“Days of Our Lives” is known for finding some great, talented actors to portray characters on the show, and that’s exactly what they did with Lisa Rinna. Rinna debuted on “DOOL” in 1992 in the role of Billie Reed, and quickly became a favorite among fans after entering into a relationship with the iconic soap character, Bo Brady.
In 2021, Rinna returned to reprise the role of Billie for the soap’s spin-off series “Beyond Salem,” which streamed on the Peacock app. “I hold a special place in my heart for Billie Reed, and I love her probably — I’m closer to her than any character I’ve ever played, and it’s always fun to go back and revisit her,” Rinna told The Today Show at the time.
After deciding to leave “DOOL” as a full-time cast member, Rinna eventually went on to join “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (via Bravo) where she interacts with her co-stars and shares details of her life with her family. The show ultimately became a massive reality TV hit.
