Candiace Dillard Bassett Posts a Sweet Tribute to Her "Favorite Husband" Chris as She Releases Her Album
The RHOP cast member is ready for her next chapter, and she's feeling the love from her husband and fellow Bravolebs.
To mark the album's release, The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member opened up about how she's feeling about it all and also thanked the people who helped her get there — including her husband and manager, Chris Bassett.
"As we finally gear up for the release of Deep Space I am reminded of how loved I am and how special this project is to me. Earlier this summer, I invited a small group of friends, family and industry hitters to a listening party for the album. It was intimate and surreal. I was unveiling nearly three years of work from my gut to other humans for the first time…and THAT is wild. The response was overwhelming. The love, support and encouragement I received from my guests has kept me lifted," she wrote on Instagram, along with some memories from that event.
Candiace also made sure to shout out her life partner: "Thank you to my favorite husband, [Chris] for loving me and lifting me."
Chris reminded fans to go out and buy the album on Instagram. "Deep Space coming to you FINALLY at midnight tonight," he wrote on Thursday (September 23). "Make sure you preorder/download/stream from wherever you get yourself music. #isitenough you ask? DAMN RIGHT it’s MORE than enough!! @candeegal09 is really about to #WIN!"
Candiace recently opened up on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen about the experience of working with Chris in a business capacity. So, does she have any regrets about it? "No, it was a learning experience. We've grown from it," she said. "We've gotten closer because of it."
This week, in Candiace's post about her album, the thank you's didn't stop with Chris. She also added a thank you "to my label @eonenashville for going above and beyond for me always: to the incredible members of the DC Chapter of the Recording Academy, thank you for your presence and support; to my host venue @kingsransom.alx thank you for your wonderful hospitality (and BOMB food and custom cocktails!!) and for keeping my guests happy and fed! We will be back soon!

And to my haters and more importantly, my amazing supporters, thank you for streaming, downloading, watching and commenting. Thank you for screaming at me every day asking where the album is."
She concluded Thursday's post with, "You don’t have to wait much longer now! 9.24 is around the corner! You make this journey sweeter. To God be the Glory. I am unendingly grateful. Thank you. DEEP SPACE drops at midnight!!! So ready for you all to hear it."
RHOP fans got to go inside the making of her video for her single "Drive Back" this season on the show (more on that in the The Real Housewives of Potomac After Show, above). Candiace's RHOP pals, including Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Askale Davis also showed Candiace some love in the comments. Other Bravolebs like The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey also posted their support on Instagram Stories.
