Candiace Dillard Bassett Husband
In 2018, Candiace got married to Chris Bassett, a restaurant owner and chef. She dished to People about her wedding days later, sweetly recalling:
“When they opened the doors, I only saw him. I was connected to Chris’ eyes. And he was crying, so I was weeping. There’s an ugly cry moment where I had to stop and scrunch up my face. To be walking towards the man who is going to be your husband? That was such a powerful and incredible feeling.”
Candiace Dillard Bassett and Monique Samuels Drama
Fans of RHOP might already be very familiar with the feud Candiace had with co-star Monique Samuels, but if you’re a bit behind, we’ll catch you up. In 2019, both ladies were being charged with second-degree assault after they made formal complaints against one another. Fortunately for both parties, the charges were eventually dropped.
The drama all stemmed from a physical altercation on October 16, 2019, which led to police being called. The incident took place while they were filming for season 5 at a vineyard, so we should expect to learn more about what exactly went down when the season premieres.
The Real Housewives of Potomac season 5 starts on Sunday, August 2 at 9 PM.
