Eden Sassoon may have been the only one who actually enjoyed The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills dreaded game night! Though she did mildly insert herself into the drama between Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards, Eden says it was done out of empathy for both women, who she says need to actually listen to each other at some point. Wishful thinking?
In her blog, Eden thanks Kyle Richards for hosting the night and jokes about Dorit Kemsley’s very sudden and very bizarre attraction to her: “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!”

“Game night was so f—ing fun!” gushes Eden. “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”
But not everyone was initially as warm and inclusive as Eden expected – notably Lisa Vanderpump. Eden reflects, “Watching it back, when I first walked in the queen greeted me with a bit of a cold shoulder (said in a British accent). Happy to say she warmed up to me and quickly popped a squat poolside for a great talk. It was cut short thanks to a few of the women. #DRAMA”
It’s safe to say that anyone walking into this game night cold would have been confused about the level of chatter surrounding a pair of damn panties! Of the incessant drama surrounding Erika Girardi’s perceived faux pas, Eden jokes, “I was sitting there thinking, who are these women and WTF are they talking about. Who does this after all the fun we just had? They’re obviously pros at these types of games. 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”
But things took a turn when Lisa and Kim began dredging up the slimy muck of their eternal issues with one another. Eden admits she felt the need to intervene on behalf of both women because the matter felt very close to home.
She blogs, “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.”
Although Eden’s intervention did elicit an apology of sorts from Lisa R, it obviously won’t do much to mend her tumultuous relationship with long-time nemesis, Kim. But Eden is more hopeful about her own friendship with Rinna – maybe because there are crystals involved?!
Eden reflects on her lunch with Lisa R: “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”
“Rinna asked me, ‘What are you afraid of?’ I’m afraid of everyone leaving or pushing everyone away,” confesses Eden, who spoke in some detail about her childhood trauma and current sobriety. Deep connections aside, Eden teases that perhaps Lisa needs a different kind of therapy next time?
“Well, if crystal therapy didn’t work, maybe retail therapy will! I’m going to need my kind of therapy (#Acupuncture #Pilates #Chiropractor #Massage #Bumble) after Rinna and I start to dig ourselves a big hole. #PassTheShovel…Note to self: Bring Rinna BIGGER crystals. #Healing”
