As the Real Housewives of Potomac filming continues, the rumors are flying. You may have heard some mention of an “inappropriate interaction” taking place between Gizelle Bryant and Chris Bassett during the season 6 reunion taping. The blogs are alive. So far, nothing has been confirmed. Coincidentally, and I’m sure totally unrelated, there seems to be a public falling out taking place between Gizelle and Candiace Dillard Bassett right now.
@JaysRealityBlog tweeted a screen shot of Candiace’s Instagram following list. The caption said,”Candiace has unfollowed Gizelle on the gram as Season 7 filming continues!” Followers seemed split on whose side they were on. One person speculated, “Gizelle used Candiace to get rid of Monique [Samuels]. Gizelle is now focusing on getting rid of Candiace.”
We all know that Gizelle has never really been a fan of Candiace’s assistant, Chris. She was adamant that he was coasting on Candiace’s ‘success’ saying, “I see her husband, that by trade is a chef, all of the sudden not be cheffing anymore and decides to be a manager, it just … gave me little yellow flags.”
Candiace, predictably, had something to say about Gizelle’s opinion. Don’t come for her personal chef! She shot back saying, “[Gizelle will] come for whomever if she thinks is going to make the show do well, which I respect. Someone once said to me you have to respect your villains. And I respect her for that.” Karen Huger must have loved that one.
Prior to filming, a blind item about a “problematic east coast housewife” was released. People were predicting Candiace may not even be a part of season 7. Eventually, Candiace shot down the rumor saying,“Wow. I was trending? You all really want me to be that girl, don’t you?”
A few weeks later, once again, fans thought Candiace may have ceased filming for season 7. She tweeted, “Well. When one door closes, another will open.” Does that mean she has hopped onto another opportunity and left the show behind?
One thing that is confirmed; Askale Davis will not be joining the Real Housewives of Potomac cast for season 7. It’s no real loss. While I happen to have loved Askale, she truly was truly no match for what Mia Thornton was bringing us. Speaking of which, I can’t wait to see where Mia and Karen fall on the Gizelle vs. Candiace drama.
