In a town like Hollywood, where bombshell breakups and drawn-out divorces regularly make headlines, their 25-year marriage is the stuff of fairytales.

Actors Lisa Rinna (59) and Harry Hamlin (70) recently raised their glasses to toast their silver wedding anniversary. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality star also shared a picture of the special day.

"Throwback to 25 years ago. My Hero," Lisa captioned the black-and-white snap. 

The celebrity couple has made no secret about how different they are, yet they've managed to keep the flame of their love going for a quarter of a century. 

"I like going up to the mountains, and her idea of camping is anything below the 10th floor of the Four Seasons," Harry says.

"We have nothing in common. We're both kind people, but we have nothing in common. Zero, zip, zilch," Lisa adds.

Harry and Lisa first crossed paths at a restaurant in 1992. Although he was married at the time, Lisa was smitten.

"I was married, so I wasn't thinking beyond that, but I do recall being stricken by her beauty," he told People earlier this year. 

"You were Harry Hamlin," Lisa said in the joint interview. "You were the Sexiest Man Alive, big movie star, you were starring in L.A. Law. I was star-struck!" 

"You were star-struck and I was love-struck," Harry quipped. 

Lisa is the Mad Men actor's third wife. He was married to actresses Laura Johnson from 1985 to 1989 and Nicollette Sheridan from 1991 to 1992. He's also father to Dimitri (42), his son with Swiss actress Ursula Andress. 

“Harry wasn’t very excited to get married again,” Lisa says. “So, it took five years for him to propose.” 

He popped the question while they were having dinner one night in Canada.

“Out of the blue he says, ‘I think we should get married, what do you think?’ That’s how romantic it was,” Lisa jokes.

The lovebirds walked down the aisle in 1997, the bride looking radiant in a Vera Wang gown.

The secret to their happy relationship is communication, they say.

“It can be hard to allow what other people are saying actually in. That's what Lisa and I do, we listen,” Harry says. “And she's smart, she's the smartest person I've ever met. She's smart as a whip. Our favourite thing is to hang out.”

The couple also have a close bond with their two daughters, Delilah Belle (24) and Amelia Gray (21), and regularly share family snaps on social media.

When she isn't spending time with her family or filming RHOBH, Lisa has her hands full running her businesses, Rinna Beauty and Rinna Wine, while Harry enjoys cooking up a storm for the family.

These two may be worlds apart, but it's precisely why they continue to go from strength to strength.
