There has been plenty of drama on The Real Housewives of Potomac's couples' trip this season. And new tension rose to the surface during the October 17 episode of RHOP when Mia Thornton's husband, Gordon, got under Ashley Darby's skin when she was trying to take a nap on the car ride back from the boat trip and he kept talking about it.

When Dr. Wendy Osefo appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday, the talk show host asked her about the moment. "How surprised were you to see Ashley and G kind of butting heads at the end of tonight's episode?" Andy Cohen asked.

"That threw everyone for a curveball because it came out of nowhere," Wendy said. "And if you can imagine, we all thought that everyone was just playing around, and so it turned serious really quickly."

Ashley, who was on the trip solo with Michael Darby at home caring for their kids, also addressed the moment in The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 6 After Show. She explains, in the clip, below, why that car ride back was "the perfect scenario" for her to catch up on some sleep until Gordon began commenting on it. "I can take a joke. It's fine if someone jokes, but the fact that Gordon kept getting louder," Ashley recalled, adding, "I don't know what sort of reaction he was trying to get out of me or anyone else on the bus, but what really just started to just perturb me was that he just wouldn't stop."

Ashley revealed more about how she felt in that moment in the RHOP After Show, as did Gordon's wife, Mia, and the rest of the cast, below.
