Harry Hamlin on His Clothing-Store Break-in: “The alarm company called the wrong police department!’

For Harry Hamlin, it was a case of no L.A. law—to save his tony boutique from being burgled, that is.

Interviewed on Milling About with wife Lisa Rinna—stars of the new TV Land reality series Harry Loves Lisa—the L.A. Law hunk reveals how, on Oct. 4, thieves managed to make off with more than $100,000 worth of clothing and accessories from their Belle Gray store in Studio City.

CAPTION: "It's like calling 911 and being on hold for 10 minutes," Harry (above with Lisa) says of trying to report a crime in L.A.County.

“Most stores get burgled eventually, particularly on Ventura Boulevard, where we are. We were burgled when we first opened, three times, right away. We had windows then that were shatterable and we now have bullet-proof glass in the entire store,” Harry, who’s also got a new memoir out, titled Full Frontal Nudity, tells host Robin Milling.

“They were able to break down the front door yesterday. You couldn’t get through the glass but you could break the door down.”

“A lot of people on Ventura Boulevard have those gates that come down. We never really wanted to go there because they’re ugly. And we probably were just stupid Continue reading

Lisa Rinna: Not Getting Buff Before Posing in the Buff ‘Freaked Me Out’

If Lisa Rinna isn’t as ripped as usual these days, blame Hugh Hefner.

Interviewed on The Fitness Buff Show, the Melrose Place star recounts how, when prepping to shoot a layout for the May issue of Playboy – in which she appears as Anne Bancroft’s Mrs. Robinson character in The Graduate – she was asked to put her fitness regmin on hold.


“It was really empowering and I’m glad I did it,” Lisa (above) tells us of her nudie shoot.

“It freaked me out. Because when I knew we were going to do it, I said, ‘I’ve got to starve myself and I’ve got to work out twice a day – double up my workouts,'” the 45-year-old mother of two tells host Pete Williams.

“And [photographer] Deborah Anderson knew that was where my brain would go. Because obviously any woman who’s going to take her clothes off is going to think that way. And she said, ‘Lisa, I don’t want you to starve yourself, darling. And I don’t want you to work out.’

“And I was like, ‘What?!’

“She said, ‘I want you to look soft and feminine. That is what Playboy is about. And I don’t want you to look hard and muscular and sinewy’ – like she knows I can get.

“I’m really glad I listened to her because those photos might not have been as attractive. They might’ve been scary looking.”
