RHOBH season 7 took a heavy turn when Eden Sassoon stepped on the scene. She’s a supportive, sober woman who truly cares about those around her; so when Lisa Rinna told her that fellow alcoholic Kim Richards was, “close to death,” she became very concerned.
When Lisa told Eden about Kim, she left the impression that Kyle and Kim were both comfortable talking about Kim’s issues. Even worse, she accused Kyle of being an enabler, who was terrified of losing her sister!
Eden’s only human, so given that she went through the same situation with her sister; she made it her mission to help the Richards’ sisters, and assure they didn’t suffer a tragic loss like she did years ago.
We saw earlier in the season that Lisa planted the seed, but ran away any time that Eden tried to address the issue on camera. Given this is a reality show, the issues need to play out on camera, which is exactly what Eden was trying to do!
On Tuesday night Lisa appeared on WWHL and completely threw Eden under the bus. She insisted that she and Eden had a conversation that didn’t air, where she told Eden that she was done talking about Kim, and blamed Eden for keeping the storyline going.
Here’s the thing, Lisa never copped to exaggerating about Kim’s condition. She never admitted that Kim wasn’t close to death, or that Kyle had not discussed Kim’s issues with her; Lisa claimed that she just told Eden to stop talking about it. Having gone through all that Eden did, it’s understandable why she still sought to help Kim out of the mess she was in.
This was all very confusing because if this type of conversation did go down, it made absolutely no sense as to why it wasn’t shown. We’ve been watching The Real Housewives for years, and we know it’s very easy for producers to blame everything on the new girl; but that wasn’t done here.
I had to get to the bottom of things, and reached out to Eden for her side of the story; as expected, Lisa wasn’t being 100% truthful about this situation!
“Lisa’s full of sh*t, this is crazy! I had such high hopes for a friendship with Rinna and I, we started on such a great note so I was hurt to see how things took a turn this season. Especially now that it’s airing, I had no idea she’d do this,” Eden confessed.
Then she elaborated, and didn’t deny that Lisa told her she couldn’t be involved in the Kim storyline anymore, but it wasn’t before the BBQ and Gatsby party, it was AFTER the Mexico trip.
Everything starts to make sense when Lisa Vanderpump tells Kyle exactly why Eden was so interested in Kim’s sobriety. Andy Cohen shared a sneak peak of tomorrow night’s RHOBH, and even Kyle seemed to understand where Eden was coming from; finally the season is falling into place!
“As you all saw, once she gave me this information (about Kim) she kept backing out and running away from me. You’ll see next week, she gets reemed, I mean really reemed. She comes back (I thought she’d beat the shit out of me honestly, it was bad) and you all will see next week. Who knows how they will show it, but she says what happened in Mexico was INSANE and she can’t have this drama in her life anymore. She backs out of the whole situation and tries to pin everything on me,” Eden explained.
Eden echoed the same sentiments on social media, and hopefully everything gets shown the way it really played out. Many RHOBH fans recognized that Rinna is running away from her role in the drama, and as more unfolds the truth will come out. Unfortunately, it looks like Eden was used by Rinna to get back at Kim Richards for the drama in Amsterdam that happened years ago; as we already told you Eden never watched before joining, so she honestly had no idea!
I love all of the RHOBH ladies and I hope things get worked out. Now that she knows the whole story, Eden recognized that Rinna exaggerated, and that Kim is doing everything she can to be healthy and live her life to the fullest!
