Just a few weeks after confirming on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she was “not romantically involved” with Luke anymore because her ongoing divorce from Michael Darby was “complicated,” The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member spent time with the Summer House alum in his home state of Minnesota.

On January 21, Ashley supported Luke at Cowboy Jack’s in Minneapolis for the launch of his lager, Happy Dog Kölsch. She wasn’t the only Bravolebrity in attendance for the event, as Summer House’s engaged duo Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard were there, as was Family Karma’s Brian Benni.

Ashley posted a photo from the beer launch on her Instagram feed — though Luke himself wasn’t in the shot (but Brian was!). 

“It’s a celebration every time we link up!” Ashley wrote in the caption of her selfie with Brian and another friend. “Fun time celebrating the launch of Luke’s Happy Dog Kölsch.”

She also shared an Instagram Story with Carl, Lindsay, and Luke’s parents (which Carl re-shared on his own page). While she was still dating Luke in December 2022, Ashley revealed that she “fell in love” with his family when she met them during her first visit to Minnesota.

Carl later posted an Instagram Story about how he was “proud” of Luke for the launch, and Luke himself posted photos with the Bravolebrities who came to the event. 

The day after the beer event, Luke’s mom, Cindy Gulbranson, his sister, and Lindsay returned the favor by attending a Real Housewives Drag Brunch Buffet that Ashley hosted in Minnesota.

As Ashley told an attendee at said Drag Brunch, her current situation with Luke isn't simple.

"You know how on Facebook, you can say, 'It's complicated?'" Ashley said at the event, per the @QueensofBravo Twitter account when asked about where things stand with Luke now. "So, it's not a no, it's a not right now."

Ashley did promise to keep fans "abreast as things develop," and she called Luke "such a cutie."

If Luke and Ashley are planning to keep things platonic, then Family Karma’s Anisha Ramakrishna has a suggestion for who the RHOP cast member could date next: Anisha’s castmate Brian Benni.
