Although the series just began airing new episodes, it didn’t take long for the group of Washington D.C., suburbanites to begin feuding. This season, Candiace Dillard‘s husband, Chris Bassett, has become a topic of conversation for her costars. Thornton didn’t hesitate to sympathize with the Howard alum’s emotional reaction to the various accusations made against him for his behavior.
“I have respect for her at that moment. If we don’t protect our husbands and our children and our lives, then who will?” she questions.
While Dillard’s fourth wall moment aired on screens, Thornton was left just as surprised as fans. “I was shocked to see that because she is so good with her words, but she was thrown off, she couldn’t have the opportunity to read Gizelle up and down.”
