Nicollette Sheridan is refuting claims that she cheated on ex-husband Harry Hamlin, with those claims made by his current wife, Lisa Rinna, on this week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”.
During the episode, Rinna and fellow Housewife Denise Richards were discussing Richards’ then-boyfriend (now husband) Aaron Phypers, who was then in the process of divorcing Sheridan.
“Harry was married to her for 11 months,” Rinna — who has been married to Hamlin since 1997 — said of the former “Desperate Housewives” star.
“Harry was married to her 30 years ago,” Rinna explained. “The story is she went to a Michael Bolton concert at the Hollywood Bowl.”
Which led another Housewife to interject, “And left with Michael Bolton?”
“Yes,” Rinna responded. “F**k yes. Harry was in Canada.”
She added: “I thank Michael Bolton to this day. Are you kidding me? Let’s cheers Michael Bolton,” she said, offering a toast to the “Soul Provider” singer. “Thank you, Michael Bolton. Because I would not have these beautiful children.”
One person took exception to that particular view of history: Sheridan herself, who took to Twitter on Saturday to refute Linna’s allegation that her cheating with Bolton ended her marriage to Hamlin.
Sharing the clip, Sheridan wrote, “FAKE NEWS! Harry and I ended our marriage nose to nose in Canada… Michael was a long time friend that was invited to our wedding…”
“The Shooter” star Hamlin refused to let Sheridan dictate the narrative. “What’s it called when your wife of one year suddenly goes to be with a pop singer?” Hamlin asked.
Rinna stood by her husband, tweeting, “Sweetie, Nicolette, You’re the gift that keeps on giving!”
“My bad, I’m sorry, Nicollette,” Rinna wrote in a separate Instagram Story. “I forgot to thank you also. Thank you for f**king Michael Bolton and cheating on Harry while married. I thought I’d take the high road and not tweet this… NAH.”
Sheridan and Bolton began dating in 1992 (the same year she divorced Hamlin), and split five years later. They later rekindled the relationship and announced their engagement in 2006, but broke up again before making it to the altar.
