Ashley Darby is in a period of change on The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 8.

In addition to moving on from her marriage to Michael, the RHOP O.G. has just 
"settled into her new home with sons Dean and Dylan."

As Ashley adjusts to her new normal, she's trying to set a positive co-parenting precedent with her ex. On Season 8, Episode 2, which aired on November 12, Ashley opened up about taking a family trip to the Bahamas with her ex and their two sons. She also revealed where she stands in her divorce.

Ashley Darby Shares a Co-Parenting Update

While looking for plants for her party alongside her mom, Sheila Matthews, Ashley revealed why she wanted to take a trip with her ex.

"We did go to the Bahamas together; we had a great time," she said. "We're still navigating co-parenting, and it's going really well. I don't think either of us really wants to rock that boat."

Though the two were on vacation together, Ashley said that their dynamic has changed from lovers to something more platonic.

"Even in the Bahamas, even though we were there together, it was like we were two friends with our kids..." she continued. "It was the most respectful we've been to each other in a long time."
