While Gizelle wasn’t exactly fond of “cheerleader” Candiace last season, the OG and the newest ‘Wife have found common ground this year and are slowly building a friendship. During the last episode, the two met for a lunch. Candiace spilled the tea on Monique Samuels referring to Katie Rost as “Amistad” on the New Orleans trip. She also doubled down on her very strong opinions about Ashley Darby‘s questionable attempts at getting pregnant.
Confiding in Gizelle Bryant always seems to backfire for the ladies of the Real Housewives of Potomac. Unless you are Robyn Dixon that is. Trouble is brewing as Candiace Dillard offered up some information concerning Monique Samuels and her comments about Katie Rost.
Katie returned to the group this season and was welcomed back with a lot of enthusiasm. There were comments made about how Katie changed her look since she was last on the show. Monique was one of those people, only she had the misfortune to share her thoughts with Candiace. Candiace then shared Monique’s words with Gizelle. It seemed to be an attempt by Candiace to ingratiate herself to Gizelle but she threw Monique under the bus in the process.
Love or hate her, you do have to admit that Ashley Darby went through a very difficult time last year. Not only did she have a miscarriage but her husband was accused of sexual assault and wanting to “suck a dick”. Now add Candiace Dillard’s constant questioning and judging… you have to feel for Ashley.
Ashley has shared her journey, which includes not drinking alcohol hoping that would help her become pregnant. However, the girl wants to have fun
and needs to drink around these women so she has been downing the liquor. Some see a problem with this and the leader of the pack is Mrs. Brown Dick Candiace. Candiace believes Ashley drinking + Michael Darby wanting to suck a dick = Ashley not really wanting to have a baby. Now only if Candiace could calculate how to leave her mother’s clutches house!
Candiace Dillard is grasping for a storyline on the Real Housewives of Potomac. When she was first introduced on Season 3, it was all about navigating through the group and making friendships. Then Candiace went into Bridezilla mode battling it out with her mother. Now that she is happily married to Chris Bassett, it seems Candiace is fixated on Ashley Darby’s journey to motherhood.
Candiace questions Ashley’s intentions at every opportunity. Gizelle Bryant finally called her out on it and revealed to Ashley what was being said. Strangely enough, Candiace never questioned Gizelle’s intentions behind that ill-timed public announcement. Even more confusing is why Candiace continues to confide in Gizelle.
Season 4 of Real Housewives of Potomac has proven to be just the right amount of tender sentiment and festering, unresolved drama. Some things remain the same. Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant keep taking digs at each other, Candiace Dillard tries to stand up to her mother, and Robyn Dixon fades into the background. There have also been poignant moments concerning miscarriages and baby planning.
But there has been some conflict building up that, according to the trailer, will spill over in a big way. Michael Darby got off way too easy from his suggestive comments at Candiace’s wedding. Surely this crowd wouldn’t let drama like that go to waste. Those comments, coupled with the public news about Michael’s alleged assault, will make the rest of the season very difficult for him and wife, Ashley Darby.
Candiace Dillard continues to tread into the waters of conflict. None of her Real Housewives of Potomac castmates back up her persistent questioning of Ashley Darby’s intentions concerning motherhood. So far, Candiace hasn’t justified her position enough and the other ladies are speculating that she is simply projecting issues with her mother onto Ashley.
As if the Candiace and Ashley conflict wasn’t enough, Karen Huger is crossing boundaries with Gizelle Bryant. She has been bringing up Gizelle’s ex Sherman Douglas. If the two were truly friends, perhaps it wouldn’t feel like an attack on Gizelle’s privacy. But clearly, Karen has an ulterior motive.
The drama on The Real Housewives of Potomac was at an all time high on last week’s episode. Karen Huger declined to go out with the ladies, leaving everyone confused. She chose to go “live” on Instagram rather than spend time with the other women. Grief makes you do crazy things I suppose!
In addition to the Karen drama, Ashley Darby confronted Candiace Dillard regarding comments about her fertility journey. Despite Ashley saying she was staying sober to get pregnant, she’d been drinking quite a lot in New Orleans. This did NOT sit well with Candiace. Tonight is sure to pick up where we left off with Ashley and Candiace at each other’s throats.
The Real Housewives of Potomac cast trip in New Orleans continues during tonight’s episode. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Real Housewives trip without some drama. All of these NOLA episodes have revolved around two fights: Karen Huger vs. Gizelle Bryant and Ashley Darby vs. Candiace Dillard. In contrast, Robyn Dixon, Katie Rost, and a pregnant Monique Samuels are just along as spectators.
And, yes, those same arguments continue on tonight’s new Real Housewives of Potomac episode.
