As the Backlash Rolls in, Candiace Dillard Feels Betrayed by Costars + Chris Bassett Claps Back

Candiace Dillard is receiving backlash for her comments about Mia Thornton’s mother.

Real Housewives of Potomac” star Candiace Dillard is no stranger to controversy when it comes to her actions on the show. Last year, fans couldn’t stop talking about her violent fallout with Monique Samuels. Now that Monique is off the show, Candiace, unfortunately, has been having issues with newbie Mia Thornton. It all started after Mia had some questions for Miss Dorothy during the “Drive Back” music video shoot. She asked if Chris Bassett is getting paid to manage Candiace’s music career.

For Candiace, she felt Mia crossed the line to ask this question. So she confronted Mia about this at Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon’s podcast event. After Mia called the music video “low budget,” Candiace promptly said that it’s Mia’s mother who is low budget.

Some of the ladies on the show believe Candiace went too far using the “your momma” clap back with Mia. This is due to the fact that Mia has shared that her mother is a recovering drug addict. A lot of fans of the show seem to agree with this sentiment. So they have been calling Candiace out for her actions on social media, even though Candiace would later say she didn’t know Mia’s situation at the time of the insult.

Hours ago, Chris responded to the backlash. And Candiace is beginning to feel as if her costars are turning on her.

    So does Chris’ ideology hold up still when Candiace called him a deadbeat dad and taunted him about his deceased father just because he said she was spoiled? Let me guess, he’ll keep enabling her behavior because he needs her and Dorothy to keep financing his lifestyle. How pathetic.

      I knew she was evil when she said that to Chris.

    Man karma is real. Candiace won’t stop until she ends up on an island by herself and pushed off RHOP. She’s not anywhere near as smart as she thinks she is. Reading a dictionary isn’t enough.

    It’s like clockwork. Next Candiace will say she’s only getting heat for dragging Mia’s mother because she’s dark skinned. And that husband of hers will go right along with the bullsh-t because before her, he couldn’t afford to pay child support.

    That wasn’t Candace husband made that wrote that reply
    I’m pretty sure that was Candace writing that mess. Doesn’t even sound like something Chris would say

    • Yep

      Yep. You can tell by the improper usage of ellipses (Candiace’s brand of tweeting) that Candiace most like tweeted that because in real life, Chris calls her out for her nonsense and she can’t take it.

    Candiance knows Wendy told her about Mia’s mother. No reason to PLAY as ifn you did NOT know. It was a low low blow!!

    Candiace wrote that bullsh-t a-s tweet from Chris’ account. It reads like the childish sh-t she writes on Twitter all the time. She’s always a victim and it’s a chore to watch any scene she’s in.

    Please bring Monique back as a friend. I dont see why Obama had her working for some part of his administration.

    Wrong road, wrong road. Candiace does not know how to play this game and it shows. It sucks because she had so much promise her first season.

      CANDICE ALWAYS WANTS TO PLAY VICTIM..WHEN SHE’S WRONG..THAT MOUTH IS WHAT GETS HER INTO TROUBLE ALL THE TIME..SO WHEN THE OTHER CAST MATES CALL HER OUT ON HER MESS..THEN THEY’RE AGAINST HER..SO SHE SAYS..SHE’S A SPOILED BRAT THAT CANNOT TAKE THE HEAT..AND NEVER WANTS TO ADMIT HER WRONGS YET PLAYS THE VICTIM..YOU SHOULD’VE LISTENED TO MONIQUE..SHE NEEDS SOME SEROUS COUNSELING..AND FOR CHRIS STAY OUT OF WOMEN’S BUSINESS.. REGARDLESS OF WHAT ONES ISSUE IS..YOU DON’T BRING MOTHER’S, CHILDREN, OR FAMILY INTO YOUR ARGUMENTS..SO CONTINUE TAKING THE MESS THAT YOUR WIFE DISHES OUT TO YOU..BUT SHE REALLY NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM ANY TV SCREEN, UNTIL SHE LEARNS HOW TO ACT..MEANING GROW THE HECK UP..PERIOD I DO NOT FEEL BAD FOR HER AT ALL!!! GIRL BYE & YOUR HUSBAND AS WELL..BLOOP!

    I want the Kenya comparisons to stop now. Kenya will admit when she’s wrong and apologize. She doesn’t play victim either. Candiace is a menace.

    I just don’t know why Monique is not coming back so that she can check Candiace. She is absolutely irrelevant on the show. Bravo house wives is not as good as it used to be. People are doing anything to sell their souls for attention.

      I don’t like Candiace! Too childish,vindictive, uncouth,spoiled, and all the mean adjectives you can think of describes her. Monique would have shut her down by now. Plus she doesn’t add to the show at all. Will most likely stop watching.Just tired of Candiace’s mean girl role. She takes it too far

    Candiace is always Acting like she’s the victim, she starts all that bullsh-t and want people to feel sorry for her. She needs to be put off the show she is to messy talk more stuff then she can’t take it when you come back!! Chris is her Puppet she talks to him disrespect and he kiss her a-s…. Bye to the both of them

MOTHER’S, CHILDREN & FAMILY ARE OFF LIMITS WHEN YOU’RE ARGUING WITH SOMEONE..YOU KNOW THAT..TURN THE SHOE AROUND..WHAT OR HOW WOULD YOU FEEL..AND AS FOR CHRIS..STAY OUT OF WOMEN’S FIGHTS..IF SOMEONE WAS TO DAY SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR KIDS THEN YOU WOULD’VE WENT OFF..SO PLEASE DON’T GIVE ME THAT WHAT YOU SAY IS WHAT YOU GET BACK..PLEASE REMOVE THIS CHILD FROM THE TV SCREEN..HER MOTHER HAS HER TOO SPOILED AND THAT’S HER PROBLEM..SHE GOT AWAY WITH TOO MUCH AS A CHILD..NO ONE HAS BETRAYED YOU CANDICE..YOUR MOUTH GOT YOU INTO TROUBLE..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH..GROW UP BEFORE YOU’RE BACK ON TV

    Always startin’ mess and then playing the victim. The next thing you know she’ll be dabbing at the corners of her eyes with the corner of a napkin. That just goes to show how immature she is. Chris go sit your homemaking a** down somewhere.

    Soooo..house husbands with no job (according to his MIL Dot) trying to deflect for your wife who you KNOW is an emotional wreck…hence the preview scence for next week when ONCE AGAIN Chris has to try to calm her ridiculous outbursts down so errrbody don’t see what I’m sure he sees in that house. That’s why he’s drinking midday and like he said “It’s always a good time to drink” In that household where I’m surrrre Mamma Dot is living as well. Let’s see if Chipmunk Dullard goes off on her mamma when she sees the clip where Mama seems to infer to Gizhell that she is still paying bills in that big house. When Chris says dorothy don’t pay no bills wiith his name on it..and you see Mamma Dot’s face. Nope, she’s paying the one with her daughters name on it…which is him by extension.

    I am going to have to take back some things I said about Monique, she made a statement that provoking someone is just as bad as putting your hands on them, many of you may not agree but I agree with everything she said, Candia_s loves to torment the h-ll out of a person, and if Karen did try to get her fired off the show I don’t blame her, they should have let Monique finish her off. This woman Candia_s is extremely irritating, she is angry that it came out her mother really is helping pay for her house and she is supporting her husband, Candia_s is just out of control it’s time for her to get another a_s beating. I really don’t care for Askale, because she defended Candiace even when she is degrading someone’s parent.

    I think it’s safe to say Karen feels vindicated about last season. Candiace is never going to change either.

    So no one can disagree with Candiace and tell her she’s wrong? That is not betrayal. That’s holding your friend accountable. I am glad Gizelle, Robyn, Wendy, Ashley, and Karen aren’t afraid to tell her that mothers are off limits. Askale should be ashamed of herself co-signing Candiace’s behavior just because she hates Mia.

    I believe Candiace takes her issues with her mother out on everyone else.

    Candice Bassett needs to be fired!!! I think Love and Hop is more her speed. RHOP are far too mature and sophisticated for her to hangout with!!

    Mia is just as messy and feels she’s better than everyone else ,she was dead wrong to question Candace mom she barley met about Candace business relationship with her husband,she started that drama with her nosey self ..same way she lied on Giselle telling Wendy she called her a weak a-s b-tch ..but I will agree peoples mama’s and kids should be left out and not spoken off .Period

    Rat face beaver looking Candice needs a serious beat down!! Her mouth is going to keep her in trouble!! Monique s pulling of her hair is just a Segway to a real a-s whipping!!! After the last episode she needs to be fired and “drive her and Chris’s a-s back to the townhouse her momma was letting her live in!! Cancel Candice and Chris!! Their both thirst traps looking and dying things for ratings!!

    Candiace has been a problem since she entered RHWOP. She’s very disrespectful to everyone and would never be a role model for anyone. Bravo really needs to let her go. Her behavior see to be getting progressively worse too. Her language is awful and she is supposed to be educated. NOT!! Please remove her immediately. You are already losing fans. Thanks

    FIRE ON DECK!!!! IT’S DEFINITELY TIME FOR CANDACE TO BE FIRED. Now does BRAVO & everyone else see that Candace Mouth, attitude & behavior is what caused the problem with Monique last season * the season before when she was pregnant. Candace is going to reap what she is sowing in those DC Streets sooner or later. She is the problem.

    This is the same thing that happened with Monique. Candace needs to stop running her mouth. She acts like she can back up her words but, then plays victim and wants to get the courts involved. She started this… Please stop writing checks your behind can’t cash. Everyone has a breaking point.
