“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Ashley Darby revealed Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke were “smitten” days before their breakup.
“They were so in love — and they were in love up until like last week or something,” the reality star told Page Six’s Evan Real and Danny Murphy during Thursday’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” live taping at Chelsea Table & Stage in New York City.
Her comments came after Murphy and Real asked her thoughts on the “Summer House” couple ending their engagement seemingly out of the blue.
“I don’t believe it,” the 35-year-old mom of two continued. “Having been around them, I realized firsthand how smitten he was with her. It was real. That’s why I’m like, ‘I gotta see some proof.’”
She hypothesized that “something really paramount must have happened” for them to end their engagement, but she refuses to believe the rumors until the couple confirms it themselves.
Darby was also joined on stage by “Southern Charm” star Venita Aspen, who echoed her disbelief.

“There is no way they’re actually not engaged anymore,” Aspen, 29, expressed. “Did you see the ring? He’s not getting that money back — or the ring!”
Page Six confirmed on Aug. 31 that the Bravo couple had called it quits three months before their destination wedding in Mexico.
“The two were set to get married in November, but Carl told Lindsay he couldn’t move forward with the wedding,” an insider previously told “Entertainment Tonight.”
“The breakup was filmed and will most likely play out on the next season of ‘Summer House.’”
Their unexpected split came two weeks after Hubbard, 37, celebrated her bridal shower and nearly a week before she was meant to travel to the Bahamas for her bachelorette party.
Just last month, the publicist gushed about how hands-on Radke, 38, had been with wedding planning.
“It’s so sweet to see Carl as we keep checking to-dos off of our list,” she told People. “We are literally three months away at this point, and it’s going to go by so fast.”
“Next thing you know, I’m going to be walking down the aisle,” Hubbard added.
The former couple met while filming Season 1 of their Bravo show in 2016 — but it wasn’t until Season 4 in 2019 that they decided to give their relationship a shot.
The couple split nearly a year later with Hubbard admitting in a since-deleted Instagram post that Radke wasn’t ready for the same level of commitment as she was.
However, in January 2022, the duo decided to give their relationship another shot, and seven months later, Radke proposed to Hubbard at Southhampton’s Dune Beach.
