At A Glance

Lisa Rinna was born July 11, 1965 in Newport Beach, California. The family later moved to Oregon when she was 7. While in Oregon, Lisa attended the University of Oregon.

After college, Rinna moved to Los Angeles where she modeled for the Wilhemina Agency.

In 1992, Lisa landed the part of Billie Reed on Days of our Lives before leaving in 1995. The following year, Rinna made a successful move to primetime soaps by landing a part on Aaron Spelling's Melrose Place.

Rinna was also seen in a fearless exhibition of motherhood when she posed nude and pregnant for the September 1998 issue of Playboy. The multipage spread was a beautiful embodiment of Rinna's sex appeal and genuine versatility. Rinna has consistently been recognized for her keen fashion sense. It is not uncommon for her name to appear at the top of a best-dressed list. She has graced the pages of such magazines as InStyle, People, and Entertainment Weekly, all of which have applauded Rinna for her unique and glamorous style.

In 1997, Lisa Rinna wed actor Harry Hamlin. The two, who had been introduced by a mutual friend, were told by a waiter on their first date that they were soul mates. In June of 1998, their daughter, Delilah Belle, was born, and in June of 2001 another daughter, Amelia Gray, was born.

Rinna and her family currently reside in Los Angeles.
