TV host and actress Lisa Rinna has been with her husband actor Harry Hamlin for two decades.
But on Monday night, Rinna opened up to HLN’s Dr. Drew about a very difficult time in her marriage..
“After having my first daughter Delilah, I had severe postpartum depression,” she explained. "I kept it a secret. I didn't say a word to anybody in the world. [My husband] thought I was just nuts. He had no idea what was going on and I was so hopeless and felt so lost.”
She added, “Ten months later, [I] opened up to him and told him how worthless I felt. My self-esteem was gone. I didn't want to have sex. It was opening up something that I felt so much shame about was the most valuable thing that I could have done.”
Hear more of her empowering story in the video clip above.
