Looks like being a professional Housewife on The Real Housewives of Orange County didn’t exactly result in big bucks for one of its former stars. Lynne Curtin, who recently filed for divorce from husband Frank, isn’t living it up in the OC anymore. In fact, this Housewife is flat broke, saying she has less than $100 to her name.
In court documents Curtin filed for her divorce, the ex-Housewife says her total assets don’t amount to more than $100, and that she only earns $250 a month – or $3,000 a year – from her jewelry business. Whether this is all true or she’s just laying the groundwork for spousal support is TBD. However, if the information in the court docs is accurate, then girlfriend is waaaaaay broke. In fact, she’s so far beyond broke that she makes the official U.S. poverty level, which stands at $11,490 a year, look like a walk in the park – or a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive.
Curtin’s expenses were also detailed in the court documents, and the former Real Housewives of Orange County has definitely altered her spending habits since her time on the show. According to the paperwork, Lynne’s dropping just $515 a month on eating out, laundry, entertainment, shopping, clothes, phone and email. While $200 a month just for clothes and entertainment might seem excessive to some, it’s small potatoes for a woman accustomed to purchasing $1,400 leather jackets.
To top it all off, there’s still the $30,000 in back taxes to pay – which Lynne says is Frank’s problem – plus the attorney’s fees for the lawyer handling the divorce. Yeesh. Maybe Lynne Curtin needs to update her resume and start looking for a J-O-B.
What do you think about the Curtins’ financial matters? Do you believe that Lynne is as broke as she says she is? Tell us in the comments!
