The Real Housewives of Potomac (RHOP) aired the premiere episode for its seventh season on Sunday, October 9, 2022, at 8 pm ET on Bravo. The episode saw the cast members revisit past issues and navigate personal relationships and rumors. Viewers were fed significant drama right from the beginning as they saw cast members getting into arguments with each other.

In the premiere episode of the hit reality series, Ashley revealed that she and Michael were buying a house in the midst of them getting a divorce. Fans, however, didn't believe the same. One tweeted:

The official synopsis of Episode 1 read:

“The Darbys might divorce, but Ashley's story doesn't quite add up; Wendy explores a new venture; Mia's murky social media behavior is questionable; Karen hosts a spring fling celebration of life party; some of the ladies are confronted on their lies.”

On tonight's episode of RHOP, cast members Gizelle, Karen and Robyn discussed Ashley's potential divorce with her husband Michael. The ladies were concerned about their friend and wanted to make sure she was okay. Ashley confirmed that she and Michael were indeed getting a divorce.

When asked why the decision was made so soon after having a baby, Ashley pointed out that they had different lifestyles. While she wanted monogamy after her husband's infidelity was revealed, Michael was opposed to the system. She also confessed to not drinking anymore, a lifestyle choice that her husband wasn't completely into. She also added that they aren't intimate anymore.

Ashley, however, was unable to explain the strong reasons behind getting the divorce and simply said that the couple "were drifting apart." The RHOP star later revealed that she and her husband were planning on getting a house together. Her fellow cast members were shocked to hear that she was planning to buy a house with her husband in the midst of a divorce.

While the ladies speculated that Ashley didn't want a divorce, the latter confessed that to her, divorce meant splitting the financials, something her friends didn't agree with.

In a confessional on RHOP, Robyn said:

"Nothing is making sense. When Juan and I got divorced, there's no way I'm buying a house with him. I'm not doing that."

Karen also had her opinion on the issue, and told Ashley:

"My thing is, you gotta be prepared. When divorce happens, it gets ugly.It's not a beautiful thing. And people do what they have to do to achieve their goal. So if he start pulling bones out of your closet, make sure you throw the full fu***n skeleton in his direction, okay?"

Although the RHOP cast members understood Ashley's situation, Robyn later stated that she was doing it to gain attention from people. When Ashley explained to her parents that she and husband were buying the house as a Limited Liability Company (LLC), her father felt that it was more of a business than a divorce and advised his daughter to get a lawyer.
