Lynne Curtin will be a single woman in 2013.
The former The Real Housewives of Orange County star has filed for divorce from husband Frank Curtin, whom she's been married to for 22 years, TMZ reported.
Lynne reportedly filed the paperwork in OC Superior Court citing "irreconcilable differences" and is requesting spousal support.
The couple wed in April 1990 but announced they were separating in May of this year.
"I love Frank but it was time to go out on my own," Lynne, who has two children with Frank, told RadarOnline at the time. "Who knows what the future holds, but I'm looking forward to doing the things that I want to do."
Lynne confirmed she was leavingThe Real Housewives of Orange County in August 2010 after appearing on the reality show for its fourth and fifth seasons. Her departure was apparently not her own decision, as she said she was "broken hearted" and "so let down" by Bravo because of the way the network had dealt with her firing.
