According to Candiace Dillard, there was no body-shaming.
Candiace Dillard received some backlash from “Real Housewives of Potomac” fans because she called Ashley Darby wide-bodied. The insult was made after Ashley told Wendy Osefo about Gizelle Bryant’s comments about the rumors about Eddie Osefo. All of this went down during the trip Candiace planned to Williamsburg, Virginia.
During the After Show, Candiace once again denied body-shaming Ashley. “She’s a spinner. And you want to make everything about what it’s not. She tried to make what I said ‘mom-shaming.’ And it was not.” She continued, “I like to diversify my insults. I wanted to change it up. But it had nothing to do with her “being wider” because she just had a baby.”
She wanted to make it clear that she meant what she said. “I meant what I said. I said you brought your wide-bodied a*s in here to start mess and drama.”
Regardless, Candiace did give Ashley compliments. “I honestly said and I still believe that she looked good to have just delivered a baby. And I say that as someone who can’t stand her a*s. I think she looked good and she looks great now. What I said had nothing to do with her mom body.”
She continued, “If and I when I get pregnant and I deliver a baby and my body changes, it will be what it will be. But I know it’s going to become and turn into this mom-shaming game. And that’s fine because that’s what she will do. It had nothing to do with her mom body. It had to do with her being wide because she’s full of bullsh*t and she needs to get a colonic and release the bullsh*t from her colon.”
The rest of the cast believes that Candiace did body shame Ashley. Karen Huger said that she knows Candiace is a good person but she has to learn how to say less sometimes. “Candiace just needs to be quiet sometimes.”
