Karen Huger is an African American socialite and actress who lives in Potomac, an affluent neighborhood in Maryland. Although now a resident of Maryland, she is originally from neighboring Virginia. It is in Spring Grove, Virginia that she was born in 1963 to African American parents who raised their large family in relative comfort on a big family farm. She only left the farm upon completion of her high school studies to attend University of Virginia where she obtained her degree. After completing her university studies she married Raymond Huger. Raymond, an IT expert, worked for IBM for close to 25 years before founding his own highly successful IT company, Paradigm Solutions International. Together they have two children- a son and a daughter. The son, Brandon, is 27 years-old and a graduate of two universities- Morehouse College and Georgetown University. The daughter, Rayvin, is 17 years-old and in her final high school year.
Although now relatively well known Karen’s acting career only began with her role as a wealthy housewife living in a wealthy African American neighborhood of Potomac, Maryland in the reality television series ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’. In the series, Karen is well known for the extravagant parties she often throws in her house for her friends. It is in these parties that most of the events in the series take place. Additionally, with her 17 year-old daughter soon completing high school and joining college, Karen is depicted in the series as being overly worried about what will become of their house and the relationship with her husband when the daughter finally leaves as they will remain only two.
For much of her 19 years of marriage, Karen has been a housewife. Her role in ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’ is her first acting job. However, in spite of this, she is estimated to be worth $18 million in 2019. Much of this wealth is derived from her acting and modeling career. Together with her husband, they are estimated to be worth $72 million as her husband’s lucrative IT career has made him a multi-millionaire with a net worth of $54 million.
