Karen Huger and husband Ray Huger have moved into a new home, but the ladies of The Real Housewives of Potomac think there is something fishy about it. Now, news emerged that Karen’s husband and his company owe millions in federal taxes. Could it be the real reason that the couple has to change zip code?
Software executive Ray Huger owes the federal government around $1.5 million in back taxes, according to The Washington Post. His company, Paradigm Solutions, which he founded in 1991 after leaving IBM, has a $3.06 million overdue taxes, as shown in Montgomery County Circuit Court records. In a brief interview, Ray said:
“It’s a private matter; it’s being addressed.”
Karen and Ray’s Potomac home was put on the market with an asking price of $2.5 million. However, they sold it for just $1.685 million in August, even less than the county-assessment value of $2.37 million. The couple has moved to a nine-bedroom property in Great Falls, Virginia.
The 54-year-old reality star had been a subject of rumors in The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 after she moved out of Potomac without telling her cast mates about it. In an interview with Aol.com, she said she didn’t feel she needed to tell them about her home and that it was “none of their business.” Nonetheless, she said she forgives everyone for all the gossips and talks behind her back.
In the final episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2, Karen refused to give answers to the questions about her big move, via BuddyTV. But she threw an Indian-African themed housewarming party in her new home. She initially thought of not inviting all the ladies because she felt that some of them wanted to bring her down. In the end, she extended the invitation to everyone. The party is a success, but the girls were suspicious about the lack of furniture and why Karen and 70-year-old Ray would want to rent a place down there.
While Bravo is yet to confirm a new season of The Real Housewives of Potomac, people are wondering whether Karen would still be qualified to be part of it now that she left Potomac for good.
The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 reunion airs on Sunday, July 9, at 8/7c on Bravo.
