Exclusive: Lisa Rinna talks her new Hollywood novel

Lisa-Rinna_lWith her self-help book Rinnavation: Getting Your Best Life Ever already a New York Times bestseller, it’s not shocking to hear Lisa Rinna has signed a deal with Simon Spotlight Entertainment, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, for another tome due out summer 2010. The real surprise is that the new book will be a roman-a-clef about Rinna’s life in Hollywood; think the adult version of Lauren Conrad’s current literary hit L.A. Candy. “I mean I have no problem being honest and open as we all know,” says Rinna, currently on vacation with her two daughters and husband, Harry Hamlin. “So imagine when I can set it in this kind of a book! Everybody better watch out [laughs]!” The former Melrose Place star says that she’s already begun envisioning the lead ingenue and, especially, the bitchy villain. “It’s going to be a few people put together,” she admits of the book’s main baddie. “I’ve had a lot of really interesting run-ins with women in my life and in my career. And you gotta remember that my husband’s been married a few times and there’s a couple of interesting women in the landscape so to speak. So I think this book could be mindblowing [laughs]!” Rinna even hopes the novel finds a home outside of the printed page, like The Starter Wife. Says Rinna, “I would love to create a character that could go on for many books or we could make a series out of it or a movie.” But, as always, the star’s primary goal is to give fans and readers a good time. “I wanna make this the kind of book that is so entertaining, that there are so many people that you’re trying to guess who they are,” she says. “And I just want it to be really, really juicy, entertaining, fun, scandalous, sexual—you name it!”

So will you read Rinna’s new book, Shelf Lifers? Are you excited for this juicy read?

    This is her calling. Yep, I can see her as a writer. She’s tried every other way to make money, this is it.

    Please go away! I can’t even watch her on television because her face is so distorted.

  • Marylynn

    I loved her on Days of Our Lives. That’s about it. She seems like she’s a nice person though.

  • LeslieE

    God she’s pathetic. She has to use Nicolette Sheridan’s fame as a “tease” to get readers. Bwaaaah..
    I hope her lips explode one day. She’s so nutty and fake.

  • Rob

    She’s over the hill. Stick a fork in her she’s done. Harry’s too old to care what she looks like.

    hey lisa, stop being so desperate all the time, it’s not pretty. It’s sad and cringeworthy to watch. And yah, you’ve been so open and honest you lied about your lips in the past “my whole family has these lips”. That’s just so open and honest wasn’t it?

    Take a clue from Nicolette, she looks like a 20 year old in a bikini whereas you look weird with the fake boobs.

  • Stefani Mathis
