Fast Forward, Ashley has now addressed the situation on “Sister Circle Live” on TV One. Ashley said:
“So, allegedly my husband touched one of the cameraman who then decided to file a police report in Montgomery County….. And, the way Montgomery County works is, as soon as a report is filed, it goes into the system. Whereas in other states, it actually goes to a prosecutor first, and then they decide whether or not they’re going to analyze it.”
“However, in Montgomery County that’s it the whole kit and kaboodle. They get to evaluate it later. However, he decided to go to the press, and made the press and court of public opinion judge.”
“I can’t figure out what could his motivation could be. We’ve been nothing but nice to them. We treat our production team like family….”
Bravo and production company Truly Original announced at the beginning of this month (October 1st) that Michael had been suspended from filming scenes for the reality show.
