Another one bites the dust!

Former "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Lynne Curtin has thrown in the towel on her 22-year marriage to husband Frank. Citing the popular "irreconcilable differences," the jewelry designer has filed the paperwork to make her split official.

News of the couple's demise fist started in May when Lynne announced that they had decided to separate. At the time she told Radar Online, "After more than 20 years of marriage Frank and I have decided to go our separate ways. I love Frank but it was time to go out on my own. Who knows what the future holds, but I'm looking forward to doing the things that I want to do."

The couple are parents to two daughters - Raquel, 24, and Alexa, 21. Their financial problems as a couple were chronicled on the fourth and fifth seasons of the hit Bravo reality romp culminating with the family being served with an eviction notice.

This was an extremely difficult decision that, as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family. We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us." The couple has one daughter, Bryn, 2.
