A tough year for a certain Real Housewives star continues to get worse.

Lynne Curtin  who appeared on Real Housewives of Orange County during Seasons 4 and 5  now faces a tax lien filed against her by the IRS, according to TMZ.

The IRS wants Lynne to fork over $32,006.24, which she apparently owes in tax money from back when she was on the show. Lynne joined Housewives in 2008 and parted ways with the show in 2010.

Lynne's rep says she didn't know about the tax lien but that her attorneys are looking into it. 

This comes after Lynne filed for divorce from husband Frank in December 2012 after 22 years of marriage. 

"I'm not a willing participant in this,” Frank said back in May 2012 about the couple's split. “It hurts to even think about it or talk about it. Call me old-fashioned, but I take my vows very seriously.”

At the time, Lynne explained the motive for her divorce by saying she wants to "go out on [her] own." It should be noted that Frank's name is reportedly not listed on the tax lien.

We wish Lynne all the best during this difficult time.
