Candiace Dillard Bassett, star of 'Real Housewives of Potomac,' is notorious for speaking harsh words to her co-stars. The Potomac housewife knows exactly what to say to get a pretty strong reaction from her co-stars. Since day one, Candiace and her fellow housewife Ashley Darby struggled to see eye-to-eye on anything. Their brief truce came to an abrupt end when Ashley agreed to write a character statement for Monique Samuels. Ever since then, Candiace never let go of an opportunity to insult or pick on Ashley.

While 'Real Housewives' fans usually enjoy watching the ugly cat-fights and screaming matches amongst the ladies, they, however, were totally put off by Candiace's fight with Ashley. Candiace resorted to body-shaming Ashley. Ashley who just delivered her second baby was labeled "wide-bodied a**" and her forehead too was mocked by Candiace. The housewife took jabs at Ashley both in-person and also during the green room interviews. Candiace received a lot of backlash from the audience for her body-shaming comments.


'RHOP' fans slam Candiace and Michael for body shaming Ashley's post-pregnancy body

Did 'RHOP' star Candiace Bassett call Michael Darby as Ashley's 'slave driver'?

During the reunion when the topic of Candiace's inappropriate comments toward Ashley's body were brought up, the housewife just shrugged it off. Despite Andy Cohen trying to nudge Candiace into apologizing to her co-star for her inappropriate comments, Candiace refused to apologize and felt that she did nothing wrong. She in fact doubled down by declaring that Ashley's forehead was a good 2.5 inches bigger than everybody's.

Candiace also pointed out how body-shaming was pretty common among the group and recounted how Wendy Osefo was body-shamed, Mia Thornton was body-shamed, and even former 'RHOP' star Charisse Jordan was body-shamed. What made the whole thing very ironic was Candiace declared that she was the most self-aware person among the group a few minutes ago, yet couldn't see how her comments were just plain wrong. She also accused Ashley of colorism for mocking her dry hair. 

Ashley handled the whole situation pretty well and predicted that when Candiace has children of her own then she would rethink all the comments she made about her. Fans took to their Twitter to slam Candiace. A fan tweeted, "Just when I thought this b**** @TherealCANDIACE couldn’t go any lower Body shaming, colorism, and slavery…H** you sick #RHOP." another fan wrote, "There is nothing Candice can say to justify her body shaming Ashley’s post pregnancy body or “mom shaming” her for pumping. It will never be ok on any level & Candice not being a mom herself, makes it even worse. #RHOP." "Leave it to Candiace to deflect a question about post-partum body shaming and make it about race. The short nightmare just loves being an epic b**** for tv. I'm over it. If that's your storyline then get a new f***ing job you abhorrent oxygen thief. #bravotv #BRAVO #RHOP #WWHL."

Another fan declared, "Candiace is completely deluded. A hell hound even. #RHOP." "Candice’s lack of accountability for anything in life is truly amazing. This is some madness. #RHOP," echoed a fan. Another fan added, "Candiace really doesn’t take accountability for anything. It’s exhausting #RHOP."
