‘RHOP’: Wendy Osefo on Why She Considers Ashley Darby a ‘Snake’ for Writing Statement Against Candiace Dillard
Wanting to prevent Monique Samuels from going to jail and get revenge on Candiace Dillard, Ashley Darby wrote a statement against Dillard in the assault case. Darby revealed she wrote the letter during a cast trip to Portugal in front of the other housewives, a confession that didn’t go over well with the ladies, namely Wendy Osefo. The newest housewife called the move “snake s**t” and felt like Darby, who didn’t see the fight, shouldn’t have gotten involved. Osefo explained why she referred to Darby as a snake in the Bravo After Show.
Wendy Osefo seemingly sided with Candiace Dillard after physical fight
During season 5 of RHOP, Monique Samuels put her hands on Candiace Dillard following a heated argument, shocking the other housewives.
Samuels attempted to explain herself, but Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Wendy Osefo felt like her actions contributed to a negative stereotype about Black women.
Samuels admitted she didn’t have any remorse at the time, and the ladies claimed they didn’t want to be around her until she sought help. Therefore, they held events and chose not to invite Samuels out of respect for Dillard.
During Osefo’s women empowerment function, Karen Huger attempted to explain her “neutral” position to Dillard. The newest housewife interrupted the conversation and backed Dillard by demanding Huger hold Samuels accountable.
Osefo called Darby a ‘snake’ for writing statement against Dillard
Osefo came to Dillard’s defense again a few weeks later during their cast trip to Portugal. Darby admitted she wrote a statement against Dillard in front of the group.
While she didn’t see the fight, Darby explained she told the courts about the infamous butter knife incident and Dillard’s hurtful tweets. Osefo called Darby out for trying to “assassinate” Dillard’s character and explained Samuels wants the statement to “weaken” the case against her.
Additionally, Bryant and Dixon noted that the 32-year-old admitted to writing the letter to “get back” at Dillard because she felt hurt by the former Miss United States’ words and Twitter antics.
Therefore, Osefo called Darby’s move “snake s**t” because of how she operated when she saw a way to get revenge on Dillard.
Osefo explains why she thinks Darby is a ‘snake’
In the Bravo After Show, the newest housewife further explained why she compared Darby to a “snake.” According to the political commentator, she felt Darby shouldn’t have pretended to work on their friendship and owed her a courtesy call instead of surprising her with the news in front of the group.
She likened the situation to when Dillard privately approached Darby about her husband allegedly cheating earlier in the season at Samuels’ vacation house. Osefo claimed that Dillard pulled her aside, but Darby acted like a snake when presented with the same opportunity.
Darby responded to Osefo’s comment during the After Show and claimed she only retaliated because Dillard “poked” her first. She also claimed she didn’t care what the newest housewife thought about her.
On the other hand, Huger called the 32-year-old “brave” for telling Dillard in front of the entire group because “it was going to come out” regardless. The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 9/8 on Bravo.
