By now, Ashley Darby is used to having a husband who's the talk of the town. We've seen her and her hubby, Michael Darby, weather many rumors about their relationship over the years on The Real Housewives of Potomac.
However, it looks like Ashley and Michael's marriage may be in jeopardy once again when RHOP returns for Season 5 this summer.
A press release for the new season teases some major ups and downs for the couple after they welcomed their first child together, son Dean, in July 2019: "Ashley Darby and Michael are in heavenly bliss with their new baby, Dean. But just when their relationship gets back on track, their newfound happiness is threatened by news of Michael’s wild night on the town."
And in the above trailer for the new season, we see that the couple is struggling to reignite that romance after welcoming their son. "I don't have the sex drive that I used to have," Ashley tells her husband.
But then later on in the trailer, Candiace Dillard Bassett appears to get a bombshell of a text message featuring a photo of Michael. "He was in the room with several strippers?" Candiace says. "What? Oh my god."
In another instance, Ashley reads a different message out loud: "He was asking who he can take to a hotel nearby?"
During what appears to be a tense dinner with Ashley, Michael tells his wife, "We ended up going back to a hotel."
All will be revealed when RHOP returns for Season 5 this summer. Until then, check in on how Ashley's first few months of motherhood have been going, below.
