Lisa Rinna certainly turned some heads when she unexpectedly popped up in a new Depend adult diapers commercial. However, the "Days of our Lives" star tells me she has nothing to be ashamed of.

“I did it for Charity," Lisa tells me. "They donated $225,000 to Dress for Success if I tried them on in the commercial. That’s why I did it. Plus, I loved their campaign."

Although Lisa does not personally wear Depends, she hopes to empower women through her endorsement of the brand, showing them that they don't have to be ashamed of their bodies.

“You can go out and live your life with confidence and I love that take," Lisa says. "I found out that 56 million people suffer from incontinence, that's one fifth of the population. That's huge!”

Lisa's supportive husband, Harry Hamlin, even agreed to be in the commercial.

“I don't endorse many products,” Lisa explains. “When I was first asked, I was surprised. I'm not the first person you think of when you think of Depends. That's what I Love about it. I believe women should feel good about themselves and if that means they need to talk about their problems, then absolutely. We need to help each other. I was not afraid to do this.”
