Lisa Rinna Explains Lip Trouble On Today Show

March 19, 2013 08:55 AM by Stephanie Gustafson


Lisa Rinna may have received some attention for being a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice and Dancing with the Stars, but let’s face it: her biggest claim to fame is a set of Angelina Jolie sized lips. During a recent appearance on the Today Show, Lisa explained the story behind her lips and the trouble they’ve caused in the past few years.

You can blame Bette Midler for Lisa Rinna’s big lips. The Celebrity Apprentice star says that she first decided to have her lips plumped up after seeing the film Beaches. Hoping for a full kisser like Bette’s, Lisa and a close friend went in to receive silicone injections. Nothing like bonding over silicone!

Although she now recognizes that it was a “stupid thing to do,” Lisa still credits the silicone injections for launching her celebrity career. “I would do it again. I never had a career before I had the lips. So my lips have had their own career!” That career, of course, has included several reality television gigs, including an appearance on Dancing with the Stars, and currently, efforts to avoid being fired by Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice. And of course, before she spent time on the reality circuit, Lisa was known for a soap opera career that included roles in Melrose Place and Days of our Lives.

Of course, having lips worthy of their own career occasionally creates problems for Lisa. She confessed to visiting doctors in hopes of having them “remove as much as they possibly can.” But if the big lips are responsible for her career, why would she want to back off on them? Apparently, they aren’t always as luscious as Lisa’s male fans imagine. “It got to a point where they were yucky. They get hard! I mean, it’s gross.”

So, the consensus on Lisa Rinna’s lip trouble? Gross, but totally worth it. Do you agree? Leave a comment and let us know!

    You forgot her fantastic pictorial in Playboy. Her assets are aging very nicely.

    I have to say, campy and tacky though she may be, I so respect her candor!

    Sorry – but it was Barbara Hershey who had her lips done for her role in Beaches. I remember how unnatural it looked – and Lisa looks exactly the same way. I often wonder why already gorgeous women think need to “make improvements”?

    I used to get injections in my lips. I got sick of it,, So I got perminate implants. They are great, you can pick your size, and they don’t move around. It is a waist of time and money to get injections. You can always have the implants removed , if you do not like them.
    I don’t think her lips made her career. Although they did look good at certain times. I prefer bigger lips..

    I think fake silicone lips look stupid. Melanie Griffith ruined her looks with the fake lips. Lisa Rinna was very pretty before the lips, now they just look fake. They always make the top of the lips too big so they just don’t look natural. It is so funny how no one is ever satisfied with what they got. When I was a young girl, I was self conscientious because I though my lips were too big. At the time small lips were in vogue. People need to realize that trends such as big lips come and go. Once you do something as drastic as plump up your lips with silicone, there is no backing down.

    No they are not worth it. Yes plump lips look beautiful…those are deformed.

    I wonder if the thought ever occurred to her to try using talent to get her career going?? Now she just looks like a clown, and I hate to tell her but reality shows are where REAL stars go to die…they are for has-beens and people who believe it will help re-invigorate their sagging careers. Beauty fades, talent and hard work are forever. Has anyone seen her commercials for adult diapers?? Boy, that’s quite a career move!!

    If they looked normal, but in her case they look
    deformed. No thank you.

    Yea Right, I bet on Lisa’s worst day none of you could look as good as her FEET! She is gorgeous, but the most beautiful part of her is that she is a decent and good person. In all of her career I have never heard her say a mean or rotten thing about anyone, too bad you LADIES & GENTLEMEN cannot claim the same. Jealousy, is not an enviable quality!
