Bravo might want to consider changing the name of their Real Housewives franchise series to the Real Brokewives because all of them seem to have their share of financial woes.
The latest Real Housewives star to lose her home is Orange County star Lynne Curtin. Curtin owed more than $12,000 in rent and expenses in her rented Orange County residence. Yes, that’s right, rented.
But wait, it gets better.
Curtin has been accused of stealing more than $5,500 worth of furniture from the home. Among the items Curtain allegedly stole were a bookcase, credenza, armoire and a glass shelf.
The homeowner sent TMZ.com a statement regarding Curtin, who said, "I am blown away that grown people can behave this way. They have daughters, how can they seriously think they are setting an example."
This isn’t the first time Curtin and her family has been evicted. In 2003 they were kicked out of their residence after they owed $9,104.
Lisa Wu Hartwell and NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta both reportedly lost their Atlanta homes but both women have denied that was the case. Hartwell claimed she chose to move and Leakes moved on her own as well after she was served with an eviction notice.
There’s nothing real about reality television but don’t you feel a little cheated knowing that there’s nothing fabulous or glam about some of the women on Real Housewives?
Maybe Bravo needs to start running credit checks on the cast members of Real Housewives.
Chime in: Do you think the Real Housewives women are victims of the economic downturn or are they just living beyond their means?
