There’s a new girl in the mix! Eden Sassoon will be appearing on season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a friend of the cast, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

Sassoon, 43, the daughter of late beauty pioneer Vidal Sassoon (who passed away in 2012), will fit in perfectly with returning stars Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen Davidson, Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards, an insider close to the cast tells Us.

"She's gorgeous, she's a mom of two, she is a salon owner, and she also owns a Pilates studio,” the source says. “She's a real go-getter. She does tons of charity work, and she's so cool — she knows everyone in town. She has deep roots in L.A."

In a 2014 interview with Focus Magazine, the single mom — who reportedly dated Jesse McCartney from 2011 to 2012 — revealed that she is a reformed alcoholic. She candidly spoke with the outlet about how kicking her addiction changed her life for the better.

“The addiction’s been lifted. But it’s the work and the truth and the honesty that I put into my life — but I always have. You’re not really truthful if you’re still, you know, kind of masking an addiction,” she explained at the time. “So I think sobriety is a big thing. … There’s nothing to cover up, there’s no pills, there’s no grabbing for alcohol, there’s no smoking. You know, you might find me going to two classes at SoulCycle or taking an extra Pilates class, or maybe indulging in pizza.”

Season 6 of RHOBH welcomed newbies Kathryn Edwards and Erika Girardi. Though Girardi, 45, is expected to return, Edwards, 51, confirmed her departure from the show back in June. That same month, Bravo vet Yolanda Foster announced that she would be exiting as well, due to health concerns stemming from Lyme disease, which the hit show had documented. 

Bravo has yet to announce a premiere date for season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
