THAT MICHAEL DARBY ENDING LAST WEEK THOUGH. I’m still shook from that unseen production footage. The Real Housewives of Potomac are DELIVERING this season in every way possible. So good. The footage they showed was so damaging to his and Ashley Darby’s credibility. I don’t think anyone believes his version of events at this point.
Can we also talk about Michael Darby’s somewhat obsession with Juan Dixon? Robyn Dixon isn’t saying it, but we all know “THE COMMENT” was about Juan. Her silence is speaking volumes. Monique Samuels is still Ashley’s only ally right now, which is straining her friendship with Candiace Dillard. Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant are being messy with this situation, but they have every right to be. Karma anyone?
Real Housewives of Potomac has been dealing with a huge scandal that started behind the scenes and then surged to engulf the entire cast. In September 2018, Ashley Darby’s husband, Michael Darby, was charged with a misdemeanor for improper sexual contact and a felony assault charge. A cameraman, Orville Palmer, alleged that Michael grabbed his butt and even gave him a “flirtatious look.” The supposed assault happened during Monique Samuels’ Rainbow shower. The maximum sentence for the charges was 11 years in prison.
Michael was suspended from filming RHOP while the charges were investigated. A Montgomery County court dismissed the charges due to insufficient evidence on October 4. He resumed filming the reality show in early October.
The Hoedown Showdown is over, but there is plenty of drama ahead for The Real Housewives of Potomac. Michael Darby’s alleged sexual assault has ALL of the ladies talking right now. Ashley Darby is doing damage control, but Candiace Dilliard is calling BS on all of it. These two women are out for blood against each other this season. Their issue fired up so fast for no real reason.
Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger are civil right now but that could explode at any moment. Monique Samuels is STILL pregnant! Have that baby already! Meanwhile, Michael hasn’t been permitted to film with the cast. However, he’s scheduled to return tonight. There’s no telling what sort of drama Ashley’s controversial husband will get into next.
The Michael Darby drama has been building up all season long on Real Housewives of Potomac. It. Has. Been. So. Long. Last week’s episode ended with Candiace Dillard coming at Ashley Darby with a butter knife. However, she did not reveal any actual information.
On tonight’s episode, Gizelle Bryant is up for a bad friend award when she throws Robyn Dixon under the bus. She tells Ashley that Robyn overheard a comment and then threw the conversation to Robyn so she could face Ashley’s wrath. Ummmmm. Seriously, Gizelle? Stirring the pot is one thing, but throwing your green-eyed “best friend” under the bus is another.
The last episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was highly emotional. Ashley Darby gave a tearful speech about her miscarriage, and Karen Huger broke down in a cave. Karen and Ashley are finally on the same page, but who knows how long that will last. Also, Monique Samuels FINALLY got the apology she wanted from her mother-in-law. It’s about time!
The Michael Darby secret is likely coming out tonight, and I’m screaming! Candiace Dillard and Robyn Dixon have kept this mostly under wraps which is shocking. Both typically act like the bone collector so keeping this big of a secret is monumental for them. SHOOK. This dinner is going to go down in Housewives infamy. Let the legendary episode commence!
The Real Housewives of Potomac’s trip to New Orleans was out of this world. The drama between the group was more intense than ever. Candiace Dillard got slammed for speaking about Ashley Darby’s fertility journey. Plus, Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant went at it for the millionth time. However, we are finally heading back to Potomac where things are looking to heat up even more.
Candiace and Robyn Dixon still haven’t exposed the shocking secret about Michael Darby. Once this comes out, so much chaos will erupt. Also, Katie Rost is still in the mix so anything can happen with her around. Besides the drama, Monique Samuels’ rainbow party is rapidly approaching. Hopefully, the women don’t ruin the even with petty fights and gossip.
On last week’s episode, of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Michael Darby found himself in some hot water! He allegedly made sexual comments towards another man, and Robyn Dixon of all people overhead him. It’ll be interesting to see the fallout if Robyn or Candiace Dillard decided to reveal what they heard. This could have massive ramifications on his marriage to Ashley Darby.
Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant also ended up on semi decent terms after last week. Their relationship is always changing so they might be back in bad terms by the end of this episode. Why even are the fighting anymore? At this point it seems like they’re just fighting for the sake of it and for no real reason. It’s so back and forth so hopefully they’ll make further forward progress this week.
Ashley Darby spent a good portion of her Bravo blog this week defending Michael Darby from himself. Michael’s conversation with other men tended to veer toward the subject of their backsides.
On its own, this conversation may be innocent enough, but coupled it with allegations about Michael, and you’ve got a situation ripe for speculation and innuendo. One thing is for sure, opinions about Michael will affect the dynamic between Ashley and the other Real Housewives of Potomac this season.
