Candiace Dillard Weighs In On Drama Surrounding Brandi Redmond’s Controversial Video Of Her Mocking Asians!

Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard Bassett is sharing her thoughts on the drama surrounding Real Housewives of Dallas star Brandi Redmond’s controversial video of her mocking Asians.

“Also. Sigh. Y’all need a lesson in prejudice vs. discrimination. Making fun of a minority group’s accent, mannerism or other characteristic of their culture does not automatically translate to racism,” she tweeted.


She added: “Preconceived opinions that r rooted in little to no facts is PREJUDICE. Mmmkay?”


After a fan tweeted back and said that “well either way” Brandi's actions were “wrong,” and Candiace simply replied back, “Yes.”

Redmond originally posted the video to her Instagram Story in 2017. Steve Kemble, who is LeeAnne Locken’s wedding planner, shared the clip via Twitter on January 1. “Take A Seat #BrandiRedmond Remember this!? I Do! with your kids in the video,” he wrote. “If @BravoTV @Andy @BravoWWHL #stephaniehollman #karybrittingham & #dandrasimmons want to call @LeeAnneLocken ‘racist’ then either apologize to LL or LABEL BRANDI REDMOND RACIST too!”

In the clip, Redmond said with an accent: “They ask me what Asian I am because my eyes, they squinty.”

Redmond issued a public apology on Twitter three days later. “A video resurfaced of me from three years ago which at the time I had posted and quickly deleted and then immediately apologized for my insensitivity,” she tweeted. “I would like to once again sincerely apologize for my offensive actions.”

It was confirmed last week that Redmond checked into a wellness center after apologizing for insensitive video. Redmond checked herself into a wellness center, to “reflect and better herself,” according to PEOPLE.

A rep for Weekly Dose of B.S. — the podcast Brandi co-hosts along with Stephanie Hollman — made the announcement on Instagram after Redmond skipped the recording of the show’s latest episode.

“She will be back with us next week,” the rep wrote. “We support her on this journey of healing and ask that join us in that.”
