Lisa Rinna talks postpartum depression

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.
