Biography

Perhaps best known for the preternatural plumpness of her lips, Lisa Rinna managed to prove that there could be life after ruling briefly as a daytime soap opera diva. Craving the spotlight from an early age, Rinna initially intended to pursue acting after high school but worked as a model for several years instead. Bored with life on the runway, Rinna made the move to Hollywood, eventually joining the cast of the venerable daytime soap "Days of our Lives" (NBC, 1965- ) in 1992 as the volatile Billie Reed, quickly becoming a fan favorite during her short tenure. Four years later, Rinna graduated to primetime, where she chewed the scenery on "Melrose Place" (FOX, 1992-99) as the conniving Taylor McBride. Shortly after joining the primetime melodrama, Rinna married actor Harry Hamlin, best known for his run on the landmark series "L.A. Law" (NBC, 1986-1994). Post-"Melrose," Rinna took on host duties for shows like "SoapTalk" (SOAPnet, 2002-06) and tripped the light fantastic on "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ), culminating with her own reality series "Harry Loves Lisa" (TV Land, 2010- ). While not boasting one of the more diverse résumés in Hollywood, Rinna secured herself a place in the pantheon of media "personalities," so ubiquitous in American 21st Century pop-culture.
