Lisa Rinna says lip troubles bothered her for 25 years after she got silicone implants in her youth but still credits the oversized pout for helping to make her career.
Speaking to Hoda Kotb on NBC’s Today Show, Rinna recounted her decision to get lip injections when she was young and “stupid.” She said she had just seen the movie Beaches and went with her girlfriend to get a silicon injection.
Rinna became known for her oversized lips but said the troubles they caused were wearing down on her as her career went on. Finally, a few years ago, she decided to do something about it.
“So then cut to a couple of years ago, I had a doctor remove as much as they possibly could because it got to a point where they were yucky,” Rinna said. “They get hard! I mean it’s gross. So they are now just whatever that was after they took out as much as the silicone as they could.”
This isn’t the first time that Lisa Rinna has opened up about her plastic surgery mishaps. Back in 2008, she admitted that her obsession with artificial enhancements had gone a little too far.
“I saw a picture of myself and thought, ‘Uh-oh,’ ” she said after getting too much Juvederm. “You have to be careful. I’m a perfect example of that!”
But lip troubles or not, Rinna has always been able to poke fun at herself. This summer she and husband Harry Hamlin appeared in a commercial for Depends new “Silhouette For Women” brand of adult diapers. In the ad, the couple walked down a red carpet holding a box of Depends diapers with the line of the diaper showing from beneath Lisa’s dress.
Rinna said, despite the lip troubles, she would probably get the injections again if she could. As the actress noted, she had no career before she got the lips done, “so my lips have had their own career!”
