Ashley during the episode titled Not All Fun And Games during a family fun day event at a park told Mia Thornton, 37, and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, 57, that she was having a ‘tougher day’ because Michael had his vasectomy.

‘Was that already, like, planned, or do you think he did that to be spiteful?,’ Mia asked.

‘No, he thinks I’m trying to, like, get pregnant,’ said Ashley who has three-year-old son Dean and 19-month-old son Dylan with Michael.

‘Huh?,’ Mia reacted.

‘Like, that’s one of the reasons we haven’t been intimate, ’cause he thinks, like, I’m trying to keep him in there a little longer,’ Ashley said.

A producer asked Ashley in a confessional why Michael getting a vasectomy made her sad.

‘I know it’s a little silly, but knowing that it will be biologically impossible to have more children with Michael makes me sad because it’s a little bit final,’ Ashley said.

Mia in a confessional quipped that Ashley should have more children with Michael to benefit financially.

Little silly: 'I know it's a little silly, but knowing that it will be biologically impossible to have more children with Michael makes me sad because it's a little bit final,' Ashley said

‘She probably should have, like, two more before she decided to divorce his ass. Check one, check two, check three, check four, let’s go. So, …but Michael got a vasectomy because he doesn’t want any illegitimate children running around, okay? Did I say that out loud? My bad,’ Mia said.

Mia asked Ashley if Michael had done anything to her to cause their split and she replied, ‘No, no, he hasn’t done anything. No, no, no, no, no.’

‘Well then why leave if he hasn’t done anything? I’m confused. I’m sorry,’ said Mia’s best friend Jacqueline.

‘Well, he asked me for a threesome, okay? And, so, we used to do threesomes, but I don’t want to do threesome anymore,’ Ashley explained.

Mia asked if this happened recently and Ashley said it was in December.

‘Been there. Done that,’ Jacqueline said of participating in threesomes.

Candiace in a confessional said, ‘I’m kind of numb to the IVF process in this moment. I feel so lost, and I’m just…I feel like I’m in purgatory.’

‘You didn’t fail. You just have to regroup. That’s not a failure, it’s really not,’ Ashley told her.

Ashley was then shown 14 hours later driving alone as her phone started chiming and multiple headlines were shown about her filing for separation from Michael.

‘I have no idea who could have said anything. You know, my circle is pretty small for a reason,’ Ashley said in a confessional.

‘Ugh!,’ she said in her car while looking exasperated.

Ashley called her publicist Auntea as they were both stressing out about the leak.

‘I have no clue who could have possibly thought that it would be okay to tell my personal, intimate business to a blog,’ Ashley said.

‘Without it having come from me directly, it looks so much worse, and it looks like there’s all this, like, conflict, and, like, that’s just not the case, you know,’ Ashley said.

Auntea looked on the bright side and said there was still time to release the official statement that she and Ashley earlier worked on.

Ashley said she was unable to reach Michael who earlier was on a plane to Las Vegas and Auntea asked how she felt about releasing the statement that Michael already approved.

Auntea noted that Michael was already being demonized and Ashley admitted she was uncomfortable making a decision without consulting him.

‘My gut says to do it, to release the statement,’ Ashley told Auntea.

‘You got this. And it’s divine timing, too,’ Auntea said.

‘This is God’s timing, huh?,’ Ashley said.

‘Yeah, girl. Whether I’m ready or not, He said, ”Let’s go”,’ Ashley said.
