There’s a new girl in town and she’s bringing her famous last name to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Eden Sassoon, the daughter of famous hairstylist Vidal Sassoon, has confirmed to E! News that she’s been filming for RHOBH.
“I can confirm that I’ve been filming. I’m not telling you if I’m a Housewife or a friend yet, but it’s been a blast so far,” Eden reveals.
“I thought I was a badass bitch, but this is going to be a tough crowd to keep up with,” she tells E! “Don’t worry though, I got this!”
While Eden may be new to the show she’s not entirely new to the RHOBH cast.
“She and Lisa Rinna have mutual friends, and her family has a history with Lisa Vanderpump. Eden’s father used to come into the restaurants all the time. Since filming started, she and Lisa Rinna have gotten really close,” a source reveals.
Additional sources tell Us, “She’s gorgeous, she’s a mom of two, she is a salon owner, and she also owns a Pilates studio. She’s a real go-getter. She does tons of charity work, and she’s so cool — she knows everyone in town. She has deep roots in L.A.”
Yet Eden doesn’t come without baggage. The former alcoholic revealed to Focus Magazine how kicking her drinking habit changed her life for the better.
“The addiction’s been lifted. But it’s the work and the truth and the honesty that I put into my life — but I always have. You’re not really truthful if you’re still, you know, kind of masking an addiction. So I think sobriety is a big thing. … There’s nothing to cover up, there’s no pills, there’s no grabbing for alcohol, there’s no smoking. You know, you might find me going to two classes at SoulCycle or taking an extra Pilates class, or maybe indulging in pizza,” Eden explained in 2014.
AATRH was the first to report that Eden was spotting filming RHOBH with Lisa Rinna. Now Eden has been seen hanging out with newbie Dorit Kemsley. The two new additions to the RHOBH cast hung out during the beginning of the week and documented their night out on Instagram.
“Love making new friends! Fun night with @edensassoon in Beverly Hills,” Dorit captioned a picture of her and Eden. To which Eden commented, “so much fun .. You make me laugh I love it!”
I think Eden is going to be an amazing addition to the cast. She’e friendly with several current cast members and has strong LA roots.
