Candiace Dillard just knows how to play the victim always, which is part of what makes her a great Housewife but also oh, so annoying. Am I right?!
The Real Housewives of Potomac star appeared on Sunday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where she insisted she was being “nailed to the cross” for body-shaming co-star Ashley Darby.
If you recall, Candiace recently called Ashley a hoe and slammed her “wide-bodied ass” for stirring the pot and causing drama during the cast trip to Williamsburg.
On WWHL, Andy Cohen noted that many took issue with Candiace body-shaming a new mom.
“We got this a lot for you. Why is it appropriate to body shame women, let alone one that just gave birth?” Andy noted before adding, “Calling a woman that’s breastfeeding and pumping a ‘milkmaid,’ it’s not only an insult to the thousands of women who may have breastfed their babies for centuries. It’s an insult to any woman that struggled to get pregnant [who] longs for a chance to have that experience with their child.”
Candiace replied, “Well, yes, body shaming, as a whole, is not a good thing. It’s unhealthy. Before I say that, I will say this. Yes, what I said, if it offended Ashley, I apologize for it because it was not meant to shame her.”
Andy was flabbergasted and quipped, “You’re doing an ‘If I offended’ apology?”
“Because I don’t know if she was offended. Because she said that it was offensive, I wanted to make it clear that I was not referring to her postpartum body. I talked about her forehead, her face, the whole thing,” Candiace explained.
“But that’s body shaming,” Andy replied, which caused Candiace to go off on a tangent. According to Candiace, if she’s going to be “nailed to the cross” for body-shaming Ashely, then Bravo/fans need to address body shaming across all the Real Housewives franchises.
“If we’re going to pick the pockets of Candiace and my body shaming, we must leave on the table every time anyone on our show in any show has talked about saggy titties has talked about stovepipe legs, has talked about flattering vaginas,” she said. “All body shaming, for whatever reason, Candiace is the only one who gets nailed to the cross; let’s work on that.”
“Oh boy, that’s the apology?” Andy asked to which Candiace replied, “Yes. Well, I apologized to Ashley already. I’m not repeating apologies. One apology, and she got it.”
“You are fascinating,” Andy concluded.
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
