Meet the new housewives:
Raised in small town Medford, Oregon but always dreaming of a more fabulous life, Lisa has used her exotic looks, infectious energy and savvy business acumen to become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. Lisa is known to many as Billie Reed, the free-spirited character she played on NBC’s daytime hit "Days of Our Lives," as well as love-to-hate-her Taylor McBride on Fox’s long-running primetime smash, "Melrose Place." Never one to turn down good work, Lisa's list of credits is long and varied. She has recently been seen on ABC's "Sing Your Face Off," and the hit NBC reality show, "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice". Other credits include "Veronica Mars," "Entourage", and the Lifetime Original movies, "Sex, Lies and Obsession" and "Another Woman’s Husband," which boasted one of the highest ratings for any film on the network. From 2002-2006, she hosted her own successful talk show, "Soap Talk", for which she earned four Emmy nominations in the "Outstanding Talk Show Host" category. An accomplished New York Times best-selling author, Lisa has released three books, entitled "The Big, Fun, Sexy Sex Book," "Starlit," and "Rinnavation." A longtime lover of fashion, Lisa recently launched her new collection Belle Gray by Lisa Rinna for QVC. Lisa is married to Harry Hamlin, currently seen on "Mad Men" and together they live in Beverly Hills, navigating life with their two teenage daughters, Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray.

Her other early credits include "Eternity"' opposite Jon Voight and Armand Assante and playing the lead in Stephen Cannell's series, "Broken Badges." Eileen is best known for her role as Ashley Abbot on the #1 rated daytime series, "The Young and the Restless," and also as Kristen DiMera on "Day of our Lives." For the past two years, Eileen has played both roles concurrently, which is nothing unusual for her, as from 1997 to 1998 she made television history by playing five roles simultaneously on "Days of our Lives." In 2014, after three nominations, she won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress for her main role on "Days of our Lives." Always trying to stay busy and creative, Eileen has written four novels with prolific mystery writer Robert Randisi, three of which were published by Penguin Paperbacks.

She is married to Vincent Van Patten, a former child star, professional tennis player ranking 25th in the world, current host of "World Poker Tour" and the son of Hollywood legend, Dick Van Patten.
