Michael Darby is setting the record straight on photos of him from a recent night out.

How to Watch

When Michael appeared as the guest bartender during wife Ashley Darby's appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on August 1 (clip above), the titular host mentioned to The Real Housewives of Potomac husband that "there were photos that surfaced this week of you at a bar speaking to a blonde woman, and everyone just assumed the worst."

Andy Cohen then gave Michael the floor to address the online chatter, and he shared that since restrictions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic have lifted, he and Ashley have been going out. "Sometimes we go out together, sometimes we go out on our own. So I went out, had a good time," Michael said, adding that "of course there's fans all over the place." "But, you know, I'm always gonna have pictures taken of me in places. I really don't care anymore. I have a good time, and I love this woman dearly, and we're together forever. So it's as simple as that."

Andy then asked Ashley, "And I'm assuming that if he goes out alone, he has your full trust at this point?" Ashley confirmed, "Yes, he does," to which Michael added, "And vice versa."

Though we've seen the couple deal with issues in the past on RHOP, Ashley shared that they had especially made an effort to stay connected before and after they welcomed their second child, son Dylan, who arrived in March. "We are doing things differently this time postpartum, and we're having more fun this time than we did last time," Ashley explained. "So I think I'm keeping him happy at home."

In fact, Ashley memorably detailed just how she and Michael were keeping things spicy in the bedroom earlier this season of RHOP, which Andy asked for some clarity on during Sunday's WWHL, noting, "I'm not often embarrassed asking questions on this show, but we've got Michael here, we've got Ashley here." 

Ashley then addressed "the speculation in the Potomac universe," as Andy put it, about her comments about getting intimate with Michael, which you can check out in the below clip.
