The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion on September 29 featured some groundbreaking allegations against Ashley Darby’s husband, Michael. During the episode, the other cast members and their husbands brought forward more claims that they had seen Michael, 60, groping men’s butts. And this time, they even accused Michael of squeezing Andy Cohen’s backside.

Michael was previously accused of misconduct by a RHOP cameraman who alleged that the Australian businessman grabbed and groped him during filming. The case was eventually dismissed due to lack of evidence. 

During Sunday’s reunion, Karen Huger’s husband, Ray, wasn’t ready to let it go. He said to Michael, “I’ve seen you grab someone’s behind, for myself. I saw you in a different situation. I saw you grab Andy’s butt at the reunion. … I saw that. You guys were kidding around. It’s not a big deal.”

He said that witnessing Michael grope Andy, 51, made him believe the cameraman when those accusations came to light.
