We all know that one housewife will be leaving on this Tuesday’s episode (December 9) of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County”, but who will be filling the void after the mystery housewife is gone?  The answer is Lynne Curtin, a “sexy, stay-at-home mother of two teenage girls.”  She is also a former gymnast, does not like to say no to her children and has a “strong jaw.”  Curtin and her husband, Frank, will be making their “housewives” debut in the December 16 episode. 

Here’s more information about Curtin.

Re-posted from

The toned and tanned Lynne Curtin, a sexy, stay-at-home mother of two teenage girls, joins the cast of Bravo’s hit docu-series “The Real Housewives of Orange County” in a new episode airing Tuesday, December 16 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson and Jeana Keough are still rattled over meeting blonde bombshell Gretchen Rossi. But tensions escalate even more when the newest housewife, Lynne Curtin, attempts to join the clique. Lynne and her husband of over 18 years, Frank, are happily married and own a beautiful seaside home in Laguna Beach, Calif., where they enjoy every minute of their active Southern California lifestyle. A former gymnast, Lynne is an avid surfer, runner, horseback rider and kick-boxer – and she has the toned body to prove it. Lynne does her best to keep control of her outspoken teenage girls – Raquel, 18, and Alexa, 16 – but her desire to be a friend to them often interferes with her lackluster disciplinary efforts. Lynne’s laid-back philosophy on life flows into her lax parenting style: “I want to be the cool mom… I don’t want to say no.”

Meanwhile old friendships are becoming strained with the other housewives as a rift begins to form between longtime friends and neighbors, Jeana and Vicki. Jeana defends Vicki’s ex-husband, prompting Vicki to yell, “Don’t you dare defend him. He never gave me a dollar in child support or helped me a minute.” Jeana feels differently: “I always felt Vicki took the children by moving from Chicago, and how could he be a good father when she took them to California.”

    I cant believe she is 52 (according to the web) she looks about 40, and should be proud of her age. She looks foolish not admitting it & making such a big deal about it.
    I have teenagers, and would be so embarrassed if mine behaved like her oldest daughter. She is spoiled and disrespectful. Lynne should worry about being a parent 1st & then being her kids friends 2nd. I do like that she does not like the drama that goes on w/ the rest of the cast.

    I think that no matter who leaves the O.C she will be missed and I am really happy to see Lynne join the gang. But I think Vikki needs to relax and back off the new girls, her inability to let girls join is so rude, but she says she is so sophisticated and up on the manners well I’ve never seen any like hers, and Tamra is playing both sides of the fence.. talk’s crap when they are gone and apologizes to their face.. hence Gretchen and her at lunch and all the girls out to dinner digging her about going on vac-A while Jeff was in ICU.
    Tamra needs to pick a personality or get on some meds, bipolar is a treatable disorder. Yup the truth may hurt.. Play nice girls..

    That sun is apparenty taking a toll on Lynn’s skin. Anyone notice how dry she looks. She does need to watch the attitude around Vicki also. Vicki is very supportive of her kids and won’t take no lip off of Lynn about them.

  • 5. Mr. Rick  |  January 5, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    Quote: The new addition is Lynne Curtin, described in Bravo press materials as “a sexy, stay-at-home mother of two teenage girls.” Is there any other kind in Orange County? At least Curtin is a brunette. (Diversity!) She’s a former gymnast, doesn’t like to say no to her kids and has a strong jaw.” End of quote

    SO that is where she gets the pony face from?

    I love the new housewife and her family. The seem the most real and down to earth out of all the other blonde bimbos. Vicki needs to take chill-laxative and lay off everyone else. Gretchen is a sweetie and good to know that she is there for Jeff. Tamara needs to keep quiet about Gretchen going on vacation because she really does deserve the time off. How did Jeana even end up on the show? She doesn’t fit in; she’s fat and and ugly bitch who needs to use all that money of hers to get that mole removed. Lynne seems the most down to earth out of all of them. She’s my new favorite housewife and I think that her family is just so good looking, even their little wiener dog. The problems that her family and kids go through is similar to the real world, instead about fighting about who is going to get the most bad ass car they are fighting about clothes and straighteners (such girls). Frank seems like a great dad although I haven’t gotten to see much of him. The younger daughter Alexa is cute but I don’t know how or why she would put up with that boyfriend of hers that called her a stripper. The oldest daughter Raquel is just a riot, I love when she asked the waiter for alcohol, thats so something that I would do at that age. I am so happy that she got a cute car. Her choice was pretty humble, she wasn’t asking for a Hummer or something absurd like those Coto kids do. Her party seemed pretty mellow and real. I like her the most, such a real girl with a great sense of style. Looks like there’s going to be some mother daughter(s) drama with this family. Look forward to seeing the rest of the season!

    Lynn needs to use some sunscreen! She is a poster girl for staying out of the sun..who else wants to grow old with leather skin and freckles all over? Plastic surgery has not been kind to her…She is a laughing stock to me and all my friends when she acts like she looks so great! hahaha

  • 8. EJ  |  January 17, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    I really like Lynne a lot! What a breath of fresh air. She’s just a beachy California girl, in such great shape and seems sweet and down to earth. Big deal about her skin. She looks great.

  • 9. Annette  |  January 21, 2009 at 6:32 am

    Re: Mr. Rick;

    Why so down on Lynn? Your Vicki is ONLY nice to her own kids. She is RUDE and UGLY to everyone else! She and Tamra are an embarrassment! Also, stop insulting Lynn’s skin. Vicki has by far the worst skin – major adult acne! Vicki is obviously in dire need of a mental evaluation. Dump that B**** Donn! You could do sooooo much better! Hey Vicki – when your 15 minutes are over – what a bunch of crass, classless garbage will remain. Wow – your kids will be sooo proud!

  • 10. lucy  |  January 22, 2009 at 12:52 am

    laura sounds jealous of lynne like tamra and vicki so sad…..

  • 11. MT  |  January 22, 2009 at 5:43 am

    Lynne really annoys me when she said she’s obsess about being young… She is FAR from looking young.. Every time I look at her, I feel like pulling her skin on her face tighter! Gross!!! When she smiles, she looks like that wrinkle dog.. (forgot what it calls) and her daughters are so out of control. Lynne just let them walk all over her. Especially the 18 year-old one..she will be pregnant and drop out of school next episode. I can’t believe Lynne lets her 15 year-old daughter dress like a hooker.. WHAT IS WRONG WITH HER… She’s too ugly to be in the show…

  • 12. Ali  |  January 23, 2009 at 8:27 am

    Hi MT!!

    Please don’t talk about my friends like that!! Lynne actually looks great for her age!! You don’t see many people her age walking around look as great as she does. And you don’t know a thing about her daughters either. TV can portray people to be completely different than who they truly are. I happen to be Raquel’s (the 18 year old) best friend. She is the sweetest girl alive. You have never met her so you need to stop talking so badly about someone you don’t even know. As for Alexa (the 15 year old) she is also a very sweet and cute girl who doesn’t dress like a slut!! You don’t get to see the true people that they are when the cameras are off so until you have met them, please keep your mouth shut. The Curtains are a beautiful, kind and loving family!!

  • 13. Lynne Lover  |  January 23, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    Well, I absolutely ADORE Lynne and her family too. She has such a great physique and looks terrific for being 52 years old. I agree, she should not be ashamed at revealing her age. But I understand how she’d want to keep that private too, it’s no one’s business, really. I’m definitely excited that she’s on the show, and can’t wait to see more of her in future seasons, as well.

    As for Lynne’s daughters, they’re teenagers and expressing and finding out who they are. Who didn’t sneak and drink when they were underage themselves, c’mon. Like Lynne says, “I’m Over it!” Anyhoo, I think Alexa and Raquel are both beauties too, Raquel is like the spitting image of her mom.

    I cannot wait until Lynne has her swanky Cuff Luvv jewelry line out too.

  • 14. Lynne Lover  |  January 23, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Ohh, and one more thing…

    If Lynne should forgo the jewelry line venture, I think the next best thing would be for her to pen a book on how to “Stay Married and Keep it Exciting,” like she and Frank have. I’m astounded and in awe that they have stayed married for over 18 years. I think they are the cutest most sincere couple on the show too.

    Maybe we should get a housewives show rolling for the east coast because some of these O.C. women are lacking. I’m from Virginia Beach, and I can show you rich housewives that really do look fifteen years younger than their age. Some of these O.C. women are hefty and the others aged. There’s probably two hot ones in the whole group. What’s is up with the overweight kids too?

  • 16. what aa shame  |  January 29, 2009 at 3:31 am

    Lynne is a hideous looking mess. She’s haggard, drawn and dried up looking. She looks older than her true age of 53…what a waste of space and her kids are ugly, oily brats….

  • 17. lynne...ugh  |  January 29, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    I think Lynne a terrrible mother. And she is UGLY! I have no idea what the show was thinking adding this old haggered thing…..and her face and skin looks like leather. She needs to keep her mouth shut! “CUT”……….I was so irritated. If I had a friend act like that…..especially someone new….you would want to slap someone like that! And she wants to take Vickie “in the ring”….. good luck with that Lynne…she’d kick your undernorished a**! I really hope they don’t bring her back……she does not fit in at all………SHE IS FUGGLY!

  • 18. Ali  |  February 5, 2009 at 11:22 am

    Wow all you people picking on Lynne….Do you even know her? Know anything about her? Why are you all so obsessed? Lynne really does look good for her age, maybe she isn’t perfect, but SO WHAT!!! There is more to a person that just their physical appearance. She is one of the sweetest people I know and she is a great mother. TV can make people seem completely different from who they truly are. You are all sooo obsessed sitting here talking crap on her, you must be the insecure ones that are bored with your life!! Her daughters are sweethearts and may look a little oily when its 90 degrees out and have huge camera lights shining on them…!! Stop saying such rude and hurtful things about people you don’t even know! How would you like it if someone talked about how horrible and ugly you were?

  • 19. Sally  |  February 10, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    I have to wonder what the husbands think about all the housewives. Don gets slammed by Vicki and she is always traveling with out him. I am really surprised that they are still together.
    Tamra’s husband just seems to shut it out.
    Frank seems to be a nice guy and obvioulsy he and Lynne have a connection to be married 18 years. Sometimes watching the show is like teenagers in high school getting in their groups and talking about each other.
    All the kids are spoiled and need to work. A BMW for an 18th birthday, I wish.
    I miss Lauri.

  • 20. Marie  |  February 23, 2009 at 12:47 am

    sooo lynn makes jewerly and stays fit, what does frank do?

  • 21. Sandy  |  March 5, 2009 at 12:09 am

    Lynne, know that what I am about to say is from my heart and personal experience. On the wrap-up show you were made fun of because of your lay back personality and that you fade from conversations. Have you ever been checked for ADD? Many adults have ADD and there are things you can do to help yourself. Please think about this.

    Also, as a mother of two, you are doing nothing to help your girls but are making them co-dependent on you and your husband. Think about it…how can one ever appreciate anything if everything is handed to them? You are making a big mistake that will hurt your kids in the long run. Welcome to the OC!

  • 22. nikki  |  April 9, 2009 at 6:50 am

    Let me start by saying Lynn has had more than botox, just 2weeks ago she was in Vegas getting 5,000$ worth of face lifting done for free because she said she will “mention” the Dr.s name on the show. The only reason she even got on the show is because her friends daughter was on Laguna Beach season 3 and she met the casting people through her friend. When she found out she got the part on Real housewives of OC she went Nordstroms bought a fake wedding ring, channel watch and purses to make it look like her and her family have money. She spends about 4 dollars at most for each cuff and is selling them for 250,(take it from me i have 3 and they have all fallen apart) I hate these blogs and wasting my time on them but i have become so fed up with her and all her lies and people falling for her BS i had to come cleam and let u know the real lynn of the real house wives THANKS
