‘RHOP’ Star Ashley Darby’s Husband Michael Charged With Sexual Harrassment Of A Cameraman
Lordt. Karen Huger‘s gonna have a field day with this one…
News just dropped that "Real Housewives of Potomac" star Ashley Darby‘s husband Michael has been criminally charged with sexual harassment. Reportedly a Bravo cameraman has spoken up about Michael allegedly grabbing his butt – then smiling flirtatiously – during filming earlier this month.
The cameraman — Orville Palmer — claims after the grope he turned around and Darby gave him "a flirtatious look." Orville says he instructed Darby to stop, and then told his supervisor.
Darby has been charged with felony assault as well as misdemeanor improper sexual contact.
The incident reportedly happened on September 1st. Michael’s facing 11 years in prison. Interestingly, anther incident was mentioned in the recent season involving Michael allegedly sending nudes to a mystery person. The pics were all over the net, and Ashley still played down the fiasco when it was brought up. Accusations of Michael allegedly having a gay lover have been circulating since 2016. Both Michael and Ashley have denied the accusations.
Ashley told Bravo back in May about the nude pics in question:
That internet rumor was a fabricated story made up by someone who has never met my husband and chose a random white man to pretend to be Michael. On the other hand, there have been many sightings of Karen doing her thang around Potomac with this fellow. But like I said – if Karen and Ray have an arrangement, more power to them!
Ashley and Michael went through some major marital woes over the last two seasons, but seemed to have worked things out with Ashley moving back into their condo this past season. We still side-eyed the hell out of Michael when he made it known he had no interest in having a baby with his wife, despite the fact they agreed to have kids at the time of their marriage.
We already know co-stars Karen & Ray Huger are sipping their champagne in their Potomac home….or guest house….with a pizza…talking mad ish. The Hugers were beefing hard with the Darbys last season when Michael & Ashley had so much to say about Ray’s tax drama with the IRS.
BONUS: Ashley is really out here trying to establish a singing career:
