Ashley and Michael Darby's marriage has been one of the most spoken about topics among the 'Real Housewives of Potomac' viewers. An almost naked photo of Michael made it to the gossip blogs after the show's castmate Candiace Dillard received a text from one of her friends stating that they saw him at the strip club the other day and heard him boasting about having a wife and a boyfriend. All this happened while Ashley and the rest of the housewives were out at Monique's lake house for a relaxed weekend. After returning, Ashley questioned Michael about the cheating scandal and he brushed it off saying that they just kissed and he passed out shortly after reaching the hotel. He said that he found the woman sleeping next to her as he woke up the next morning with no memories from the previous night and as he went to grab his watch to check the time, she snapped that photo of him and sold it to the blogs. Ashley bought his explanation because this is not the first time that their marriage has had a third person involvement. The couple had engaged in threesomes before, which was revealed after this fiasco came to light and Ashley forgave Michael this time, but only on the condition that they will never in the future engage in a three-way act. She was firm about this and told Michael that she'd leave him if something like this ever happened again in the future and he agreed to abide by the new rules of their marriage.

A couple of days later, Ashley also told the other housewives that she and Michael did have many instances in the past where they got another person involved to spice things up, in order to put an end to all the questions they had about where her marriage stood. This was a part of the episode that aired a couple of weeks ago and after that Monique-Candiace's fight took center stage in the show. However, the focus is back on Ashley and Michael's marriage and the upcoming episode sees the couple approach their therapist in order to mend their marriage. Ashley reveals everything they had to go through and also speaks about their past. She once again reiterates that she doesn't want to involve a third person ever in their marriage to which Michael interrupts saying that it's the baby who's created restrictions. The therapist then asks Michael if he knows why he cheated and what is the root of all these problems to which he says that there's a lot of reasons including his father and what he did to their family. He also blamed his cheating on their toddler Dean saying that after his birth, he was pushed out and that he felt "plain isolation." Ashley looked very surprised when he said that and she admitted to having heard him say this for the very first time.
