'Real Housewives of Potomac' Won't Shy Away From Michael Darby's Sexual Assault Scandal


The fourth season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Potomac begins airing on May 5, and fans are wondering how the show is going to handle the sexual assault charges that were filed against cast member Ashley Darby’s husband, Michael, last September.

Though the charges were dropped a month later, a trailer for the upcoming season confirms that the scandal will serve as a major plot point. Scroll down for details about the allegations and Ashley’s response to the shocking news.

A cameraman accused Michael Darby of sexual assault.

During filming for Season 4, a crew member claimed the Australian millionaire, who made his money in real estate, groped and grabbed his butt. "As I turned around he smiled and gave me a flirtatious look," the cameraman stated in court documents filed on Sept. 4, 2018.
