Standing by her man!
Ashley Darby is fully supporting her husband Michael Darby as he faces sexual assault charges for grabbing the buttock of one of the Real Housewives of Potomac‘s crewman.
According to Reality Blurb, Ashley made her support for Michael known in a now-deleted post on Instagram.
In the post, Ashley denied the charges against Micahel, amid rumors he’s has been suspended from filming for season 4 of RHOP.
“No charges filed. No arrests made. No Bravo suspension. No worries. We’ll keep you posted,” Ashley wrote alongside a photo of Michael.

Not surprisingly Ashley quickly deleted the post. Perhaps she realized how foolish the post looked considering charges were filed, Michael was arrested, and Bravo has suspended him from filming.
TMZ was the first to announce that Bravo had suspended Michael from filming season 4.
And late Friday, Bravo and RHOP production company Truly Original both released statements concerning the allegations against Michael.
“Bravo has comprehensive policies and guidelines relating to the safety of cast and crew which production companies are required to follow, in addition to their own protocols they have in place. We take all allegations seriously and then proceed accordingly with our producing partners. Bravo and Truly Original, the production company for ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac,’ have suspended filming with Michael Darby.”
Meanwhile, Michael’s accuser Orville Palmer alleges that this wasn’t the first time Michael had touched him inappropriately. Palmer claims that in a separate incident, Michael kicked him in his buttocks.
Palmer attempted to get a permanent restraining order against Michael but a judge denied the request.
The RHOP cast has yet to comment on the allegations against Michael but I guarantee they will have a lot to say about it during season 4 of RHOP.
