The ladies of Real Housewives Of Potomac spent the entire second season in an uproar over Karen Huger’s abrupt sell of her lavish Potomac home that came with no explanation, and unfortunately it appears that Karen’s strategy to stay mum on the subject during filming has backfired with the story now being left to be exposed by the Washington Post. Dive into the details of Karen and Ray’s financial woes below.
-Washington Post reports;
Her husband, software exec Ray Huger, whom she has called “the black Bill Gates,” owes nearly $1.5 million in back-due federal taxes and his company owes more than $3 million, according to public records. A major plot point of the show, whose finale was last weekend, involved cast members questioning whether the couple’s finances were as gold-plated as they portrayed them. Fueling the on-screen speculation was the Hugers’ sale of their Potomac home in August for $1.685 million, far less than its listing price of $2.5 million and its county-assessment value of $2.37 million.
It seems the suspicious pals were right: Something’s amiss. The government has a $1.468 million lien against Ray Huger, 70, a former IBM executive who founded software and consulting company Paradigm Solutions in 1991, according to an April 26 filing in Fairfax County Circuit Court. Paradigm Solutions, where Huger is the president and chief executive, also has a $3.06 million lien against it, Montgomery County Circuit Court records show. -Washington Post
