It was a tense part three of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion Sunday night, when Ashley Darby’s husband, Michael Darby, was blindsided by more sexual misconduct claims.
About a year ago, Darby was suspended from filming after he was accused by a cameraman of having his butt "grabbed and groped" by Darby. Darby denied that the incident happened, and the claim was subsequently dismissed due to insufficient evidence.
On Sunday, Darby reluctantly agreed to discuss the incident. However, Darby began the conversation aggressively, shaming the Potomac women for the way they reacted to the allegations against him on the show. "That whole thing with you girls, unbelievable,” Darby stated. “It's just embarrassing for you all, I'm telling you. What you all did, you should all be ashamed of yourselves." So it wasn't surprising that the conversation took a turn for the worse as everyone got a little defensive.
Darby continued to deny that he grabbed the cameraman's butt, insisting that he just "bumped into" him. However, some of the housewives, and their husbands, brought up additional claims that they either saw or heard about of Darby also grabbing producers’ butts.
"Producers have told us that you have done that to them," said Gizelle Bryant. Robyn Dixon added, "I mean, I was told the same thing. That same night that Michael grabbed Andrew's butt, he also went around and grabbed their butts."
"That's not true," Darby insisted to Dixon, who responded, "But for us to believe that it's possible, I don't think that's far-fetched."
Eventually, Karen Huger’s husband, Ray Huger, jumped into the conversation, and admitted that he does believe Darby grabbed the cameraman’s butt. And the reason why is because he’s seen Darby grab someone else’s butt — Andy Cohen’s.
"I didn't call you. And you know why? Because I didn't want to get into it, because I did believe you did it," Huger told Darby. "I've seen you grab a behind! I've seen it. For myself. I saw you. In a different situation. Someone else's." And when Darby asked Huger about his "accusation," Huger revealed, "Well I saw you grab Andy's butt."
Cohen had no recollection of Darby grabbing his butt. However, in true Cohen fashion, he didn’t mind one bit. "I'm sure I was fine with it," said Cohen.
