Real Housewives of Potomac former star Michael Darby is being accused by Candiace Dillard of stalking, and trying to intimidate her, Media take Out has learned.
An RHOP fan posted a photo of Michael talking to an unidentified woman on Twitter. And the Twitter user alleged that the photo was taken at one of Candiace’s performances and Michael came to confront her. Apparently, the woman in the picture asked Michael to leave the event.
The person tweeted, “I really can’t believe Michael Darby came to @TherealCANDIACE concert just to talk about Ashley and be messy. It’s giving desperate.”
Well yesterday, Candiace went on IG Live to confirm exactly what happened.
According to Candiace, Michael was intimidating and followed Candiace everywhere and at one point, stepped directly in front of her path, and staring intimidatingly at her.
Staff at the resort were on high alert and watched Michael closely. Reportedly some staff and patrons asked him to leave Candiace’s performance – as the tweeter suggested.
But Michael stayed put and during Candiace’s performance, he made sure to sit directly in front of the stage where he could not be missed and glared at her all night.
Candiace said she remained unperturbed and would’ve still performed even if the devil was present.
“Real Housewives of Potomac” stars Candiace Dillard Bassett and Ashley Darby have feuded for years, on the hit Bravo reality series. At times, their issues have even spilled over onto social media.
However, a glimmer of hope of peace between them occurred during last season’s reunion, after Media Take Out reported that Nicki Minaj called Ashley out during her hosting segment. She accused Ashley of “intentionally” coming to the cast trip with the plan of causing drama with Wendy Osefo.
Gizelle figured Ashley would be the right person to talk to Wendy about these things because Michael Darby’s time on RHOP has resulted in a string of controversies.
Despite her past issues with Ashley, Candiace still attempted to defend her to Nicki. And she told Nicki that Ashley still had to show up to do her job despite just giving birth to her second child. Ashley appreciated this. And she hopped on social media to show love to Candiace.
Ashley filed to divorce Michael earlier this year, after images of Michael purportedly inside of a gay nightclub leaked online.
