Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin learn of burglary on live TV [poll]

October 5, 2010 | 10:37 am


Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin's clothing store was "being robbed as we speak," he said Tuesday morning on the "Today" show -- but no, the burglars are not the ones who absconded with Rinna's formerly famously plump upper lip

Hamlin took a cellphone call on the air to get details on the burglary, learning that clothes had been taken from "the first two racks" of the Sherman Oaks boutique, and that nobody was hurt.

Warning: If you have a problem with people who answer their cellphone while they're sitting with people at the dinner table, do not watch the video at the end of this post. Watching the talk-on-the-phone thing happen in front of people who are simultaneously conducting an interview on live national TV, about the couple's new reality show, no less, just might make your head explode.

Or at least make you wonder if Hamlin was, a la "Mad Men," pulling a Roger Sterling there on the phone.

So about that kisser: Rinna, who last year admitted she'd had silicone injected in 1986, just told

People magazine that in August she finally had lip-reduction surgery, which also made her mouth smooth instead of "bumpy and uneven … my lip has no lumps!"

The "work in progress" will take about six months to heal, she told the mag. We're sure we'll hear more about it on "Harry Loves Lisa," the new show.
