Harry Hamlin Dishes On Marriage To Lisa Rinna; Says They Are “Not Helicopter Husband And Wife”

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is delivering big time this season. Not only is “puppy gate” still causing tons of drama, but Lisa Rinna is back to her pot-stirring ways. She tweeted a birthday message to co-star (and sparring partner) Lisa Vanderpump. It was a picture of a cupcake with some pills. Of course, Rinna was referencing her own joke “bag of pills.” Unfortunately, some fans thought that Rinna was referencing Lisa’s brother’s overdose death. Rinna said that she didn’t know that Lisa’s brother died from an overdose. That is so awkward.

But who is always in Rinna’s corner? Her husband Harry Hamlin. In the past, he denied that his wife put Xanax in smoothies. Good to know. When a Twitter feud erupted between Rinna and Harry’s former wife, Nicollette Sheridan, Harry once again defended Rinna. Fun fact: Nicollette was also married to Aaron Phypers. Aaron had to wait for his divorce from Nicollette to be finalized so he could marry RHOBH newbie Denise Richards.

In an article in US Weekly, Harry breaks down the reasons that his marriage to Rinna works. “So we have a very functional relationship and we respect each other and listen to each other and admire each other and we let each other be. We’re not helicopter husband and wife,” Harry explained. In other words, they give each other space without intruding on each other.

“I have no idea why opposites attract but we are completely and utterly opposite. But I love to cook and she doesn’t, so we all get fed as a result of that. I have no interest in pop culture and she does so whatever I know about pop culture I get from her. As far as the science stuff goes, she’s marginally into that but she’s very busy with all the things that she’s doing,” Harry stated.

RHOBH viewers know that Harry likes to go off into the wilderness and be alone for days at a time. Rinna was hating on the tent that Harry uses because it is too small, and bugs can get in that thing. And Harry’s wife enjoys wiping down every inch of her hotel room with antibacterial wipes. Oh, Rinna. You two are indeed opposites.

This acting duo tied the knot in 1997. Harry told US Weekly, “Lisa and I are of the same mind. When you get married, you get married.” This is Harry’s third marriage. He was married previously to Nicollette and Laura Johnson. “This is my third time at it, but it wasn’t … the two times before that it disappeared, the marriages disappeared was not for lack of trying on my part,” Harry remarked. Harry and Rinna share two daughters, Delilah Hamlin and Amelia Hamlin, who have both appeared on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, the sisters are rumored to be pursuing a deal for their own reality show.

Rinna and Harry do seem to have a pretty stable relationship. But how amazing would it be if Bravo added Nicollette to RHOBH?
