may have appeared on Melrose Place, Veronica Mars
and as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars
but she'll always be remembered as Billie Reed on Days of our Lives
. It may be more than five years since she last graced the daytime world but the 45-year-old actress is still making news.
Rinna, who recently hosted a live Red Carpet arrivals gig at the Golden Globes, is now gearing up for her newest in-front-of-the-camera venture: a scripted reality show. How a "reality" show can be scripted remains to be seen. On the other hand, Rinna explains that the purpose of scripting the new series is to ensure that it will be a comedy. A pilot for the series will be shot for the TV Land cable channel in the next few weeks.
According to the former Days
star, her new show will be entitled I Love Lisa
, which is a take-off of I Love Lucy
, and will follow Rinna, husband Harry Hamlin
and their two daughters, Delilah Belle, 10, and Amelia Gray, 7, in their daily routines.
Aside from starring in a new scripted reality series, Rinna is also planning to pose without clothing for Playboy
. While Rinna is no stranger to posing nude (she already posed for the popular magazine while she was pregnant with her first child), the former Days of our Lives
actress says that she had to consider how her family would feel about it.
"They were definitely a consideration. [Posing] can be a way of expressing yourself and your sexuality. You can control it and control your image," Rinna said. "If and when we have to go there, it will be a family discussion that will be challenging and hopefully thought-provoking. I view sexuality in a different way. It doesn't mean you're a victim. Doing this can be a strong and powerful choice."
