    RECOVERY HOUR REWIND: Eden Sassoon| The One and Only

    A look back at our favorite 2021 interviews!
    APRIL 2021 Eden began her career as a consultant and beauty expert in Beverly Hills. She gained critical acclamation after appearing in the popular BRAVO TV series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She entered the show on its seventh season and captured the attention of the viewers in no time.
    As the daughter of the late beauty icon Vidal Sassoon and Beverly Adams, Eden is no stranger to the LA lifestyle, that once brought her to her knees.
    Living in recovery from alcohol use disorder, and being a self-professed addict, Eden shares with Lori all things family (Dad, ex-husband, children and siblings). A tender moment when discussing Eden's sister Katya's untimely (but timely) death. 
    There is no topic off limits as Eden openly discusses her time (and current opinions) of the Bravo TV show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the struggles of being a single momma (though also the 3rd wheel of her ex-husband [baby daddy] and new wife's relationship), her new adventure with SWAY TV and AMAZON LIVE... oh, and the chaffing that occurs when riding the Peloton exercise bike. 
    These two get right in to it and promise a follow up episode as they have just scratched the surface of The Woman Behind the Name.

Not just any recovery podcast

Lori tells it like it is. Her unique voice and ability to dig through the jargon and nuances of sobriety is what sets this podcast apart

Just what I needed....

I have been listening to the Recovery Hour pod casts over the past few weeks. I wasn’t sure what to expect.... an interesting story, education, comedy, etc. what I got was just what I needed. Listening in on very real conversations. Truly hearing about real life (and recovery). Great talent from Lori in her role as creator and host!!! I love the depth of the sharing that provides that relatability to each of the guests. “Interviewing” can be hard. This feels like home ❤️
