WWE's website announced on June 1, 2006 that Ashley would be the newest SmackDown! diva. She made her debut on the June 2, 2006 edition of SmackDown! as a special guest commentator during the Kristal Marshall vs. Jillian Hall match. Upon debuting on SmackDown!, Ashley aligned herself with Jillian Hall as they feuded with Michelle McCool and Kristal Marshall. She won her debut match on the July 21 edition of SmackDown!, where she teamed up with Hall and defeated McCool and Marshall. At The Great American Bash 2006, Massaro won the Fatal Four Way Bra and Panties Match. On the August 4 edition of SmackDown!, Ashley broke her knuckle in a match against Kristal Marshall , in which Marshall cheated to win.
Ashley returned to the ring on the September 8, 2006 edition of SmackDown! where she, Paul London, and Brian Kendrick defeated Idol Stevens, K.C. James and Michelle McCool in a Six-Person Mixed Tag Team Match. Following the victory, Ashley became the manager for London and Kendrick, accompanying them to the ring for their matches on SmackDown! and PPVs. Ashley competed in the first ever Extreme Strip Poker segment on ECW on October 10, 2006 representing SmackDown!.
During the February 16, 2007 edition of SmackDown!, Ashley unveiled her Playboy cover. Surrounding the release of the magazine, Ashley engaged in a feud with Jillian Hall over who was the most talented Diva on SmackDown! and Halls' jealousy over Ashley's Playboy cover. At No Way Out 2007, Ashley won the first ever Diva Invitational by removing her top to reveal her breasts which were covered with Playboy bunny pasties.

Surrounding the release of the cover, Ashley continued to feud with Jillian, but also began a feud with then WWE Women's Champion, RAW's Melina. Melina was angry over the publicity Ashley had been receiving because of the cover and believed that she deserved more publicity than Ashley for being the Women's Champion. On an episode of SmackDown!, the rivalry was taken to the next level when a catfight broke out between the Divas on the inaugural edition of Miz TV. At WrestleMania 23, Melina defeated Ashley in a LumberJill Match to retain her title.
After WrestleMania, Ashley continued as a valet for WWE Tag Team Champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick. However, on the April 13, 2007 episode of SmackDown!, Ashley was (kayfabe) attacked by Jillian Hall. Ashley loosened a screw in her ankle that would need to be surgically repaired, and the screw will be reinserted into a plate in her ankle that was inserted last year after Ashley legitimately fractured her tibia and fibula while in a battle royal. Ashley returned a couple weeks later seeking revenge on Jillian for injuring her. However, her return was short lived when on the June 8 edition of SmackDown!, Ashley was (kayfabe) suspended indefinitely after accidentally spilling Mr. McMahon's coffee on him.
