'Real Housewives of Potomac' star Candiace Dillard Bassett certainly knows how to rub off the fans the wrong way. After triggering fans with her unsavory comments about Mia Thornton's mother, and body shaming Ashley Darby, the housewife is now targeting her husband Chris Bassett and Ashley's husband Michael Darby. The two husbands have a longstanding history of not getting along with each other. The two men almost got into a physical altercation in one of the earlier episodes. 

But since then, Chris is trying to bury all his hatchets and make peace with everybody. He apologized to Ashley and extended his interest in making peace with Michael during the show's Season 6 finale episode. Unfortunately, Michael wasn't open to Chris' advances and continued to make snide comments about the private chef. Michael declared that he didn't want to be around anyone who insulted his wife, and also felt that Chris should have apologized to him when he laid hands on him. While the two men were busy laying out all their cards on the table, Candiace felt really annoyed and called out both the men for displaying their 'White privilege' and walked away.

Michael was once again left feeling irked by Candiace's comment on White privilege. Later, Chris pulled Candiace aside and explained to her how bringing race into the conversation was totally inappropriate and clarified that he was just trying to amend things with Michael. Candiace, however, refused to back down and declared that she wasn't going to bow down to Michael and would always speak her mind.

Just like Michael and Chris, several 'RHOP' fans were not only puzzled by Candiace's random 'White privilege' comment but also felt that she was 'embarrassing herself by throwing around the word without understanding the context. A fan tweeted, "Like where did race come into play when Candiace says THE UTMOST controversial racial comments. #Bravo please put the girl in timeout. We don’t claim her. #RHOP." "Candiace doesn't know what white privilege is. Just embarrassed herself at the table trying to have a moment. #RHOP," wrote a fan. Another fan added, "I’m not understanding the context of the white privilege comment. Did Candiace forget that Chris is white too? His brown d*ck doesn’t change his race. #RHOP."

Another fan expressed, "Race didn’t need to be mentioned in this candiace running her mouth again #RHOP." "What does whites privilege have anything to do with what they were saying??? #RHOP Candiace needs to stop bringing up the race card with Ashley & Michael since she’s a black woman who’s married to a white man herself.," pointed out a fan. Another fan added, "It’s just weird when Candiace calls out white privilege, while her husband benefits from that same privilege… #RHOP."
