Candiace Dillard Bassett slammed Gizelle Bryant and Ashley Darby on Twitter.
Gizelle Bryant and Candiace Dillard Bassett are on bad terms these days. Candiace is furious that Gizelle has accused Chris Bassett of making her feel uncomfortable. And Gizelle claimed that the situation took place during the reunion for the previous season of “Real Housewives of Potomac.” Interestingly enough, Ashley Darby only made things worse during the recent episode. Wendy Osefo decided that the ladies needed to have a “burn session.” Her intention was to get everyone to put all of their issues on the table. In particular, Wendy has been clashing with Gizelle and Robyn Dixon.
Candiace thought that she was moving toward being in a good place with Ashley. Prior to Wendy’s event, Ashley even came to Candiace’s place to gossip a little and discuss her split from Michael Darby. So she was caught off guard when Ashley said that she had something to tell Candiace.
During the conversation, Ashley accused Chris of flirting with one of her friends at Karen Huger’s Spring Bling event. And she alleged that she heard that he sent inappropriate DMs to other women.
Ahead of the episode airing, Candiace tweeted, “I didn’t even know today was Sunday. 🥴 It’s #RHOP day, y’all 🌸 How excited are we to watch desperation fester for yet another episode? I am just unequivocally elated.”
A Twitter user responded, “If it’s just going to be desperation for a storyline then I may have to watch tomorrow. Also wouldn’t it be nice if she would have a storyline of her own? Like I would like to know more about her life at home, she had wonderful daughters.”
Candiace replied, “Can’t pimp your children out for two minute scenes forever. My whole family & my friends have shown up for me season after season on the show. & this ***** skates by having shown us nearly nothing. It’s a wonder she hasn’t scripted her own (yt) Karen- esq misconduct story sooner.”
She also threw jabs at Ashley, “And the other one… She is just following marching orders from White (yt) Karen. Two flops trying to make TV. And still a collective flop.”
Candiace Dillard Bassett believes colorism is an issue.
One fan of the show said Gizelle is just doing her job, “Not you mad at her treating #RHOP like what it is a JOB!! She clocked in and out deal with it.”
Candiace then wrote, “Mm. Contrary to popular belief, our show is about our real lives, our real families & our real friendships. The notion of ‘clocking in’ only holds true when you are showing up for your real life. Not the premeditated scripted off Broadway play that you made up on the way to work.”
She also responded when a Twitter user said that Candiace should have known that Gizelle wasn’t her friend. The person wrote, “You know Gizelle has never been your friend. No commonalities betwixt you two. Gizelle has 1 friend and that is Robyn Dixon. The rest of y’all are castmates. Stop playing with us.”
Candiace said, “Well. This is nuanced. I did think we were friends. I wouldn’t have had her in my home around my children and my husband if I didn’t think we were friends. And I respected her and her role as a villain on her show. Being a villain and insinuating ****** misconduct are different.”
After the episode aired, Candice also tweeted about the treatment of Wendy. Ashley, Mia Thornton, and Karen Huger expressed that they feel Wendy can be condescending at times.
“All bs aside. I cannot receive that Wendy needs to “own” that she can be a little condescending..that she rolls her eyes or her neck, etc. EVERYONE in this group is a condescending a-hole (myself included). Wendy is just darker AND rebuts better than the majority. Stop it. #RHOP”
She continued, “Ask yourself why you’re more offended when a dark skinned woman reads you versus when a white adjacent woman reads you. Those are YOUR problems #RHOP.”
