Ashley Darby has been through the ringer throughout her five seasons on "The Real Housewives of Potomac," and it's only made her stronger. Gibson Johns interviews Ashley about all things "RHOP," including that scene with her husband, Michael, that needed a producer to step in, her thoughts on all things Monique vs. Candiace, being frustrated by other franchises not sharing as much as her cast does and more.
ASHLEY DARBY: I had really hyped myself up to--
GIBSON JOHNS: Right.
ASHLEY DARBY: --handle whatever they hurled my way. I just knew-- because I've been very vocal about opinions that I have about other people's relationships, right? So I know that whatever I spewed out is probably going to be thrown back at me. So I was prepared. I was like, yes, I was giving myself a little pep talk in the car. And then when that happened, I was like, oh, OK. I was kind of like the Homer Simpson meme, you know?
GIBSON JOHNS: Back away.
ASHLEY DARBY: Where I just like, slid back into the bushes. I can handle being center stage, and I don't mind it.
GIBSON JOHNS: Of course.
ASHLEY DARBY: But, you know, it was kind of nice to prop my feet up. Well, not really prop my feet up, because that whole situation that followed afterward was anything but relaxing. But it was nice to be off a little bit.
