intro: Celebrities aren't above enduring a little embarrassment for the right price or a good cause.

In a new commercial for Depend adult diaper brand, "Days of Our Lives" actress Lisa Rinna shows off her famous pout and posterior while posing on the red carpet in a form-fitting dress -- with Depend's new Silhouette for Women underneath.

"I am wearing an evening gown for God's sake! And you can't tell I have it on. Check out the booty!" Rinna gushed turning around. "It feels great -- and they're so soft."

Even her husband, Harry Hamlin, put the product to the "touch test," running a finger down her backside. "You can't even tell she's wearing it," he declared.

Rinna, 48, insists she has nothing to be ashamed of.

"I am a champion for positive self-image for women," she says in the ad. "The new Silhouette makes a woman feel confident, and it's fashionable.

Moreover, Rinna is endorsing the brand for a good cause: Depend maker Kimberly-Clark agreed to donate $225,000 to Dress for Success, a charity she supports.

"I don't endorse many products," Rinna, who does not personally wear adult diapers, told Popeater's Rob Shuter. "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."
