Candiace Dillard and Noella Bergener Sound Off on Jennie Nguyen’s Offensive Facebook Posts

Voicing their opinions!

The Braoverse is buzzing over Bravo’s decision to fire Jennie Nguyen from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City over her offensive 2020 Facebook posts that came to light last week.

So, it’s not surprising that several Real Housewives are speaking out about Jennie’s scandal.

Candiace Dillard from the Real Housewives of Potomac spoke out on Twitter, and surprisingly her comments were direct,  mature, and thoughtful.

“I know what it feels like to have to look at one’s self in the mirror and grapple with hurtful things I have said. What I also know is that everyone deserves a chance to learn and grow. Jennie must be willing to first acknowledge that there is a bias and do the work – whether organically or intentionally – of unlearning. This is not something she can do in the public eye, and the BIPOC, her bigoted views target, will not let her,” Candiace shared.

“Willing or not, reflection needs to be done away from this platform. We do not deserve to be triggered by the presence of someone who justified unlawful killings of Black people just over one year ago in our spaces,” she continued.

Meanwhile, Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Noella Bergener says there’s “no excuse” for Jennie’s Facebook posts.

“The worst part is, I really did love Jennie, and then I read [her posts], and it’s like, ‘Whoa.’ No excuse, just no excuse,” Noella told Page Six. “It’s a shame because I found her very interesting.”

“It’s a weird time. I’m not a big believer in cancel culture,” she continued. “But it was really bad, and I agree with Bravo’s decision.”

As for Jennie’s claims that she’s not a racist, Noella admits she’s not convinced but says she’d love to meet up with her and dissect her problematic Facebook posts.

“I felt like I kind of need to go up and talk to her,” she explained. “I want her to say to herself, ‘OK, let’s unpack this. Let’s unpack this. Do you really think this way?'”

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
