Harry Hamlin knows his relationship with Lisa Rinna is special — even outside of Hollywood’s standards.
The actor, 67, called their 21-year marriage a “miracle” in Lapalme’s winter issue, on which he’s the cover star.
“We’re still firing on all cylinders after 26 or 27 years,” he said of their relationship. “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 political and scientific.”
Still, he confessed that they constantly work on their marriage, saying: “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.”
Hamlin and Rinna, 55, tied the knot in 1997 and share two daughters, Delilah Belle, 20, and Amelia Gray, 17. He was previously married to Nicollette Sheridan and Laura Johnson, and shares son Dimitri, 38, with Ursula Andress.
And while Hamlin, best known for his role on “L.A. Law,” hasn’t dabbled much in the Bravo realm, he fully supports Rinna’s role on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and the impact it’s had on his popularity.
“Lisa uses my full name on the show,” he noted. “When people say on the street, ‘Harry Hamlin, nice to meet you,’ I know it’s from Bravo. It depends on how old they are, how they know me or if they watched ‘Mad Men.’ It’s a bifurcated world now – the ‘Real Housewives’ audience doesn’t know ‘Mad Men.’ If you’re under 30, you never saw ‘L.A Law.’”
He also praised his wife for her infamous fight with Kim Richards during the show’s fifth season in 2015.
“I forget what Kim said. I think she implied that I’d done something out of the marriage, Lisa went ballistic over that. I was very proud of her. I wonder what I’d do in that same position. We had a beautiful Rottweiler named Lola at the time. So we posted on Twitter that I was chasing after Lola. The hashtag was ‘#WhatdidHarrydo.’ I don’t think that blow up was a set-up. I think Kim had personal issues with other things. I’ve watched that show that’s about a reality show – ‘UnReal’ – those producers always trying to get them to do horrible things. But I’ve never seen them do any of this on Housewives or with Lisa.”
