Lisa Rinna has spoken about her lip troubles on Monday's Today Show on NBC, explaining to host Hoda Kotb about how a quarter of a century ago she had her lips injected with silicone.

Rinna said, "Here's the story. 25 years ago I had my lips injected with silicone. Stupid thing to do.. 24.. I saw Beaches and I did it with my best girlfriend."

She continued: "So then cut to a couple of years ago, I had a doctor remove as much as they possibly could because it got to a point where they were yucky.

"They get hard! I mean it's gross. So they are now just whatever that was after they took out as much as the silicone as they could."

Hotb asked whether she would do it again.

Rinna replied, "I would do it again. I never had a career before i had the lips so my lips have had their own career!"
