People generally associate Lisa Rinna with oversized, fake lips, even though her luscious suckers had to be reduced recently. The soap star appeared on “Today” while filling in for Kathie Lee Gifford on Monday.

Rinna explained to co-host Hoda Kotb the true story behind her enormous pout. The “Days of Our Lives” actress had silicone injections a quarter of a century ago, but had to go in for surgery to get as much of the silicone out as possible after some it started to harden.

"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," Rinna explained.

The actress’s lip trouble has since diminished and luckily her lips are still puffy even without the silicone. Right now Rinna is appearing on "Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars," and host Donald Trump has been remarking on how good she looks, specifically her lips.

Rinna's lips look better after her latest reconstruction surgery, and she says she doesn’t regret getting her pout enlargement done since it's what has made her famous.

"I would do it again. I never had a career before I had the lips, so my lips have had their own career," Rinna honestly told Kotb.
