Ashley Darby is making it clear she ain’t no gold digger; insisting that she’s a goal digger. There’s a difference, right?
In her Bravo blog this week, Ashley tackles the rumors about Robyn Dixon’s marriage, Monique Samuels’ game night, and why she isn’t a gold digger.
First, Ashley comments on being called a gold digger by Robyn, saying “The term Robyn needs to learn is “goal digger.” I have standards for myself and the life I aim to lead, consequently I have attracted a partner who shares that vision. Robyn should stop deflecting and insulting me with crass and predictable comments. Be original and think about why you’re still defending a man who made it clear he doesn’t see a progression in a relationship with you. I guess for Robyn it’s better to be someone’s security blanket than to be alone.”
As for the rumors that Juan is dating other people, Ashley defends not telling Robyn about it during their lunch; insisting that the meeting wasn’t the place to discuss it.
“That meeting was meant to be about business – how Robyn and I can mutually benefit each other and make some coins. She is working to branch out with her PR business and I’m on a mission to get Oz more involved in the community,” Ashley explains. “I had no intention of discussing personal lives, but it was weighing heavily on me because I know Robyn takes ride or die a little too literally. I tried to gauge how she would take the news by asking where she and Juan are in their relationship. As I suspected she got defensive so I decided our business meeting was not the time or place.”
Then Ashley further defends running the rumor about Juan by Robyn’s BFF Gizelle Bryant; saying she wanted advice from Gizelle on how to handle the situation.
“It’s no secret that Gizelle and Robyn serve as each other’s watch dogs, so I thought it’d be wise to get her advice about how to discuss such a sensitive issue,” Ashley says. “I do not take pleasure in telling people heartbreaking news, especially when kids are involved. Gizelle wasn’t of any help in the matter, but I figured it was worth a try.”
Finally, Ashley dishes on Monique’s game night and wonders if Monique and Gizelle can ever make amends.
“The barbecue spare ribs weren’t the only spicy things in the Samuels’ kitchen that night! While I found it entertaining, I was a little taken aback about how quickly the tension elevated between Monique and Gizelle – usually there’s a little more nice/nasty involved before it escalates to the “get ta steppin” phase. Monique had time for Gizelle that day, though. But it should be noted that even Gizelle’s good friend Erika acknowledged that Madam Green Eyes hated her when they first met. Perhaps these two can make amends too, but I certainly won’t hold my breath,” Ashley says.
