Lisa Rinna is known for making headlines on account of the gravity defying 48-year-old body she has managed to maintain years after her rise to stardom in Days of Our Lives.
But now, the soap star is lending her tabloid power to a slightly less glamourous cause in an advert for Depend incontinence pants.
The endorsement of such a young, attractive celebrity will be a surprise to anyone who remembers Depend as a product advertised by older folk on golf courses.
Red carpet underwear: Lisa Rinna, 48, is appearing in the new advertising campaign for Depend 'adult diapers' in which she tries on and wears the product as a stunt to raise money for Dress for Success
But, in a staged interview with a Depend host, Ms Rinna appeared eager to share the reason she agreed to wear and promote the diaper for charity.
'I am a champion of the positive self-image for women, and what I love about the new Silhouette is it makes a woman feel confident,' she says twirling on the rake red carpet. 'And it's fashionable.'
Ms Rinna is joined by her husband of
15 years, actor Harry Hamlin, who gives his own review of the product
after sliding his finger over her famous curves.
'I cannot even feel it,' he concludes rather lasciviously.

But in a somewhat ironic twist, the impressively youthful actress is advertising the slimline diaper.
In the video, she talks about the charity that the Kimberly Clark brand agreed to donate $225,000 to on her behalf.

Wearing a stunning, tight-fitting black evening dress, the svelte star exclaims: 'I'm wearing an evening gown for God's sakes and you can't tell I have it on. Check out the booty!'
In a rather more rehearsed plug for the product she says: 'It feels great and they're so soft.'
'This product shows women you can still look and feel fabulous,' she gushes.
Mr Hamlin for one agrees, giving his wife a cheeky growl under his breath as she turns one more time for the camera.
