1. Sheridan has had quite the dating history.

Sheridan is a British born actress who moved to Hollywood when her mother married movie legend Telly Savalas. She began her career as a model before breaking into television in the 1980s, doing roles on a number short-lived primetime dramas before booking a starring role on the daytime soap Knot’s Landing in 1986.

She stuck with that show until 1993, when she embarked on a series of made for tv movies, which made up the bulk of her career until she was cast as Edie Britt on Desperate Housewives in 2004. Along the way, she had relationships with some of the hottest names of the 80s and 90s including Scott Baio and Leif Garrett. I

n 1991, she married actor Harry Hamlin, whom she’d met filming a tv movie together. Their marriage fizzled after a year and she spent the next five years dating pop star Michael Bolton. After a long time apart, Sheridan and Bolton reunited and got engaged in 2005 but broke up in 2008 without marrying.

Sheridan went on to marry Aaron Phypers in 2015. They separated in 2016 but didn’t finalize their divorce until 2018.

2. Harry Hamlin has as well.

Harry Hamlin grew up in California but moved east to attend Yale University, where he studied drama and psychology. He went to the advanced actor training program at the American Conservatory Theatre and began doing stage work after that. His big Hollywood break came with Clash of the Titans in 1981.

After a few years of doing poorly received films, he got a starring role on the tv legal drama LA Law in 1986. He remained with the series until 1993 and then went on to do small tv and film roles before doing a comeback stint on Mad Men in 2013.

He had a long-term relationship with Bond girl Ursula Andress from 1979 to 1983, and the couple has a son together. He was married to Laura Johnson from 1985 to 1989. He then had his short-lived marriage to Nicollet Sheridan before settling down with soap actress Lisa Rinna in 1997. They have two daughters together.

3. Rinna, however, does not.

Another California native, Lisa Rinna began her career as a model and got her acting start as a recurring character on the sitcom The Hogan Family. She ultimately ended up on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives, where she starred as Billie Reed from 1992 to 1995. She then took a part on the primetime drama Melrose Place.

Her acting career since then has consisted of reprising her most famous roles and small parts in series like Veronica Mars and Entourage. She has also made a huge name for herself in the world of reality television, with appearances on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Dancing With The Stars, as well as being a long-time Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member.

In 1997, she married Harry and the two of them had a reality show of their own called Harry Loves Lisa than only ran for 6 episodes.

4. Sheridan responded to Rinna's claims of cheating.

Recently, a clip from RHOBH circulated in which housewife Denise Richards talks about her plans to marry boyfriend  Aaron Phyers. The marriage was on hold until Phyers finalized his divorce from Nicolette Sheridan.

Rinna reminds everyone present that her husband had also been married to Sheridan and shared her version of why they broke up: Rinna says Sheridan attended a Michael Bolton concert in 1992, went home with the singer, and that broke up the marriage.

Sheridan took to twitter to deny the cheating allegations, saying her marriage to Hamlin ended “nose to nose in Canada”.

5. And thus, the feuding began.

Hamlin jumped into the Twitter fray to reiterate Rinna’s claims and adds fuel to the fire by saying that Sheridan cheated on him only two weeks after Hamlin’s mother had died.

Rinna merely said to Sheridan: “Sweetie, you are the gift that keeps on giving.”

6. But Sheridan fired back. 

Sheridan came back for more saying: “Do you really want the truth shared? I appreciate that you want to support your housewife’s FAKE NEWS narrative, but the end of our marriage had nothing to do with anyone other than us. Sad you still can’t own your part.” 

Neither Hamlin nor Rinna has responded to that last tweet. Will they all start spilling more dirt on social media? Watch Twitter to find out.
