Candiace Dillard Bassett Unpacks Her Drama with Drew Sidora: “Left a Weird Taste in My Mouth”

RHOP‘s Candiace Dillard Bassett was questioned about her decision not to work with Drew Sidora on Part 2 of the Season 8 reunion.

Candiace Dillard Bassett previously collaborated with The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Drew Sidora, but when an opportunity for the pair to work together again came about on The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 8, Candiace was reluctant at best.

Now, Candiace is sharing more context for her wariness.

What happened between Candiace Dillard Bassett and Drew Sidora?

At the RHOP Season 8 reunion, Candiace was asked by host Andy Cohen why she didn’t want Drew to open for her during a planned performance in Chicago. Replied Candiace, “I do business a certain way, and when I want to do business with someone that a friend knows, I go to the friend first. And that wasn’t done. So, it just kind of left a weird taste in my mouth.”

Candiace’s response prompted Andy to compare her and Drew to none other than Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. “It’s what ‘Bad Blood’ is about,” he said, much to Candiace’s surprise.

Her reply? “Is that what it’s about?!”

How Candiace Dillard Bassett Turned Down the Opportunity to Work with Drew Sidora

As RHOP fans may recall, Episode 2 of Season 8 saw Candiace meet with her manager Nye to discuss her options for her upcoming tour dates. As she prepared to return to Chicago, Nye wondered if Chicago native Drew would be the right “special guest” to bring onto the stage.

Candiace, however, wasn’t interested, and ultimately opted to invite another artist to be her opener. “I don’t feel like I need to do anything more musically with [Drew],” she said. “I sold out Chicago. I’m just saying, I don’t need Drew or anyone of note to bring butts to the seats. Sorry, I’m tired.”

Candiace Dillard Bassett and Drew Sidora’s Previous Collaboration, “Affirmations Pt. II”

Candiace and Drew collaborated on “Affirmations Pt. II,” which was released in May 2023. The RHOP cast member announced news of the team-up on her Instagram at the time by sharing a video with the single’s cover art, which featured headshots of both ladies as a snippet of the song played in the background.

The track was a remixed version of Candiace’s original song “Affirmations,” which is on her Deep Space (Deluxe Edition) album.
