Lisa Rinna Rehashes Lip Surgery Stories on 'Today'
Contemporary lip plumping devotees like Lindsay Lohan were still in diapers when Lisa Rinna pioneered the art of the surgically enhanced pout, a moment in plastic surgery history that Hoda Kotb was apparently nostalgic for during Monday's episode of "Today." During Rinna's guest host spot on the show, Kotb asked the 49-year-old actress to tell the one about how her lips got so crazy big. And Rinna indulged her -- for old time's sake.
"Here's the story," she said, like a mom reading her kid a favorite bed-time tale. "Twenty-five years ago, I had my lips injected with silicone. Stupid thing to do at 24. I saw 'Beaches.' Remember that movie 'Beaches'? I did it with my best girlfriend, so she and I go and we get our lips done. Fine. I have it like that for my whole career, right? So then cut to a couple of years ago, I have a doctor remove as much as they possibly can because it got to the point where they were yucky. You know, they get hard. It's gross. They are now whatever that was after they took out as much of the silicone as they could."
But would she do the "gross" procedures over again if she could go back in time? Not exactly. "I never had a career before I had the lips," she pointed out. "So my lips have had their own career."
