Candiace Dillard Bassett and Gizelle Bryant, who co-star together, have a strained relationship after Gizelle, 52, accuses Candiace’s husband Chris Bassett of inappropriate behavior in season 7. On HollywoodLife’s Pay Attention Puh-Lease!, Candiace, 35, said, “I can tell you that desperation is at an all time high.” when we inquired about her conflict with Gizelle on the podcast.
When Candiace clarified that the Chris cheating rumors, which are allegedly being spread by Gizelle on the upcoming season, are untrue, she added insult to injury for her former friend.
It could easily turn into a routine, dull game. It’s comparable to Gizelle’s sex life in its banality, Candiace told us EXCLUSIVELY. “Like we already know it’s going to happen. She must choose a new husband every season, and fortunately for her, we frequently bring in new husbands, giving her plenty of fresh options.
Gizelle’s actions, according to Candiace, surprised her and Chris because they considered the Reasonably Shady podcast host to be friends. “She has visited our home and been near our kids. I spent time in her house with her kids,” Candiace said. Her daughter operated my vehicle. I took the girls there. I’ve always welcomed her kids. I had the wrong idea. I’ll simply state that. I was mistaken about her.

The fact that Gizelle and Candiace sided against Monique Samuels in season 5 surprised viewers as well. Candiace, however, doesn’t think Gizelle had her back at that time for the right reasons.
The “Drive Back” singer said, “I think it’s important to understand the difference between friendship and convenience. “Yes, Gizelle was’supportive’ of me at the time, but you know, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, and Gizelle’s support for me at the time was practical. That never escaped my notice.
Because I was attempting to survive at the time, Candiace continued, “I didn’t need to say it.” But I never forgot that Gizelle, in particular, had a mission, and if she needed to use me to get there, so be it.
As we previously mentioned, Gizelle claimed to HollywoodLife that Candiace’s alleged statement that she didn’t value or require Gizelle’s support during her fallout with Monique led her to “reevaluate” her friendship with Candiace. Gizelle and Candiace got into a Twitter argument over that. In Potomac, the drama never stops.
