Denise Richards isn't the only famous face clamoring for a spot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Lisa Rinna confirmed to that she was considering joining the Bravo crew before she and actor hubby Harry Hamlin, 59, landed their TV Land reality series, Harry Loves Lisa.

"We were in discussions originally," the actress, 47, told Us of the Bravo hit at the Nomad Two Worlds Opening Gala Tuesday. "I was up for it, and at the time I did my show instead of Beverly Hills. It was part of the process, but then my show came along so I ended up doing our show."

It's a choice Rinna doesn't seem to regret. When asked if she would want to be on an upcoming season, she laughed, "I'm good."

And though her show with Hamlin is over as well, their relationship is still red hot. 

"It's chemistry," she told Us of their successful romance. "You either have it or you don't. You have to get away. You've gotta go to a hotel, and you've got to get away. It's the secret, you have to."
