With her exotic looks, prodigious talent, infectious energy and savvy business acumen, Lisa Rinna has become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. And along with that face, comes many memorable moments.
Rinna and husband Harry Hamlin recently starred in the TV Land original series, “Harry Loves Lisa” which focuses on the relationship between Lisa and Harry as they navigate through the highs and lows as a devoted family living a hectic Hollywood lifestyle.
Lisa is also an accomplished author. She released her second book, “Starlit” in September 2010. She delivers a revealing roman a clef about life on and off the red carpet. Filled with colorful characters, Hollywood insider details, scandalous backstabbing, and more than a few scenes – and villains – from Lisa’s real life, “Starlit” combines the fun of Days of Our Lives, Melrose Place, and US Weekly into one titillating Hollywood drama.
In May 2009, Lisa published her first book, “Rinnavation.” In the New York Times Best Seller, she divulges her diet and exercise secrets, gives advice on how to lead a happy, healthy life and shares her tips for maintaining physical and mental health in the hectic real world. In chapters that deal with issues affecting body, mind and spirit, she offers a practical and motivational advice on a wealth of topics.
Lisa has released a series of fitness DVDs for Warner Home Video called “Lisa Rinna: Dance Body Beautiful.” They include: “Jive, Jump, Ballroom Bump”, “Ballroom Learn and Burn”, “Ballroom Body Blast” and “Hip Hop Ballroom”. All DVDs feature a unique high energy cardio workout created by Lisa and “Dancing with the Stars” choreographer, Louis van Amstel.
Rinna recently served as host and fashion expert for TV Guide Network’s signature Red Carpet pre-shows at Hollywood’s biggest events, including the Academy Awards®, Emmy® Awards, Grammy® Awards, Golden Globe® Awards and Screen Actor’s Guild™ Awards.
Lisa starred as Roxie Hart alongside her husband Harry Hamlin in the hit Broadway musical, Chicago. Before joining the Broadway cast on June 19, 2007, Rinna performed with the Chicago National Tour.
Lisa’s hosting credits include Oxygen’s hair competition Tease and co-host of SOAPnet’s daily talk show Soap Talk from 2002-2006, where she was nominated for 4 Daytime Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Talk Show Host”.
She also competed on the hit ABC series, Dancing with the Stars and participated in the national Dancing with the Stars tour.
In the realm of television, few can boast such an enduring and prolific career as small-screen queen Lisa Rinna. Lisa is known to many as Billie Reed, the free-spirited character she played on NBC’s daytime hit Days of Our Lives throughout the 90’s and in 2002. Lisa also starred as “love-to-hate-her” Taylor McBride on Fox’s long-running primetime smash, Melrose Place. Lisa was also seen in a recurring role on the edgy new UPN drama series Veronica Mars portraying one half of a “movie star” couple, opposite real-life husband, Harry Hamlin. She also hosted the hour-long reality series for Lifetime Television entitled Merge, which focused on newly married couples trying to create a home that blends elements of each person’s past. Lisa was also seen as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood.
Lisa starred in the Lifetime Original movie, Sex, Lies and Obsession, opposite husband Harry Hamlin. Her previous Lifetime film, Another Woman’s Husband, boasted one of the highest ratings for any film ever on the network. Additional television credits include a guest spot on the ABC comedy series 8 Simple Rules, the NBC series The Hogan Family, and an episode of Movie Stars for the WB, the first ever on-screen appearance she shared opposite her husband. In 2007 Lisa appeared as Donna Devaney, who plays a love interest of Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), in HBO’s Emmy Nominated Series Entourage.
In 2002, Lisa also served as a frequent guest host opposite Regis Philbin, with eight appearances during the Live with Regis search for his new permanent co-host. Although Kelly Ripa wound-up with the assignment, the well-received “Regis” appearances caught the attention of the executives at SoapNet, which led to the development of her own successful talk show, Soap Talk, as well as Lifetime’s “Merge.”
In May, 2002 Lisa embraced her life-long love of fashion, and opened her own women’s clothing boutique, BELLE GRAY, named after daughter’s Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray. Since opening the doors in the heart of Sherman Oaks, California, Lisa’s trend-setting store became one of Los Angeles’ must-stop shopping destinations, with the influential fashion insider magazine The Daily, naming Lisa “The New Face of L.A. Retail,” during the Fall, 2003 LA Fashion Week. Lisa has since moved her line to QVC as the ‘Lisa Rinna Collection‘.
In 2014, Lisa found herself in another new and exciting role. She joined the cast of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” for season 5, alongside castmates: Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Eileen Davidson, Yolanda Foster, Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards.
Rinna is a native of Medford, Oregon and loves outdoor activities. A fitness fanatic, she also enjoys yoga, skiing and tennis. Lisa resides in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters.
