Sweet swirly Potomac love…

Ashley Darby Defends Her Marriage To Michael Darby

During the “Real Housewives of Potomac” cast member Ashley Darby has fielded criticism from her costars for not only being “THOT-ish”, but for being married to a man 29 years her senior.

The 27-year-old Bravo star has since taken to her blog to clap back at her costars and haters who raise their eyebrows at her union.

Via BravoTV: What were you thinking when Gizelle was asking about you and your husband?

AD: My relationship with Michael is anything but traditional, so I’m not surprised that weaves shift when I talk about it. There’s a 29 year age difference, we hail from different continents, we’re different races, AND we have polar political views.

Patti Stanger would certainly never match us, but our common views on love and life create a strong underlying foundation in our marriage.

The icing on our heart-shaped cake is a shared passion for adventure. For our honeymoon, we trekked Mt. Kilimanjaro which tested our relationship in a whole new way. Don’t fret – the romance never died, we joined the (15) mile high club ;). With those endorphins, who needs Viagra?!

She also revealed how they met and said it was love at first sight. She also added that she pursued Michael, not the other way around. How did you meet your husband?

AD: I met Michael when I was 22 and bartending at L2 in Georgetown. At the time, I was working at night, going to school during the day, and enjoying my youth 24/7. I was talking to my manager in the main office when I watched Michael walk in on the security camera. Sweet baby Cleatus! Even with a blurry, black and white picture, I was hooked. Love at first sight is real, y’all!

There was never any confusion about his age – I knew Michael wasn’t a young stallion, but he has this je ne sais quoi quality about him. When I (nervously) approached him I couldn’t say, “You should wife me up,” so I asked about a marketing internship at his company. After a few months, I gathered up the courage to ask him out for a real drink and that’s all she wrote! Moral of the story: trust your gut and go for what you want!
