You know you've made it big in the reality television world when we're still talking about you long after you got the boot from your Bravo gig…or in one lady's case when her whole city's series got the ax. 

Here's a little housewives hodge podge for your evening!  We're running the gamut with gossip and franchises…and it's all happening to housewives past.  Lynne Curtin from seasons 4 and 5 of the Real Housewives of Orange County has finally filed for divorce, Real Housewives of D.C.'s Cat Ommanney gave birth to a baby girl, and Kelly Bensimon, formerly of Real Housewives of New Yorkate her weight in jelly beans is writing another book.


You may recall that back in May we reported on Lynne's decision to divorce after twenty-two years of marriage.  While at that time, Lynne hadn't filed with the court, she explained, “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.”

Back then, Lynne's husband 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.”

While we haven't heard anything else from the pair, if they did attempt to reconcile between then and now, it didn't seem to work.  According to TMZ, Lynne has officially filed for divorce from Frank citing "irreconcilable differences."  I guess that's one way to start the new year!

Another housewife is starting off the year with another new beginning.  RHODC's Cat welcomed her third child, writing on Twitter, “Zara Isabella arrived 28.12.12 @3.45pm.She’s absolutely delicious!! We are all delighted to welcome her to the world!”  A photo of the little one that Cat tweeted is posted above.  How precious is that baby?  Cat has two other daughters, Ruby and Jade.

Also taking to Twitter to share some good news is everyone's favorite Scary Island inhabitant.  RHONY's Kelly recently shared with her followers that she is writing another book…a picture book!  Okay, I'm guessing it's probably a book on photography because she wrote,"Taking pict of the #hamptons for my new book. If you see me, say hi." 

So, it appears that there is life after Bravo, and these women are starting 2013 off with a bang!
