Lisa Rinna Confronts Eden Sassoon About Their Talk About Kim Richards

On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Rinna came face-to-face with Eden Sassoon after she accused Eden of “stabbing [her] in the back” and having “thrown [her] under the bus” by spreading lies about her to Lisa Vanderpump.

In a previous episode, Eden revealed to Lisa Vanderpump that she had taken interest in Kim and Kyle Richards’ situation because it Was Rinna who suggested Kim Richards — a recovering addict — might be in the middle of a relapse and was “this close to dying.” Sassoon also detailed how Rinna had called Kyle “an enabler” for continuing to support Kim’s substance abuse problems.

Vanderpump told Kyle what Rinna had said, and when confronted, Rinna denied remembering saying any of those things about Kim. “I do not ever remember saying that,” Rinna told Kyle. “If I did it, I will cop to it. I just don’t know if I said those words. I don’t know if I said those words!”

However, Rinna did say those words and Eden had no problem reminding her when they met up to discuss what had gone down. “I told Vanderpump the truth!” Sassoon said. “I went and talked to her — I didn’t say anything that wasn’t said [by you]. I don’t make sh*t up out of the blue! … I said what you said to me and I told it obviously to someone who threw it all back on you. And instead of saying, ‘You know what, I did say this to Eden — this is how I feel,’ you went [and threw yourself] under the bus.”

“Lisa said it,” Sassoon later told the cameras. “I never put words in that woman’s mouth. She said what she said.”

But Rinna still claimed she couldn’t remember what she had said. “Did I say she was close to death? I do not remember saying that,” she said. “I don’t remember saying it so I said if I said it, I would own up to it.”

“Eden’s quite adamant about the fact that I said those things, but it’s hard for me to remember and to even believe that I would say those things in present tense,” Rinna told viewers. “I don’t remember that.”

However, Rinna was not about to let Eden off the hook for going to her rival Vanderpump with this information. “I cannot remember having a conversation with Kim saying things about Eden. And now Eden has created this chaos and gone to Vanderpump,” Rinna said. “I’m not happy.”

“I was in Mexico and I thought it was going to be really fun and then it wasn’t so fun,” Rinna recounted. “I don’t understand Eden — it was a really strange moment. Those girls had me up against a wall, literally. I’d love to know why instead of coming to me and talking to me directly, you went to Lisa Vanderpump and talked to her.”

Rinna felt betrayed. “I feel like you and I have a relationship, at least I thought, where you could come to me,” she said. “We’ve been very open and honest with each other. Like super open and honest. Maybe too soon.”

“Why would you go to Vanderpump?” she added. “I mean, Vanderpump was like having an orgasm she was so excited this was happening. That’s not okay!”

Eden explained she needed an impartial party to speak to. “I needed to explain myself to somebody who could just sit from an outside perspective,” she said. “I’m not a troublemaker!”

“Do not go behind my back and talk about me with these other women and then expect me to be there for you,” Rinna said to Eden. “Because I do not like that — that is not okay with me. You know well enough to come to me. I want to like you, I like you a lot. And this felt — it hurt me.”

Meanwhile, Kyle filled her sister Kim in on all the drama that was happening. “I think it is impossible for Lisa Rinna to not talk about me,” said Kim. “She’s been able to push me and push my buttons and watch me flair up and react and I think Lisa realizes she can’t do that anymore. She spends a lot of time running around talking about [Kyle] and I, but she’s not putting any focus on herself.”

Kyle replied, “Well that’s what people like to do. They like to set little fires so no one focuses on them. It’s bad Karma. They’re going to get bad karma.”

“I really want to get to the bottom of who said what between Lisa Rinna and Eden,” Kyle said. “I know that whenever I find out I’m going to be really pissed off. I just don’t know who I’m pissed off at yet.”

Eden was also looking forward to that conversation. “I’m excited to tell Kyle what has happened,” she said. “I don’t make sh*t up. I just don’t. … The truth is the truth and the truth will set us all free.”
