Harry Hamlin Says Parents Gave Him Playboy Subscription At Age 11

What the Real Housewives of Bevery Hills needs is a good shake up. And by shake-up I don’t mean new cast members. Thankfully they’ve already dumped Teddi Mellencamp. (Just saying). But I’m over watching the ladies gang up on one unsuspecting housewife season after season, after season. Hello Lisa Vanderpump, Denise Richards, and Garcelle Beauvais. It’s not fun to watch middle-aged women play mean girls. That was so Lindsay Lohan ago.

What we really need on RHOBH? Is more Harry Hamlin. I need more of his cooking, camping, gardening, and doomsday prepping. Like when do I get to taste his famous spaghetti sauce? Bravo needs to take a page out of Netflix’s handbook and post the recipe in their credits. A la The Office’s Kevin’s famous chili. Amiright? I do not, however, want to taste his blueberry pie. I’m sure it’s made with blueberries he no doubt grew from seed. However, I will eat nothing that’s baked in a rat infested oven. But I digress.

Harry gives the Dos XX most interesting man in the world a run for his money. Is there nothing the man cannot do? Kyle Richards doesn’t think so. Even his own wife, Lisa Rinna, only refers to him by his first and last name. As if there could ever be another Harry Hamlin. Woman please.

Recently, Harry was interviewed by Andy Cohen for Interview Magazine. In which, we learned some interesting tidbits, like the fact that Harry does not have erectile disfunction. Of course he doesn’t. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. Anyone?

Andy also found out that Harry had a subscription to Playboy at an early age. Of course he did. His parents bought him a five year subscription when he was only 11-years-old. As you do.

Andy thought Harry‘s must have been the cool parents. “Or how surprising, to give an 11-year-old five years of Playboy. Why did they give you that subscription?”

Harry‘s parents weren’t quite a cool as Andy thought. Harry explained that they, “might have thought that I was going to go in the other direction. My brother didn’t get a subscription to Playboy, and he was two-and-a-half years older than I.” Now that’s interesting parenting methodology. Can’t say I’ve heard of that one before.

It certainly shaped Harry into one well-rounded, and decidedly heterosexual human with “a thing for beautiful women.” Can’t argue with the result now, can we.
