Speaking to Celebuzz, the actress revealed that Hamlin's previous marriage to Nicolette Sheridan ended when the Desperate Housewives star fell in love with Michael Bolton, allowing Rinna herself to begin a relationship with Hamlin.
"Well, I've been saying this for a while now, but I should really send Michael Bolton some flowers. 18 years ago, Harry and Nicolette were married and they had only been married for 11 months when she went to a Michael Bolton concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Harry never saw her again!" she explained.
"So it was a tough time for Harry but looking back, if not for Michael Bolton, I would never have had this wonderful man and marriage and my two beautiful children!"
