‘RHOP’ star Ashley Darby says she won’t get alimony from ex Michael

Ashley Darby insinuated she won’t be getting any alimony payments from estranged husband Michael Darby amid their ongoing divorce.

During “The Real Housewives of Potomac” Season 7 reunion trailer, host Andy Cohen asked Ashley about the “status” of the former couple’s prenup — which apparently left the reality star high and dry.

The 34-year-old admitted things “really just did not work out in my favor.”

The revelation took her costars by surprise, as Gizelle Bryant tried to clarify, “You can’t get alimony?”

An equally shocked Dr. Wendy Osefo also turned to her castmate, asking “Why did you sign that?”

Ashely Darby said her divorce from Michael Darby didn’t sway in her “favor.”

The news comes less than a year after the exes, who share two sons, announced their separation following eight years of marriage

Despite the breakup, Ashley quickly moved on with “Summer House” star Luke Gulbranson after the pair hit it off at BravoCon.

However, the rebound proved to be too much, too soon and the twosome called it quits just a few months later — which Ashley blamed on her estranged husband.

“It’s not really about Luke, but [Michael and I] just have a hard time period with co-parenting and with separating,” the reality star said last month on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

“It’s my situation with Michael that affected Luke and I, and like I said, he was a trooper but ultimately it’s just not there.”

Meanwhile, Bryant thinks it’s just a matter of time until the “Summer House” hunk, 39, and her co-star rekindle their romance.

The “Reasonably Shady” podcast host believes the pair will get back together once the Darbys’ divorce is finalized, saying it’s best not to “ruffle feathers or upset the other party” until finances are settled.

“I think it totally makes sense that Ashley just needs to figure that out right now,” Bryant said on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast. “And then later, when all that’s inked up, she can live her best life — maybe with Luke.”

Part 1 of the reunion kicks off on Feb. 19, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, while the following two parts will air on Feb. 26 and March 5, at the same time.
