More evidence that even celebrities are not recession proof, Lisa Rinna is shutting the doors to one of her Belle Gray clothing Boutiques, RadarOnline.com has confirmed. Still, Rinna managed to hold on to her employees and will still keep her main store location in business.
A rep for Rinna explained the decision to RadarOnline.com: “Lisa Rinna, in a move to consolidate her successful Belle Gray retail operation, has closed her Belle Gray boutique located at the Commons in Calabasas. Ms Rinna’s main concern is for her employees and her Loyal customers. Fortunately, no fulltime sales associates were laid off and her customers can enjoy the same high quality service and great fashion editing at her flagship store on Ventura blvd in Sherman Oaks.”
Photos showing the Dancing with the Stars alum carrying boxes and other items from the store initially sparked rumors that it was closing. Rinna and husband Harry Hamlin opened Belle Gray in 2003, following the actress’s 40th birthday.
