We're learning quite a bit of piping hot tea this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa Rinna and new Beverly Hills Housewife Denise Richards have quite the connection as both their husbands, Harry Hamlin and Aaron Phypers, respectively, were once married to actress Nicollette Sheridan (Harry and Nicollette from 1991 to 1992, and Aaron and Nicollette from 2015 to 2018).
But that wasn't the only dirt Lisa spilled. According to Lisa, Harry and Nicollette's 11-month marriage ended after she went to a Michael Bolton concert at the Hollywood Bowl and left with the Grammy Award-winning singer. Harry was away in Canada at the time. "I thank Michael Bolton to this day, are you kidding me?" Lisa told her fellow Beverly Hills Housewives during the February 19 episode (clip above). "Let's cheers Michael Bolton."
Nicollette later shot down claims that that was how her marriage to Harry ended. "FAKE NEWS! Harry and I ended our marriage nose to nose in Canada...Michael was a long time friend that was invited to our wedding," she tweeted on February 22. "Happy Harry found happiness with housewife."
Harry then responded to Nicollette's tweet. "Re Fake News! What’s it called when your wife of one year suddenly goes to bed with a pop singer? ...two weeks after your mother dies??" he tweeted on February 23. "I did a lotta stuff with my wife 'nose to nose' but ending our marriage was not one of them!"
Lisa also had a sassy clapback for Nicollette. "Sweetie @IamNicollette You’re the gift that keeps on giving!" she tweeted.
Nicollette tweeted once again to Harry, saying that she appreciated that he's supporting his wife, "but the end of our marriage had nothing to do with anyone other than us. Sad you still can’t own your part."
Neither Harry nor Lisa have responded to Nicollette's last tweet posted on February 23, so it appears that these three might just have to agree to disagree for now. Still, this does beg the question: What does Michael Bolton have to say about all this?
Lisa actually recounted a similar story about the end of Harry and Nicollette's marriage in Season 5 of RHOBH while talking about how she first met her husband. Lisa also shared that she did get to thank Michael Bolton once in person when she ran into him at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel years ago. "So I go over. I go, 'I just have to thank you from the bottom of my heart because if it weren't for you I would not have these beautiful girls, I would not have my husband, and thank you,'" Lisa said during the episode.
Of course, Harry has found everlasting love in Lisa. The couple will celebrate their 22nd wedding anniversary on March 29. Lisa and Harry have two children together, daughters Delilah Belle Hamlin and Amelia Gray Hamlin.
