Before his marriage to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna, there were three women that caught Harry Hamlin’s eyes. His first relationship was with his co-star Ursula Andress, who was 15 years his senior. The couple met during the set of Clash of the Titans in 1979. Harry Hamlin admitted that he had a crush on her before they even saw each other on the set because he saw her in a Playboy Magazine when he was 13. The two never married but they shared a son together, Dimitri  Hamlin. The couple raised their son together for three years and had even planned to wed but Harry called off the wedding.
