Lisa Rinna acknowledges the fluid nature of one’s sexuality as it evolves over time, and this understanding has influenced her relationship with Harry Hamlin. In an exclusive “Sex After 60” feature for Cosmopolitan, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star candidly discussed the evolution of her intimate life with Hamlin.
Reflecting on their enduring connection, the 60-year-old actress remarked, “I mean, luckily, not capabilities. I think that’s lucky for him because at 72, who knows?” She delved into the shifts in desire levels for men, emphasizing the natural progression of life and the importance of navigating these changes without personalizing them as a woman.
Rinna expressed that their connection has transformed into a deeper focus on companionship and the accommodation of the ebb and flow of sexuality. Despite acknowledging that their frequency of intimacy may not match that of their younger years, she emphasized the normalcy of such changes.
Maintaining intimacy remains crucial for Rinna and Hamlin’s enduring love life. She emphasized the necessity of planning, whether it be for a romantic dinner or a dedicated night of passion. Rinna stressed the couple’s commitment to creating space for each other, whether through date nights or occasional getaways.
While Rinna now exudes confidence in her sexuality, she admitted to a past struggle with repression, particularly growing up in the ’60s in Medford, Oregon. Explaining her transformation, she shared, “I rebelled, certainly after a while. But I toed the line really well for a very long time, even when I first met Harry.”
Praising Hamlin’s acceptance, Rinna acknowledged his unwavering support over their 31-year journey together. The couple, married since 1997, credits their lasting relationship to their opposing yet complementary personalities. Hamlin humorously described their differences, stating, “I like going up to the mountains, and her idea of camping is anything below the 10th floor of the Four Seasons.” Their enduring marriage has produced two daughters, Amelia Gray, 22, and Delilah Belle, 25.
