Candiace Dillard Bassett Discussed Her Album in September 2021

While speaking to 1075 WGCI in September 2021, Bassett discussed how she feels about the success of Deep Space. 

“It’s the most overwhelming feeling ever. I can’t even really describe it to you. I was actually just in my closet crying. I just had a mini breakdown, like a happy breakdown,” said the Bravo star. 

She shared that she celebrated the album’s release with a party. 

“The album came out [on September 24], we went right into the album release party on Saturday and I performed and I had, you know, my family and my friends there. I had the background dancers, I had a live band, had the whole shebang, so I was like focused on that and the weekend was just a blur. My family was town they were staying at the house, we were eating and cooking and sitting on the floor, rolling around, playing, and so I haven’t really had a chance to like soak it all in,” explained the “Real Housewives of Potomac” cast member.
