Well, this was inevitable…at some point. Following eight years together, Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Ashley Darby filed for divorce from her husband, Michael Darby. The announcement comes at a time when the ladies are recording the new season of the reality show.
It’s about time for Ashley Darby to go it alone again.
Since her husband, Michael Darby, has been embroiled in a series of controversies on “Real Housewives of Potomac,” Ashley appears to be giving up.

Another relationship has come to an end! It has been widely reported that “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Ashley Darby and her husband have parted ways. Ashley and Michael Darby, who have been married for almost eight years and have two children, have chosen to call it quits. In a long statement broadcast on Bravo’s The Daily Dish on Tuesday, Ashley revealed all to the network (April 19).
‘We are at different stages in our lives,’ the mother of two said, and she gave an exclusive statement to Bravo, stating she and Michael ‘cannot do this together.”
“Almost eight years ago, when Michael and I said ‘I do,’ we anticipated sharing every single day together from that moment forward. Unfortunately, that is not our current reality. We have decided to separate. We are aware that there will be many speculative views as to why we have made this decision.
Her statement continued, “While our romantic bond is broken, we will always love and respect each other. We also know that true happiness can only be achieved by continuing to work together and putting our hearts and souls into raising our two beautiful boys, Dean and Dylan. They will always feel loved and supported, for they were truly created out of love. As this is a personal matter for us, we appreciate everyone who has been a part of our journey and ask for your continued support by respecting us as we go through this emotional situation.”
It’s interesting because Michael was suspected of cheating again around three weeks ago. Ashley, on the other hand, was adamant in her defense of him.
In Columbia, South Carolina, he was spotted with another woman. The photo, which shows Michael sitting close to a brunette at a wedding he was not at with Ashley, could be innocent or it could be more than that. When it comes to stuff like these, Michael has a poor track record.
We’re not surprised because Ashley told us just last year that she was wary of Michael because of his history of misdeeds. In spite of all of his antics, she has remained by his side, thus it is quite surprising that she finally decided to break up with him.
While trying to conceive and dealing with the challenges of postpartum, Ashley went above and beyond to fulfill her lifelong goal of becoming a mother. Television viewers saw the marriage crumble as Ashley repeatedly begged Michael for more help as she struggled to rediscover her self-confidence.

Love Story of Ashley and Michael Ends
Season one of RHOP introduced viewers to Ashley and Michael. Viewers received a taste of the good, the terrible, and the ugly in this relationship, as they did in many others on reality television. As new parents to Dean, and Dylan, as well as dealing with Michael’s sexual assault allegations, the pair opened up to the cameras about everything they’ve been through.
Ashley, on the other hand, is adamant that the union was not ended by a single event.
“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 continued, “we are now both 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.”
Ashley was clear about their dedication to parenting their children despite their failed romance.
“While our romantic bond is broken, we will always love and respect each other. We also know that true happiness can only be achieved by continuing to work together and putting our hearts and souls into raising our two beautiful boys, Dean and Dylan,” Ashley said. “They will always feel loved and supported, for they were truly created out of love.”
Atleast One Year of Separation is Required by Virginia Law Before a Divorce Can Be Granted
B. Scott was the first to report about the couple’s legal separation, citing an insider with direct knowledge of their relationship. As soon as the news broke, Twitter users were ready to respond. According to their investigation, the documentation was submitted to Virginia.
According to the Virginia State Bar, “showing that for more than one year one of the parties intended to and the parties have continuously lived separate and apart without any cohabitation” is sufficient for the state to give “no-fault” divorces.
In light of the sensitive nature of the situation, Ashley asked for everyone’s help in showing her and her family respect as they go through this difficult time.
