Karen Huger And Monique Samuels Tease On ‘Messy’ New Season Of RHOP And Reveal How Michael Darby's Alleged Sexual Assault Claims Will Play Out In Season 4!

Karen Huger and Monique Samuels tease what viewers can expect on the fourth season of The Real Housewives of Potomac, in particular the sexual assault allegations against Ashley Darby's husband Michael Darby.

"Yeah, big butts," Karen Huger told Entertainment Tonight. "Men’s butts. Women’s butts. You know, all the above."

"It's definitely hard not to jump to conclusions, especially given the history. I had to realize that, you know, they're human," said Monique Samuels. "We're going through it together. I've been in a position before where people are trying to judge or pass judgment. We've all been there. So it's like everybody gets a turn."

"I know I can only speak for myself, I was being fair," Karen jumps in. "I always said, I need Michael to be totally vindicated. So I'm looking forward to that."

If you recall, Michael was accused of “grabbing and groping” the butt of a Bravo cameraman while filming an episode of the Bravo hit reality series. But charges were dismissed on October, 4 in a Montgomery County court due to insufficient evidence.

"When you see it in the news, it's, like, actual charges being brought up, it was very surreal," Monique recalls. "And then to know that it's gonna play out both ways on camera? I'm really interested in seeing how this unfolds for myself, because, being in the midst of it all, it was like a reality check within the reality show."

"When you're looking at the cameras and the people who are in your home, and then it kind of lets you realize that, wow, I really don't know the people that are in my home who I'm working with," she shares. "And then the other side it's like… like, it was just pretty, like, unbelievable. You know like, what is going on?"

Meanwhile, Karen admits she feels for Ashley for having to deal with the issue in the public eye.

"I have to say, even though Ashley and I have not always seen eye to eye, she's trying to walk in her truth and understands that some of the things that she did in her past are unacceptable," Karen shares. "She's making -- attempting to make -- amends for that."

"For three seasons, Ashley has been vindictive, malicious and a liar," Karen alleges. "The growth I see in her caused me to pause before I become judgmental with her."

"I have every reason to lynch her, and could do it well," she adds. "But I pause. I pause because I see a genuine effort in that direction to change what is wrong about her and she's making that conscious decision to change that. So, I hope [the viewers] see that. I haven't seen the season, but I saw it. And while I'm not totally convinced, I am open to the growth."

Karen describes the season in one word: Messy.

"All of the lies come out, OK?" she teases. "All is revealed. I’m like, yes! Vindication! Hello!"

"You're gonna see a lot of ups and downs," Monique shares. "Back and forth, mixed emotions. It's kinda like a roller coaster, it’s all over the place."

"A lot of forgiveness," Karen adds. "A lot of forgiveness."

"You're gonna see us actually, like, going through the motions, like, while it's actually happening," Monique says. "It's not like we look back and reflect and we're, we got our thoughts and ideas together. Like, you're literally witnessing, one day we felt this way, the next day, we felt that way. So, you're gonna literally see how we processed the information we were receiving."

"And I think the audience will find that relatable, because it shows personal growth in all of us," Karen says. “Except for Gizelle [Bryant]."
