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!
