Eden Sassoon has been getting a lot of heat in the media for her approach in getting to know Kim Richards. Eden has four years of sobriety under her belt, and addiction is common in her family, so of course she was intrigued and eager to form a real, meaningful relationship with Kim.
She was introduced to Kim’s situation by Lisa Rinna, who made it seem like Kyle and Kim were comfortable talking about Kim’s struggles. Lisa also exaggerated on Kim’s condition big time, which made Eden assume that Kim was in a much worse place than she is. This friendship was doomed from the start.
Following Tuesday night’s episode fans were criticizing Eden for asking too many questions, and being way too involved in Kim’s situation.
Eden responded to fans on Twitter, asking them to leave this feud alone. Not only that, but she revealed that she “admires” Kim.
I reached out to Eden who confirmed she meant everything in this tweet.
Kim has many years in the spotlight under her belt and she’s gone through some very hard times in the public eye. She’s done a lot of work on herself, and is now thriving like an amazing mom and grandmother should!
Personally I think that Eden and Kim got off on the wrong foot, and this was all fueled by the exaggerated details Eden was told about Kim. I also have to add that Eden’s not being perceived in the way she deserves, because there is so much that we haven’t seen. As we told you, Eden was brought onto the show for a reason, and I think the Richards’ sisters need to be upset with some of the RHOBH crew as well; once she was officially cast, her role on season 7 was quite obvious!
If Bravo is going to explore such a deep subject, they should have Eden and Kim together, educating fans and inspiring viewers with how far they’ve come!
