'Real Housewives of OC' Star

I'M BROKE AS HELL

Former "Real Housewives of OC" star Lynne Curtin is broke ... broke ass broke ... claiming she only has $100 to her name, this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ. 

Curtin just filed new court papers in her divorce from Frank Curtin -- and it seems like she's making a serious play for spousal support, 'cause she claims to have virtually no money left. 

According to the docs, Curtin says she only has $100 in total assets. She also claims she only earns $250 dollars a month -- or $3,000 a year -- as the owner of her own jewelry business. 

Just for comparison, the poverty level for a single person in the U.S. is $11,490 a year.

As for her expenses, Curtin claims she lives a pretty meager life these days, dropping only $515 per month. Here's how the monthly spending breaks down:

$150 - eating out
$115 - telephone and email
$  50 - laundry
$100 - clothes
$100 - entertainment

We broke the story, Curtin -- who appeared in seasons 4 & 5 of the show -- filed for divorce from her husband Frank back in December. 

In her court papers, Lynne says she had to get a loan just to pay her lawyer.  Also ...there's the little matter of $30,000 in unpaid taxes from 2009 ... she says that's Frank's problem, too.

We reached out to Lynne for comment -- so far, no word back.

She'll do what every other pseudo celebrity is doing these days-file for bankruptcy, get all her debts removed, and start spending again.

Get a reality show, get a divorce. That's how it works. Maybe she should go and get a JOB or start hanging around country club bars in hopes of snagging some rich dude with her "plasticware."

I don't feel sorry for you.
I saw you spend all kinds of money on the show even while you were being evicted from your home.
You, your husband AND you daughters are BRATS.
May you take this opportunity to learn from your mistakes and WORK for what you want.

If you have no money, wtf are you spending money on clothes, restaurants, and entertainment? $50 on laundry. How many quarters are you using honey? Why are you buying new clothes? Why not go to your local store and get some Ramen Noodles and hot dogs? And if you must, go to Redbox instead of paying $18 to see Gravity in Imax. THIS IS BS

She's a wack. They were renting a house they couldn't afford and yet she had plastic surgery. He was trying to keep them in the lap of luxury that was well over their head.
