Eden Sassoon and Dorit Kemsley Dish On Joining RHOBH


Eden Sassoon, daughter of legendary hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, will be a fresh face on the new season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season and in a new interview she is admitting that not everyone in the cast took to her rebellious nature.

The 43-year old herself as a “mother-of-two, single, sober, business owner,” and said she’ll add a “youthful sense of stepping outside of the box.”

“There are things where they look at me and they’re like, ‘What? No?'” she explained. “I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, this is exactly what I’m going to do.’ And they’re like, ‘We’re calling your mom. We’re calling your parents.'”

Eden’s father passed away in 2012 and her mother is actress Beverly Adams. She says she has always done whatever she has wanted to do.

“I’m sort of like a younger sister that they want to say, ‘No, you can’t do that.’ I’m a little bit of a rebel in a fun playful way,” she explained to The Daily Mail.

Sassoon continued, “When you add anyone into the group it changes. I think that we as humans mirror one another. And I think that I can only bring who I am and make them look at who they are. I try to get involved in a situation or talk to people in a way that’s different. And I’m not perfect by any means and that will obviously be shown.”

Eden had not watched much of the series before joining the cast, but still wanted to take a chance by signing on.

“I think that at this point in my life with everything that’s going on and where I stand as the woman that I am, it was a yes,” she said. “Let’s open this door and see where it takes me. And if the stars align or things are meant to be then that’s what I’m going to do.”

As for this season of the show? She thinks it may be calmer than last year. “There was a lot of healing that went on this season,” she said. “And that was really nice to be a part of and hopefully I was intentionally there for that.”

Meanwhile, Dorit Kemsley said it was her very dear friend, Lisa Vanderpump, that convinced her to join the cast and she wanted to show her family on the series.

“I think that I bring a lot of fun and definitely honesty,” Kemsley said. “I’m a mom of two young babies and it’s definitely our family life and our businesses. And I think that the fashion part of it was a lot of fun as well.”

Kemsley admitted she’s only watched a little bit of the show. “In truth, I’ve spent the last few years having babies, so I didn’t really have much extra time on my hands,” she explained. “I have seen the show. I did do a little bit of catch up homework obviously once I’d signed, but I wouldn’t say that I was all that prepared for doing it.”
