“I really want a house. My budget is a little on the lower side, right? But Michael’s like, ‘Look at these houses,’ and he’s sending me homes on the higher side,” Ashley explained to Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, and Robyn Dixon. When Gizelle asked Ashley to confirm if she and Michael were in fact “buying a house together,” Ashley explained, “It’s being bought in the LLC.”

“That’s both of you?” Gizelle asked, to which Ashley replied, “Yes.”

During a dinner with her family, Ashley shared that she had “been looking a lot” at houses to buy. “This is the thing I’m looking forward to the most about looking for a home,” she added. “Being able to have you guys over like this.” As for figuring out the paperwork of purchasing a home with Michael, Ashley explained, “That is a road we’re going to cross. Part of this house situation will be deciding financials, because I have a mortgage now.”

Later in the episode, Ashley revealed at Karen’s party that she had taken a huge step in the process. “I found a house,” she said. “I made an offer… I made it in the LLC with Michael.”
