Just a few weeks after Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby announced her separation from her husband of eight years, Michael Darby, Ashley just revealed some surprising news about the estranged couple’s current living situation.
While appearing on FOX 5 DC in a clip captured by The Jasmine Brand Instagram account, Ashley is saying that she and her children are doing “great” following the split and that she and Michael are still living “under the same roof.”
After being asked how Ashley is coping with the situation, Ashley said, “Well, I’m great. My kids are pretty young. My son is two, my other son is one so they don’t really have an awareness. Michael and I are still living together, we’re still under the same roof, so no difference for them.”
Ashley also admitted she couldn’t share a lot about the split due to the upcoming season of RHOP, but she did admit it was a “recent” decision and gave some hints as to what led to the decision, seemingly suggesting it had nothing to do with the latest cheating rumors involving Michael and another woman.
“It is more of a recent thing. My marriage has been through quite a lot. I’ve been open about that on the show. We’ve had issues with infidelity that we’ve overcome. It’s nothing of that nature,” Ashley shared. “I do give more of an insight as to how and why we got to this place (on the show) and it’s not for the reasons that a lot of people think.”
It’s good to hear that the separation is having no real negative impact on Ashley and Michael’s children.
In Ashley’s initial statement given on April 19th via Bravo’s Daily Dish, the RHOP star said there was really “no one reason” that led to the couple’s split, only that the two “are at very different stages in our lives and have different goals for our futures. We both want the other to achieve true happiness and fulfillment and feel that we cannot do this together.”
Ashely and Michael’s marriage has been rocked by rumors of infidelity and sexual harassment for years, with Michael being caught in his underwear in another woman’s hotel room and appearing to grope a camera operator while filming for RHOP. Hopefully, the two can work this out amicably if only for their sons, Dean and Dylan, which I’m sure we’ll see play out on the show.
The new season of The Real Housewives of Potomac is currently filming with no airdate set yet.
