The Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby isn’t letting her separation from her husband Michael Darby get in the way of having an amazing summer.

The glamorous mom of two little boys still resides in a gorgeous penthouse in D.C., which offers spectacular views of the famous Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building all within one sight line. In addition, Ashley just loves a beautiful rooftop, but there’s just one little thing. She is still living with Michael together in the penthouse with their sons.

The Facts Will Soon Emerge

The new season of RHOP (#7) will begin this summer, but an exact date hasn’t been announced. Still, Ashley told Fox 5 News-TV in D.C. that her storyline will include the breakup of their marriage after an eight-year union. She will discuss on the new season why the split came about and says that the breakup with Michael came on recently. Ashley has shared infidelities in their marriage on the reality TV show, but she says TV viewers will be surprised why the couple is headed for divorce.

The co-parenting is going well, and they’re keeping their temperaments both in check for the sake of the children, Ashley says.

 Lettin’ Her Barbie Beauty Out

Meantime, Ashley is prominent on her Instagram page and recently shared planning a “Bad B!tch Summer” for her many fans. She enjoys turning into a “Darby Barbie” and showed off photos of a professional makeup shoot that included glittery gold eyeshadow, black eyeliner and shimmering pink lips. Her hair looked elegant in a high half-up ponytail with long, voluminous waves and face-framing pieces.

Ashley also featured new pics of Michael and the boys and praised him for being a wonderful father to their adorable sons.
