Much of Season 3 revolved around what Karen and Ray were trying to hide about their finances. Was Karen actually living in a mansion in Great Falls, or crashing at a condo? A pizza delivery from RHOP co-stars Ashley Darby, Gizelle Bryant, and Robyn Dixon attempted to reveal the truth, but no one came to the door.
In May of 2019, Karen launched her fragrance, La Dame. And during Season 5 of RHOP, fans were able to witness the spectacle of Karen’s homecoming celebration. It was fun to see where Karen grew up and meet some of her relatives.
But Karen and Ray’s relationship has been bumpy this season, especially with Ray withholding the words “I love you.” The duo met with a life coach on a recent episode of the show, and Ray finally thanked his wife for helping to bail him out of trouble with the IRS.

Bravo’s The Daily Dish reported that Karen opened up about the changes in her marriage on The Real Housewives of Potomac After Show. Ray confronted Karen on the October 18 episode of RHOP, commenting, “I was just wondering whether you realize that some of this fame and fortune has gone to your head.”
The Grand Dame just rode in a parade, waving to her hometown fans. When was the last parade in your honor, Ray? Karen stated, “Look, I am one big bubble of an ego, OK? Hello! So that shouldn’t even be a question.”

Karen discussed how running her business has affected her marriage. “It certainly had an impact on us, because I’m dedicated to my brand. I’m dedicated to building my business one stone at a time, and I was guilty of not striking a balance with that, and it did not help my marriage at all,” Karen remarked. “I think it made Ray feel less important to me, which was not the case.”
She explained, “I was hungry for the success. I wanted to make my parents proud, and that’s what really took me away from my marriage, the memory of them.”
Karen added, “How I was raised. What I was taught to do. If you’re going to do something, you’ve got to give it your best.”
In the video interview, Karen also talked about how her identity has changed. “I’ve been married to Ray for 24 years. For 17 years, my name was not Karen, it was Ray’s wife, Brandon’s mom, or Rayvin’s mom, which was super cool,” the entrepreneur said. “I think it was very challenging for Raymond to see me grow outside of that role.”

Karen seemed to hint that their marriage is still adjusting. “Ray and I are facing a situation which is where do we go from here? Because it’s easy when you have the kids and you have to raise them,” Karen commented. “You know what to do.”
The RHOP star added, “But when your children are grown, you’re left with each other like, ‘You still here?’” It is sad to watch this duo struggling with the shifting dynamics in their relationship.
“And I thought my marriage was strong enough to take anything. I misjudged. I misjudged,” Karen stated.
