Eden’s hard fought sobriety is addressed — along with how she is adjusting to her “friend of” role on the Bravo hit.
Eden labels Kim her “sisterly sober friend,” and shares her scattered thoughts on the woman who once worked with her deceased sister, Catya. Eden’s sister’s life was cut short by a drug overdose, in 2002.
“When I see Kim, I held her as if there was a part of my sister there, because it was so ‘then’ when Cat was still alive,” Eden explains. “There’s that connection..for me at least. I think that’s what gets me in trouble. I’m holding onto something that’s gone—through her. Yet she’s struggling in a way that I understand, because I’m four years sober.”
Eden works to articulate the Kim/Rinna/Kyle dynamic, and how the trio can’t seem to “get it right.” Eden also notes that Rinna needs to “work on behavior.”
Interestingly, Eden comments that a gal “needs some tough, thick skin to have this group of friends, and do what we do.” Eden even admits that she called in her mom for support and a hug.
“Somebody hug me, somebody tell me this is ok, somebody tell me I’m not about to just explode in a whoaaa…” Eden says, adding, “when you’re really trying to search for peace, and you can’t necessarily find it.”
Eden promises that she “finds the beauty at the end of whatever this looks like…” so stay tuned!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs tonight, at 9:00 pm ET, on Bravo.
