Harry Hamlin has been delighting audiences with his square jaw and piercing stare since he starred in the 1981 classic Clash of the Titans. Hamlin’s roles as the demigod Perseus and later as Michael Kuzak in LA Law paved the way for his cult-like status. In 1987, People named Hamlin the Sexiest Man Alive.
However, Hamlin was mortified by the award. He later told Deseret News he was caught unawares by the title and, although he was in Australia at the time, continued to practice damage control. He recalled, “I woke up all my friends at 4 a.m. and said, ‘I had nothing to do with this, you know. I want you to still be my boyfriend.'” Oh, the shame of being too sexy has never been felt so acutely!
So it only makes sense that he likes to keep his personal life private. He told the Daily Beast that he was hesitant about his wife’s decision to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. He shared: “I said to Lisa [Rinna], “You can not do that. Anyone who does this show gets divorced.” He added, “I have my divorce lawyer on speed dial.” He eventually approved of the show, but is not required to also appear on the show. Even if he selectively shares his personal life with fans, Hamlin remains a popular figure. In fact, one Real Housewife star admits she had a crush on the actor.
RHONY’s Ramona Singer has ‘kind of stalked’ Harry Hamlin.
Harry Hamlin’s heartthrob status knows no bounds. In fact, one Real Housewives of New York City star admits she once had a crush on him. In 2019, she told Page Six TV, “About 10 years ago I saw Harry Hamlin on Madison Avenue … And who’s in front of me? Harry Hamlin! Lisa Rinna’s husband. Oh my god he looks so good! It seems like Singer had no qualms about following Rinna’s husband because she was struck by the stars. She recalled, “I just wanted to be in his presence, so, sorry Lisa, I kind of followed him??” However, it wasn’t Singer’s lucky day and he didn’t notice her antics. She added, “But he looked good!”
Somebody should really tell Singer that Hamlin can’t be distracted. The actor seems solely focused on what he’s doing and won’t budge. Rinna even appeared on the show Live with Kelly and Ryan and talked about how Hamlin stays focused on his work even when Rinna is up against him. In another Instagram part, Rinna is dancing on her deck and pulling out all the stops, but Hamlin seems undeterred by gardening. I’m sorry Ramona, but if a scantily clad Lisa couldn’t even catch his attention at home, it was very unlikely that he would have noticed you shopping.
Lisa Rinna reveals Harry Hamlin’s sex appeal
The Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan raised an eyebrow as she commented on Lisa Rinna’s social media post. According to The US Sun, Rinna danced enthusiastically while Harry Hamlin continued to work on the clip. The ‘Mad Men’ actor ignored his wife, who wore a fitted leopard print outfit. Morgan then posted, “Need a threesome to light this up,” adding a thumbs-up emoji. While she was probably just joking with her castmate, one has to wonder how many other people had similar thoughts. Rinna later answered the burning question when she appeared on a talk show.
Rinna appeared on “The Real” in December 2021 and spoke about her family. Loni Love commented, “Every time I see your husband I’m like, ‘Yes, ‘LA Law!'” The co-host then revealed, “I would still do it.” Rinna didn’t seem bothered by Love’s admission and made it clear: “You know what, people come up to me, men, women, it doesn’t matter, they all want to do it. They all want to make Harry Hamlin.” Straight from the pen of the horse – 35 years after his Sexiest Man Alive status and Hamlin still has it.
