Candiace Dillard and Ashley Darby’s nasty feud has spilled over to social media and has fans fired up!

The Real Housewives of Potomac star took their beef to an all-time low when she hurled insults at fellow co-star, Ashley Darby, on the same day she gave birth — and fans reacted harshly.

Candiace first crossed the line when she referred to Ashley as “bed wench” on social media. Bed wench is a racist term that refers to a slave woman whose job was to sleep in their slave master’s bed, keeping it ‘warm’ so that when the slave-master was ready to have sex with them, they would be readily available.

“I would LOVE for you to pop me with that forever 21 bag you bought with your concubine allowance so I can bust you upside your raggedy head for provoking me. I HAVE TIME, BED WENCH. #RHOP.” Candiace tweeted on July 7.Candiace Dillard

In a second tweet, Candiace hurled more derogatory insults at Ashley“WHERE IS YOUR INCOME, ROACH??? You laid on your back to get the two dollars you DO get. I BEEN had jobs while you turn tricks to pay YOUR MAMA’s rent. Don’t. Come. For. Me. You won’t win. #RHOP.” the reality diva posted on July 7.

Many fans responded to Candiace’s post with critical remarks.

One fan pointed out that Ashley just had a baby and urged the reality diva to show some decency — but Candiace was smugly dismissive.

Another fan remarked that Ashley is financially secure from her husband (laying on her back) — while Candiace depends on her mother, Dorothy, for monetary support.

How Their Beef Started

Tension between Candiace Dillard and Ashley Darby erupted during a New Orleans cast trip — Candiace accused the new mom of not really wanting to get pregnant because of her hard partying and claimed that Ashley faked her miscarriage. “If Ashley was really serious about having her baby then she would be saying, ‘No, I don’t want anything to drink ‘cause I’m trying to get pregnant,’” Candiace said during a talking head confessional.

Candiace and Her Mother’s Relationship

Candiace Dillard’s mom, Dorothy, seems to control many aspects of life — she pays a large chunk of her daughter’s bills, financed her wedding, and even controlled the guest list. When Candiace told her mother she was inviting her half-brother, Michael to her wedding, Dorothy really let her daughter know how she felt. Then it was revealed in a therapy session that Dorothy hit Candiace upside the head with her purse during a heated argument. Mom has very little respect for her married daughter freeloading off her dime.
