Earlier this week, a rumor started that Ashley and Michael had been fired from RHOP and were not filming the fifth season with the rest of the cast.
“MTO News confirmed today that both Ashley and Michael Darby have been fired. Rumors have been swirling that Ashley isn’t returning for #RHOP season 5 after pictures of the cast filming were revealed and Ashley wasn’t there. If true, will you miss the Darbys?,” the Real Housewives Confessionals account tweeted.
This tweet left RHOP fans shocked and hoping the news wasn’t true.
I hope we get to see Ashley as a mom. And the Michael stories pretty much carry this show so I hope it’s not true. Michael just needs to keep his hands off the men!

Without Ashley, the rest of them have nothing to talk about. And without Ashley and her mom, Candiace has no story line ????? pic.twitter.com/mwGHdzAjWo

Well, it turns out it isn’t!
The Instagram account The Black Socialites insisted this media report was 100% false.
In fact, they say Ashley is currently filming season 5 of RHOP and “still has her flute in hand.”
Ashley confirmed this claim by commenting on the post, “You’re a real one.”
Part two of the Real Housewives of Potomac season 4 reunion airs September 22nd at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
Ashley and Michael’s drama really makes the show especially for season 4. I mean the other drama is good but their shit makes it next level.
P.S. AllAboutTRH was featured on season 4 of RHOP several times! Woohoo!
