Another Real Housewives romance is ending.
According to TMZ, former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin has filed for divorce from her husband, Frank Curtin, after 22 years of marriage. The TV star cited "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce documents and asked a judge to award her spousal support.
The couple married in 1990 and share two daughters, Raquel, 24, and Alexa, 21. Lynne announced their separation in May 2012. "I love Frank but it was time to go out on my own," the jewelry designer told Radar Online. "Who knows what the future holds, but I'm looking forward to doing the things that I want to do."
At the time, Frank, 57, told the Orange County Register, "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."
Lynne, 56, appeared during the fourth and fifth seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County. The couple's financial problems became a central storyline in the Bravo reality show, as cameras captured the family being served with an eviction notice.
