Harry Hamlin on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: From Mad Men to Angry Women!

by at .

If you watched The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 1 last night, then you know the show has added some new faces for season 5.

Lisa Rinna joined the cast in July and brought her friend Eileen Davidson along. (No word on how Lisa feels about Eileen landing a record salary for the show.)

It was originally rumored that Lisa's husband Harry Hamlin would not be appearing on the show, much to the chagrin of his rabid female fan base. (Harry was one of the first to receive People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive title way back in 1987.)

Fortunately, the veteran television actor was right by Lisa's side as she attended Kyle Richard's white party on last night's episode, meaning fans are probably in store for a full season of the bespectacled silver fox.

Even better, Hamlin apparently acts and dresses just like his Mad Men character, Jim Cutler, in real life! Hopefully, at some point he and Lisa Vanderpump will engage in a tense stare-down over old school cocktails.

Last night, we learned that when he's not butting heads with Don Draper, Hamlin enjoys playing guitar, coaching his wife on the proper arrangement of flowers, and being dragged to color-coordinated social engagements.

While Harry and Lisa seem to have a loving relationship, she sarcastically referred to him as "the king" at one point, and stated that she sometimes grows tired of obeying his commands. 

So yeah, we might have some Rinna-Hamlin relationship drama to look forward to.

Fun fact: Hamlin was married to Nicolette Sheridan in the early 90s, which means he's now gone Desperate Housewife to Real Housewife. Sounds like an upgrade to us!

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to see Harry and Lisa bring a little class to the beloved Bravo series.
