What Is Candiace Dillard Bassett’s Real Issue with Ashley Darby? The RHOP Ladies Have Some Theories

And The Real Housewives of Potomac cast members aren't holding back the shade, either.

By Hannah Fusaro

It's no secret Candiace Dillard Bassett and Ashley Darby have had tension this past season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. What is a mystery still, though, is what exactly the beef is over. On The Real Housewives of Potomac After Show, the ladies attempted to answer that question — and the consensus was that it's Candiace who has the problem with Ashley.

"I would say to her, what is your goal from this?" Monique Samuels said of Candiace, speaking of Candiace's doubts about if Ashley was really trying to get pregnant. "Say for instance, Ashley isn't trying to get pregnant. What? How is that going to interrupt your life? OK. What happens when she does end up pregnant? What?"

"I think Candiace wants to be Ashley," Gizelle Bryant stated bluntly. "There's some deep-rooted something there."

Robyn Dixon thinks there is competition over both ladies, who are close in age, being former pageant contestants — and she and Gizelle believe Ashley's title is more legitimate. (Candiace is a former Miss United States, while Ashley won the Miss District of Columbia Pageant in 2011.)

"Candiace's crown doesn't exist; Ashley's is a real one," Gizelle opined. She also had some more shady observations about the ladies' supposed similarities — see what she had to say in the video above. And catch the RHOP Season 4 reunion Part 2 Sunday at 8/7c. Preview, below.
