A bench warrant has been issued for Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin and her husband Frank Curtin after the cash-strapped couple failed to appear for a court date in Riverside County, California on Tuesday.
According to TMZ.com, the reality star and her husband had been scheduled to appear in court yesterday to answer questions pertaining to a $1.2 million judgment they were previously ordered to pay to a former business partner. The Curtains failed to show.
A judge has now reportedly issued a bench warrant for their arrest.
It’s been a tough year for the once well-off Curtins. In August, they were reportedly evicted from their home for failing to pay rent.
The Orange County socialites — the first cast of Bravo hit reality franchise — have reportedly been hit hard by the global recession. “All of them have been very much affected by the economic situation,” the show’s executive producer Douglas Ross.
