Candiace Dillard Bassett compared herself to Lala Kent from ‘Vanderpump Rules’
Following the “Scandoval” around season 10 of Vanderpump Rules, Candiace Dillard Bassett shared her thoughts on the mess. When Bravo posted the unique seating chart (or rather, charts) for the reunion on Instagram, she chimed in in the comments. “Okay… I have questions,” she wrote. “Why are there two seating charts? And the people who allegedly cheated are sitting next to each other in front of the woman that was cheated on?! Who is making these decisions? I’m getting heartburn and my edges are falling out just looking at this!”
She took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the drama that has been unfolding on screen, even before the Pump Rules cast members were made aware of Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ affair. “Y’all got me in here catching up on Vanderpump,” she wrote in a tweet, per Heavy, “and Lalaaaaa [laughing emojis]. She is me and I am her. She stays eating these girls up and she means it. I love a spicy queen.”
In another tweet, she praised Ariana Madix and her levelheadedness. “Ariana is a vibe. She’s such a calm and stable force but will give it to you if you earn it,” she wrote. “I enjoy her on this show! It really makes me want to burn everything down for her even more, because who cheats on a bad b****? (a raggedy man, that’s who).”

After news of Scandoval broke, Lala Kent took to her Instagram Stories to share that Madix had given her permission to make Tom Sandoval’s life a living hell.
“Anyone going to Tom Sandoval’s show tonight, here is the drill. I obviously will not be there but I want you all to bust into a chant of, ‘ARIANA! ARIANA!’” she said, according to Us Weekly. “This is so fun, I usually don’t get involved but now I am activated. I am activated as f***. Now that I have consent from Ariana … blowtorch, gasoline, grenade launcher, it’s all ready.”
