Eden Sassoon not returning to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 8

Eden SassoonWhen The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 8 premieres on the show a little bit later this year, Eden Sassoon won’t be a part of it.

In a post on her Facebook page, Eden (who had a recurring role throughout season 7 and found herself mixed up in a few situations here and there) offered up the following message about saying farewell to the series:

“I want to BE the one to share with everyone this news. I WILL NOT BE RETURNING TO #RHOBH NEXT SEASON. In receiving this #news I feel free & ALIVE to BE the REAL ME that was not shown to the #bravo world of viewers. I truly am #grateful for the experience & huge life lessons I was up against.”

Ultimately, it’s a fact of life that this franchise constantly brings people in and out, and that is something that you do have to consider when this sort of announcement is made. She’ll be just fine, so there is probably nothing that you have to worry about there. Also, you never know what the future holds, given that they have brought people back (or of course invited various people back) over the course of the series’ run.

It’s also possible that Eden’s exit is really just the beginning when you stop for a moment and think about some of the other changes that could be coming on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills going into season 8. There may be even larger cast changes by the time things are all said and done, and there probably should be given that one of the big tendencies on this show is to blow something completely out of proportion, distort it, and then spend way too long on it. Two seasons ago, it was Yolanda Hadid’s health struggle; meanwhile, this past season it was Kim Richards and what she was going through. We like a little bit of drama here and there, but the best thing about the franchise is when they really mix some of that with the opulence and the over-the-top ridiculous factor. It’s this combination that really brings a smile to your face.
