I love when a new Real Housewife joins a show and feigns a close connection to a current cast member. We all know that a casting agent most likely brought a woman onto the show. Instead, we have to pretend that two people are friends when they might have met once or they have one mutual friend in common.
Unfortunately for Wendy Osefo, she joined Real Housewives of Potomac as a friend of Candiace Dillard’s, who has been very polarizing (which is a nice way to put it). Even so, she has been very impressive so far, despite whatever shade Karen Huger wants to throw in her direction.
Recently, the Bravo network has come down on its talent for offensive social media posts. Vanderpump Rules fired Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for their racist tweets that resurfaced from years prior. Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Pete Hunziker got fired from the show, and subsequently edited out of the show after sharing a racist “joke” and then his follow-up tweets didn’t help the situation.
So, what’s going to happen to Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard? Her homophobic and transphobic tweets recently came to light. In response, she issued an apology talking about how much she’s changed, promising that she is an LGBTQIA+ ally, despite her past sentiments. As of this moment, Bravo, a network that has touted itself as being supportive of the LGBTQIA+ community, has been silent on this. Could that be because Candiace brings so much drama to Real Housewives of Potomac? She, just like the others, issued apologies for her horrendous comments. However, she has faced absolutely zero consequences.
We’re only a handful of episodes into Real Housewives of Potomac season 5, but damn the drama is flowing. Such an epic franchise. New Housewife Wendy Osefo is already making statements about the “bullying” she endured all season. Karen Huger is saying Gizelle Bryant is jealous of Monique Samuels. Then there’s Candiace Dillard claiming some housewives wanted to question the paternity of Monique’s son. And if you have a pulse you’ve hopefully seen the season teaser of the physical fight between Candiace and Monique.
As a change of pace, the recent episodes have also included insight into Ashley Darby’s post-partum struggles. Don’t worry though. My girl is about to come through with some messy shenanigans for us to enjoy.
Candiace Dillard Bassett was left dumbfounded at the end of last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac. In her eyes, she’s the victim of a gang up. The new alliance between Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels is her worst nightmare right now. Everyone at the table wants her to give an apology, and she wants no part of it. Does Candiace have any true friends in this group? Besides Wendy Osefo, maybe not.
After all of the drama last year in her personal life, who would’ve thought Ashley Darby would invite them all to her home? This Sip and See is going to be lit. Charrisse Jordan is going to be there, and we might finally get some interaction between her and Monique. So many rumors are flying. ADDRESS THEM.
Sundays have become the best night of the week thanks to Real Housewives of Potomac. The ladies are really on their game this season. On tonight’s episode, Ashley Darby hosts a sip and see event for the ladies to meet her baby Dean. In real life, this sounds like a sweet event where everyone would be soft-spoken and considerate of an infant. But, on this show, it’s not gonna go that way.
Instead, Ashley will sit there holding baby Dean while the Real Housewives of Potomac cast argues. Candiace Dillard calls Monique Samuels a “flip-flopper,” but Monique isn’t having it, telling Candiace that she is the true flip-flopper in the group. Candiace’s friend Wendy Osefo and majorly stirs the pot asking the group which women are really friends. Clearly, they orchestrated this to redirect the narrative after the women came down on Candiace during last week’s episode.
Too many reality TV stars have put out music. Sometimes the music is “so bad that it’s good.” Other times, it’s just an embarrassing waste of time. Once in a blue moon, the track is actually a good song.
Recently, Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels released a song called “Drag Queens” that she believes is “inspiring.” You can be the judge on that one. Her nemesis Candiace Dillard disagrees with Monique’s take, obviously. And, as per usual, Candiace went way too far with her hating.
There’s really no clever introduction for this story. Homophobic tweets have resurfaced from Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard. A majority of the posts she shared are from 2010 and 2011.
The already-controversial reality star has spoken out about the public’s discovery of these tweets.
During last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels had a one-on-one lunch… without arguing. They actually managed to have a good time and they hosted an event for Ashley Darby… which completely went south because of Ashley and Candiace Dillard’s unresolved issues.
It was all good in the scenes with Monique and Gizelle. However, in a confessional, Gizelle shared the rumors that Charrisse Jackson-Jordan had been spreading about Monique. We all expect Gizelle to throw people under the bus, so episode 2 of the season is a good of a time to start as any other. Gizelle said that “the word on the street” is that Monique is having an affair with her trainer. Now, Monique’s actually genuine friend Karen Huger is speaking out. Oh, and I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that Karen and Gizelle have been frenemies for years. So, duh, of course, she has Monique’s back.
