'RHOP': Mia gets into food fight after Candiace calls her mom 'broke b***h'
The taboo word for Season 6 of 'Real Housewives of Potomac' is 'low budget'. Candiace Dillard Bassett was beyond triggered when new housewife Mia Thornton referred to her music video shoot in the parking lot as 'low budget' butter knife and hands at her co-stars, but in Season 6 she has resorted to body-shaming and throwing food.
Mia became a victim of Candiace's temper tantrum during the cast members' vacation to the Chesapeake Bay. From the moment she set foot in the house, Candiace kept taking digs at Mia, but the new housewife decided not to react to them. She even went to the extent of suggesting that Mia go for therapy and seek help as she doesn't know how to interact with other people who weren't on her level. Mia shrugged off Candiace's suggestion and chose to take the high road by not reacting to it. This further triggered Candiace. Things reached a boiling point when Askale Davis pulled Mia aside to ask how she was feeling, the new housewife admitted that Candiace was being mean and nasty to her. Candiace happened to be within earshot range of their conversation and overheard them. She called out Mia for talking about her behind her back. Things escalated pretty quickly as out of the blue Candiace began referring to Mia's husband Gordon Thornton as her pimp and urged him to keep his 'h**' in line.
Mia took Candiace's insults in her stride and began joking with her husband. As they were leaving, Candiace picked a lettuce leaf and threw it at Mia saying if she was hungry or thirsty she should have the lettuce. Mia once again dismissed it as childish behavior. But Candiace finally managed to push Mia's buttons when she declared that Mia was the one who started the fight so she should also finish it. She then went on to call Mia's mother 'low budget' and 'broke b***h'. A very annoyed Mia grabbed a handful of lettuce leaves from the salad bowl and threw it at Candiace and walked away angrily.
This isn't the first time that Candiace dragged Mia's mother into their fight. Although Mia's mother has nothing to do with their fight, Candiace kept pulling her into their issues by constantly referring to her as 'low budget'. Candiace also kept insulting Mia's physical appearance by mocking her big feet and the many surgeries that she got done to enhance her appearance. Fans have called out Candiace in the past for body-shaming her co-stars, but looks like the 'RHOP' star isn't bothered by it as she continues to mock her co-stars for their physical appearance.
Aside from Mia, Candiace also has her eyes on Ashley Darby. The upcoming episode will feature Candiace and Ashley getting into an explosive fight where Ashley confronts Candiace for calling her husband Michael Darby a 'slave driver' and questioning her intentions behind using such language. We can't wait to see how Candiace gets out of that.
'Real Housewives of Potomac' Season 6 airs every Sunday at 8/7c on Bravo.
