Eden Sassoon Opens Up About Her RHOBH Departure And Calls Out Lisa Vanderpump’s Ego!

Last week, Eden Sassoon confirmed that she was not returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the show's upcoming eighth season. Now, the daughter of the late legendary Vidal Sassoon reveals how she learned of her exit from the Bravo hit reality series, and how she let her co-stars know the news.

"I get a call...Great conversation. And at the end of it, I was like, 'Oh my God, I'm alive,'" she told E! News. "I'm alive again. I feel free and this end to that chapter, just a moment of time in my life, but a pretty big one because a lot of emotional stuff I worked through, is going to open the most beautiful things to come. And I wanted to tell people before people found out from different sources. And that was my way of sharing, you know, really, truly, an end is a new beginning and anything's possible now."

Eden admitted she had spoken with a few of her former co-stars. "Kyle and I spoke this morning through text and respect, respect for her to reach out and say the things and really say all the things she did. And you know? There's an untapped friendship there someplace deep because it was interesting between her and I. And I think we understand one another in a lot of ways. And Rinna and I, I reached out to her just kind of thanking her for the beautiful journey I had gone on with her."

The daughter of beauty icon Vidal Sassoon guest hosted Thursday night's The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro, where opened up about her exit from the show and also revealed that Lisa Vanderpump is not as charitable as she looks.

"We asked her to be a part of [the Nail and Bone fundraiser], and because of reasons of, I'm going to be honest, because I can't be half on the show, she chose not to. Which was amazing to me because he was giving a lot of his sales to maybe three or four different organizations, and because of some red tape bullshit, she said no," Sassoon said of Vanderpump.

"And I love Vanderpump and I respect her, but her exact comments were sort of, 'When you're ready to do an event that is solely on my property or my ground, I'll do it.' So it's ego."

"Because I commit and I made a commitment to them, I would’ve gone back because I knew that they needed me for unfinished business," she said. "And I made a commitment to them and to Bravo. But my spirit and soul would’ve just been getting dimmer and dimmer and dimmer, and so it would’ve -- I would’ve, honestly, I would’ve struggled for the next year of my life."

Despite her falling out with Rinna, Sassoon said she's grateful for the journey the two women shared and that she'll be her "biggest fan next season."

She also opened up about Bravo's "What What Happens Live" host and "Real Housewives" Executive Producer Andy Cohen.

"He's a great man. He's charismatic. He's got everything. But I'm not someone who's going to make my way to you and try to get attention. I'm not that person. If we naturally come together and we have a rapport and we start a conversation, great, but he is like the animals attack, literally attack, and even at one of our parties, my girlfriend was like, 'Go talk to him!' And I was like, 'No, why?'"

So what's next for Sassoon? "The Bachelorette"...maybe.

"I have a great idea. What about [a dating show for] women my age?" she suggested.

When asked why she wouldn't want to be the actual Bachelorette, Sassoon said: "One, because I think I'm too old, and because I don't drink."
