Candiace Dillard believed Mia Thornton crossed the line.

Real Housewives of Potomac” star Candiace Dillard doesn’t run away from tense moments on the show. On the previous season, she had a messy feud with newbie Mia Thornton. Candiace invited all the ladies except Ashley Darby to the video shoot for “Drive Back.” Her mother Dorothy was there as well. And when Chris Bassett wasn’t able to secure the cars for the shoot, it led to Mia asking Dorothy some questions. She asked if Candiace was paying Chris to be her manager. Eventually, Dorothy felt comfortable enough to speak her mind. She said that Chris quit his job to become a househusband.

Wendy Osefo told Candiace about Mia’s conversation with Dorothy. When Candiace confronted Mia, Mia called the music video low budget. And Candiace responded by calling Mia Thornton’s mother low budget. At the time, Candiace didn’t know that Mia’s mother is a recovering drug addict. So this was a controversial moment.

Interestingly enough, some of the fans of the show felt like Candiace should have taken issue with her mother’s actions at the shoot, not just Mia’s.

Well, Candiace addressed all of this during a recent interview. She believes that the other women on the show use her mother for a storyline.

    Her mother likes the attention and willingly runs her mouth. She’s not a victim. Also, they all use each other for a storyline. That’s how an ensemble cast works.

    I don’t understand the Candiace hate. She’s one of the most authentic on RHOP.

    I see there’s another Natalie posting. HEY QUEEN 👋🏾!!
    Candiace should be a comic. I laughed at using her Mother as a storyline. If anyone wants to be seen it’s her.
    The Southern Mom apology was bullswankey too. Her Mom gave a fake apology to Chris. She doesn’t like that man.

    Candiace used Ashley for a storyline many times. Just like that time she made Ashley’s miscarriage her storyline. So she needs to stop it. There is no solo star on this show. They all bring something necessary and rely on each other for content. Using each other for storylines is what they all do.

    Her mother acts like she wants to be the Housewife. She’s always ready to throw Chris under the bus for screen time. She’s the problem. Not the other cast members.

    Candiace continues to misdirect her anger and it’s exhausting. The other women on the show aren’t the issue. The issue is her mother doesn’t respect her marriage or her husband. So she continues to do this every season. It ain’t about TV. It’s a bigger issue that can’t be solved until her mother respects her marriage.

      Candiace and her mother is worthless. They both are thirsty.

    Candiace’s mother is no victim and is definitely not allowing herself to be used;she’s a willing participant and enjoys the camera time and attention. In fact, I can see her mother auditioning for a peach in Atlanta since she lives there.
