<p>In a confessional, Dillard-Bassett tells a producer: “I’m emotional because I’m stressed about being far away from home, with these crazy ladies, and because I’m mad at my man.”</p>

<p>She then tells her co-stars, “Either I’m working, and he’s off, or he’s working, and I’m off. We have not been able to see each other in months. And it affects me a lot.”</p>

<h2>The ‘RHOP’ husband explained why he sold his restaurant during the Season 5 reunion special</h2>

<p>The “Drive Back” singer was referring to a previously co-owned restaurant her husband owned. Chris was part owner of the Arlington, VA barbecue restaurant Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster BBQ. The restaurant was famous for including barbecue recipes from celebrity chef and four-time barbecue World Champion, Myron Mixon.</p>

<p>He revealed during the season 5 reunion that he sold the restaurant. In an exclusive interview with <a href=”https://www.bravotv.com/the-daily-dish/chris-bassett-candiace-dillard-bassett-marriage”>Bravo</a>, Chris revealed he did so to protect his future amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Initially, he was scared to make such a huge move.</p>

<p>“I didn’t know what I was going to do at first, but the catering and the classes really took off, and it’s been great,” he said at the time. He was also happy about being able to have a better work-life balance now that he’s not running a full-time restaurant business. </p>
