Lynne Curtin: My Life After the Real Housewives

The former RHOC star divorced her husband of 22 years—but is still selling her famous cuffs.


What happens to our Real Housewives once they've left a franchise? Each week, we're looking into the lives of past cast members after their exits. This week, former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin.

Lynne Curtin's two seasons as a regular castmember on The Real Housewives of Orange County were filled with juicy storylines: not only did she and her oldest daughter undergo plastic surgery procedures together—a face and neck lift for Lynne, a nose job for Raquel—but we also saw the family's financial problems as they faced eviction from their Laguna Beach, Calif., home.

Then, a year after Lynne's 2010 exit after Season 5, we saw lost footage that showed Lynne's venomous fight with Gretchen Rossi as Lynne accused the blond of ripping off her idea and contacts for a handbag line.

After Lynne left the show in 2010, more epic drama went down as her 22-year marriage imploded. “I love [my husband] Frank but it was time to go out on my own," Lynne told Radar Online in May 2012. "Who knows what the future holds, but I’m looking forward to doing the things that I want to do."

Frank, however, didn't want to lose her. "I’m not a willing participant in this. It hurts to even think about it or talk about it," he told the Orange County Register. "Call me old-fashioned, but I take my vows very seriously.” But that December, Lynne moved forward and filed official divorce documents, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Since their split, Lynne has continued to work hard on her Lynne Curtin Designs jewelry and accessory business, which features the leather and metal cuffs she made famous during her time on RHOC—as well as rings, belts, bags and even collars for dogs. "It's been a great response," Lynne recently told Yahoo TV, "and I'm talking to shopping networks now."

What do you think of Lynne's life since her RHOC exit? Tell us in the comments.
