The eviction saga of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin has finally ended, as she moved out of her Arch Beach Heights home Wednesday, after receiving another eviction notice on Tuesday.
At first, Lynne refused to move, forcing the homeowner to file an eviction notice with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday. Several neighbors confirmed seeing Lynne and other family members move belongings from their home to a moving van. One of the neighbors also said this isn’t the first time the family have been evicted.
We initially reported that Lynne and her husband, Frank, never paid their security deposit, owing over $12,000 to the homeowner.
“Instead of paying the rent, security deposit and commission to their Realtor, Lynne got a facelift and her daughter got a nose job,” a source told the OCRegister.
The OCRegister also reports the Orange County housewives have reportedly earned $120,000 or more per seasons, however Lynne’s finances from the show are unknown.
Though all their belongings were moved, the garage door was left open, revealing storage and camera equipment owned by Evolution Media, the company filming the show for Bravo.
The latest in the Lynne Curtin eviction soap opera is news that she is refusing to leave her evicted home.
TMZ is reporting that the Real Housewives of Orange County star is refusing to leave, forcing her landlord to file legal papers on Tuesday with the OC Sheriff’s Department. This means if the Curtin family still refuses to leave, police will have to physically drag them out.
According to TMZ, the 51-year-old mother who actually owns Lynne’s rented home, is forced to sleep on her 70-year-old parents’ couch, adding, “It’s humiliating to live in my old parents house because some O.C. housewife cant pay the rent.”
Lynne and her husband, Frank, are said to owe over $12,000.
Radar is reporting The Real Housewives of Orange County star threatened Frank that she is going to file for divorce. One of the reasons being due to their recent financial meltdown. We have previously reported Lynne and Frank received an eviction notice, due to unpaid rent expenses in the amount of $12,000.
The source says Frank has had trouble finding work for two years as the economy has hurt his construction business. “Frank is distraught over Lynne’s threat to file for divorce,” the source continued.
According to the source, Lynne blames Frank for all their financial problems because she feels he’s been hiding the bills from her. Frank is alleged to be distraught over this, as he does not want a divorce.
We recently reported that Lynne Curtin of The Real Housewives of Orange County received an eviction notice from her landlord, giving her just 3 days to pay up or leave. Well the 3 days are now up, and Lynne has yet to pay up or move according to TMZ.
The reason being? Well it appears Lynne and her husband, Frank Curtin, are now claiming the legal document is invalid because it was served on their daughter — who happens to be a minor.
The Curtins, who rent the home they live in on the show, allegedly owe their landlord more than $12,000 in rent and other expenses.
According to TMZ, the Curtins have now lawyered up with plans to contest the eviction. Their landlord however still plans to re-serve the eviction notice, hopefully to an adult this time.
Something about this story is a tad sad, as it appears Lynne and her husband truly cannot afford to pay the $12,000 they owe. Lynne is one of the nicer housewives so it makes it sadder to see this happen to her. However, I do think people should think twice before choosing to appear on a reality show, that solely focuses on the personal lives of the wealthy, especially if they are not wealthy and cannot afford to pay the rent on their rented home.
In not so shocking news, another Bravo housewife is now facing an eviction. TMZ reports Lynne Curtin of The Real Housewives of Orange County, along with her husband Frank Curtin, received a 3-day eviction notice from the owner of the Laguna Beach house where they live. And yes, their home is rented.
According to TMZ, Lynne could be evicted from her home if she doesn’t come up with more than $12,000 in the next three days.
The notice says the couple owes the home owner a $10,000 security deposit, $600 late fee and $1,763 in other expenses. The homeowner also claims the Curtins have been delinquent on their utilities, which have now been shut off.
It gets even better worse, as Bravo cameras were said to be rolling when the eviction notice was served. No word on whether or not this will be shown when the show returns this fall. Knowing Bravo, something tells me it will.
We see Gretchen Rossi,Lynne Curtin, and newest housewife, Alexis Bellino enjoying their time in Fort Lauderdale.
I’m guessing this might be a preview of what is to come on the show. These three will be a close unit while 40 year old mean girl Tamra Barney and the always classy Vicki Gunvalson will continue to be miserable together. Jeana Keough, who has been confirmed to be returning to the show, will likely continue to be a neutral party as always.
Alexis who is from Newport Coast is described as a stay-at-home mother of three. There are conflicting stories on wether or not Alexis is replacing OC veteran, Jeana Keough. The OC Register is reporting Jeana will not be back, while other reports have stated Jeana will be returning.
The one thing we are certain of is that Alexis will be on the show. Alexis’s husband is Jim Bellino, 47. Jim is described as an entrepreneur who use to own a pool table business that was an $8 million-a-year-profit company.
In a new interview with the OC register, Alexis describes filming with the other women – “It has been amazing. I already knew Gretchen. Lynne (Curtin)’s a sweetheart. She doesn’t have a mean bone in body. Vicki (Gunvalson) and I joked and laughed and had a good time. But there’s drama anytime you get five women together.”
Unlike Kelly Bensimon of the NY Housewives, Alexis describes herself as an addict of the show and has seen every single episode.
This should make for an interesting new season. I love the fact that she just happens to be a friend of Gretchen. Alexis is obviously easy on the eyes as is Gretchen. So it might be safe to say Tamra Barney will spend the entire season on trying to “out” her on something, or accuse Alexis of trying to be like her.
