There is a $10 million net worth behind the career of American actress, TV personality, model, and entrepreneur Lisa Rinna. After appearing in a music video for John Parr, Rinna quickly became one of the most recognizable actresses in the industry.
She first came to prominence in 1992 thanks to her role as Billie Reed on Days of our Lives, and later as Taylor McBride on Melrose Place.
A prolific TV performer, Rinna has co-starred with husband Harry Hamlin in episodes of Veronica Mars and hosted shows like Soap Talk.
Lisa’s appearances on numerous big soap operas and her marriage to Harry Hamlin established her as a star before she became a housewife on ‘RHOBH,’ but the show propelled her to fame.
Lisa is also an entrepreneur; she has produced the clothes line Rinna and marketed it on QVC, and more recently she has introduced the beauty company Rinna Beauty, which features subtle references to her catchphrases from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
On the 11th of July, 1963 found Lisa Rinna was born in Newport Beach, California. When Rinna was seven years old, her family moved to Medford, Oregon, where she spent the rest of her childhood and teenage years.
In 1981, she graduated from Medford Senior High School. She dropped out of college and headed straight to San Francisco to try her luck as a fashion model, which led to guest spots on various television shows.
Then, it was just a matter of time until she got her big break and her career in show business got going.
Getting Started in the Acting Industry
Lisa made her acting debut in the John Parr music video for “Naughty Naughty” when she was just 22 years old; by 1990, she was guest-starring on many episodes of The Hogan Family. In 1992, she made her acting debut on the NBC daytime drama Day of Our Lives in the character of “Billie Reed.”
She portrayed Taylor McBride on Melrose Place from 1996 to 1998. She has been in Veronica Mars in the film Sex, Lies & Obsession alongside her husband, Harry Hamlin. In 2002, Rinna won a Daytime Emmy and joined the cast of the talk show Soap Talk.
In 2007, she replaced Joan Rivers as the anchor of the red carpet events on the TV Guide Network, and in 2009, she was the star of a Broadway production of Chicago.
Unfortunately for Rinna, the new Melrose Place revival was canceled after only one season and she never got to reprise her part on the show. Both of these events occurred in 2009.
She appeared in an episode of Big Time Rush on Nickelodeon in 2011, and later that year it was revealed that she would reprise her role as Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives.
She has appeared on the show four times total: from 1992 to 1999, from 2002 to 2008, and twice more, in 2012–13 and 2018. As a longtime audience favorite, she will almost certainly make a return appearance.
She has been in CSI, Awkward, and This Close, among others.
Salary of Lissa Rinna
A conservative estimate places Lisa Rinna’s wealth at $10 million in 2022. One of the highest-paid cast members, her salary on The Real Housewives of Beverly is $450,000 every season.
She earned $2 million between her sponsorship of the adult diaper company Depends, modeling, endorsement deals, book royalties, and sales of products on the shopping network QVC.
In addition to building an influential social media presence and successful business under the name “Rinna Beauty,” Rinna has also started her own line of cosmetics.

Personal History of Lisa Rinna
A plastic surgeon, Botox, Juvederm, and silicone injections are among the options that Rinna has discussed. After Rinna fell for Harry Hamlin’s good looks and personality, the two finally tied the knot on March 29, 1997.
Delilah Belle was born on June 10, 1998, and Amelia Gray was born on June 13, 2001, both after they began dating. She is also the primary caregiver for Dimitri Alexander, the son of Hamlin and Ursula Andress.
As soon as Rinna uploaded eight shots to her Instagram account, a celebrity photographic firm accused her of stealing their work. The benefits of celebrity status are real.
With nearly 3 million followers, the photographs quickly went viral, costing her $1.2 million to remedy. In addition, Rinna has stated in the past that her mother, Lois, was a cast member on The Real Housewives before her untimely death from a stroke.
