Caught red-handed!

There’s now video evidence of  Michael Darby grabbing a butt that didn’t want to be touched!

The troublesome Real Housewives of Potomac husband has been accused of many things during his tenure on the franchise. Over the years, Michael has been accused of butt grabbing, wanting to suck another househusband’s d–k, and cheating on his wife, Ashley Darby, on more than one occasion.

While we’ve seen photos, overheard hearsay, and been privy to more than a few hot mic moments from Michael, we’ve rarely seen him in the act.

That is until now.

There is a Reddit link currently floating around Twitter. The link leads to a clip that shows Michael in full butt grabbing glory.

The season one, episode nine clip shows Michael going up behind an RHOP crewmember and grabbing his ass. The crewmember is clearly not amused and whips around telling Michael to stop.

Check out the clip below!

As avid Bravo watchers know, in September 2018, RHOP cameraman Orville Palmer claimed 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.

At the season 4 reunion, the Potomac Housewives claimed that Michael had grabbed the butts of many other males, who have worked behind the scenes on RHOP.

The ladies claimed this all went down during season 1 of RHOP in 2016 (HELLO THE ABOVE CLIP IS THE PROOF). This was around the same time Michael was caught on camera grabbing the butt of Katie Rost’s then-fiancé Andrew Martin while on the dance floor.

“Producers have told us you have done that to them,” Gizelle Bryant told Michael. “I was told the same thing,” Robyn Dixon added. “That the same night that Michael grabbed Andrew’s butt, he also went around and grabbed their butts.”

Michael denied the accusations, telling the ladies, “that’s not true.”

Ray Huger then insisted that Michael grabbed Andy Cohen’s butt at one of the past reunions.

“I’ve seen you grab someone’s behind for myself. I saw you in a different situation,” Ray said at the time. “I saw you grab Andy’s butt at the reunion… I saw that. You guys were kidding around. It’s not a big deal.”

At the time, Andy played it off, telling the RHOP cast and husbands: “I don’t remember. I’m sure I was fine with it. The show went well; I love you guys.”

However, Andy was singing a different tune on a later episode of WWHL, saying, “That was me. It was at the end of the reunion a few years before, and I had just totally forgotten, frankly. Someone at Bravo reminded me the next day. I said, ‘Wow, Michael squeezed my butt.’ But he said that that’s a way he’s just friendly with other guys. Have you ever heard of that?!”

At the end of the day, Michael can deny all he wants, but the proof is in the pudding.

RHOP airs on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.

Thoughts on this clip? Why do you think Michael likes to grab butts? Is it all in good fun, or is there something more to it? Sound off below!
