Married actors Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin were in for a shock during a live TV interview on Tuesday, when they were alerted to a burglary taking place at their California clothing store.

The stars were promoting their books and reality series Harry Loves Lisa on The Today Show, which tapes in New York, when they learned their Sherman Oaks clothing store Belle Gray had been burgled at approximately 7.15am Pacific Standard Time.

The Clash of the Titans actor told the anchors he was informed about the incident during a commercial break.

Clutching his phone he explained, “I have to tell you I have to keep my cell phone on, because our clothing store is being robbed as we speak.”

Seconds later, Hamlin’s cell phone rang and he could be heard asking the caller, “The store is being robbed? They take much? They took piles from the first two racks, yes?”

After ending the call, Hamlin told The Today Show presenters, “No one was hurt, and the police are coming.”

The couple opened Belle Gray in 2003. They launched a second store in nearby Calabasas, but closed that location down last year.
