"The editors told Lisa that they haven't had photographs in the magazine like this since they had Helmut Newton and Herb Ritts shooting for them," Harry Hamlin tells TVGuide.com. "So we're very pleased with the way the pictures turned out."
Hamlin says that Rinna — who previously doffed her duds for Playboy's September 1998 issue, while six months pregnant with daughter Delilah — got the idea for an encore after participating in Room 23, a book of provocative photography by Deborah Anderson. In turn, Anderson shot Rinna's new eight-page Playboy pictorial, which pays homage to the 1967 film The Graduate.
This is Lisa Rinna's second time posing for the lad's mag as the 45 year-old first appeared clothes-less in the September 1998 issue.
Rinna appeared last season in Dancing with the Stars.
