Why Lisa Rinna Won't Be on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

If things had gone differently, you may have seen Lisa Rinna and her husband Harry Hamlin on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The actress says that she met with producers of the Bravo hit and considered joining the cast. But fate stepped in and she actually scored her own show TV Land reality series, Harry Loves Lisa.

"We were in discussions originally," the Dancing with the Stars alum, 47, told UsMagazine.com on Tuesday. "I was up for it, and at the time I did my show instead of Beverly Hills. It was part of the process, but then my show came along so I ended up doing our show."

Luckily, Rinna has no regrets about her decision. 

"I'm good," she laughed, when asked if she would consider doing an upcoming season of Housewives, now that her show is over.

Well, whether or not Rinna and Hamlin are in front of the cameras, they seem to have found what works for them as a couple. They've been married since 1997 and have two children, and Rinna's constantly talking about how they keep things steamy in the bedroom.

"It's chemistry," she says. "You either have it or you don't. You have to get away. You've gotta go to a hotel, and you've got to get away. It's the secret, you have to."
