Ashley Darby looked back on her and Luke Gulbranson’s short-lived romance, revealing why it came to an end.
“Really we just sort of grew apart,” the “Real Housewives of Potomac” star told Page Six’s Evan Real and Danny Murphy during the “Virtual Reali-Tea” live taping at Chelsea Table & Stage in New York City on Thursday.
“My situation is complicated. My stuff with my previous partner has gotten better but at that time, [it] was really bad,” Darby, 35, added, referencing estranged husband Michael Darby. “He stuck out through a lot of it.
“I commend him,” she continued, “but there was a final straw that we decided to keep between us. And I respect that.”
She noted that Gulbranson is now “allegedly … in a relationship, according to the blogs.”
“It’s not really about Luke, but [Michael and I] just have a hard time period with co-parenting and with separating,” she explained. “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.”
Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’
She made headlines the following month for admitting she had fallen “in love” with the “Winter House” star during their time together.
Ashley didn’t just speak about her own love life on Thursday, also giving podcast listeners insight into Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke’s broken engagement.
“They were in love up until like last week or something,” the yoga instructor said of finding it hard to “believe” their split.
“Having been around them, I realized firsthand how smitten he was with her. It was real,” she added, predicting that “something really paramount must have happened.”
