Candiace Dillard Bassett is not happy with Potomac’s self-proclaimed Grand Dame, Karen Huger. The two have shared a close relationship since Dillard Bassett joined the cast in season 3. As the eldest of the cast, Huger has been a mother figure to Dillard Bassett, as Dillard Bassett has her own issues connecting with her mother on an emotional level.
But Dillard Bassett may be looking at Huger as the enemy now. In the aftermath of Dillard Bassett and Monique Samuels’ fight, Dillard Bassett says she needs all the support from her co-stars that she can get. Huger however is taking a neutral approach and it’s not sitting well with Dillard Bassett.
Despite Huger letting it slip to Dillard Bassett that if she were in her position, she’d press charges against Samuels, Huger refuses to dismiss her friendship with Samuels. She has made it clear to the group and to Samuels that she does not agree with Samuels’ actions, but that’s not enough for Dillard Bassett.
In a preview clip for an upcoming episode, Dillard Bassett confronts Huger about her not feeling fully supported by her and things appear to go left pretty quickly.
“I’m a little upset that you continuously say I should be against Monique,” Huger tells Dillard Basset in the teaser.
“I need to hear from you that you understand what Monique did was wrong,” Dillard Bassett responds.
“You want me to choose a side and to totally abandon Monique, and I’m not going to do that for you,” Huger snaps back.
Wendy Osefo then interjects and tells Huger that she needs to hold Samuels accountable for her role in the fight. Other co-stars, with the exception of Ashley Darby, all share Osefo’s sentiments.
Additional previews for later in the season show that things grow progressively worse between Dillard Bassett and Huger. There are rumors that Dillard Bassett threatens to hit Huger during a verbal spat that will air during the season finale.
RHOP airs Sundays on Bravo at 9 pm EST.
