Monique Samuels Has Some Words for Ashley Darby
Ashley Darby admitted in her recent Bravo blog that she took things a little too far with Michael Darby, and she wishes that she handled things differently.
Now Monique Samuels is addressing the situation and she has some words for Ashley.
Here’s an excerpt of her Bravo blog:
Bravotv.com: What is like watching this fight between Ashley Darby and Michael? What do you think about their issues?
MS: I cringed inside the entire time and couldn’t wait for the argument to end. It was very ugly. I’ve always had the mindset to respect my husband, while he, in return, loved me. The way Ashley spoke to Michael was so disturbing to me. There was a time when I was dating my now husband and he expressed to me the importance of respect and being mindful of the way I spoke to him, especially in public. As I watched Ashley and Michael, it made me think of the “young me” and what my husband and I would look and sound like had I not fixed my mouth and delivery during an argument. Ashley seems to be confusing “business” Michael with “husband” Michael. She’s mad that he treats her like a child in business and she wants respect but she forgets that respect is earned. Whether she likes it or not, Michael has been successful in business so she has some proving to do. I’m sure as the restaurant grows and becomes more successful, Michael will recognize that and feel more comfortable about the investment he made. She must also not allow the success or failure of the restaurant determine the outcome of their marriage. Marriage and business are two separate entities. You can put a dollar amount on a business, but not on love and marriage.
