If you tuned in to Howard Stern’s Sirus/XM Satellite Radio show, you would have heard Howard and his staff give glowing reviews over a pictorial in the May 2009 issue of Playboy. The subject of the pictorial is 45 year-old Lisa Rinna as she pays homage to the 1967 classic “The Graduate” in an 8-page nude pictorial. The issue can be seen on newsstands now or at PlayboyDigital.com
Rinna, a Medford, Oregon native, first made the big time with roles on daytime soap opera, Days of Our Lives and Aaron Spelling’s hit drama, Melrose Place. But when she tangoed her way back onto primetime as a participant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, she was catapulted back into the limelight as one of the new media darlings and tabloid stars.
When she isn’t conducting interviews on the red carpet for the TV Guide Network, she and her husband, actor Harry Hamlin, are working on a TV show called I Love Lisa (a reality show spoofing I Love Lucy). Also, being published later this month is Rinnavation, an autobiographical self-help book Rinna has written to share her secrets and tips for maintaining physical and mental health in the hectic real world. Earlier this year, she released a dance-inspired workout DVD series, Lisa Rinna Dance Body Beautiful. She also owns two Belle Gray clothing boutiques in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley. The store’s name comes from the middle names of her two daughters, Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray.
This is Rinna’s second appearance in Playboy. In 1998, she created a stir when she posed nude for Playboy’s September issue while six months pregnant with her first daughter. Here’s a quick preview of what the May issue has in store for Playboy readers:
