If you haven’t been following Lisa Rinna on social media lately than yes, we will say it: you have been missing out. Not only is the reality television and soap actress star utterly gorgeous, but she’s funny and she is one celebrity who knows how to poke fun at herself. But at the same time, she’s someone who is fiercely loyal to her family and very proud of her daughters, Delilah and Amelia. A day doesn’t go by that Lisa doesn’t share photos of these two stunning beauties as they continue to work hard to make names for themselves in the celebrity and entertainment worlds.
With that being said, Lisa isn’t just about fashion, beauty and showing off her luxurious lifestyle and getaways on social media. Ok, that’s one half of what we see, but there is also so much that we can learn from this Days of Our Lives alumni. She’s smart, she’s witty, and she’s been raising her family in the spotlight for just as long as Kris Jenner and Yolanda Hadid. And yes, she is also the one Real Housewife star that we would definitely want to sit down and chat with about motherhood. Here are 20 reasons why.
20 School Always Comes First
For Lisa’s two daughters, Amelia and Delilah, it would be very easy for them to become famous celebrities. After all, both of their parents are huge television stars. But Lisa didn’t want them to focus on their careers or celebrity life. Instead, she always emphasized that school should come first. Talk about a smart mama, right? Delilah once said back in 2016, “I’m going into my senior year, so it’s exciting, but college apps are so stressful. I have no idea how I’m going to balance modeling and school, but my agency knows I’m still a student, and they really care about that.”
19 Lisa Doesn’t Believe In Nepotism
So many celebrities love to give their children a helping hand, especially when it comes to their Hollywood or modeling careers. But that wasn’t the case with Lisa, her husband Harry Hamlin and their two daughters. Lisa simply doesn’t believe in nepotism. “My mom didn’t let me model until I was 17. She knew the culture and the industry because she’s been in it for so long, and she didn’t really want me to get in it too early. She wanted me to mature more and understand things more, and not be so naïve going into it. It is a difficult culture with body type and body image, and she wanted me to wait until I was older,” explains Delilah on her family’s desire to hold off on celebrity stardom.
18 Lisa Believes Passion And Drive Will Help Forge Their Own Careers
If there is one thing that Lisa Rinna has in common with Kris Jenner (ok, make that two things in common as they are both reality television stars), it’s that passion and drive will help forge their own careers. In other words, Lisa is proud of the fact that her two girls are very hard workers. They wake up in the morning, they show up to work on time, and they put in the hours, regardless of how long they are. And most importantly, they don’t complain about it, too. They know they are fortunate to be where they are, especially with their parents’ support.
17 Delilah Belle’s Anxiety Issues
Lisa has always been very open about her girls and how she has always supported them, even with all of the ups and downs that come with this rollercoaster we call life. She’s always been extremely supportive of her two daughters, and especially when they needed their mama the most. Lisa once said on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, “She had strep throat and three days later she said to me, ‘I’m not getting on the bus to go to school.’ We had to have a doctor come to the house. She would not leave the house. She was instantly agoraphobic.”
16 Lisa Doesn’t Believe In Changes
There is a reason why Lisa Rinna looks exactly the same way she did almost two decades ago: the actress and reality star doesn’t believe in changes. And that isn’t really a bad thing, mind you. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star once appeared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live sporting a totally different hairstyle. Needless to say, she didn’t feel very comfortable with it, and neither did her fans. That’s why Lisa Rinna simply sticks with what works for her – even if it means she doesn’t get to experience in different trends or styles very often.
15 She Doesn't Take Herself Seriously As A Celebrity
One of the biggest reasons why fans love Lisa Rinna so much is that unlike many other reality stars and celebrities in her position, she doesn’t take herself too seriously. She’s been in the business long enough to know that most of it is smoke and mirrors. She likes to engage with her social media followers and have fun by seeing the brighter, more positive things in life. She knows that there’s no reason to hold on to grudges or live in the past when there is so much to look forward to in the future. At least, that’s her mantra and for Lisa, it seems to be working well in her favor.
14 She’s An Eco-Mama
A lot of people probably don’t know this about Lisa Rinna, but she’s an eco-mama. She believes in doing what’s best for the environment, which includes taking care of Mother Earth and reducing your carbon footprint as much as possible. Lisa said this, “There's so many things happening with computers and what-not, where we may be able to live until 150 and even longer, but if the planet's not here for us to live on it, if we [heat] ourselves out from global warming and everything else, if we don't figure that out, if we don't figure out an alternative form of energy, I think we're in big [...] trouble.”
13 She Admits To Challenges
While Lisa’s life might look like it’s very luxurious and easy from the outside, it’s not always like that from within. As a matter of fact, the daytime television star often likes to remind her fans that she too has her challenges in her life. She reads all the books, she listens to all of the good advice and she tries to apply everything she’s learned to her own life. Lisa once said, “Kids are a lesson every day, and being married is a lesson every day, but I think having a boutique and running it with my husband and having our careers and raising children was something that was really an eye-opener all the time.”
12 Married 21 Years
According to Lisa’s husband Harry Hamlin, marriage is hard work, but there isn’t a person on this planet who wouldn’t agree. There aren’t many couples in Hollywood who survive the two-year mark, yet Lisa and Harry have been going strong for 21 years. The actor recently admitted that they are constantly working on their marriage. It takes two to tango and Harry and Lisa want to dance until the very end. He told Page Six, “We put a lot of time in therapy and talking and reading books and trying to figure out how to create a foundation for a family.”
11 She’s Very Proud Of Her Beautiful Daughters
When it comes to the Hamlin family, it’s without a doubt that they’ve got some very beautiful genes. Lisa has made it no secret that she is very proud of her daughters and their undeniable beauty, which is one of the reasons why they have been taking the modeling world by storm. Speaking about her mother’s best lesson, Delilah told Teen Vogue, “Probably, ‘Stay true to yourself.’ I know it’s cheesy, but it’s important. I always go to my mom for fashion advice, but I don’t know if I should! Before I leave the house, I always ask, ‘Is this cute?’ And she says, ‘You always look cute.’ And I’m like, ‘Seriously, I need to know! Is this cute?’"
10 They Are Nothing Like The Kardashians
When it comes to the Hamlin family, they are nothing like the Kardashians or the other celebrity clans in the entertainment business. That’s because they don’t focus on the negative and they certainly know how to ignore the naysayers out there. What’s more, Harry, Lisa and the girls all show and give each other respect. They also listen to one another. “The best piece of advice my dad has given me in regards to my career is ‘what other people think of you is none of your business.’ Not only does this apply to my career, but it has been so helpful in my daily life, as well!” Delilah revealed.
9 She Doesn’t Cross The Line On Reality TV
When it comes to the Real Housewives, there’s no doubt that we’ve seen it all – from cat fights to tables being hurled across the room and so much more in between. But Lisa’s not like that. She keeps things classy. What’s more, she also knows that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has helped put their family on the celebrity map. “I feel as though some of the experiences I've had wouldn't have been possible without the show’s exposure. I was able to have a long meeting with an amazing fashion magazine. This was probably one of the coolest moments I've had on the show because I got to meet so many iconic and smart people,” her daughter Delilah once said.
8 She Doesn’t Like To Pass Judgement
While there are a lot of celebrities out there that like to gossip and snarl and say things behind each other’s back, Lisa Rinna is not like that at all. She doesn’t like to pass judgment. What’s more, she also wants to be a positive role model for her daughters. The television beauty knows that they are always watching her and that’s why she has to watch what she says at all times. Lisa said, “I find that we must be careful not to judge or [...] on anything other than ourselves. I am living and learning this still!”
7 Her Family Doesn’t Make Controversial Headlines
Can you remember the last time Lisa Rinna or any members of her family made controversial headlines like some other reality stars and celebrities out there? Nope, we can’t either. That’s because Lisa and her girls really are the classy bunch of Hollywood. There’s no controversy. There’s no drama. And there’s certainly no need to put everything about themselves out there on social media. Lisa has taught her daughters that the best thing to do is focus on separating their personal lives from their professional lives. And so far it seems to be working well for them as no one is getting in trouble.
6 You Can Feel The Love Between Harry And Lisa
As mentioned above, there aren’t many celebrity couples that last in the entertainment industry. Yet, Harry and Lisa have done an amazing job of keeping their marriage alive for well over two decades. You can’t say that about a lot of other celebrity couples. “We’re still firing on all cylinders after 26 or 27 years,” Harry said of their relationship, according to Page Six. “It simply comes down to — we really like each other and we’re complete opposites. We never get tired of each other’s stories. Lisa is a master of social media and pop culture. My real interests are the [...]scientific.”
5 She Truly Is Funny
Lisa Rinna might be known as a famous daytime television star, but she really has great comedic timing. Anyone who has been following her on social media will know that she is one of the funniest women on the Internet. She loves to share hilarious memes, poke fun of her famous “lips” or some of the things that she’s said on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She’s also pretty knowledgeable about all things pop culture and likes to keep up with different social media trends. Yes, we will go ahead and say it: Lisa Rinna is that cool mom that we want to desperately befriend.
4 She’s A Supportive Mom
Lisa has had a lot of roles in her life, but the one that is most important to her is her role as a mother. According to The Nest, Lisa puts it this way, “But I tell them, girls, listen: Whatever you hear at school, from your friends, it's always going to be the wrong information. If you really want to know something, you have to come ask me. I think it is so very important to get the right information to your kids, whether they wanna hear it or not. But also, I don't think it's necessarily right to just tell them things unless they ask you, so there's a fine line.”
3 Raising Teens In Los Angeles
Raising a family in the Hollywood spotlight isn’t always easy, but Lisa managed to do a very good job of it. Her girls are smart, they are hard workers and they are modest, too. Lisa puts it this way, “I find that life just gets in the way and it gets so busy and there's so much chaos and stress that can come along with raising two teenage girls in Los Angeles and being married and working and, you know, everything that goes along with it. It's how do you find those calm moments because everybody has this in their life.”
2 Feeling The Faith
Believe it or not, Lisa Rinna has always strongly believed in keeping the faith, even though her own family never followed a particular religion. But for Lisa, she always believed in belonging to something, regardless of what religion or church it was. For the reality television star, it’s how she finds her peace. Lisa said, “I used to go to church when I was younger. My parents didn't go to church, but my friends all went to church and I loved going to church - I would go every Sunday with somebody. My parents used to think it was funny.”
1 She Sees The Beauty From Within
Lisa might be known as one of the most beautiful women in the world, but it’s the inner beauty that counts for her, and not what you see on the outside. She is also very honest about the story behind her lips. Lisa said (according to Brainy Quotes): “Here's the story: 25 years ago, I had my lips injected with silicone. Stupid thing to do at 24. I saw 'Beaches.' Remember that movie 'Beaches'? I did it with my best girlfriend, so she and I go and we get our lips done. Fine. I have it like that for my whole career, right? So then cut to a couple of years ago, I have a doctor remove as much as they possibly can because it got to the point where they were yucky. You know, they get hard. It's gross. They are now whatever that was after they took out as much of the silicone as they could.”
