As the news of photos of Ashley Darby's husband, Michael Darby, hit the internet, Robyn went to send the article to Charrisse Jackson Jordan. "Later on, I was talking to Charrisse, she hadn't seen it. I was like, 'Oh, OK, let me send you this,'" Robyn recalled to Gizelle Bryant while the two were out furniture shopping in the episode (clip above). "And I sent it. So I go into my text messages: I sent it to Ashley!"
"Robyn, no!" Gizelle audibly and physically reacted, as you can see in the below still from the episode, to hearing her friend's faux pas.
After saying a quick, "Oh, s--t!" Robyn immediately went into damage control mode. "So, I followed it up to her, 'What do you want us to do with this?'" she told Gizelle.
Gizelle applauded Robyn for her quick thinking. "Look at you fixing a bad situation," she said. "Quick on your feet."
Robyn said on Twitter as the episode aired that she is now much more careful when sending text messages these days. "I seriously quadruple check all my texts before hitting send now!!!" she tweeted.
She also noted how the situation may have been some karma. "That’s what I get for talking about people," Robyn tweeted.
Still, Candiace Dillard Bassett praised Robyn for the skillful way she turned things around in that moment. "First of all, I gagged. I gagged so terribly," Candiace said during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home After Show on September 20. "She's very good at just smoothing things over, and so that was just par for the course for Robyn. She's very good at that. I appreciated that she really tried to make it a positive spin."
