The drama over at ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’ keeps coming!

Following an explosive back-and-forth this week between Mia Thornton, Gordan Thornton, and Peter Thomas, now some more RHOP drama is brewing.

According to reports, Ashley Darby‘s estranged husband, Michael Darby has filed a lawsuit against co-star, Candiace Dillard-Bassett.

Ashley Darby’s estranged husband filed a defamation lawsuit against Dillard after she claimed he performed oral sex on a man, TMZ reported Thursday, citing court docs.

In a November 2022 episode of the Bravo reality show, Dillard, 36, alleged that Michael, 63, “likes to leave [Ashley] and go to a man named [censored]’s house and suck his d–k.” She also claimed he pays for sex.

In his suit, Michael reportedly said he sent Dillard a cease-and-desist letter earlier this year but she has yet to retract her story.

The real estate executive is seeking $2 million in damages, according to the outlet.

Notably, courts have ruled in the past that describing someone as gay is not defamatory.

Page Six has reached out to Dillard’s rep for comment.

Candiace nor her husband Chris Bassett have responded publicly yet, but stay tuned.
