Candiace Dillard Bassett slams Tom Sandoval’s ‘Bombastic Audacity’ after Vanderpump Rules finale

Twitter needs to be lit with #pumprules right now. Phew, Chile (voiced by Cynthia Bailey), EVERYONE’s tweets are red hot. I mean torches Tom Sandoval after last night Vanderpump Rules Final. A notable voice in the crowd is the star of “Real Housewives of Potomac” and the Word-a-Day calendar. Candiace Dillard Bassett.

What is she bringing? She tweeted the event live and brought a lot with her. How about “This whole scene is a lesson in bombastic boldness.” Mic drop. One fan’s response was, “…I’m stealing this.” I’ll be using it during S8 #RHOP. Probably often.”

What else did Candi say?

She applauded: “Ariana [Madix] is better than all of us. I would have burned everything down.” Truth! Candi burns down every time she hears something she doesn’t like. And I can’t imagine her letting Chris Bassett (I’m sorry but Chris loves her – he’s not a maniac) get away with it.

She continued, “If it was a facade, why didn’t you put it up?!? Why did you play in the face of her and all of our faces and have an affair under our noses on Sundays for seven months?!?” Yeah! But wait, do you mean you waited until Sunday to watch the show? You were grinning too hard back then (between your single x Drew, your ShowS, your MBA and your podcast) because VPR airs Wednesday, dear.

“Everything,” she says

Are there other jewels? Why yes. I’m voting @TherealCANDIACE to be the post-reunion guest on WWHL. The girl says, “Yall. Please tell me my eyes and ears are deceiving me. This man has just named his slave chick his main chick’s name and she’s smiling like he just told her he’s about to make her an omelette. What world do we live in? Where are we???? #PumpRules.” There we are. Candiace gets the tone of the Vanderpump reality. It’s more of a “go with the mood you’re in” flow. Let’s make a comparison of realities:

  • Tom’s interpretation of a relationship breakup: reasonably normal after 9 years
  • Tom’s definition of fireworks: Going a bit weird
  • Tom’s definition of breakup: Not spending time together because you don’t like what she likes
  • Tom’s work in therapy: Lying in therapy
  • Tom thinks Ariana doesn’t want to know: Tom’s fault
  • Tom says Ariana should have followed him: Crazy

Candiace says, “Humans are imperfect beings. lol That’s the lesson tonight. #PumpRules.” Cue Tom says in the finale, “It’s not about someone stroking my ego,” but “we gave each other confidence.” Confidence comes from within, Tom; not about Raquel Leviss. He continued, “Over time, we became a mutual support system.” Yes, while also “supporting” Ariana.

As Candiace said, “My sternum is heavy!! #Pumprules.” No, uh, uh. Go back my friend. Drive back to sanity. She sends us: “Well, yes. My god today. That was a lot. Thank you for coming. #Pumprules.” And good night.

Catch Candiace in her cameo on RHOA this Sunday. Watch the three-part Vanderpump Rules reunion on Bravo starting May 24th.
