend/mother of his son Michelle Arroyo. “I am still very confused as to why Tamra thinks any of this is her business, and we find it very creepy she would reach out and have a conversation with someone she has never met,” said Slade. He continues, “I believe Tamra is delusional and willing to do anything and everything to stay in front of the camera and stay on TV no matter whether it hurts her kids or the people around her.”

Tamra fired back in her own E! Online interview. Speaking on her new friendship(??) with Michelle, Tamra claims, “We became friends through a mutual friend. I feel extremely sorry for her and my heart breaks for her and Grayson. Michelle is a very strong woman and went out of her way to contact me today to tell me that she was proud of me for standing up for her and Grayson and to keep my head up.” Tamra also has choice words for Slade, but manages to get in a dig to Gretchen as well. “While [Slade has] accused me of many false and bold lies throughout the entire season, I am not crying to the press about them. Why? Simply because his allegations are false. The bottom line is that I don’t care what Slade has to say about me. Like Gretchen, he thrives on lies and manipulation,” she says.

This interview was done just days before the details about Vicki’s boyfriend came out. Tamra has still yet to comment on that.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LOST FOOTAGE EPISODE? DOES LYNNE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE MAD AT GRETCHEN? DID GRETCHEN BACK STAB HER? PLUS THOUGHTS ON SLADE VS TAMRA?

According to a new report, Slade Smiley, boyfriend/rumored fiance of Gretchen Rossi, is still owing loads of child support while also driving on a suspended license.

A new report by MostWantedDeadBeats website via the OC Register states that Slade, 42, is now owing $138,850 in child support debts, a rapid increase from the previous amount of $84,962, due to interest owed on arrears in addition to the piling unpaid support.

Slade, an extra on the Real Housewives of Orange County, was scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday to address the payments owed to his ex-girlfriend and mother of his son Grayson Smiley, Michelle Arroyo. It is however uncertain if the hearing took place as Michelle notified the courts that Grayson was sick and in the hospital. Grayson suffers from a rare form of brain cancer.

It gets even worse as court documents show Slade’s driver’s license was suspended on Jan. 8 due to the delinquent child support.

This however hasn’t prevented Slade from driving as the OC Register notes he has been spotted driving around Costa Mesa, where he lives with Gretchen, in a powder-blue Mercedes Benz and a black Range Rover.

A judge also recently ordered Slade to seek work outside of the entertainment/TV industry due to his claims that he has been unable to earn money through those ventures for extended periods of time. Though it seems Slade has yet to find a job as of today.

It was reported Slade admitted in court last May that he had received some payments for his appearance on the OC Housewives, but had the funds paid to Gretchen and then re-directed to him to avoid mandatory deductions.

Gretchen sure knows how to pick them.

In other OC news, it seems OC wild teens Raquel and Alexa Curtin have yet to curb their crazy ways. Months ago, theDirty website posted some risque photos of Lynn Curtin’s daughters, while also reporting the underage girls are always drinking and are heavy into the rave scene. Which brings us to a very important question – Raves still exist?

Other readers allege the girls are also into drugs. Some of the photos are posted below but these aren’t leaked photos as Raquel’s myspace page proudly displays one of the pics as her profile photo. As we have reported, Lynn is no longer a cast member on the upcoming season of the OC Housewives, set to premiere Mar. 6.
