According to the OC Register, the housewife and her husband Frank Curtin have paid the overdue rent on their Aliso Viejo, CA home, thus avoiding another eviction on their $2595 a month rental home (the same one they can be seen living in on the show).
“They paid last month and they staved off the wolf,” said Steven Silverstein, attorney for the homeowner. “My client got her money so we stopped the eviction.”
According to Radar, Lynne and her husband Frank Curtin have received an eviction notice for the home they are currently living in, making this their 3rd eviction in a span of 9 months!
Interestingly enough, the Curtins are apparently still living in the same house they were evicted from last year. Other media outlets reported them as moving out of that home; evidently they snuck back in when no one was looking. This 3rd eviction is in addition to a $1.2 million dollar judgment against them, and court records show that since 2000, Lynne and Frank, have had 5 unlawful detainers filed against them.
An insider from the Housewives franchise told Radaronline, “We are all perplexed at what Lynne does with her money, she’s making $90K this year for appearing on the show, making more than enough to afford her monthly rent. I guess they are professional squatters!”
Frank has also acknowledged experiencing some financial hardship with his construction business, “My business all went south and I have been trying to work my way out of it. In the last 4 years I have lost everything, and I went through some really hard times.” He continues, “This has been the worst year of my life.”
Let’s hope 2010 will be a better year for the Curtins.
Evicted Orange County housewife, Lynne Curtin, is now being accused of looting. Evidently Lynne was not only renting her home, but also some of the furniture in it. Lynne and her family moved out of their evicted home days ago.
The actual homeowner/landlord claims the Curtins stole a bookcase, credenza, armoire and a glass shelf — worth around $5,000 — and reported the alleged thievery to Laguna Beach Police Department Friday.
The homeowner also alleges the home’s carpet was trashed, there were holes in the walls and the travertine tub was damaged.
In a statement to TMZ, the homeowner says, “I am blown away that grown people can behave this way. They have daughters, how can they seriously think they are setting an example.”
TMZ is also reporting that this isn’t the first time the Real Housewives of Orange County star and her family have been evicted. Documents were dug up from 2003 that shows the Curtins were kicked out of a home for owing that homeowner: $9,104, an amount they allegedly never paid.
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.
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.
