She's a veteran of soap operas—just like her new co-star Eileen Davidson!—but since signing on to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Rinna says the experience was an eye-opening one.
"Quite honestly, it sort of feels like being on a roller coaster," she tells the Dish. "You know, some scary moments and then times I want to scream my head off, but overall that thrilling feeling of being on a wild adventure."
So what can we expect now that she's joined the six other women? "You can expect quite and explosive season," she says. "If I say anymore than that, I would definitely be giving away too much!"
As for her relationships among the other stars, Lisa says she has strong bonds with most of them. "Well, since I have known Eileen Davidson, Yolanda Foster, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards the longest, I'd say they're definitely the ones I'm closest to."
Prior to joining Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa broke out playing the character Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives and Taylor McBride on Melrose Place. Recently, she's participated in Sing Your Face Off and All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. The author of three books (including a New York Times best-seller), she is married to Mad Men star Harry Hamlin and raises two daughters (Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray) in Beverly Hills.
