Lisa Rinna getting naked in Playboy is just one of the projects the 45-year-old mother has going lately. Lisa Rinna seems to be in demand these days. Ever since she did “Dancing with the Stars,” it looks as if her career has been resurrected and caught fire. Every time you turn the television on, she seems to on a red carpet somewhere, and not as a commentator for TV Guide Channel, either.
When asked if the rumors of her going nude for Playboywere true, Rinna told Extra, “I’m the worst liar on the planet. I can’t lie, so…I think that could be a yes.”
And there is good reason for Lisa Rinna to grace the pages of Playboy, as anyone who saw her near nude dance routines on “Dancing With The Stars” can attest. She’s hot.
This is great news for the Playboy collector. Ten years ago, Lisa Rinna tastefully posed nude even though she was pregnant. The new shoot could also be good news for the failing men’s magazine. They could publish a reprint of the old issue and then offer the magazines separately or in a two-pack.
That might be stretching Rinna’s fame just a bit, but who knows?
Rinna has been talking “Melrose Place” reunion in her last few interviews. The way the rumors are flying, there has got to be something in the works. Rumors of a “Melrose Place” reunion movie have led to talk of a “Melrose Place” spinoff – with many of the same characters. Hollyscoop reported that, when asked if she would like to be included in the cast, Rinna said, “Sure, hell, why not? Of course I would. I love that show. I’d love to be apart of it.”
But “Melrose Place: Ten Years Later” is still in its formative stages (perhaps). While she waits for that, Rinna has talked herself into a reality show with TV Land. She said she convinced her husband, Harry Hamlin, to do it and says it will be like a “21st Century ‘I Love Lucy.'”
(Ohhhhh, Ricky… so it ain’t so…)
So what is it called? “I Love Lisa,” of course.
Hollyscoop reported that she described the show thus: “Hilarity will ensue. It has to do with me and my husband and our lives and everything else. It will show our lives, which are just like anyone else’s’ yet we aren’t like anyone else at the same time.”
No word whether she will appear nude on the show, reality television or not. Bets are on “not.” TV Land is known for its nostalgic bent, which includes family-oriented programs. That would be a bit too real, even for reality television. That means no nude scenes even with Harry Hamlin, who was quite the hunk in his days on “L.A. Law.”
So the next few months is going to be Rinna saturated. Rinna nude in Playboy. Rinna not naked in an “I Love Lucy”-esque reality show called “I Love Lisa” (wrapping one’s head around that concept is nearly impossible). Rinna partially naked (perhaps) in a possible “Melrose Place” reunion or series.
The “I Love Lisa” show will probably be standard reality show fair, so it is suggested that the casual Lisa Rinna fan pick a copy of the new Playboy to have something worth looking at until they get around to making the “Melrose Place” reunion movie (or spinoff, or whatever…).
