Rookie part-timer, Eden Sassoon, mixed with all of the ladies during Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and made quite a first impression.
Eden participated in a game night, hosted by Kyle Richards, and is sharing her thoughts about her first girl party in the Bravo spotlight.
Eden begins her jumpy blog by giving a nod to cast mate, Dorit Kemsley. Dorit joked during the episode about what she perceived as Eden’s lesbian vibe — and although Dorit is no Justin Bieber, Eden clearly loved the attention.
“I kind of wish we were all naked (#FreeLove), but I guess it didn’t matter. Dorit was already undressing me with her eyes. And remember, I told you guys last week that the only games I like to play are with men!”
Eden writes that game night was a blast, and was highlighted by the asphyxiating hug felt ‘round America. Eden claims that Kim “remembered her” —at least in her own mind. Kim stated on Watch What Happens Live that she still does not know Eden.
“Game night was so f—ing fun! Was I nervous? Not at all. Did Kim remember me? Yes, and she got the biggest Eden hug! Was everyone drunk? A few. Did I look good? Hot, check! Was I still good at games? #Winner”
Eden lays out her scattered thoughts, noting that she had no idea what was going on around her. But as one who always goes deep—an empty stare just wouldn’t do.
“I honestly didn’t know what they were talking about. There was so much back and forth, I just sat there with a blank stare. As the one who always tries to understand the deeper meaning of things, this one was even too much for me to figure out. #MatrixMind”
Eden “let” Kim and Rinna hash it out—but then intervened to offer her own bizarre brand of clarity, stepping into the drama between the ladies.
“I let the girls battle it out until I heard a different conversation that was hitting too close to home. I couldn’t just sit there and listen to Lisa Rinna and Kim go at it. On one hand, I have my friend, who I just gave a healing crystal to, which was supposed to release toxic and emotional old pain and blocked energy (#DidntWork), and another woman who I relate to through sobriety, and they’re about to throw down… I felt like my allegiance was with Rinna, but I felt Kim’s deep sadness, and they weren’t hearing each other. As much as I didn’t want to get involved, I personally couldn’t watch them go at one another without speaking my truth. If I could stop and get them to hear each other, I felt like I could shift the energy.”
Eden is happy that she connected with Rinna — indeed a match made in heaven. The duo agreed that the intensity of their connection was a thing of beauty. The unprecedented depth was real — at least for one episode.
“On a lighter note, I love that Rinna knows I have no judgment and admire her. We go deep, quick. She said, “You see me and hear me.” I mean does it get better than that? It feels good to connect, unfortunately, through the loss of sisters and fathers. Always when we’re together, I reassure her that it’s okay to be her and feel what she’s feeling. #Truth”
Eden writes that things get messy real soon — but at least she “got taken from behind at my first game night.” Glass half full, and all that.
