Eden Sassoon is introducing herself in her first blogÂ of the season. She shares why she feels a deep connection to Lisa Rinna and tells viewers about her life so they can get to know her. She also reveals her apprehension going into game night next week.
“After having two kids and a marriage that was falling apart, Pilates became my escape from reality. But, the reality was that I had stopped taking care of my mind, body and soul. Being the man that he was, my dad questioned what he saw falling apart and breaking his heart at the same time. He simply asked me, â€œWhat are you going to do with your life?â€ I took that question to heartâ€¦and to therapy. Then I opened my first of two Pilates studios six months later. I wanted and needed to pay it forward to other women going through the same issues. Watch out world, here I come! #GameOn
After 15 years of two degrees of separation, I was excited to have Lisa Rinna be a part of my world and my passion. I gave the girls pink love Pilates toe socks to wear for class. Itâ€™s a constant reminder of #SelfLove.
Erika was reserved but rightly so! She was meeting a new person and was about to get her ass kicked by Amanda (our Eden by Eden Sassoon Pilates instructor). I think itâ€™s only a matter of time before she realizes that I am a love bug and easy to get along with. And boy did she rock that braid for class!
As a single girl in love with love, I thought it was really cool that Lisa and Harry Hamlin met at the Beverly Glen Centre where I own my Pilates studio. Itâ€™s fate! #EdensLoveStory
The fact that Lisa and my dad had a connection connects us on a deeper level, a level that I have a hard time finding in new (female) friends. And who are we kidding?! Lisaâ€™s Rinnaâ€™s hair is iconic, and in my eyes, she wears it so very well. But, just as a reminder, there is no hair more iconic than #VidalSassoon hair. â€œIf you donâ€™t look good, we donâ€™t look good.â€ â€“Vidal Sassoon #DontForgetIt
So about my interesting lifeâ€¦ There were four of us #Sassoon kids, and now there are three. My sister Catya, who was larger than life, found her peace in drugs and alcohol and did not wake up on January 1st, 2002. She left behind three children and three ex-husbands. When I look back on the 80s and my sister’s acting career, specifically Tuff Turf staring Kim Richards, I remember thinking, god sheâ€™s amazing. I wanna be just like her. She was the â€œcoolâ€ girl that everyone wanted to be like. Everyone was so ALIVE in the 80s, but I didnâ€™t know that it was the drugs and alcohol talking. Donâ€™t let me fool you, Iâ€™m four years sober from alcoholism and understand the struggle.
I wonder how game night will go? Will I be nervous? Will Kim remember me? Will everyone be drunk? Will I look good? Do I even remember how to play games? The only games Iâ€™m comfortable playing are with men!
Note to self: I love how Kyle is so proud of her man and just wants a little more attention. He says itâ€™s hard creating a brand, and maybe thatâ€™s my problemâ€¦ itâ€™s even harder to keep a brand alive. #Legacy”
