Biography

Lisa Deanna Rinna was born July 11, 1963 in Newport Beach, California to Frank and Lois Rinna, both of whom were artists. In 1970, her father received a job as an artistic director and moved the family to Oregon, where Rinna graduated from Medford Senior High School.

Rather than attending college, she moved to San Francisco to pursue a modelling career but struggled. In 1987, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting, and she soon found work in commercials and sitcoms.

In 1992, Rinna landed her big break on the TV soap opera Days of Our Lives. After a brief stint in primetime with a role on Melrose Place, she married actor Harry Hamlin. In 1998, while six months pregnant with her daughter Delilah Belle, she posed nude for the September 1998 issue of Playboy. In 2002, she was tapped to host the talk show SoapTalk for the cable network SOAPnet and returned to Days of Our Lives to reprise her role as Billie Reed.

In 2003, Rinna began her own chain of high-priced, high fashion boutique clothing stores, belle gray boutique in Los Angeles. She lives in Los Angeles with Hamlin and their two daughters, Delilah and Amelia Gray.
