Meet Dorothy Dillard, Candiace Dorothy Dillard’s Therapist Mom
A supportive mother though and though, The Real Housewives of Potomac fans have seen Dorothy push her daughter towards success all the way to the point where she became a signed artist. And this was why Dorothy was always fans’ favorite.
However, some weren’t that appreciative of Dorothy as she often dangled the fact that she owned the townhouse that Candiace and her husband were living in. Also, she kept bringing back the fact that she paid for her daughter’s six-figure wedding with Chris Bassett.
Even at the wedding, Dorothy snapped at Candiace after she invited her half-brother to the ceremony, and viewers didn’t like it. “This situation with your dad, his cheating and his lying, that’s what you’re bringing into the wedding? That is what you’re bringing into? Why are you going and chasing after his illegitimate children who have never been part of your life?”, Dorothy screamed.
But Candiace remained firm and stood up for her brother. She said, “If you want to be mad at my dad, be mad at my dad. But it’s not fair to be angry with someone who had no choice.”
As for Candiace’s half-brother, he assured that what happened at the wedding wouldn’t affect his relationship with Candiace. He had a good time, enjoyed the wedding, and left without any hard feelings for anyone.
But Candiace’s half-brother wasn’t the only one Dorothy disliked. She even despised Candiace’s husband Chris. If you’ve been watching RHOP then it’s no secret how much Dorothy enjoyed bad-mouthing her son-in-law.
Dorothy Dillard Husband
As of 2021, Dorothy Dillard was married to Ronald S Watts. He was a 62-year-old man (birthday: December 28) living in Oxon Hill, Glassmanor then.

But do not confuse him as Candiace’s father Walter.
Previously, Dorothy was married to Walter but they split up before 2000 because of infidelity. According to Candiace, her father “had a tryst” in college, while still in a relationship with Dorothy. And the “tryst” resulted in the birth of a baby boy, aka her half-brother, Michael
Dorothy absolutely hated her ex-husband and Michael. “I think that when she thinks about him, he reminds her of her pain,” Candiace shared.
As for Dorothy’s kids, she has three — Candiace, Crystal, and a son (anonymous).
While we know enough about Candiace, Dorothy’s other daughter Crystal is also a star of her own world. She was a blogger living in Los Angeles, CA, who has been confessedly mentioned by “BET, Yahoo News and more.”
Crystal graduated from Howard University in May 2018.
Besides her children and husband, Dorothy’s family included her mother Ernestine, sister Sandra and Jackie, and brother Leonard, and Terry.
Also, she has a cute little cousin named Anita.
