‘RHOP’ Star Ashley Darby Confirms Split From Husband



Ashley Darby and her husband, Michael Darby, are going their separate ways.

The Real Housewives Of Potomac star announced the news Tuesday afternoon via a statement to Bravo’s “The Daily Dish”.

“Almost eight years ago, when Michael and I said ‘I do,’ we anticipated sharing every single day together from that moment forward,” the reality star said “Unfortunately, that is not our current reality. We have decided to separate.”

Ashley, 33, went on to say that she and the Australian businessman — who is 29 years her senior — are “aware that there will be many speculative views as to why” they called it quits.

“People will be quick to assume that the causes were too much intrusion by reality TV into the most personal parts of our lives, age gap issues, cultural problems, or child-rearing differences. Pieces of all these may have affected our pure love for each other, but no one reason is the root cause of our mutual decision to go our separate ways.”

Ashley explained that she and Michael are simply at “very different stages” of their lives and have “very different goals” for their futures. “We both want the other to achieve true happiness and fulfillment and feel that we cannot do this together.”

The Darbys – who share sons Dean, 2, and Dylan, 1 – tied the knot in May 2014 and have been on “RHOP” since the show premiered in 2016.

Unfortunately their time on “RHOP” has been riddled with controversy. In 2018 a cameraman accused Michael of groping him during filming for Season 4. Michael was subsequently slapped with felony assault and misdemeanor improper sexual contact charges over the incident, but they were later dropped.

There were also cheating accusations, and uncomfortably flirtatious comments toward some of the ladies’ husbands and boyfriends.

Ashley appears to be living her best life. She recently posted a video on Instagram all glammed up, rocking a black crop top and pants showing off her toned body. In the caption she wrote: “Hot Mom Summer is loading in 3, 2, 1…”

Needless to say we can’t wait for the new season of ‘RHOP’
