Candiace Dillard-Bassett appeared on Sunday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, where she teased viewers about the upcoming Real Housewives of Potomac reunion and discussed the latest happenings of season seven.

Before addressing Robyn Dixon‘s recent marriage to Juan Dixon, Karen Huger‘s “tea,” and more, Candiace revealed what fans can expect from the reunion and confirmed which of her castmates found themselves in the hot seat the most during the taping.

“I think you’ll be pleased. You’ll be surprised and pleased,” Candiace teased of the reunion on the January 29 episode of WWHL.

Then, when asked who was in the hot seat the most, Candiace told host Andy Cohen, “Oh my God. [Mia Thornton].”

“And [Gizelle Bryant],” Andy replied.

But Candiace didn’t agree.

“Was she? I’mma go with Mia,” she stated. “We were laughing at Mia, not with but at. It was not good.”

In addition to being on the outs with Mia, Candiace has also remained estranged from Ashley Darby.

“I think after the reunion, I’m just done. No thank you,” she confirmed.

During the latest episode of RHOP, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan made a number of claims against Karen, suggesting she sleeps around and once had a driver due to her license being taken away. And looking back, Candiace admitted her co-star kept the rumors “flowing.”

“It was just so egregious,” she described, “like, the stuff about the bathroom and having sex in the bathroom.”

And after Andy noted that she and her co-stars seemed to be eating up Charrisse’s revelations, Candiace admitted, “We were drunk. Like, we were three sheets.”

When the topic turned to Robyn and Juan’s wedding, Candiace said, “I am happy,” before reacting to a virtual fan who wanted to know if she felt the cast was being hypocritical for thinking the suggestion that Juan could be attracted to Karen was ridiculous, but not that Chris Bassett could be attracted to Gizelle.

“I think that it’s by design that you want to attack Candiace because Candiace is going to give you a reaction, and they maybe don’t expect the same thing from Robyn,” she reasoned.

As for Karen’s tea on Juan, Candiace noted that it was “so much.”

“That was so much and Karen is not one to lie. I’ve never really known her to lie about other people and it just felt like that was a lot of information and it didn’t feel real,” she said. “And I’d seen part of that on blogs so I feel like she pulled it from the blogs and added some salt to it.”

Later, on the WWHL: After Show, Candiace revealed if Ashley’s friend Deborah apologized after an early episode confirmed Chris did not flirt with her as she previously claimed.

“She wouldn’t dare. She would be eaten for breakfast. No. She’s doubling down on it. She said, ‘I will be vindicated.’ Where?” Candiace wondered.

The Real Housewives of Potomac season seven airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
