Harry Hamlin was determined to convince Lisa Rinna not to take part in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills", which he thought was a "terrible, terrible" idea.
Despite the name The Real Housewives, the television series Bravo is notorious for the many couples who broke up during or after the show. Harry Hamlin 68, was concerned that fate could be for his and Lisa Rinna's marriage, which he confessed to in an interview with The Daily Beast (ironically, it was released on December). 16, just one day before the news from the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudices Split showed up). When Lisa first approached Harry with the idea of attending the show, the LA law star remembered saying to Lisa, "I have my divorce lawyer on speed dial, and I do." The interviewer even claimed that Harry "offered" his phone as proof of this ready-to-use contact!
Fortunately, Harry didn't have to call his divorce lawyer. Lisa has been successfully playing at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2014, and her 22-year marriage is still intact. But before all of this happened, Harry said to Lisa, "You can't do that." Everyone who does this show gets divorced. It's a terrible, terrible thing to do this show. "
Harry himself was determined not to appear on the Bravo show. "You wouldn't hire Lisa if I didn't, and the husbands have the same obligations as the wives," said Harry. He added: “You want you to show up and be involved. I said I would not do that. So we came up with a way to get around this. “Your solution was the solitude that Harry saw on Bravo. The actor said this was a "fully conscious" move. The main reason that he agreed to the camera time was because Bethenny Frankel (19459005), executive director of The Real Housewives of New York City, had convinced that doing so would be a good thing from a branding perspective. "From then on, Harry said he was" open to doing it on my own terms. "
Despite all the drama that is happening on RHOBH and which Harry insisted is "without a script", he attributed the success of his and Lisa's marriage to strong listening skills. "We listen to each other. Really listen The thing about listening is that it's not something that people naturally think of, ”Harry mused. “Usually we have a ribbon in our head all the time. It can be difficult to let what other people actually say. That's exactly what Lisa and I do – we listen. And she's smart, she's the smartest person I've ever met. She is as smart as a whip. We like to hang out. "
