Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Rinna, is known for being a hustler. What got her to where she is and how much has she earned thus far?
Lisa Rinna from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has made quite a name for herself. Even before she joined the famous reality series, she was a well-known face in Hollywood.
Before Rinna became a housewife, she was known for her acting skills in two popular soap operas: Days of Our Lives and Melrose Place. After she appeared on these shows Rinna became somewhat of a celebrity. This provided her with a number of opportunities, including a full time role on RHOBH.
According to Project Hatch, Rinna’s full name is Lisa Deanna Rinna, and she was born on July 11, 1963, in Newport Beach, California. The 57 year old married fellow actor Harry Hamlin on March 29, 1997 after just a few years of dating. The couple went on to have two daughters: Delilah Belle on June 10, 1998, and Amelia Gray on June 13, 2001. Before Rinna started her life as a wife and mother, she hustled her way into the entertainment industry. In 1985, Rinna made her acting debut when she appeared in John Parr’s music video for “Naughty Naughty”. Five years later, Rinna made her TV debut when she appeared on The Hogan Family in 1990. It was not until 1992 when she got the role as Billie Reed on the soap opera series, Days of Our Lives. Her character, Billie, was a professional singer, but the downfall of her career started when she became addicted to cocaine. She played the role until 1995, but came back in 2002-2003, and then reprised the role in 2012. After her her first run on Days of Our Lives, Rinna got the role as Taylor McBride, the wife of Kyle McBride, on Melrose Place. The show focused on the conflicts between a group of friends, much like RHOBH. Rinna then got to co star with her hubby, Harry, in the hit crime drama series Veronica Mars from 2004-2007. The couple later starred in the Broadway show Chicago together in 2009 where she played Roxie Hart. She also appeared in a number of made for TV movies and had a large role in the HBO series Entourage.

Fans will never forget when she and her husband came together for their own reality series Harry Loves Lisa back in 2010. Not too long after, she became a full time cast member on RHOBH.
With all of Rinna’s acting roles and business ventures she has done throughout the years, she has an estimated net worth of $10 million as of January 2020. As a housewife alone, Rinna pulls in about $450,000 per season for her salary. Her multiple acting roles contributed to her net worth, but lets not forget that Rinna has appeared in a number of TV commercials such as her infamous Depends commercial. Aside from acting, Rinna has also done a bit of modelling, just like her daughters. Her most notable modelling gig was her nude shoot for the September 1998 edition of Playboy, where she was six months pregnant with her daughter, Delilah. Now Rinna is making her money from not only RHOBH, but her clothing line, the Lisa Rinna Collection on QVC, and soon from her new beauty venture, Rinna Beauty.

Her hustle that she is so well known for has done well, seeing that she has created a net worth many will never be able to accomplish. Rinna is not afraid of a challenge and it certainly shows!
