Michael Darby - Real Housewives of Potomac

The Real Housewives of Potomac stars Ashley and Michael Darby speak out after Michael was cleared of sexual assault allegations after being accused by a cameraman from the show.

“I didn’t do it,” Michael told FOX 5 D.C. in an interview alongside his wife on October 10. “My name is cleared. I didn’t do anything. I’m completely exonerated, completely cleared.” He also alleged that the cameraman, Orville Palmer, was just trying to make money.

According to court documents, the second-degree assault and fourth-degree sexual contact charges will not be pursued.

As fans know, Bravo suspended Michael from filming after the charges were filed. Palmer claimed his butt was grabbed and groped by Michael on September 1st while shooting an episode.

“As I turned around he smiled and gave me a flirtatious look,” the cameraman said in court documents.

Ashley Darby claims the incident made her reconsider appearing on the Bravo reality series.

“This definitely crossed a line,” she said. “It didn’t jade me, but it certainly made me think twice about whether or not we made the right decision to do the show. But in the long run, I’m not going to let someone ruin Michael and I because they made some false allegation. No one is going to ruin our lives. That just won’t happen.”
