Lisa Rinna & When Soap Operas Were Everything

Description

Breathless romance and shocking slaps. Demonic possessions and really big hair. An exhausting use of the word “bitch.” In the ‘90s, soap operas were off-the-chain crazy. And delicious. On the cover of PEOPLE’s February 21st, 1994 issue: the stars of Melrose Place. Lisa Rinna —who starred on both Days of Our Lives and Melrose — takes us back to the golden era of soaps, both daytime and primetime. As only she can, Lisa tells all about the sex (on-screen and off), fights, absurd plotlines, what she learned from Heather Locklear, how she met husband Harry Hamlin in 1992, and how her entire career prepared her for modern-day soap Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Plus: Find out which of our co-hosts is a die-hard soaps superfan and which barely knows Passions. Oh and remember Janeane Garofalo’s baby bangs in Reality Bites?
