From the outside, it looks as if Ashley and Michael Darby should pull the plug on their marriage considering the obstacles they face season after season. However, those closest to her know that the two have an unconventional marriage that intends to last a lifetime.
During the latest episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace Dillard gets a message from a friend that Michael was out during Ashley’s first night away from him after having their first child telling people that he had a wife and a boyfriend.
The preview for the next installment shows Darby denying that allegation; however, something shady did go down. Last year, the real estate mogul appeared on multiple blogs for being in a hotel room with a woman that is not his wife.
Although that will most likely upset Ashley, it’s clear that it wasn’t a betrayal that would cause her to divorce him because she just announced that she was pregnant with baby number two.
According to Robyn Dixon, this isn’t much of a surprise.
‘To be honest, I wasn’t surprised at all. I totally sensed that she was in the mode of being ready for baby No. 2, and it’s really cool to watch her as a mother because she’s eating up every minute of it and loves every minute of it. And I know she and I kind of bumped heads in seasons before because she didn’t really understand how motherhood changes you and how you sacrifice for your children and now just watching her with her son, mostly on her Instagram, she is head over heels in love with him. So it’s really cool to see this transformation of Ashley and how she’s embracing being a mother,’ she spilled to E! News.
She also commented on how her co-star’s marriage woes make them stronger.
‘It’s very funny that this episode coming up is really going to be a tough one for Ashley. I think we’re going to have to really watch how she reacts to the news. And to be honest I think we’ve all kind of figured out that their relationship is kind of unconventional. Actually, I wouldn’t call it that, but for them to understand. I’m at the point where I’m like, ‘OK, if it works for you, it works for me.’ So we’re going to have to watch to see how she reacts to it and how she eventually gets to the point where she’s having baby No. 2.’
Do you think this new addition will save Ashley’s marriage?
