Was Ashley Darby Fired From the Real Housewives of Potomac? She Responds to the Claim

Rumors have begun swirling claiming Ashley Darby was fired from her role on The Real Housewives of Potomac, but are those reports true?

After the cast questioned Ashley’s husband Michael Darby about the allegations against him during the season four reunion, a report was shared online in regard to Bravo TV’s alleged decision. A short time later, after the rumors gained steam on social media, Ashley responded.

According to the online rumor, Ashley and Michael, who welcomed their first child together in July, were not asked to return to RHOP for the series’ fifth season. This was mainly due to the fact that Michael was accused of groping a Bravo cameraman during filming on season four last year.

The report also claimed that filming has already begun and added that Ashley was the only season four cast member whose contract was not renewed for the new episodes.

Following the sharing of the report, a number of fans weighed in on Twitter.


Although the allegations brought against Michael during filming were quite controversial, the charges were ultimately dropped, and when it comes to his and Ashley’s future on RHOP, there doesn’t seem to be any real reason to think they’ve been fired. In fact, Ashley seemingly confirmed that she and her husband will be returning to the show after seeing that an Instagram account denied her rumored firing.

“That is a LIE! Ashley is FILMING right now and still has her flute in hand. Nice try,” wrote The Black Socialites.

“You’re a real one,” Ashley replied.

Ashley’s co-star, Candiace Dillard-Basset also seemingly denied the rumor.

“Don’t believe everything you read, folks. Lol,” she tweeted.

The Real Housewives of Potomac season four reunion part two airs this Sunday, September 22 at 8 p.m. on Bravo TV.
