The face on Lynne Curtin? Not real.
The situations she and her castmates on The Real Housewives of Orange County find themselves in? Also not real.
The legal problems now facing Curtin and husband Frank? Very real.
The pair were scheduled to appear in a California courtroom yesterday to answer questions regarding a $1.2 million judgment they've been ordered to pay to a former business partner... but the couple simply bailed on the proceedings.
As a result, TMZ reports a judge has issued a bench warrant for Lynne and Frank's arrest. Unlike the ridiculous exploits on Curtin's scripted reality show, this is actually a serious matter.
In August, meanwhile, Lynne and Frank were evicted from their home for failing to pay rent.
We can think of at least one New Year's resolution for Curtin: focus more on your family than on fame. This is a novel concept for any supposedly Real Housewife, we know.
But give it a shot.
