Candiace Dillard Bassett Teases the RHOP Season 8 Reunion

In the years since Candiace joined the RHOP crew, she formed a strong friendship with Robyn. However, their friendship hit a serious bump on Season 7, and the two haven't managed to make amends on Season 8. 

Though Candiace and Robyn haven't seen eye-to-eye on Season 8, the singer does have "hope" that they'll be able to get on the same page during the reunion.

"I always say there's hope, even if I don't see the hope in the horizon, there's always hope," she said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "So, I'm hoping that — the reunion is taping very soon, that we can get to the reunion, get on the couch in our super-tight, breathe-less dresses, and figure it out."

Candiace isn't, however, sure how they'll get back on track in their friendship.

"I don't know what that looks like, but we gotta figure it out," she continued. "The couch is the hash-out spot, and I'm ready to hash it out."

"You will see at the reunion that there is much more to the situation. There's more," she said on WWHL about whether she feels responsible for their discord. "There are more things that transpired, so, while I made a mistake, I'm not gonna take full responsibility for where the relationship is. And I have tried numerous times. I have I have. and I'm gonna keep trying."
