The Real Housewives of Potomac has had a season that has left fans of the show awestruck, so it is only right that the reunion would do the same.
Entertainment Tonight caught up with Candiace Dillard Bassett at the release party for Dave Quinn’s new Housewives tell-all book, Not All Diamonds and Rosé: The Inside Story of The Real Housewives from the People Who Lived It.
Dillard shared details about what it was like to have Nicki Minaj co-host the reunion.
Rumor had it that Dillard faced the most heat, but she says the leader of the Barbz read the entire cast “for filth.”
“Let me clear this up. The Queen did show up, she looked amazing. She went in on me, but she went in on everybody,” she said. “She held back not at all. No holds barred. Gave us the business. Read us all for filth. And I would do it again.”
“The whole time I was like, ‘Are we really here. Is this really happening? WTF’ the entire time. I could have sat there for hours,” she continued.
Astonished by Minaj’s earlier seasons references, Dillard added, “She watches our show. She’s so into our show. She was going back to season one, quoting things that regular fans would not quote. She was amazing. So, she can read me all day.”
Dillard also dished that she left the reunion with “more understanding."
“I feel like I walked away with more understanding,” she explained. “I felt like, you know, I’ve had my moments with certain girlfriends for my entirety on the show. And I thought, is it time to retire some things? Maybe, but maybe not. ‘Cause I hold grudges, so it’s hard for me to let things go.”
As far as refreshing the cast and letting some of her current co-stars go, Dillard stated, I’m not advocating for the firing of any of the saints, although some could go,” she admitted. “But you didn’t hear that from me.”
Dillard also said that while Minaj read them all, someone got the most heat.
I would tell you who was completely obliterated but I want to keep my job.
