RHOC's Lynne Curtin (on RHOC Past, Present Future & "Cuffs")

Everyone always asks us who are the nicest Housewives ever? Lynne Curtin is definitely on that list. Are y’all loving the new season of RHOC or longing for the vintage days of yesteryear? Check out this chat with had with Lynne back in what can now be considered vintage BTVR…The Real Housewives of Orange County's Lynne Curtin Steps Behind The Rope. Checking in from beautiful and sunny Orange Country, Lynne is here for some fun. Some fun and to tell it all. Let us start at the beginning. Lynne takes us back to when she was first cast to step behind the gates of Coto de Caza in Season Four of the hit Bravo show. Lynne walks us through how she was cast on RHOC, who she knew before being cast and some of the story lines we saw regarding her life as they played out on national television. We also discuss how Lynne handled her newfound fame and the ramifications it had on her personal life. We discuss how The Real Housewives of Orange Country has changed since the early days and how reality tv, in general, is a whole new landscape in the modern age. Of course we discuss the status of Lynne's current relationships with other OC staples such as Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Jeana Keough, Gretchen Rossi, Lydia McLaughlin, Emily Simpson, Heather Dubrow, Lizzie Rovsek, and the Peggys Sulahian and Tanous. We also talk about the times she has crossed paths with Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Stephanie Hollman. It is the OC after all, so we had to get Lynne’s takes on her “friendships” with Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow. We couldn’t resist asking for #tea when we learned that her daughters knew some of the cast of Laguna Beach. It really is a small world. We discuss the departure of Vicki and Tamra and the current casting choices. Finally, no chat with Lynne Curtin would ever be complete without a discussion of her iconic, classic, one of a kind "Lynne Curtin Cuffs". Grab your oranges and kick back for a fun filled episode with the one and only Lynne Curtin.@lynnecurtindesigns_@behindvelvetrope@davidyontef
