Lisa Rinna: Why I Deflated My Lips

by at . Comments

"I no longer wanted my lips to be what defines me."

So said Lisa Rinna on Today this morning, as the actress explained what prompted her to undergo a procedure recently that reduced the size of her famous puckers.

"I never had thought that you could do anything about it," she said of her 1986 surgery. "You have silicone put in, that's it, it's permanent."

Soon after learning she could reverse the process, though, Rinna - who stars in TVLand's upcoming reality show Harry Loves Lisa, with husband Harry Hamlin - just went for it.

"It doesn't matter what other people think," she says. "I did it for myself."

Her lips looked absurd enlarged. We always though she had a repaired cleft palate and that's why it looked like that. God bless. RB

Wauw, great sucking lips. But her face is not that nice anymore. But for a one night stand those lips look nice. But don't want to have that as a longtime girlfriend. All those other man looking at those lips all day.

The real reason why she did it is because she would like some work and casting directors aren't exactly looking for fish people.

No one is absolutely flawless. Sometimes "we" remind others of our flaws by "continously and publicly advertising it".
P.S.
Harry has been married to Lisa for years, and evidently he see a quality in this woman that has nothing to do with **her insecurity
about her appearance.
