Southern California born and bred, Lynne Curtin, 51, joined The Real Housewives of Orange County during the middle Season 4. She is married to Frank, 52, and they have two teenage daughters, Raquel, 19, and Alexa, 16.
At the start of this season, Lynne is excited for her newfound independence as she strikes out on her own as a jewelry entrepreneur and develops her cuff line. On the other hand, her husband Frank's construction business has screeched to a halt in a troubled economy.
The Curtins decide it is best to downsize from their Capistrano Beach home to a smaller rental in Laguna Beach. As their finances continue on a downward spiral, they face ongoing troubles with their new rental, but this doesn't stop Lynne from getting a face-lift for herself or rewarding wild teenage behavior by buying a nose job and a $1200 designer purse for Raquel.
The Curtin's’ teenage daughters continue to display total disregard for their parents and their household rules. The laid-back Curtins can't help but go easy on their girls, so they turn to a professional life coach who specializes in teenage behavior.
This season, Lynne also finds a more assertive voice when dealing with the other Housewives and strikes up a close friendship with Tamra Barney.
