Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin were on the Today show to talk about their new reality-TV show, Harry Loves Lisa, as well Rinna’s famous lips and their new books when reality hit them right while they were appearing on live television.
The couple learned that Belle Gray, their clothing store in Sherman Oaks, Calif., had been burglarized, and reacted to the crime in real time while talking with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.
Having already spoken with Meredith Vieira earlier on the show, Rinna and Hamlin had returned to chat with Kotb and Gifford in the show’s fourth hour when the news came. Hamlin, rightfully so, was agitated, and, holding his cell phone, told the anchors that he had been informed their store had been broken into just moments before they came on camera. Hamlin mentioned the name of his alarm company and was very angry.
Only seconds later, Hamlin’s cell phone rang.
“The store is being robbed?” Hamlin said into his phone. He continued, “And by the way, our alarm company was supposed to take care of this, and they did nothing, did nothing!”
Hamlin and Rinna got into the retail clothing business in 2003 when they opened Belle Grey in Sherman Oaks.
