Watch: Hear Lisa Rinna's Confession About SEX With Harry Hamlin After 60

After more than three decades together, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin are still owning it—in the bedroom.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum recently got refreshingly candid about their sex life and how it's changed over the years as they've gotten older.

"I do think that desire levels change for a man," the actress, who covers Cosmopolitan's new "Sex After 60" issue, told the outlet. "That's just the natural evolution of life. So it's figuring out how to coexist without taking that personally as a woman. I think that it's almost more about companionship and about creating space for the ebb and flow of sexuality."

However, the 60-year-old assured readers she and Hamlin are still very attracted to each other.

"We really have great sex together, and we always have," Rinna noted. "It's just that maybe it doesn't happen quite as often as it did when you're in your 30s and in your 20s, I would say. And I think that's normal."

"I don't feel like I'm 60, and Harry doesn't feel like he's 72," she explained. "So, it's just the number comes up, and you're like, 'Oh, f--k!' And that's what I'm always going to fight against. I've thought a lot about it, because I just turned 60 in July, and there's this whole thing about aging gracefully. And I'm like, 'F--k it. I'm going to age disgracefully.'"

And when it came to posing nearly nude for Cosmo, Rinna viewed the opportunity as a way to prove—especially to their model daughters Delilah Hamlin, 25, and Amelia Hamlin, 22—that you can be sexy at any age.

"I was so excited to shoot this cover because this is the kind of thing that moves the needle," she said. "It moves the needle for my daughters. It moves the needle for women to go, 'Holy s--t. You can do that. You do not have to give up, go out to pasture, calm down, turn it way down when you turn 60 or when you get older.'"

"You can't fight aging," she continued. "I don't necessarily need to look like I'm 20 years old, though that's fun if you can get it. But you know what I'm saying? It's about how do you morph yourself into this era and still feel good, be curious, be passionate, and be happy?"

Dolly Parton & Carl Thomas Dean

She's a superstar performer known around the world. He's a private man who stays away from the spotlight. But together, they've built a marriage that has lasted more than 56 years. "I like it when people say, 'How did it last so long?'" Dolly told ET Canada in December 2022. "I say, 'It's stay going.' There's a lot to be said about that. So we're not in each other's face all the time. He's not in the business, so we have different interests, but yet we have the things we love to do together. So it was meant to be. He was the one I was supposed to have and vice versa."

Samuel L. Jackson & LaTanya Richardson Jackson

There's no breaking the bond of these college sweethearts. "In the beginning, we always said the most revolutionary thing that Black people could do was stay together, raise their children with the nucleus of having a father and a mother, since everybody likes to pretend that that's not the dynamic of the African American family," LaTanya told People in March 2022. "That it's just children out here being raised by women, which we know is false. In order to change that narrative, we made a decision to say, ‘We are going to stay together no matter what. We'll figure it out.'"

Bonnie Bartlett & William Daniels

When you find joy in life's daily activities, Bonnie says your marriage could last forever. "We're very happy," she told People when celebrating 72 years of marriage in January. "We sit in this house and we do things. He reads his New York Times and he does Cameos mostly. And we do conventions and things like that. We just like to be with each other. And we would do anything for each other."

Ron & Cheryl Howard

These high school sweethearts celebrated their 50th anniversary in November 2020. "There's no technique," Ron told People just one year earlier. "There's no tactic other than communication is really important. You have to learn to communicate and have difficult conversations in constructive ways."

Christopher & Georgianne Walken

After meeting during a production of West Side Story in the '60s, this couple continues to savor every moment together with gratitude. "Every once in a while, I'll be looking out the window, and I'll think, 'I feel pretty good,'" Christopher told New York Times Magazine in February 2022. "My bills are paid, my wife is healthy, the weather's nice. That's really all I care about: when, apropos of nothing, I happen to look out the window and think, 'This is good.'"

Alan & Arlene Alda

After 65 years of marriage, the couple has found their groove away from the spotlight in Long Island, New York. In an interview with The New Yorker, Alan said he and his wife enjoy playing chess during the day and ladder ball before dusk. Then, it's a nice dinner and a quality TV show.  It's not noisy in the country," he said in June 2022. "I don't have to show up places. Places come to me."

Martin & Janet Sheen

Through sickness and in health! After Martin recovered from a heart attack and nervous breakdown in the late '70s, he recalled a few words his wife told him. "It was very serious, and she handled it like a pro," he told Closer Weekly in 2016. "She had me laughing in the most dire circumstances. She said, 'Don't take yourself so seriously.' Every day is a celebration with this dame."

Lily Tomlin & Jane Wagner

After meeting in 1971, Lily and Jane have been inseparable. When asked to share advice for other couples, Lily kept it simple. "We all have a secret," Lily told reporters in 2019. "It's just the secret is that you're committed and care and you want it to work out. You don't want to walk away from something that's important."
