Lisa Vanderpump is defending her friend Kyle Richards when it comes to Eden Sassoon calling her an enabler and questioning her sister Kim’s sobriety in her blog this week. Vanderpump says when she met with Eden at her house she had no idea about the conversations Eden was having with Lisa Rinna at the time. Lisa says that perhaps Eden’s perception of Kim and Kyle’s relationship and what’s going on isn’t the reality and perhaps she is judging based on Rinna’s axe to grind with Kim. Read what else Lisa had to say about the situation below.
“Well hello. Once more I will try to dissect these complicated dynamics as we progress down this path, a rocky terrain as we venture forward. Firstly, loved seeing EJ in Greece fulfilling her dreams. Life is so short and punctuated by memorable experiences for sure. That is one that should be firmly imprinted on her mind.
For the life of me, I cannot comprehend how this story is so rapidly progressing in a direction I didn’t predict… How can one diagnose another individual after a fleeting interaction?
I spoke of this last week, as Eden inappropriately questioned Kyle on the family history in regard to alcoholism.
When Eden came to Villa Rosa for tea, I was blissfully unaware of the conversation between LR and her regarding Kim’s sobriety, the shopping expedition where LR had stated Kim was near death and Kyle was an enabler, an opinion deduced from what exactly? Well, maybe we will be enlightened as to her findings later.
Kyle had mentioned that Eden seemed to be a little invasive, questioning her in regard to an “alcoholic gene,” feeling that there was no basis for her inquisitiveness, as they barely knew each other. I believe I was unaware that LR was present as Eden interrogated her but sat silently.
So Eden came to tea. I mentioned previously that I knew her father, a kind, eloquent, iconic man, a man who I wish I had known better, as I had enjoyed the lunches at his house where he and his wife had kindly invited us, and engaging with him at SUR, laughing and uniting over our British bond. So there was a small conduit to Eden. I lamented over the time I had also been in her sister’s company, as she had passed, so I was curious about Eden and welcomed her to our group. We had an interesting conversation until it turned to Kyle. Loyalty is of paramount importance to me so, yes, I was vociferous in my defense of Kyle, and I speak from a position of strength. My strength is a direct result of witnessing Kyle do her utmost to deal with a complicated sibling relationship, a relationship, albeit extraordinarily convoluted, and often perplexing, but supportive nonetheless, and enabling has never entered this equation, and I remain stalwart in my defense of that notion.
So Eden waffled on about a recent relationship, and I was bemused by her judgement…her speculating over this man she had recently been involved with, and you can see the confusion so evident in my eyes. Swans flapping, dogs barking, ponies neighing LOL. Everybody present was in agreement…
Something that baffles me is the notion that anyone is authorized to speculate in a public domain. They are bviously disregarding the ramifications, the ripple effect as loved ones view these statements on somebody’s welfare. Somebody being Kim, who has struggled publicly and endured much criticism as she has battled demons and desperately tried to overcome this insidious disease for the sake of herself and family.
So I ask you, you who are watching closely and who have witnessed pretty much the same as I have, as I was not present for many of these conversations either… I ask you this: Is Eden’s perception and judgement of Kim Richards formed from the brief amount of time at two social situations? Or is it a judgement that has been brewed, construed by an interference from a person who has an axe to grind? Alternatively, another notion I briefly entertained was the fact that this woman who had lost her sister, struggled with sobriety herself and had obviously copious amounts of experience regarding alcoholism, was seeing something others weren’t, in regard to Kim? Analyzing her anxiety, in regard to her upcoming daughters birth as a an inkling that she was in danger of relapsing? I was briefly confused as to how much credence her opinion warranted. I have little experience when it comes to these matters. I wondered if her own path might have given her more insight than I was capable of.
I soon dismissed that and rightfully so. You will see.
The party held for PK was a jovial affair. Of course I was well aware that there would be an extraordinary scenario behind the black curtain, and I hope that the years I have spent on this earth (and there have been many LOL) have resulted in the fact that you can’t pull the wool over my eyes. I am more astute and perceptive maybe than some, and if there is bullsh–, I can smell it from a distance, regardless of the sugar coating it is covered in.
That is why it is my conclusion that a little tiny bird might be fluttering around Miss Sassoon’s ear, tweeting an opinion that is a result of a grudge that has festered over the last couple of years. We will see, and just as the black curtain was pulled back, we will also see a greater reveal soon.”
