Michael Darby’s relationship and family

Since The Real Housewives of Potomac debuted, Ashley Darby and Michael Darby’s romance has generated a lot of buzz. The two got married on May 15, 2014.

Less than two years had passed since Ashley and Darby’s marriage when the Maryland-based company made its debut. Because Ashley is 29 years younger than her husband, her coworkers immediately questioned their relationship. The couple encountered difficulties when trying to establish their restaurant Oz in season 2 of the show.

During the RHOP season 2 reunion, which aired in July 2017, Ashley revealed that she had moved out of her home with Michael while they were apart.

Months after their divorce, the couple reconciled and welcomed two sons, Dean (born in July 2019) and Dylan (March 2021). Ashley admitted to the duo having an unconventional marriage, and Michael was accused of sexually harassing a Bravo cameraman, which he denied.

The couple called it quits ahead of the season 7 premiere of RHOP, with Ashely announcing their divorce after “almost 8 magical years” of marriage.
