The current season of “Real Housewives of Potomac” has been a very messy one.

Not only has Ashley Darby been hit with another scandal involving Michael Darby, but her feud with Candiace Dillard is getting worse.

There are RHOP viewers who feel like Ashley is getting her just deserts.

However, some feel like Candiace is out of line.

Now Candiace wonders if some of the backlash she’s getting is due to colorism.

    Colorism? So was it colorism too when Candiace willingly threw the only other brown girl under a bus to get in cool with one of the green eyed bandits?

      Thank you! And she has shaded Kenya, another dark skinned woman, multiple times! Candiace is so fake and annoying!

        Candace needs to mind her business. If Charisse was still on the show, colorism would not be an issue. Candace mind your business and you will be a much happier person.

          I agree! Between Candance and Ashley I don’t know which one can’t keep their mouths shut. Those two tell everything. Some things don’t need to be repeated. ..

        It’s not colorism girlfriend, the backlash is because you act in a mean spirited spiteful manner. Ashley isn’t much better, but you know your being uber nasty and do it anyway. Your proud of what you think is witty repartee. It isn’t

      I think Candiace is very beautiful. I hope she doesn’t alter her looks in any way. However, talking about finances, cheating scandals, or Karen’s husband is not comparable to talking about someone’s miscarriage. But I enjoy watching Candiace on the show.

      Candice is annoying. What Ashley and her man do in their relationship is none of her business. If Ashley’s man is bis-xual then so what?? If Ashley don’t mind then nobody should mind! candice has NO proof that they were faking trying to get pregnant, its all based on assumption and ignorance and that is NOT okay! She needs to worry about getting a job and getting out of her moms arse.

      Candiace throws temper tantrums like a spoiled child. That is not flattering for supposedly a grown woman. Candiace is dead wrong with Ashley, stay out of her marriage and try to fix your relationship with your mother. Furthermore, Bravo I love you but that knife throwing business is not cool. I have no respect for people that thinks violence is the best way to handle things. If Candiace can’t control herself she should not be on there.

        Amen! She ruins the show! She starts crying over every little thing. Drama queen to the fullest!

      Candace. Your personality is ugly just like your mom

      Facts!!!! it’s not colorism the girl is just downright disgusting and doesn’t own any of her sh-t. she is nasty, rude , spoiled, and entitled. Bravo should’ve fired her a-s a long time ago for throwing that knife. I am so glad Monique beat the sh-t out of her its been a long time coming. She is just a horrible person to watch.

        I think Candiace Dillard can’t handle the truth.she really is immature and has a mean spirit.

    Ashley and her husband are strange and No one can deny that. Ashley is about to have a child with a man who likes woman. She is helping to create a broken home. I am still not sure what Candice did to turn viewers off.

      I do understand where Candice is coming from about the whole baby thing with Ashley. Most people do not drink when they are trying to have a baby or put themselves into stressful situations, especially if you have had complications in the past. Is Candice taking a bit far….maybe. I do understand. As for Ashley, she is always been messy to me. She always trying to get into other people’s business and put them out on display but when one fires back at her, she acts like she is so shock and so hurt. Here’s my thing why don’t the rest of them ask why Ashley is drinking sonmich as well. They were all greatly concern when the word was out out there gaht Monique was drinking heavenly. Ashley is worse. The only thing I see wrong that Candice did was to tell Giselle about what Monique said about Katie persona. Giselle is and has always been looking for an angle to hate on Monique. Monique was just talking about the two different perspectives that she had seen Katie at two different times. She not call her a slave. I just can’t.

        First of all, the concern about Moniques drinking, was that she had been driving after drinking and got in an accident. If that had been my friend , I would have been concerned. Candace is extremely aggressive and opinionated. Ashley had just lost a child, so no children at home. Are you supposed to abstain before pregnancy ? I think many mothers would say first you get pregnant, then you abstain. Candace and husband get by with help from her Mama. Be an independent young wife before you judge

      Ashley and her husband are strange and No one can deny that. Ashley is about to have a child with a man who likes OTHER MEN. She is helping to create a broken home. I am still not sure what Candice did to turn viewers off.

    Ashley gets dragged all the time. She just doesn’t cry about it like Candiace. Right now people are excusing Candiace’s disgusting behavior because they don’t like Ashley. Candiace needs thicker skin because truth be told, she should have been fired for that knife nonsense or demoted like Porsha was. But it’s not going to happen because Candiace is clearly getting a pass from Bravo.

      Candice is a spoiled brat who believes she is all that and a bag of chips. NOT!! SHe tries to give the image that she is so happy but I think she is a miserable person.

    So you accuse a woman of lying about having a miscarriage then threaten her with a butter knife and can’t understand why you’d get backlash? I mean you really can’t make this stuff up. It’s like we’re living in the twilight zone.

    This right here is an example of someone who is spoiled rotten and can’t navigate through the real world. What a delusional person this woman is.

    Colorism is too serious of an issue for her wretched self to be using as the reason people are rightfully calling her out on her maliciousness. If she can’t handle the backlash, maybe she should become a better person.

    Ashley and Gizelle are easily two of the most hated people on RHOP.

    Candice can talk about Ashley and her husband but get angry when someone talks about her mama makes no sense. Ashley has been messy before all up in Robyn and Juan’s business but Candice is acting just as messy.

    She needs a job! Lol. She has too much time on her hands… I’m sure her mom would appreciate her getting a job! Lol.

    Color has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Candiance is acting immaturely with regard to Ashley. With regard to her mom, Candiance needs to get a job!! She has no right complaining about her mom when she lives off her mom. Her mom has the right to act and complain all she wants. Get a job Candiance and start acting your age!!

  16. I know right

    July 4, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    Colorism well now that’s original. News flash they all black. So she just doesn’t wanna admit she is dead wrong

  17. I know right

    July 4, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    Girl Bye.Its not colorism It’s because you come off .As a self centered entitled lil rich girl on mommas money.Complaining about things you haven’t paid for.
    Ashley’s journey miscarriage,or her husband sexuality non of your business.
    But you can’t be mad when someone says they in your mommas house .Until you pay ALL of it.
    Good thing you married Chris seems like he has had to restrain you before.
    Anger Management classes seem to be needed.Just saying.

    It’s not colorism…its dislikerism. She is an acquired taste and I have not acquired her yet…I dislike Candace and Robin be amuse they are just mean.

    I think that Candiace is a spoiled brat & has absolutely no personality. She looks like a fool & offers NOTHING to the show. Her use of abuse on Ashley for camera time is so transparent & weak. She doesn’t even have the intellect to back up her position against Ashley. I like her husband, Chris. I wish him luck!

    And that b-tch of a mother that she has!? Can you imagine having a therapist who degrades her child on national television and also hits that child in the face with her purse?! No wonder Candiace is such an ugly, unhappy person! (She’s definitely a child.)

    Pretty funny that Candiace is grasping for reasons for the viewer backlash. Nice try with the colorism card, but no, you are just obnoxious & not cute at all!

    It’s not about color at all. I am so tired of people making everything about color when it’s not. This about Candice being disrespectful very thinkingshe can say what she wants and it’s okay when it isn’t. Let’s not forget Candice started all of this because of what she heard Michael said about wanting to sucome some man’s dingaling. Instead of taking Ashley aside and telling her what she heard she took ithe upon herself to judge Ashley and why she wanted to get pregnant.

    Candice need to mind her business she need a life and a JOB how she got on this show she need to leave her Mother will take care of her. Why as black women we bring each other down. She need to sit herself down and take care of her mother.I do not like her at all as a person she is a very unhappy person and it shows because of her MOTHER

    Oh come on! Candace is an entitled no talent brat. I can’t stand Ashley either, but Candace is all up in her business. She is so disgusting, she tells everyone her husband has a brown p-nis. Get rid of Candace, she crossed the line, and has some major mommy issues.

    Candace needs to get a life…seriously. She takes messiness to another level and I really dislike her. I thought she was fake and spoiled last season and she had gotten even worse this season. She is the one who is married and still living in her momma’s house but got the nerve to get mad at her mom for wanting to visit her house!! She parades around Potomac being messy AF and putting her nose in places where it don’t belong!! Until you experience being pregnant and having a miscarriage keep your mouth shut!!

    I don’t like candace at all. I hope she stays out of other people’s business(especially Ashley’s) next season.
