RHOP Reunion Sneak Peek: Michael Darby Defends Himself Against Sexual Assault Claim

Word on the street is that the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is going to be full of drama!

In a sneak peek of the three-part RHOP reunion, Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, Monique Samuels, and Candiace Dillard Bassett start grilling co-star Ashley Darby‘s husband Michael Darby about the sexual assault allegations that were brought up against him, by an RHOP crew member, during this season.

Back in September 2018, RHOP cameraman Orville Palmer claimed, in court documents, that Michael “grabbed and groped” his backside during filming. However the following month the Montgomery County court dropped the felony assault charge and the misdemeanor improper sexual contact charge due to insufficient evidence.

Michael denied doing anything inappropriate and told Fox 5 D.C. he simply “bumped into the cameraman.”

During the reunion, the RHOP cast questions Michael over his version of events and admit that they believe he did inappropriately touch Palmer.

“I believed it happened,” Robyn tells reunion host Andy Cohen.

“You asked me straight up, ‘Do you think it happened?’ And I said, ‘Uh, yeah!’” Gizelle says. “Michael Darby squeezing ass!”

Housewives husband Ray Huger and Chris Bassett also chime in on the topic.

“I do believe you did it,” Ray tells Michael. “I saw you.”

“Usually when you bump into someone you say, “Excuse me, I’m sorry,’” Chris says.

However, Michael continues to maintain his innocence.

“You don’t know what you’re talking about, as usual,” Michael says. As for his wife, Ashley she remains as loyal as ever, fighting back against her co-stars for “so much trash about my husband.”

“There are a lot of things that you don’t know,” she insists.

The Real Housewives of Potomac season 4 reunion begins Sept. 15 (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
